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.
