Lilyfield home with views of Leichhardt Oval up for sale

DIEHARD Wests Tigers fans have the chance of a lifetime — to watch every game at Leichhardt Oval live from the comfort of their own home.

The only catch is they will need to shell out $2.7 million for the home first, although the views from the top floor bedroom may be worth it.

The property is at 11 Chapel St in Lilyfield, which is just one street away from the spiritual home of the Tigers.

The house itself has five large bedrooms and four bathrooms, but it is the view of the Tigers Fortress that is sure to catch the eye of buyers.
Due to the home having two levels, the house overlooks the ground.

A balcony from one of the bedrooms will give the new owners the chance to soak in the atmosphere and ensure they never miss another moment of Benji Marshall magic again.

Leichhardt Oval has a long association with rugby league, playing host to the Balmain Tigers since 1934.
When Balmain merged with Western Suburbs in 1999 to create the Wests Tigers, they adopted the ground as one of three home grounds and have played a portion of their home games there ever since.

Listing agent Adrian Oddi of BresicWhitney Balmain said the views were a bonus for most interested parties, but had attracted one hardcore Tigers fan.

“Outside of selling the house next door 10 years ago I haven’t seen anything else with that outlook,” Mr Oddi said.
There won’t be enough time for the new owners to get in before the Tigers next home game in round 16 versus the Titans, but if you act quickly you could secure it and be on the balcony watching in round 23 when the Tigers take on competition favourites St George in a suburban footy showdown.

Going by the first photo the view isn’t as good as I had imagined from that house.

That view doesn’t look as good as you would expect. You wouldn’t catch much of the game unless it was all played up the other end. Good advertising to bring people in.

Three games a year with a limited view for $2.7 million. Bargain.

You can buy 4 homes in Adelaide for that price & still afford to fly in fly out to watch the 3 Leichhardt Oval Games.

Only 30 Minutes to The McLaren Vale - Best wines on the Planet & better than being in a car Park on Parramatta Road. :slight_smile: :slight_smile:
