A new property in the leafy lanes of St George’s Hill has just hit the market and looks sure to attract intrest from Chelsea FC stars known to frequent the Surrey Golden Triangle.

Any Chelsea stars looking to follow in the footsteps of John Terry, Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba by investing in the Golden Triangle property hotspot in Surrey may have had their heads turned by a new listing that has just hit the market.

A five-bedroom property in the hugely sought-after St George's Hill private estate was listed on Rightmove last week for a cool £4 million and is just five miles from the Cobham home of the Chelsea FC training ground.

The leafy lanes of Cobham and nearby Elmbridge suburbs boast some of the country's most elegant and most expensive properties and, as a result, are an attraction for Premier League stars. The big-money buyers investing in the area in recent history has led to the area being touted as the Surrey Golden Triangle.

Modern Blues legends John Terry, Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba are all known to have lived in the area, as well as celebs including Sir Cliff Richard, Mick Jagger, Andy Murray and Kate Winslet.

The £4 million property on Rodona Road has over two acres of land and is sold with consent to build a brand new home of more than 14,750 square feet.

The images of the potential property look incredibly grand with a long stone driveway leading up to the impressive white house. The home would have balconies that are to-die-for with expansive gardens - the mind boggles at the thought of a Great Gatsby style party in its luxurious lodgings.

Writing about the Golden Triangle in Surrey, estate agents Savills said: “For many years this affluent Surrey borough has been home to some of the most influential business leaders in the country. But it wasn’t until Chelsea Football Club opened its new training ground in Cobham in 2007, that Elmbridge was propelled into the headlines. As an influx of wealthy celebrity footballers looked to acquire property, the tiny borough became known as the Beverly Hills of Britain.

“Ever since, the golden triangle of Cobham, Esher and Weybridge (and many of the villages dotted in between) has grown in status, attracting celebrities from the world of sport, media and entertainment, so that today it is internationally recognised as the best place in which to buy a property in the UK outside London.”
