An estate of at least 70 acres in Berkshire, England is reportedly under offer, and it’s rumored that Pippa Middleton and her husband James Matthews are the lucky buyers.
The property—Bucklebury Farm—was originally listed for £1.5 million (about $2 million) and went off the market after less than a week, according to the Daily Mail. Agents confirmed the property is under offer without sharing who’s behind it, citing confidentiality. A spokesperson for Middleton and Matthews, meanwhile, seemed to confirm the purchase without exactly confirming it, telling the Daily Mail that the so-called potential purchase is a “business opportunity” but denying rumors the couple will move there.
While it’s unclear if the couple is in the process of buying the land and what they’ll do with it should that be the case, the purchase would make a lot of sense. The estate lies minutes away from the $6 million Middleton family home and is less than two hours west of London, where Middleton and Matthews live in a more than $22 million, five-story mansion.
Back in 1986, Bucklebury Farm hosted six acres of strawberry fields. Currently, the estate includes a deer park, café, glamping pods, and pretty much every farm animal you can think of—goats, chickens, guinea pigs, lambs, donkeys, and more. There’s also an adventure playground with go-karts, an obstacle course, and indoor play area for kids. Only time will tell what's in store for this grand estate!
