Got a spare (approx.) $7.7 million floating around and really quite fancy yourself living like a dowager countess?

Lady Violet Crawley’s home in Downton Abbey (which is actually in Surrey, 32 kilometres from London and called Byfleet Manor) has been put on the market by Savills Weybridge.

You too could swan about like Violet Crawley, coming up with withering put-downs and playing bridge in your eight bedrooms, four living areas and 7.6 ha.

The house has quite the royal connection. Its history traces back to 1086. In 1307 it was a hunting lodge for royals, and the home was rebuilt in 1686.

According to Savills, King Edward I and II stayed in the home and Edward III gifted it to his mother Isabella.

Henry VIII also apparently spent time at the home in his childhood. The last royal owner was the Queen Consort Anne of Denmark, wife of King James I.

The home was also featured in 2014’s Into the Woods as Cinderella’s (Anna Kendrick).

Earlier this year it was announced that Downton Abbey would end after its 6th season.
