Ever wanted to be the nextdoor neighbour to the Queen? Well, here’s your chance. A station master’s home on the Sandringham Estate has gone up for sale.

Sandringham, for those not in the know, is one of the British royal family’s many, many homes. Covering 20,000 acres in the middle of Norfolk, it’s famously Liz’s favoured residence. And it could soon be your fave residence, too – if you’ve got a £1.2 million ($1.58 million) to spare, that is.

Station House got its name because it was originally meant for the train conductor at nearby Wolferton railway station. This was the primary transit stop for royals visiting Sandringham House, which is around two miles away. The Station House was built in 1898, and is now a Grade II-listed building.

But enough with the historical rubbish. What’s Station House actually like? Well, it’s got three double bedrooms, two bathrooms and two reception rooms. There’s also a ginormous garden, with a sizeable lawn and a pleasant terrace. Aside from all its royal connections, it’s genuinely a pretty nice place. Here are a few more pics:

Now, of course, interest in this kind of thing likely depends pretty heavily on what you think of the British monarchy. Living at Station House could either be a total dream or unimaginably boring – but either way, at least you might get the chance to see some lizard people up-close, eh?

If you’re interested in finding out more about the property – or even putting in an offer – check out the listing on the estate agent’s website.
