About this property

  • Believed to date from the late 1700's with later additions, Sunnybank is a lovely and light house, constructed predominantly of brick under a slate roof. The current owner has taken great care to renovate and extend the house to a high standard, retaining many attractive period features, whilst seamlessly combining the more recent additions to the house, which benefit from the south-facing aspect, overlooking the pretty garden and countryside views.
    A wide, bright entrance hall, with oak flooring, provides access to the light filled drawing room. This spacious room benefits from a vaulted ceiling, French doors onto the terrace and a wood-burning stove sitting on a slate hearth. The hall also extends into a light-filled garden room, with aluminium bi-fold doors that when open seamlessly join the outside and inside into one beautiful entertaining area with the stunning garden beyond.
    A cosy sitting room, with an original Victorian fireplace and oak floor leads, via a front hall with original Victorian terracotta floor tiles, into a dining room with quarry tiled floor and a large stone inglenook.
    The triple-aspect kitchen has deep window sills and overlooks the garden. The bespoke handmade cabinetry is by Trevor Toms of Shaftesbury and has a combination of black granite and Iroko wood work surfaces. In addition to a Belfast sink, integrated appliances include a dishwasher, fridge and a Lacanche Classic Macon range cooker. The kitchen and adjoining garden room benefit from underfloor heating. A utility room, with fitted cupboards, sink and plumbing for washing machine and tumble dryer, completes the ground floor.
    Upstairs are three double bedrooms and one single bedroom, all with fitted wardrobes. There is a well-appointed family bathroom, with bespoke fitted storage and a similarly well-appointed family shower room, both with underfloor heating.

I love the style of this cottage and the Chalke Valley is the most wonderful place to live.
