You can now live next door to Prince William and Kate Middleton

A two-bedroom cottage next to the Duke and Duchess' Norfolk home is now available for lease.

Members of the public now have the chance to call Wills and Kate their neighbours, as the next-door property to the royal home is available for rent.

The stone and brick home, at 20 Cherry Tree, Anmer is only a short distance from the tree-lined entrance to Anmer Hall - Wills and Kate's country mansion that was gifted to them by the Queen as a wedding present in 2011.

The quaint country cottage is listed for £658 (AUD $1,183.92) a month, and comes newly refurbished with a large garden and off-street parking. 

The Sandringham Estate is letting the property to the public, although it comes with a list of conditions.

The listing warns applicants of steep stairs and a strict no cats policy, although,"dogs may be considered on a house by house basis." This could be a request from the Queen, who has shown her preference and affection for dogs, owning several corgi's throughout her lifetime. 

The real estate company is opening the house a primary residence only, and will give priority to local people from the village, although people moving to Norfolk will also be considered. 

While the listing will be flooded with applicants, the real estate agency revealed that tenants will not be chosen on a first in, first served basis - rather, carefully chosen to who would best suit the property.

The cottage is part of the small country town in Norfolk;  Anmer, which is home to only 29 properties and a total of 63 people, so the chosen applicant must become part of the close-knit community. 

The royals have been staying at Anmer for decades, with the village also being home to the Queen's Sandringham Estate. 

The small, quiet nature of the village allows the royals to escape their busy life and enjoy the quiet country lifestyle. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge chose to stay at their country retreat after the birth of their first son, Prince George in 2013.
