This is how much it would cost if you wanted to live next door to the Bridgerton houses
Don’t mind me rifling through the Duke’s bins and peering over his fence x
If you’ve watched Bridgerton, there’s no doubt you’ve fallen for the pomp, costumes and gorgeous locations and thought life in the 1800s could have been pretty fun. Well it turns out the Bridgerton series featured real life houses which you can actually live right by, so don’t mind me as I rub together the coins in my back pocket and hunt down the back of the sofa to see if I have enough to live out the dream.
New research by regulated property buyers, Good Move, reveals how much it would cost for you to live out your Bridgerton fantasy in a home similar to our favourite characters, or in the right area at least. It’s time to pack up your stuff and move in to a humble abode on the same street as the Duke.
The Bridgerton house – £605,000
The residence of Lady Violet Bridgerton, her four sons (Anthony, Benedict, Colin, and Gregory), and daughters (Daphne, Eloise, Francesca, and Hyacinth), was filmed at two different locations and houses.
The exterior of the home is Ranger’s House, an art museum in Greenwich, South East London. The average property in this area will set you back £605,069. But if you don’t have quite that amount of cash, RAF Halton located in Aylesbury Buckinghamshire was used for the interior shots and the average property price in that area is £481,847.
The Featherington residence – £515,000
If you fancy yourself as being besties with Penelope, you might want to move in by the Featherington house. Exterior shots here were filmed at No. 1 Royal Crescent, a museum in Bath, with the average property price here being £515,275.
But if you really fancy splashing the cash, the interior house which was used is much more spenny. Shots were filmed at Hatfield House in Hertfordshire and properties around here cost on average £706,717. No wonder Lord Featherington thought betting his house was a big deal.
The Duke of Hastings’ residence – £306,000
Three different filming locations were used for the Duke of Hasting’s house, so if you’re looking for where you might find such a suitor you should probably get looking now. Wilton House in Salisbury was used as the location of both the exterior and some of the interiors of the home. The average property in this area stands at a more affordable price of £306,261. Brb, moving in next door to the Duke!!
As for the other two filming locations for the Duke of Hasting’s residence, Badminton House in South Gloucestershire and Syon House in Brentford were used. Properties in these areas will set you back over half a million pounds, at £543,050 and £526,261 respectively.
Lady Danbury’s residence – £490,000
If you want to live right by the icon that is Lady Danbury you need to head to Bath. The exterior of this grand residence was filmed at the Holburne Museum of Art, where the average home in the area is valued at £490,267.
Badminton House and Wilton House also served as the interiors of Lady Danbury’s home – the same places used for the Duke’s.
The Queen’s residence – £638,000
I wouldn’t blame you if you wanted to move in right by the Queen, even if just to spy her incredible wigs each day. The exterior shots of her palace are of Hampton Court and living near this real palace would cost around £638,188.
Yet again, Wilton House was used for some interiors of the palace with the remaining scenes filmed from Lancaster House in London – where the average residence will cost you a whopping £1,648,603. As the most expensive area of all the Bridgerton houses, I think I’ll leave round there to the Queen.
The Duke and Duchess’ residence – £433,000
Out of all the areas of the Bridgerton houses, this is the one we all want. Fancy yourself as the perfect next-door neighbour to Daphne and Simon? Imagine what you could find having a garden that looks over theirs and rubbish bins right next to each others. Scandalous. Whilst Clyvedon Castle doesn’t actually exist in real life, Castle Howard in York was the filming spot for the exteriors of the Duke and Duchess’ residence. The average property value is £433,056 – somewhat affordable for living near such a magnificent stately home.
Both Wilton House and Badminton House make further appearances as some of the interiors of the fictional Clyvedon Castle. The rest of the interiors can be found at North Mymms Park in Hatfield, with the average property price being £706,717.
