The Harry and Meghan effect has impacted book and fashion sales and Netflix views alike and now their golden touch appears to have hit the property market. 

A tiny cottage built in 1948 and located close to where the couple live has come on to the market for an eye-watering $5,575,000.

According to Zillow, in and around 2020 its estimated value was $2 million but the star-studded Santa Barbara neighborhood of Montecito has boomed even further following Harry and Meghan’s move there. 

The humble three-bedroom abode is located at 279 Santa Rosa Lane – just a seven-minute drive from where the Sussexes filmed their Netflix documentary at 888 Lilac Drive.
