Breathtaking Estates Hit the European Market

In a post-Downton Abbey world, these luxury, centuries-old stately homes have been growing in popularity. Architectural Digest took a tour of the sprawling grounds to compile the most desirable country retreats on the market. The European estates are rich in history, clothed in vintage furnishings, accessories and styling.

First up on the tour du real estate is Sturminster Newtown in England, boasting an eighteenth century home known as Thornhill Park, sitting on 145 acres including a deer park, gardens, woodlands and several lakes and an ornamental, barrel-vaulted interior, complete with three cottages, a guesthouse, stables and a farm manager’s house to Le Pecq, France, where an antique home sits on high-tray ceilings and herringbone floors. Check out the amazing images of the properties at Architectural Digest.

The desirable real estate continues, with properties in Dordogne, Yvelines, and Toulouse, France back again to Ripon, England and finally to Clonmel, Ireland.
