A rare opportunity has arisen to become neighbours with the Queen, after a stunning grade II listed house went on sale in the heart of the Royal Sandringham estate in Norfolk.

Royal fans have the chance to live next door to Her Majesty if they buy Station House in the village of Wolferton.

It sits opposite Wood Farm where Prince Philip spent his retirement.

Station House was given its name as it was home to Wolferton Railway Station’s conductor and was heavily used by the royal family from the mid 1800’s to the mid 1900’s, as they travelled to Sandringham.

‘Set in the heart of the royal Sandringham Estate, Station House is a stunning family home and a truly unique property,’ Sowerby’s said.

‘”Rarely available” is a phrase used frequently by estate agents but in the case of Station House this can not be emphasised enough: this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to occupy an individual and historic home in a prestigious location.’

Station House has three reception rooms, including a snug, as well as a garden room and an impressive kitchen with an Aga.

Sowerby’s said that the kitchen has a ‘high vaulted ceiling’, with an adjacent separate utility room.

Upstairs there is a main suite with en-suite bathroom with a roll-top bath and dressing room.

Wolferton Station, also known as The Royal Station, was opened in 1862 with a single track connecting King’s Lynn to a new station at Hunstanton.  

That year, Queen Victoria bought the Sandringham estate for the Prince of Wales — the future King Edward VII. The royal family then started to use the line in their travels.

In the late 1890’s the railway station gained a second track as it became more heavily used by the royals. A new building was also built on site to host royal visitors and theirs guests on arrival and departure. 

It was last used in 1965 by the Queen, and has since been restored for visitors to explore the site’s history.
