Jane Austen novels can leave you longing for a simpler time, when you could spend your days strolling around decadent country grounds without a phone call or a siren disrupting your peace.
Well, it seems you could soon get a bit of that yourself, as the Bennets’ house from the BBC’s TV adaptation of Pride and Prejudice – which starred Colin Firth (Mr. Darcy) and Jennifer Ehle (Elizabeth Bennet) – is now on the market for offers in excess of £6 million.
In 1995, Luckington Court was used as Longbourn, the Bennet family home. It’s located in Chippenham, Wiltshire, and is built using creamy Cotswold stone. It also has a potential Royal connection, as the property sits on the site of a manor owned by King Harold II, who was killed in the Battle of Hastings in 1066.
The Grade II-listed house has eight bedrooms and seven bathrooms, plus 18 acres of farming land. The property is surrounded by a ring fence of permanent pasture and woodland, so you can frolic through the countryside and live out your Pride and Prejudice fantasies.
