Literary fans, Jane Austen obsessors and Colin Firth lovers, we just made your dreams come true. You're now able to live out your old English fantasies in the same place where Elizabeth Bennet lived.
Called Longbourn in "Pride and Prejudice", the manor that was used for BBC's 1995 TV adaption of the Bennet family home is for sale. According to Country Life, this is the first time in 70 years that the manor, which is actually called Luckington Court, has been placed on the market.

The estate "sits beautifully" on 156 acres in the small village of Luckington, in Wiltshire, England. According to Country Life, the site of the "archetypal English country house" was previously owned by King Harold in 1066. The stunning home went through a series of different renovations as it was passed on to different owners.
"Built in local creamy Cotswold stone, the present house was extended and remodelled around a 16th-century, or earlier, core by the Fitzherbert family, wealthy merchants from Bristol, who bought Luckington in 1632 and owned the estate until the early 1800s," Country Life said. It was remodeled again in 1921.
The seven bedroom, six bathroom house comes with paddocks and "beautifully maintained" gardens.
Mr. Darcy is not included.
