Anmer Hall is located around 35 miles west of Norwich, and the royal couple spent 1.5 million upgrading the home before moving in in 2013.
It is a Georgian manor which was originally constructed in 1802 and features a swimming pool and tennis courts.
The interior design was done by Ben Pentreath, who also did their Kensington Palace apartment.
The couple based themselves there after welcoming their first child, Prince George, as it was also easier for Prince William’s job as a pilot with the East Anglian Air Ambulance Service.
The couple moved back to Kensington Palace, now their main residence, ready for Prince George to start school, but retain their country getaway.
Kensington Palace were contacted but declined to comment.
