Posted 24 September 2015 by Keith Osborne
What kind of new homes would you be buying if you were a Premier League footballer earning thousands of pounds every week? That’s the question the Whathouse.com team has been asking itself ahead of the clash between Stoke City and Bournemouth this weekend.
We’ve come up with a couple of amazing new build homes which we think are perfect for a top-flight football professional, providing easy access to the training facilities and home stadium and with the all-important ‘wow factor’, whether it be a rural retreat away from city life or a town centre pad. These top-end properties have everything that someone playing in the best football league in the world might expect.
Here are our suggestions for the best new homes available for these teams’ players right now...
For the Stoke City team...
Birchwood House, Hoar Cross, Burton-upon-Trent, Staffordshire (Jackson-Stops & Staff) - £2.95million
Birchwood House is a beautiful, architect-designed one-off property set in no fewer than 26 acres of Staffordshire countryside, offering a secluded and superbly specified new home complete with a luxury leisure suite. It’s just 40 minutes’ drive from Stoke’s Clayton Wood training ground.
The house, set at the end of a long drive, is constructed of Siberian larch, brick and cream rendered elevations in a thoroughly contemporary design. The stylish exterior is matched by a sophisticated, chic and spacious interior, with huge rooms and an open-plan layout. The interior is totally bespoke and engineered with a “no expense spared” mantra. The fittings include a white gloss and granite-topped kitchen, stone/oak floors and designer fittings to the wet rooms, together with digitally controlled lighting, surround sound, electric curtains and blinds and underfloor heating.
