Property Match of the Day – Norwich City v Leicester City
If you were a millionaire Premier League footballer, what sort of new homes would you be considering living in? That’s the question the Whathouse.com team has been asking itself ahead of Lieicester City’s trip to Norwich this weekend, and we’ve come up with a couple of fantastic new build homes that should fit the bill.
When money’s no object, these house-hunters can afford to be pretty choosy and they’ll be looking for a combination of practicality and that all-important ‘wow factor’.
These players need a straightforward commute to the training ground all week but they’ll also be expecting something special from the specification and location. Some may seek the limelight in a central location while others may value privacy and seclusion in an exclusive gated plot.
