Wimbledon wins the property grand slam with pricier houses than the US, French and Australian Opens

Can Murray win Wimbledon?

It’s the question on everyone’s lips, but when it comes to the property grand slam, it’s certainly us Brits left holding the trophy.

Wimbledon is the priciest area of all the tennis season’s biggest tournament, serving up an average house price of £745,000.

If you want to get even more up close to the London tennis club and its star-filled courts, it will set you back a few more pennies however, with just under £1.4m needed to get over the line on a property purchase in Wimbledon Village.

The famous south west London spot even experienced a three per cent drop in house prices since Djokovic took the Wimbledon title last year, but it still trumps the price of properties near the venues of the Australian, French and US Opens according to data compiled by eMoov.

Melbourne’s bohemian Fitzroy close to Melbourne Park where the championship is held proves the second most expensive spot at a cost of £650,000 for the average property.

Meanwhile the 16th arrondissement in the heart of Paris, home to the French Open at Roland Garros, and Flushing Meadows in New York where the US Open is held, come in slightly cheaper - or under the half a million mark at least.
