The Berkshire village of Bucklebury has become synonymous with the Middletons, the family of the Princess of Wales.
As well as her parents, her brother and sister own property locally. And now is your chance to become their neighbours – although you will need pockets to do so.
A four-bedroom detached family home on Bucklebury Common is for sale for £1.15million. It is a doer-upper with ‘huge potential’, according to the estate agents Dudley Singleton and Daughter.

The renovation project needs a substantial amount of money to turn it into a luxury family home.
