Lady Violet Crawley’s 17th-century mansion has become available on to the market for £3.95 million.
The property, which will be familiar among Downton Abbey fans, has been put up for sale as the final series of the award-winning show comes to a close.
Byfleet Manor, known as Dower House on the hit ITV show, is located in Surrey and was built in 1886. Situated among almost twenty acres of stunning gardens, the house has regularly appeared in the background during the six years of the show.
Following on from previous appearances in eminent period dramas, Cranford and Poirot, the manor was selected as a result of its Georgian architecture and grand proportions. Downton Abbey’s production designer, Donal Woods says, “We wanted to deliberately pull Violet back in to that Georgian world.”
The ‘Downton Room’ on the ground floor may be one of the home’s most recognisable rooms and the property boasts 6,000 sq. ft. of space that is laid out over four floors. With eight bedrooms, four reception rooms and a number of outbuildings, Byfleet Manor is sure to generate plenty of interest.
Within fifteen miles of Heathrow Airport and just over twenty miles from the centre of London, this iconic home is in a prime location.
Despite its great travel links, Byfleet Manor is situated just outside a quiet village and is relatively private.
The mansion was bought for £1 million by Julie Hutton, a local business woman, a decade ago and is currently up for offer through Savills.
