Thatched Cottage That Backs Onto Tiger Enclosure On Sale For £375,000
A quaint, three-bedroom cottage in Norfolk is yours to snap up for £375,000 ($494,812), but before you start envisaging yourself living there and lining that deposit up, you should probably know that it has a slight catch - or maybe a bonus, depending on how you feel about big cats.
The property, which is located in Filby in Great Yarmouth, backs onto the tiger enclosure at Thrigby Hall Wildlife Gardens. This means your immediate neighbours are, indeed, stripy, carnivorous predators.
The online listing from estate agents Minors & Brady bills the house as 'the full Tiger King experience', giving a wild twist to the otherwise typical cottage.
Along with an entrance hall, living room, open plan dining and kitchen area, family bathroom, water closet and three bedrooms, the home has a small courtyard area and a driveway.
Out in the garden, however, things are a little less straightforward.
"A charming, thatched cottage which is truly one-of-a-kind, no other property like it around... the property backs onto the Tiger enclosure at Thrigby Hall giving you the full Tiger King experience on your doorstep!" the listing says.
"A truly one off opportunity to purchase a unique property with lots of character, beautifully presented throughout and within a sought-after location."

Before you start worrying about having to share your morning coffee with a bunch of tigers, the estate agents add that the garden is 'fully enclosed via panelled fencing' and merely 'backs on to the Wildlife Park benefiting from tigers at the bottom of the garden'.
Inside there's plenty of 'stunning open fireplaces' and 'solid wood flooring', along with exposed brickwork and beams - not that those features will get much a look-in, given what they're competing with.
The bench, table, chairs and umbrella in the back garden are also included within the house sale, meaning you're all set for a bit of tiger-spotting as soon as you move in.
As for the location, Filby is an 'award-winning village in the RHS in-Bloom competitions' and also boasts a 'vibrant and friendly community spirit'.
Unspoilt beaches are a stone's throw away so that you can enjoy the beautiful Norfolk coastline, while there are also lots of 'cosy pubs and restaurants' nearby if you want a night away from your tiger pals.
