Kate Middleton is reportedly busy with renovations at the royal country home in Anmer Hall in Norfolk. The Duchess of Cambridge is overlooking the last minute details, before the 10-bedroom home becomes ready to live in.
The country home is situated 120-miles away from London and is perched upon the massive parkland of the Queen's Sandringham estate. The place is away from the hustle-bustle of the city and the royal couple apparently wants to raise Prince George in it.
The most recent addition to the home is a new roof and a critical extension. A lot of changes have been made to the so-called "garden room". The room is 16'X16' in size and has a glass panel for door. Middleton and Prince William are reported to have erected a column that will allow the growth of climbers and shrubs to provide shade and privacy.
"It's like a fancy farmhouse," a source told People. "It isn't grandiose. But it's a great, friendly family environment."
Moreover, a room is also being made for Prince George's nanny Maria Borrallo, though the room is situated away from the main house.
Reports also say that some of the old wood stores are being converted into a plush kitchen, lounge and a set of bedrooms. The country home also boasts of an outdoor swimming pool and a tennis court.
The responsibility of renovating the house has been given to Prince Charles's favorite architect, Charles Morris, and Middelton has also designated high-end designer Ben Pentreath to do the interiors.
Before embarking on the New Zealand and Australia tour, Middleton was spotted surfing for interiors. At Knights Oriental Rugs in Henley-on-Thames, she picked out some rugs, as per reports.
"She wants to put her own influence on [Anmer] because she wants it to be her own family home," said owner Simon Knight.
The country home is a gift from Prince William's grand mother Queen Elizabeth.
