Eastenders’ Shane Richie House Hunting Costa del Sol Property
There are some great things about Albert Square – there’s the local pub, the busy market, a café, a laundrette, and a train station that no one uses. Despite all these strengths it’s still nothing compared to the Costa del Sol.
With the Costa del Sol having one of the best climates
in the world and only 2.5 hours from the uk, it no wonder that
more and more stars are coming here.
This is a fact that many, including actor Shane Richie, understand perfectly well. Shane is most-known for his portrayal of Alfie Moon in Eastenders. The Olive Press newspaper are now reporting that this 52 year old actor is looking for property in the Costa del Sol region and has been for a few months now.
It was believed that Richie wanted to find a beachside property in Calahonda but now he had his wife, Christie Goddard, are moving inland to take a look at some of the more traditional townhouses of Marbella.
Richard and Goddard married in 2007 and have three children together. No doubt a Costa del Sol property would make an excellent summer getaway for the family who are currently based in London.
Richie gained his love for Spain when he spent a lot of time in the Costa Brava while he was filming the hit ITV show Benidorm. An Olive Press source says that Richie wants to keep his options open. He would still prefer a property in Calahonda but he would be open to purchasing a villa, a townhouse, or a beachside property.
It’s not unheard of for popular British soap stars to find themselves falling in love with the Costa del Sol. Beverley Callard, known for playing Liz McDonald in Coronation Street, has been living along the coast for many years now. Richie’s fellow Eastenders actor Mike Reid, known for playing Frank Butcher, spent his final years in and around Marbella before he passed away in 2007.
There are a number of other TV stars who have lived in theCosta del Sol at some point or another including Cilla Black, Freddie Star, and Elliot Wright; former star of The Only Way is Essex.
