Living at 'Downton Abbey' expensive, still worth it

The Dowager Countess' quips may be priceless, but living at "Downton Abbey" has a high price tag. 

Money-saving website (oh, the irony) has calculated that a year of living at the estate would cost $8,365,292.

That's a lot of silver polish for Mr. Carson.

The website breaks down a "budget." Maintenance is about $2.9 million, oil costs almost $1 million. Even a yearly surprise of logs (must keep those fireplaces going) would run you almost $46,000. 

See the graphic breakdown below. 

Season 4 of "Downton Abbey" is airing now in the U.K. It premieres across the pond (aka: here) on Jan. 4.
