Here, Seth Insua has envisaged Pemberley, the grand country estate owned by Fitzwilliam Darcy of Pride & Prejudice, located near the fictitious town of Lambton. Believed by some to be based on Lyme Park, north of Disley in Cheshire, this illustration blends several architectural styles to create an imposing, moneyed facade. Though marriage for Austen's heroines is more about survival than romance, fiercely independent Elizabeth Bennett can't help but be seduced when she first sets eyes on Pemberley.
"It was a large, handsome, stone building, standing well on rising ground, and backed by a ridge of high woody hills;—and in front, a stream of some natural importance was swelled into greater, but without any artificial appearance. Its banks were neither formal, nor falsely adorned. Elizabeth was delighted. She had never seen a place where nature had done more, or where natural beauty had been so little counteracted by an awkward taste. They were all of them warm in their admiration; and at that moment she felt that to be mistress of Pemberley might be something!"
