Research by Nationwide Building Society timed to coincide with the start of the football season shows the continuing growth of house prices in Hammersmith and Shepherds Bush.
Homes near Chelsea’s and Queens Park Rangers’ grounds are the highest average values in the country. They are beaten in Nationwide’s house price growth league only by those in Haringey, near Spurs’ White Hart Lane stadium, which have grown 32 per cent over the last year in a post-riot bounce.
However, over the last 10 years, Hammersmith & Fulham, home to both Stamford Bridge (Chelsea) and Loftus Road (QPR), has seen house prices rise by 110 per cent.
House prices around Wembley have increased by 23 per cent year on year between June 2013 and June 2014, which would put it joint fourth in the league table if it were home to a premier league club.
