Meet All Saints Cottage, with its enviable location and luxurious interior. Homes & Living found out more.
The owners of All Saints Cottage will be sad to leave their Arts and Crafts family home, which enjoys an enviable position in Hollingbourne, at the foot of the North Downs.
The four-bedroom cottage is just across the road from pretty All Saints Church from which it takes its name.
Owner Lavan Sasikethan says: “Hollingbourne is a lovely little village with a really cosy feel. It’s the elegant charm of the property and the convenience within that I’ll miss most.
“From the outside it’s incredibly attractive and internally it really does have the wow factor; every time I come home I can’t help but be struck by how beautiful it is. I know it’s a bit of a cliché, but in all honesty if I could I’d pick it up and take it with me I really wouldn’t hesitate.”
Potential buyers will find four generous bedrooms served by an en suite and family bathroom. Bedrooms have good views over the North Downs.
There are three reception rooms and a modern kitchen and adjoining breakfast room that is overlooked by a first floor mezzanine study.
There are well tended gardens to both front and back, together with side gardens, summerhouse, sheds and a double garage building. There is a large and sunny patio.
Nearby are village pubs, shops, primary school and mainline station. Rail journey times to London take a little over an hour.
For information ring the agent on 01732 222272 We bought All Saints Cottage around two years ago, and we fell in love with it the very first time we came to view it.
It’s not only gorgeous looking but it’s also very well built and has the most stunning wrap-around garden.
A few years before we bought the house it had been completely renovated by a previous owner, and I have to say that the changes they made transformed it into a really outstanding family home.
Externally it retains all of its character and charm, but internally it has a wonderfully contemporary look and feel, although the lovely period features have been preserved.
There are three separate reception rooms including an extremely generous formal living room, so there’s a great feeling of space throughout, and the kitchen has been given an open-plan layout, which is great for entertaining; in short it’s a spacious and really comfortable family home.
It began life as two cottages which at some point were combined and then extended.
Most of the main living areas have french doors that open on to different parts of the garden, so there’s a great connection between inside and out, and the garden as a whole is peaceful and very secluded.
