You Can Buy Mr. Darcy’s House

1 minute read

You might not be able to live out the rest of your days with Pride and Prejudice’s fictional Mr. Darcy, but you can spend them at his British estate.

Wentworth Woodhouse — the residence that reportedly inspired Jane Austen’s depiction of Darcy’s home, Pemberley — is reportedly going on the market for a mere $10.9 million. A spokesperson for U.K. estate agency Savills told the Daily Mail that the manor will go on the market “in the new year.”

The estate will serve as the perfect muse for all that Pride and Prejudice fan fiction you’ve been dying to write.

The estate, which has five miles worth of corridors, was home to the fourth Earl Fitzwilliam, who reportedly inspired Darcy himself.

While $10.9 million might seem like a bargain, keep in mind that there is an estimated $65.6 million of required repairs.

Worth it.
