I’m a Celebrity fan? Jungle-themed mansion inspired by owner’s travels to Africa, Asia and Thailand in the not-so-exotic location of Sunderland goes on the market for £2m

Fans of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! can live in their own piece of the ‘jungle’ in a stunning mansion – and it is located right on the doorstep of Ant and Dec’s hometown. 

The 142-year-old five-bedroom Ashbrooke Cottage wouldn’t look out of place in the Australian outback or within South Africa’s National Kruger Park. 

But you’ll actually find it in less exotic surroundings in Sunderland, just 14 miles from presenters Ant and Dec’s beloved Newcastle.    

The Victorian home has been designed by its owners from their travels to Africa, Asia and Thailand. 

Tropical plants and tall trees line the boundaries of the sprawling property which boasts large outdoor terraces including a jacuzzi and spa.

The estate agent said: ‘The use of conservation materials which reflect Asian, Thai and African design contrast very well with modern wiring, plumbing and kitchen facilities to create beautiful living spaces with amazing interior design, lighting, architecture and fireplaces.

‘The ground floor at upper level from Ashbrook Road leads into the reception hall, bedrooms and further bedrooms above, all of which have amazing, individual layouts, designs, styling and taste.

‘The fabulous staircase leads down to the lower ground level which provides the principal entertaining spaces with three large living rooms and a magnificent kitchen, as well as open terraces with glass balconies and beautiful entertaining areas including jacuzzi, spa and lovely open fireplaces for winter nights.

‘This house has great appeal throughout all seasons and the use of clever glazed windows, lanterns and bi folding doors opens up the light into the space throughout the whole of the year.

‘Ashbrooke Cottage has five bedrooms and three bathrooms as well as the four reception rooms and the numerous, beautifully fitted entertaining areas to the exterior.

‘The standards of design and the clever presentation throughout must be viewed to fully appreciate.

‘This is such an amazing and beautiful property, we are delighted to have been asked to find the future custodian of this outstanding, magnificent house.’
