The allure of the majestic Saltburn house, immortalized in Emerald Fennell’s cinematic masterpiece "Saltburn," has captivated the imagination of viewers around the world, including me. I admit that I was a little late in the game by just recently watching the film, but now that I have, I am absolutely fascinated by the characters, the twisted story, and the iconic Saltburn estate where everything that could go wrong, did.

As the deviant scheme for the lead character to take over the historic manor started to unravel, I was completely enchanted watching every scene that involved shots of this glorious estate. In essence, I feel that it was a character on its own, embodying opulence and a life of decedent aristocratic luxury that we just don't see anymore.

With 127 rooms, gorgeous perfectly groomed grounds, and a rich interior design, I can see how the "villain", Oliver Quick, went through great lengths to call it his own. It's truly an incredible movie, worthy of rewatching over and over again so if you haven't seen it, I suggest that you make the time.

In the film, they dubbed this house the Saltburn estate, but in real-life, this mega-mansion is known as the Drayton House. In fact, it's located in Northamptonshire, England, and roughly about a three-hour drive from Manchester.

One of the best-kept secrets of the English country house world.

The house was constructed in 1300, but with roots that trace back to 1066, including notable refurbishments in the 1700s that introduced an ornate Baroque façade. It's interiors, a blend of history and contemporary artistry, truly showcase this home as architectural magnificence built for the less than 1% elite of the world. I simply can't get enough of it, can you?
