Live Next Door To Pemberley for £3mLymewater Hall: a six-bedroom detached home in Stockport, Greater Manchester. It's a six-bedroom detached home which boasts a statement staircase, home gym, cinema room, wine cellar and games room. But more importantly, it backs onto Lyme Hall - a beautiful National Trust property, famous for being the setting of Mr Darcy's plush Pemberley pad in the 1995 BBC series (and home to the infamous lake). So if you want to be Mr Darcy's neighbour now is your chance. Lymewater Hall is up for sale, for the low low price of...£3million!
The property, previously a disused waterworks constructed in 1942, was purchased by Danish architect Tomas Bur Andersen in 2005 and transformed into a luxury modern masterpiece. We'd have preferred the property to be more about Georgian elegance rather than modern glass and chrome fittings, but as far as location goes you can't really beat it.
