If you’re a fan of Jane Austen’s classic 1813 romance novel, Pride and Prejudice, then you’ll agree with Austen that when it comes to living your dream life, in your dream house “distance is nothing when one has a motive.”
Because, let’s be honest, you’d have to be a pretty motivated Pride and Prejudice fan to move thousands of miles away to the Cotswolds to live in the manor house featured in the BBC TV series adaptation of Pride and Prejudice.
But, then again, if you’re a single lady or gent, perhaps this move could work its Austen magic and living in the Bennet family home would lead to meeting the love of your life.
Either way, the option to live your Austen-style dream life is now possible with Luckington Court, the creamy Cotswold stone manor house featured as the Bennet family estate, Longbourn, in the 1995 Pride and Prejudice TV series starring Colin Firth as Mr Darcy and Jennifer Ehle as Elizabeth Bennet, is now for sale.
Listed with Woolley & Wallis, the heritage listed house boasting eight bedrooms and seven bathrooms “with original Tudor features and 16th century remodelling”, plus five additional dwellings and extensive grounds including a “wild meadow orchard of mature apple and cherry trees with traditionally managed parkland on either side,” is on the market for £5,250,000 or approximately $9.2 million AUD.
