* Hastings from ''Literature/TheWarriorHeir'' fits this trope, being a wizard who owns a large manor house. In fact, most wizards in the series are gentlemen by wealth, though not by manners - they oppress the other magic users, among them the titular warriors, whom they force to fight duels to the death to settle wizard infighting without ''wizards'' getting killed.

* Giles could be said to borderline this on ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''. He's a total British gentleman when you don't make him mad, uses magic although it isn't innate with him, and does used borrowed magic in season 6 to try and stop Willow.
