‘Pride and Prejudice’ English Country Estate Is for Sale—With a Big Discount

Though fans looking to recreate the celebrated moment where Colin Firth, playing Mr. Darcy, emerged dripping wet from a lake may be disappointed.

A bit like dating in Jane Austen’s England, attracting a buyer for your historic country house can sometimes require a degree of patience.

The owners of Luckington Court in Wiltshire, a Grade II* listed property that was famously used as the location for the Bennet family home Longbourne in the BBC’s 1995 Pride and Prejudice mini-series, have slashed a third off the asking price to attract and seal the deal with their own figurative Mr. Darcy.
