Anmer Hall

It has been disclosed that Anmer Hall is to be the family home of TRH The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Anmer Hall is situated in the Norfolk village of Anmer, about two miles east of The Queen's residence at Sandringham.

It was leased by TRH The Duke and Duchess of Kent as their country house from 1972 until 1990.

Anmer Hall has formed part of the Sandringham estate since 1898. It is a late-Georgian house, of brick and tile to the front elevations, and of Carstone and tile to the rear and north.

The long front comprises eleven bays, with a three-bay central pediment, and the house has two storeys and dormers, with a bell tower slightly off centre.

The ground-floor windows are set in blank arches and there is a semicircular porch on two Tuscan columns.

In 1990, The Duke and Duchess of Kent left Anmer Hall, since when it has been leased to the Everett family.

THE DUKE and Duchess of Cambridge will move into their official London home at Kensington Palace this summer:

Apartment 1A, which is being renovated, was previously home to The Princess Margaret. The property, which has five bedrooms and three reception rooms, has had to have asbestos removed and undergo rewiring and an overhaul of its antiquated heating and plumbing systems.
