A UNIQUE property which allows buyers to actually live inside a football stadium has gone on the market for £400,000.
The two bedroom flat has been built right on the corner of The Breyer Group Stadium in Leyton, East London – home to Leyton Orient Football Club.
Football enthusiasts will have the opportunity to save money on season tickets and watch every match from their balcony which looks right out onto the pitch.
Large windows in the open planned living and kitchen area also overlook the pitch and the fan seating area.
The property also features two double bedrooms and two bathrooms.
Estate agents Alexander Rose Estates listed the flat for sale on Friday for £400,000.
They said: “Any football enthusiasts will thank their wallets, saving themselves a season ticket for Leyton Orient Football Club by simply looking out the window to catch the action.
“Even before the final whistle, closing the windows puts things back in formation.
“With the through-ball it’s Alexander Rose Estates, lining up this two bed two bath lateral apartment in the corner (kick) of the third floor of this purpose built block.
“With enough space for a 5-a-side friendly within the 718sq ft floor plan, there is space for work, play and finally learning the offside rule.
“The flat’s North and West aspect, as well as the balcony, allow for a good amount of light to enter the flat though we recommend floodlights if kicking around in the dark.”
The rare sale has set tongues wagging on social media.
One person said: “How on earth did this get planning permission.”
Another wrote: “£400,000, are they having a laugh?”
A third wrote: “It’s all kicking off in Leyton.”
While a fourth commented: “This is amazing. If I won the lottery I’d be tempted to buy one.
“All comes with underground parking. You are five minutes from the tube and the majority of the noise will only be Saturday afternoon and Tuesday evening.
“It’s a bargain.”
