The red brick exterior, Georgian-style windows and pointed roofs ensure it is in keeping with the area's aesthetic. The exterior has manicured lawns, submerged flower beds and an abundance of trees. It's also set within one-and-a-half acres of beautiful grounds.

University of St. Andrews:

St Andrews

In September 2001, Kate enrolled at the University of St. Andrews following a gap year in Italy. Kate spent her first year living in St. Salvator's Hall, often referred to by students as "Sallies", which was split into male and female quarters. It was here that Kate met Prince William, and the pair eventually went on to live together with mutual friends at an off-campus apartment in the middle of town.

Anglesey home

Prince William and Kate moved to Anglesey in 2011, while he served there as an RAF Valley search and rescue pilot. The newlyweds rented this four-bedroom farmhouse on Bodorgan Home Farm, which offered them access to a private beach and had beautiful views of Newborough Forest.
