I think when it comes to considerations of curb appeal, Downton Abbey appears high on many lists of properties that make the average viewer turn some shade of green (with envy) over a lifestyle experienced by the very few.
My favorite character, the Countess of Grantham played by Maggie Smith, often delivers the best lines in the series with the most remarkable tone of understatement.

"Vulgarity is no substitute for wit."

"No family is ever what it seems from the outside."

"Hard work and diligence weigh more than beauty in the real world."

"If only that were true."
