Are you a mega fan of the royals? Well, what if we told you that you could be the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s new neighbour? No, this is not a drill.
The cottage next door to Kate and William’s Anmer Hall home in West Norfolk is currently up for rent, meaning any member of the general public can put an offer in and live just metres away from the Cambridges.
The two bedroom property, 20 Cherry Tree, is being let out by the Sandringham Estate and believe it or not, it is actually quite affordable. The rent is only £700 a month, which is cheaper than most homes in cosmopolitan cities such as London – and a small price to pay to become best mates with Kate Middleton, of course.
The cottage, which has recently undergone refurbishment, comes unfurnished which means you can design the interior just how you like it. In fact, you could make the most of Aldi’s new affordable interiors range to get your hands on some chic home ware items for less if you really are thinking about submitting an application.
One thing you should know, however, is that the property has a strict ‘no cats allowed’ policy. But the official website does state that ‘dogs will be considered on a house by house basis,’ meaning you could very well move in with your dog. Perhaps he can go for walks with the royal’s spaniel, Lupo.
Meanwhile, if you’re a Norfolk resident then you could have a better chance of landing the house as the website explains: ‘Sandringham’s housing policy is to let properties as a primary residence, prioritising those who live and work locally.
However, that is not to say that those willing to move to the area will not be considered. ‘Properties are not let on a first come, first served basis, but rather on which prospective tenant is best suited to the property,’ the website continues.
So if you’re interested, get your application in while you can – we imagine it is in very high demand.
