Literary Houses: Feast Your Eyes!

I promised you house porn? You get house porn.

Following along the lines of November's general theme of literary homes, I've culled photos of a few of the most jaw dropping estates used in film adaptations. It's all Austen today and it's all exteriors. Get ready for perfectly manicured gardens, columns columns columns and that lake where Colin Firth emerged dripping wet in the 1995 Pride and Prejudice BBC remake. You know what I mean.

Pride and Prejudice (2005): The home of the Duchess of Devonshire (Chatsworth House) was used for the exterior shots of 'Pemberley'
Pride and Prejudice (1995): Lyme Park was used for the exterior shots of Pemberley in the BBC mini-series (click for full photo)
Pride and Prejudice (1995): Sudbury Hall was also used for exterior shots of 'Pemberley'
Pride and Prejudice (2005): Burghley House was used to portray Rosings, Lady Catherine de Bourgh's house (click for full photo)

Thanks you for the pics! They just don't have "houses" like these around here, do they? I didn't like the 2005 movie anywhere near as much as the BBC mini-series, but can't decide which of the locales was better...I'd live in any of them, lol.
