If "It is a truth universally acknowledged that every man of good fortune must be in want of a wife," it must also be acknowledged that fans of the BBC miniseries of Pride and Prejudice will be grabbing their bonnets in anticipation of the sale of Luckington Court in the Cotswolds.
Agents Woolley & Wallis have listed the estate, which was the location for the Bennet family home of Longbourn in the 1995 miniseries starring Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle, with a guide price of GBP7,750,000 (approx. AUD 13,316,000). The property is an 11th Century, 8 bedroom house with "original Tudor features and 16th Century remodeling."
Fans will also be delighted to hear of the 7 bathrooms, 5 further dwellings and farm buildings, and that the “little pretty-ish wilderness" Miss Bennett took a turn in with Lady Catherine Debourgh actually extends to a sprawling estate, taking in over 60 hectares of permanent grassland and woodland, including frontage to the Avon river.
If the chance to live the life of Elizabeth Bennett at Longbourn wasn’t enough, it’s a stunning property in it’s own right with a long history. See the full listing here.
