For any die-hard Gooner with half-a-million pound to spare, what’s better than buying a property at the old Arsenal Stadium in Highbury, North London? The football stadium and former home ground of the Arsenal Football Club was originally built in 1913 on the site of a local college's recreation ground before it grew into the "Home of Football", as it was affectionately nicknamed. Over the decades, the stadium was redeveloped and expanded to accommodate the increasing number of Arsenal fans until it reached a bottleneck at the turn of the century. By then the stadium had only 38,000 seats, far too small to provide for every Arsenal fan. Further expansion of the stadium was out of question because it was surrounded on all sides by a residential area.
