For those of you (like me) who are Downton Abbey fanatics but can't get to England to live out your fantasy, there are some options in the LA basin to live the Downton Abbey life.
Check out this article for some places to go. There are some great ideas here.
One I can vouch for personally is the Huntington Library. This is one of the rooms in the main residence (now the European Art Gallery as well).
