The Georgian brick-style home of Lady Violet Crawley, who is a character on the PBS show Downton Abbey, is for sale, and the manor will be reportedly sold when the series concludes after the sixth season.

Byfleet Manor, located in southwest London, is listed for $6.1 million, or £3.95 million. According to, the home has been owned by Julie Hutton for the last 10 years and is listed with a Savills agent.

The manor has been used as the Dower House for Downton Abbey since the show’s start in 2010. Lady Violet, who lives in the home, is played by Academy Award winner Maggie Smith.

The mansion of a home was built in 1686 and sits on 19 acres of land. It has eight bedrooms and was owned by the English royal family for more than 300 years. The property was later used as a training camp for World War II. It also made an appearance in Into the Woods as Cinderella’s home.

Savills expects the listing to receive international interest —from families and celebrities alike — because of the home’s history and pedigree.
