Austen is one of those old location houses, so steeped in character and history, that it’s simply irreplaceable.
It is one of our biggest outside London shoot location properties, situated in rural Surrey, featuring enormous rooms with exceptionally high ceilings. It is also one of our oldest location houses, still exhibiting some of the original bones that it has most likely had for centuries.
The wooden floorboards throughout the house are the main feature which establish this lived-in feel; they dominate the rooms which are so sparsely decorated and minimal, creating a real sense of desolate and wisdom all at once.
There are also modern influences which complement the house’s historic origins. The bathrooms and the kitchen, in particular, are filled contemporary furnishings, only adding to the property’s all-round uniqueness.
