An exceptional period house located right at the heart of this much sought after village.


Holly Cottage enjoys a wonderful location right at the heart of this highly sought after Surrey village with views across to Church. Brockham village is well known for its delightful village green and offers an excellent range of village facilities for day to-day needs including a general store and post office, chemist, butchers, two pubs on the green, village church and a primary school.
For a more comprehensive range of shopping facilities the thriving market town centres of Dorking and Reigate are only 2.8 and 5 miles away respectively. Each offer a good selection of mainstream and individual shops, cafes and restaurants including the likes of Laura Ashley, Cafe Rouge, Bills, Cote, Marks & Spencer and Waitrose to name but a few.
For the commuter Dorking mainline station offers regular train services to London Victoria and London Waterloo while Redhill station provides services to London Bridge and Victoria. Junctions 9 and 8 of the M25 are within 7.5 and 5.8 miles respectively and for the international traveller Gatwick is 10 miles to the south.
Educationally wise there are a number of outstanding state and independent schools within the vicinity including Walton on the Hill Primary, Aberdour Preparatory School, Epsom College, Reigate Grammar, Boxhill, Downsend and St John's in Leatherhead.
Sporting and recreational facilities in the area include golf at Dorking Golf Club, Betchworth Golf Club and The RAC Country Club. Tennis at the Dorking Tennis & Squash Club. Racing at Sandown and Epsom (home of the Derby). Polo at Epsom Polo Club and wine tasting at Denbies Vineyard, which is England's largest commercial vineyard. The countryside that surrounds Dorking is considered by many to be the finest in the south east and offers exceptional access to miles of open and protected countryside, including the North Downs and Box Hill, with some excellent walking, cycling and hacking trails.


Holly Cottage is an exceptionally pretty Grade II listed village house of tremendous style and character. Originally dating back to the 16th Century it has been extended and enlarged over the years so that it now provides both spacious and flexible modern family accommodation. As you would expect with a house of this age it boasts many fine period features including exposed oak beams, original doors and fireplaces.
Downstairs the accommodation briefly comprises reception hall, drawing room, dining room, study, kitchen/breakfast room, rear hallway, utility room, cloakroom and integral store that could be converted to a number of other uses. Upstairs there is a master bedroom with en suite walk in wardrobe and bathroom, 4 further bedrooms and family bathroom.
N.B. Bedroom two is of such generous proportions that, subject to gaining the relevant permissions, it could easily accommodate en suite facilities.

Outside a sweeping gravel driveway leads in from Wheelers lane and terminates to the front of the main house and garage providing ample parking for several cars. From there a set of stone steps draws visitors across the front lawn and up to the front door. Mature gardens and grounds, which have been meticulously maintained over many years, surround the house to front and back and provide a high degree of seclusion thanks to numerous well established trees and shrubs, established flower beds and colourful borders. To the rear of the property, and accessed from the utility room and rear hall, is a large terrace that overlooks the rear garden and lawns beyond. Tucked away in the corner of the garden is found a further patio area which looks back to the rear and side elevations of the property and is the perfect spot from which to enjoy an evening drink in the summer months.
