Pemberley Estate

After a gradual ascend of around half a mile, looking at the top of a considerable eminence, the wood ceased, and the eye was instantly caught up by “Pemberley House” It was a large, handsome, stone building, standing well on rising ground and backed by a ridge of highly woody hills; and in the front, a stream of some natural importance was swelled into greater, but without an artificial appearance. It’s banks were neither formal, nor falsely adorned.

Elizabeth was delighted. She has 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 her admiration; and at that moment she felt that to be mistress of Pemberley might be something!
