Chances are that you’re knee-deep in cheesy holiday films right about now… chief among which is the Nancy Meyers classic The Holiday. If you’re a superfan and want to get a little closer to the movie than just watching it on a screen, you might want to consider a move to Surrey. Honeysuckle Cottage, the quaint three-bedroom home that inspired Kate Winslet’s Rosehill Cottage, is on the market. The Hamptons International listing asks £650,000—or about $816,111.
Set designers created the film’s English home in the image of this two-story home right down to the rustic detailing and exposed wooden beams. Unfortunately, the house doesn’t come with Jude Law, but it does come with a slew of equally charming design features.
Situated in the village of Holmbury St. Mary (London is a quick train ride away), the cottage epitomizes cozy country living.
Downstairs, the custom kitchen features hand-painted cabinets in a trendy seafoam green—same as the film’s kitchen—and butcher-block counters. There’s even an oil-fired AGA for peak British charm.
The first level also features a large, backyard-facing family/dining room and a living room that includes a brick inglenook fireplace and a vintage-looking Jøtul log burner. We want to spend all day curled up in that cozy space. Probably watching The Holiday.
The three bedrooms are all upstairs, each with ample space and more of the rustic wood beams that accentuate the home’s character.
Cottage living not for you? According to People, Cameron Diaz’s L.A. mansion from the same film (or the home used for its exterior, anyway) went on the market in May. You have your pick of Holiday-related real estate.
