    Ah! There is nothing like staying at home, for real comfort. Especially if your home is the Austen family’s Steventon House in Hampshire, a 6,900 square foot Georgian beauty on 51 acres, beautifully updated and complete with walled garden, swimming pool, tennis court, and gardens galore. Oh, and it’s where Austen wrote Pride and Prejudice and Northanger Abbey and Sense and Sensibility (on the property at least—the rectory in which she lived with her family is no more).

    The property is currently listed for about $10.5 million, and you can see why:

    More pictures can be found here. Someone please buy this and turn it into a writing retreat? Thanks.
