Looking for the perfect present amongst all the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season? Well, look no further: Kate Middleton's old flat, the one she shared with her sister Pippa in Chelsea, is officially on the market.

This is not a drill. We repeat. This is not a drill.

The West London property is on sale, pricing at £1,950,000 ($2.5 million) and, according to The Sunday Times, is set to turn a profit of £1.2 million ($1.5million), if sold at the asking price.

The three-storey property showcases large windows across the interior, letting in floods of natural light, but that's not all. The flat boasts three bedrooms, one of those being a master bedroom with en-suite, as well as an additional family sized bathroom, a large living room and a stylish marbled kitchen.

Prior to the unforgettable royal wedding in 2011, which saw Kate became the Duchess of Cambridge, the Middleton sisters resided in the three-storey townhouse on Old Church Street, which their parents Michael and Carole Middleton bought in 2002 for £780,000. There is no indication yet as to why they are selling it.

Of course, nowadays neither sister has any need for what was once their bachelorette pad: Pippa and James Matthews and son Arthur spend their time getting cosy in their newly renovated £17 million mansion, while the Duke and Duchess, alongside children Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and newborn Prince Louis, spend their days in their luxurious twenty-room Kensington Palace.

But their loss is someone else's gain. The question now is, who is going to move in?
