Kate and Pippa Middleton’s Former London Apartment Is for Sale for $2.5 Million (Video)
If you can’t live in a castle, go for the next best thing: an apartment fit for a royal.
Well, that is, a royal before they actually became a royal, anyway. According to The Times, the Middleton family has put up the apartment once shared by Kate Middleton and her sister, Pippa, on the market for £1.95 million (just over $2.5 million USD).
By The Times’ calculations, the new market price could clear a cool £1.2 million (about $1.5 million) profit for the family.
But once you see the London flat, situated in the chic Chelsea neighborhood, you’ll understand why the place might be worth the money.
The apartment, located on Old Church Street, is a “well-appointed,” three-bedroom flat made up of three floors.
“The flat is accessed on the first floor and there is an internal flight of stairs which leads up to the second floor, comprising of a double reception room, kitchen and guest W/C. On the third floor there is a master ensuite with a picturesque view onto Justice walk and over the chimney pots of Old Chelsea,” it says on the apartment’s real estate listing.
Also on the third floor are two more bedrooms and a family bathroom. Not only would the new owners enjoy the incredible space but also “lovely morning light,” that continues throughout the day “as the sun beams through the reception room into the afternoon.”
Plus, you’ll own a bit of history as well, since this apartment was Kate Middleton’s last residence before marrying Prince William and becoming the Duchess of Cambridge.
According to Cosmopolitan, the Middleton family currently owns the apartment, which was bought in 2002 for £780,000 (about $978,000 USD). Clearly the family has more choices in palatial homes these days.
