For the last five years, the historic Byfleet Manor in Surrey, England has been home to Downton Abbey's Lady Violet Crawley (played by Dame Maggie Smith). Now that the hit period drama is officially wrapping up (Season 6, currently in production, will be the last), this home has fittingly been put on sale to begin a new chapter. Built around 1686, the property was, according to the listing agent, "owned by the Crown for over 300 years during which time several royal figures lived at, gifted, destroyed and rebuilt the house." More recently, the home's brick exterior also served as Cinderella's house in the recent Oscar-nominated film Into the Woods.
Inside, there are eight bedrooms and four reception rooms spread over 6,000 square feet. Sitting at the end of a country lane, the property includes 19 landscaped acres. Four additional lots, three of which have residential dwellings, can be purchased along with the main house, an opportunity broker-babble calls "the perfect forever home for a growing family."
