Hello there, from Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson:

"Will you wait here by the fire, sir? or shall I give you a light in the dining room?"
"Here, thank you," said the lawyer, and he drew near and leaned on the tall fender. This hall, in which he was now left alone, was a pet fancy of his friend the doctor's; and Utterson himself was won't to speak of it as the pleasantest room in London.


What does pet fancy mean?

Thanks!
