How Much Does It Really Cost To Live Right Next To Prince Charles?

There is some exciting news for those in the market for a new home in the United Kingdom. After more than 70 years, the home that borders that of Prince Charles and Camilla, labeled The Elmestree House Estate, is up for sale. The New York Post reports that, for the first time since 1949, the Elizabethan style Estate is on the market.

In a statement made to the New York Post, head of Estates and Farm Agency at Strutt & Parker Realty, Matthew Sudlow shared that "Family owned estates such as Elmestree rarely come to the market and this estate is particularly special." He went on to add, "To find a house that is as architecturally pure as Elmestree in this part of the world, with many original features along with a model farmstead of this size intact, is remarkable."

Mansion Global reports that the home is a Grade II listing, meaning it is historically important and buyers must agree that any alterations made stay within specific guidelines.

It will cost a pretty penny to have Charles and Camilla as neigbors

According to the New York Post, the home is set on 117 acres of land surrounded by lakes and manicured gardens. The estate is a sprawling 19,000 square feet in size, with a connecting wing originally used as a carriageway until converted to a ballroom. There is plenty of room for mom, dad, and just about everyone you may know, with 11 bedrooms in the main house, four bedrooms in a connecting cottage, three bedrooms in an annex and two bedrooms in an additional cottage.

The estate is listed by Strutt and Parker realty, and you can find much more information on their Instagram page, including a variety of photos. The New York Post shares that the home is listed at $10.1 million, and is a one-minute drive (210 feet) from Prince Charles' Gloucestershire home, called Highgrove. According to MSN, the word on the street is that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Kate, could be potential buyers for this property, as they want to be closer to the Queen.
