Calling all Jane Austen aficionados!

The equestrian estate where the hit 1995 BBC television series “Price and harmwas filmed hit the market for $7.3 million.

Onscreen, and beyond that property, the series starred Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy and Jennifer Ehle as Elizabeth Bennet.

In real life, Austen wrote the acclaimed book in 1813, but the house dates to the 11th century. It was later purchased by the Fitzherbert family in 1632, a prominent family known for their coal mining business.

Comprised of eight bedrooms and seven bathrooms, the property is Grade II listed, meaning it is “of particular interest, justifying every effort to preserve it”.

Known as Luckington Court in the English South West Wiltshire village, the property is set in a massive 156 acres of rolling countryside.

The property comprises 8 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms.

Also serving as an equestrian facility, the property has its own outdoor riding school.

In addition, there are several other cottages: the Rose Garden Cottage, the Coach House, the Courtyard, the Studio and the Court Farm Cottage. There is also a range of farm buildings and a stable.

The surrounding area is the site of a mansion owned by King Harold II before his death at the Battle of Hastings in 1066, according to the listing.

This is the second time the domain has come up for sale. It was first listed in 2018, when it hit the market for the first time in 70 years, for a higher price of $10.85 million.

It was renovated in 2003, but many period details — including decorative woodwork, stone and molded fireplaces, and sash windows — remain.

Woolley and Valais keep the list.
