Tyson Fury ‘returns home to new £1.7million property overlooking Morecambe Bay’
This is the luxury new £1.7m house which World Heavyweight boxing champion Tyson Fury has moved into with his family.
And appropriately for the ‘Gypsy King’, hundreds of his new neighbours live in caravans, which virtually surround the back of his property in Lancashire.
Tyson, 33, and his 31-year-old wife Paris and their six children recently moved from a £550,000 house overlooking Morecambe Bay to their new home over looking fields.
While the property is ringed by caravan sites, most of them are short lets, and occupied by seasonal holiday makers, rather than members of the traveller community which Tyson is proud to hail from.

Until two years ago, his own plot was occupied by a static caravan-style bungalow surrounded by decking and on the market for around £400,000.
But the previous owner knocked it down and put in its place the new, stone-clad salmon-coloured palace.
With a castellated front wall, the wrought-iron black and gold fence features lion motifs and four eagle sculptures on the gate posts. Signs also warn would-be intruders that the property is covered by CCTV.
The house was bought by the boxer’s firm Tyson Fury Ltd last December for £1.695m, according to Land Registry Records.
It adds to his property portfolio, which includes the modest family home in Morcambe. In 2018 Fury boasted that he had bought a mansion in Marbella, Spain, for around £6million, it was claimed. And back in May he suggested that he had purchased a sprawling property in Las Vegas, it was reported.
Fury and Paris share daughters Venezuela, 12, Valencia, three, and two month old Athena, and sons, Prince John James, nine, Prince Tyson II, four, and Prince Adonis, two.

Fury and his wife headed back to their new home on Tuesday morning following his epic victory over Deontay Wilder in Las Vegas at the weekend.
The boxer and his family are wedding to the less glamorous Lancashire coast than the glitzy party cities of LA or Las Vegas.
Speaking on an ITV documentary last year, Tyson said: ‘People say to me ”why don’t you live in California or America?” – why would I?’
‘Why would I abandon my own country for a bit of money and some fame?’
‘I love it. I would never leave Lancashire. It’s true beauty. If the weather was better, every house here would be a million quid.’
Residents in the town where Fury lives gush about their famous neighbour.

Pauline Wade, 75, said Fury ran over to help when he saw her take a tumble outside her home earlier in the year.
She explained: ‘He came straight over and asked ‘are you ok’ and he helped me up. He is a lovely man. He will always say ‘I’m going to the shops do you want anything?’
Christine Thornton, 72, added: ‘What he has achieved is fabulous and the whole town is proud of him, as it should be. You see him walking around, going shopping, and he always stops and talks to people.’

Meanwhile Lancaster’s Mayor Mike Greenall said on Tuesday: ‘On behalf of the whole district I’d like to send my whole hearted congratulations to Tyson on this magnificent achievement.’
He added that the residents were ‘proud’ to have a ‘champion in our midst’.
Paris revealed during an appearance on Loose Women last year that the family were in the process of moving house.
