Carole and Michael sold £1.6m house in 2012 and now live in a home three times the price

NewsCarole and Michael sold £1.6m house in 2012 and now live in a home three times the price

Carole Middleton, 68, and Michael Middleton, 73, live in a seven-bedroom home called Bucklebury Manor in Berkshire, where they have lived since 2012.

The home is currently estimated to be worth between £4.5million and £5million, which is an eye-watering price tag.

As well as seven bedrooms, the home has five reception rooms including an entrance hall, a drawing room, a dining room, a library and a sitting room.

In previous posts by Twitter fans, which have since been removed, it was shown that the property has two living rooms, which featured a muted colour scheme.

They also included a selection of armchairs and two traditional log fireplaces. Carole and Michael’s kitchen appeared to have a large wooden dining table.

The couple also had a lush conservatory with massive Velux windows and floor-to-ceiling windows.

Prince George spent the first few months of his life in Bucklebury Manor after Kate made the decision to spend more time around her family for support during her pregnancy.

Kate suffered from hyperemesis gravidarum which can be in certain cases life-threatening as it causes unrelenting nausea and vomiting for pregnant women.

Despite having all adult children who have their own partners and have moved out of Bucklebury Manor, Bucklebury Manor is still an important place for the Middleton children.

In fact, Pippa Middleton decided to have her wedding on her parent’s expansive grounds.

Pippa tied the knot with James Matthews in 2017 and the couple held their reception in a massive glass greenhouse that was placed in the grounds at Bucklebury Manor.

It is thought that Bucklebury Manor is a more private and less overlooked property than their former home, Oak Acre House.

Carole and Michael lived in Oak Acre House between 1995 and 2012. It had a few public access points, meaning Kate Middleton’s parents had to leave because of their daughter’s new royal status.

Oak Acre House received a lot of publicity around the time of the Prince and Princess of Wales’s engagement in November 2010 because Carole and Michael conducted a photoshoot outside the property.

Unlike their current home, Oak Acre House only had six bedrooms and was estimated to be worth between £1million and £1.6million.

Carole and Michael Middleton have lived in many homes over the years, including West View in Cock Lane in Berkshire which they lived in before Oak Acre House.

They purchased West View for £34,700 back in 1979, where the Princess of Wales, who was born in 1982, spent the very earliest years of her life.

The property is now said to be worth a staggering £748,000, which is just over 21 times more than what they paid for it.

The couple sold the house in 1995 for £158,000, despite enjoying the 16 years they spent at the Victorian property.

Kate attended Bradfield Church of England primary school which was just next door and also attended Brownies at the church hall nearby.

During the ownership, it is said that Michael Middleton made significant improvements to the house, including converting one of the bedrooms into a bathroom and extending the kitchen, which added to its value.
