A lavish family home built on the Queen’s Royal Sandringham Estate in the 19th Century has hit the market for $2.1 million (£1,195,000).

Station House, built in 1898, has been described as a once in a lifetime opportunity for a lucky individual or family to live in.

The historic home sits next to what was Wolferton Station, which was used by the Windsors when they travelled to their holiday home in Norfolk.

Framed with stunning golden gates, the entrance into the beautiful home opens to a wide reception hallway with tiled flooring and a turning staircase that rises to the first floor.

Boasting three bedrooms, the principal suite is a generously proportioned double bedroom with attractive fire surround, large windows with views towards the church, a sitting area within the turret space and an en-suite bathroom.

The massive garden is enclosed on all sides with brick walls and cast iron railings, with mature hedging to the front and side for privacy.

Shrubs surround the terrace seating area at the rear of the property and massive lawns with trees sprawled all around.

With lots of space for a tranquil setting, the garden provides many quiet and sunny areas to enjoy.

The lucky homeowner could live a literal 3.2km away from the Queen whenever she decided to holiday at Sandringham House.
