Of course you love her icy zingers and staunch adherence to social protocol, but if you really can't get enough of Downton Abbey's Dowager Countess (and you have $6.1 million) you could own her fictional British home. Squeeee. Let's take a look.

Named the Byfleet Manor in real life, the 17th century home has a lot going for it besides its TV fame. Namely eight bedrooms, 6000 square feet and a 18-acre lot in Surrey, England. Owner Julie Hutton bought the mansion for a paltry one million pounds 10 years ago and went to work restoring the home to its former glory.

If you live under a rock and don't watch Downton, you also might recognize the house from its cameos in other period dramas like Poirot (my parent's favorite) and Cranford. But those were just bit parts compared to its breakout, star-making role in Downton (nice work if you can get it).

Feast your eyes.
