In Shonda Rhimes’ hit Netflix series, grand ballrooms, stately mansions, and picturesque gardens set the scene for romance and intrigue, making it easy for viewers to get lost in the visual delight that is Bridgerton.

The houses featured in the series capture the grandeur and elegance of the Regency Era, with their distinctive architecture and lavish interiors playing a crucial role in setting the tone for the series.

With their grand facades, sweeping driveways and gardens, opulent interiors, ornate detailing, and elaborate furnishings, the Regency Era-inspired residences are swoon-worthy — but well out of reach.

While Bridgerton takes many creative liberties, when it comes to the houses, palaces, and country manors that serve as background for its juicy storytelling it doesn’t stray too much from reality. Most of the palatial homes you see on screen are real-life properties with ties to British aristocrats and former royalty.

But since all of them are across the pond in the UK, we wanted to see what Bridgerton-worthy abodes we might find closer to home. So we’ve curated a list of stunning properties for sale across the U.S. that look like they’ve been plucked straight from the Bridgerton set.

From a couple of charming English cottages in North Carolina to an opulent European-inspired Los Angeles estate owned by one of the world’s most famous musicians to a magnificent $24.5M mansion just outside Boston, these homes offer a perfect blend of period architecture and modern luxury.

#1 Rod Stewart’s ritzy European-inspired manor in Los Angeles

Possibly the most Bridgerton-worthy house we’ve ever laid our eyes on — in fact, I’m pretty sure Lady Featherington would take it off the market in a second if she caught a glimpse of it — the Maggie May singer’s Los Angeles abode is one for the history books.

Most recently listed for a whopping $74 million, the English country-style estate spans 28,000 square feet, with 8 bedrooms and 12 bathrooms. It was designed by Richard Landry, the same “Megamansion King” who built stately homes for some of the biggest names in sports and entertainment, including Wayne Gretzky, Tom Brady, Mark Wahlberg, and Sylvester Stallone (whose Landry-designed home is now owned by singer Adele).

Adding to its Old World appeal, Rod Stewart’s lavishly decorated mansion has royalty-worthy interiors like a grand foyer, Great Room, regal formal library, private speakeasy, and some more modern-day additions like a 60’ by 120’ fully lit soccer field.

The Great Room, with its intricately detailed bar and seamless connection to the outdoor terrace, is tailor-made for entertaining. The formal library, wrapped in wooden bookshelves and a marble fireplace, offers a cozy retreat — but is just as regal as the rest of the celebrity house.

For more formal affairs, the dining room offers an elegant setting, while the private speakeasy and screening room add a touch of Hollywood glamour.

Minutes from Boston, in the coveted Country Club section of Brookline, Massachusetts, a remarkable architectural gem has recently resurfaced on the market with a hefty price tag.

The sprawling Grand Georgian Revival Estate, priced at a whopping $24.5 million, is currently the second most expensive home for sale in the popular Boston suburb and boasts a timeless architecture that stands as a testament to exquisite craftsmanship and a historic legacy that stretches back to its designer, William Truman Aldrich.

And its stately exterior will make a lot more sense when you learn that Aldrich (who was also the brother-in-law of John D. Rockefeller) trained at both the MIT School of Architecture and Planning and at the École Des Beaux Arts in Paris.

Originally built with double-brick construction in 1929, the stately mansion that anchors the estate has over 16,000 square feet of living space — with a total of 23 rooms, 10 of which are bedrooms. And each and every single one looks like it belongs on a Bridgerton set.

As you step into the grand foyer, you’re greeted by quarter-sawn oak parquetry floors with a starburst motif. The library, adorned with hand-carved oak paneling and a French-inspired fireplace, exudes timeless elegance. Sunlight bathes the living room, where French boiserie-style paneling and intricate crown molding steal the show.

The elegant mansion is listed with George and Manny Sarkis of Douglas Elliman.

Behind the gates of the exclusive Governors Club in the upscale Highland Pond neighborhood in Chapel Hill, North Carolina lies a masterpiece of grandeur and elegance, currently on the market for $7 million with Martin Verdi of Compass holding the listing.

The estate features a private driveway leading to a roundabout entrance, showcasing an elegant fossilized limestone facade. Its exterior is adorned with imported stone limestone and hardwood floors, setting a regal tone. The grand entrance is flanked by Corinthian columns, creating a stately presence reminiscent of Bridgerton’s opulent settings.

The property spans three levels and boasts an impressive 11,663 square feet of elegantly appointed living spaces. To highlight just a few of the interiors’ many standout features, the main level has an ample foyer, a formal dining room adorned with two Baccarat crystal chandeliers, and silk-upholstered walls.

The Sapele wood-walled library, complete with maple-ebony inlay columns and a Louis XVI French marble fireplace, echoes the grandeur of Morgan’s Library in NYC.

Other Bridgerton-worthy features include a vast living/music room, a sunroom with a marble fireplace, manicured gardens, a large stone terrace, and a custom-made gazebo with a wood-burning fireplace.

#4 Another North Carolina beauty that’ll transport you to the English countryside

While this five-bedroom, seven-bath estate in Pittsboro, North Carolina is one of the most affordable properties on our list, don’t let that fool you into thinking it’s any less impressive than the previous ones.

Listed for $3,500,000 with David Worters over at Compass, the 5,625-square-foot custom-built estate sits on ten acres of unspoiled and exceptionally private land.

And it makes the most of its secluded, lush location with its manicured English gardens, sitting areas, and swimming pool surrounded by tall pines, oaks, Japanese maples, and perennials in bloom.

Craftmanship and timeless detail work define the estate — both inside and out

The magazine-worthy estate was built with quality in mind, and its hallmarks are craftsmanship and timeless detail work.

Boasting elegant formal spaces, there’s plenty to love about the ultra-private residence, including its thermostatically controlled wine room and cellar, parlor, double-sided fireplace connecting the kitchen’s breakfast area to the living room, and large mudroom (with dog wash station).

But the main house is not the only structure on the grounds of the property — which spans over ten acres. There’s also a Carriage House with a three-car climate-controlled garage and a fully equipped apartment with a living room, kitchen, bedroom, and full bath.

#5 A historic Los Angeles gem designed by Beverly Hills Hotel architect Elmer Grey

Step back in time and experience the timeless elegance of the Baker House, a historical gem designed by Elmer Grey, the architect behind the Beverly Hills Hotel.

Contrasting Los Angeles’ typical sleek, glass mansions and contemporary new builds in the best way, 1201 S St Andrews Pl — dubbed the Baker House — is a circa 1923 historical gem that exudes elegance, character, and charm at every turn.

And for good reason: the house was designed by renowned architect Elmer Grey, best known for building the Beverly Hills Hotel, the Huntington Library, the Pasadena Playhouse, and Wattles Mansion.

After last trading hands in 2021, the stately English Revival-style residence is now back on the market with a $2,995,000 price tag that feels fairly modest when you account for the house’s Country Club Park location, generous proportions, historic significance, and modern amenities. Malyn Dahlin and Alice Cannington of The Agency hold the listing.

The Baker House, built circa 1923, showcases Grey’s distinctive design philosophy and retains plenty of period-specific elements. The property features detailed ceilings, leaded glass windows, ornate wrought iron accents, and the iconic living room fireplace.

Adding extra notes of drama and sophistication, bold reds and greens grace the walls, mixed with equally daring curtains and textiles that have a dazzling effect in highlighting the home’s historic details.

Most notably, the ornate ceilings steal the eye and give the rooms a note of grandeur.

Bonus: Across the border, the “Schitt’s Creek” mansion in Toronto could easily serve as the Queen’s palace

We didn’t want to include this one, as it’s not located in the US but rather across the border, in Canada. But since it’s so incredibly lavish it could easily play the role of the royal palace on Bridgerton, we just had to give it a quick shout-out.

The iconic Schitt’s Creek mansion that the fictional Rose family once called home in the hit TV series, a sophisticated and opulent abode with Versailles-worthy interiors meant to highlight the main characters’ incredible wealth and steep fall from grace, is known in real life as La Belle Mansion — and it’s one of Toronto’s most recognizable residences.

It’s also one of the city’s priciest and has been floated on the market at several price points over the years. It’s currently listed for 17,800,000 CAD (roughly $13 million US).

Inside, every detail exudes grandeur and elegance

The house has ultra-luxurious features you’d be hard-pressed to find anywhere else, like eye-catching frescoes reminiscent of the Sistine Chapel.

Spanning 24,000 sq ft. of ultra-luxurious living space, this opulent estate features 12 bedrooms, 16 bathrooms, and a myriad of lavish amenities ranging from a home theater to several pools. From the grand marble foyer to the palatial formal dining room, every detail exudes grandeur and elegance.
