Good morning Pirates! It may be grey and rainy where I'm writing you from Boston, but it's a lovely day in my book because BOTH OF THE HOUSES FROM THE HOLIDAY ARE FOR SALE.
First up, Iris's Rosehill Cottage in Surrey!
Well, the house that inspired Iris's Rosehill Cottage in the film is for sale, that is. Rosehill Cottage is not real. The exterior was built in a field, and the interior was a set somewhere. The crew was inspired by this house, which is honestly just as cute. It's called Honeysuckle Cottage, has 3 bedrooms, and the bathroom is bigger than the one in the movie.
The best part: the town is well connected, has multiple pubs and a primary school, and a direct train to London. Also, it really is in Surrey, and can be yours for £650,000!
He told me once.
Prefer California over England? I have great news for ya: Amanda's mansion is for sale too!
Located in San Marino, this Italian Period Revival home was built in 1928, and has a whopping 7 bedroom and 6 bathrooms! Just like the movie, there is a pool, long driveway with a fountain, and an upstairs balcony for you to throw your cheating partner's belongings out of.
Like Iris's cottage, the inside of the house you see in the film was a set, but the 1920s detailing and rustic-chic decorations in the real home are certainly something to be excited about! Though its been renovated a few times, the oversized fireplace, chandelier, iron wall sconces, and coved ceilings are all original to the house. There's a library, a formal dining room, private side garden, hand-painted tiling in the kitchen... it's perfect.
Also it's $12 million.
Not only was this house featured in The Holiday, but it has also won many awards for its design, and contributed to the style of architecture in Southern California.
Me, talking to this house.
So, who's up for a house swap this holiday season?
