    Sunnyside House is believed to be a late Victorian property and is very impressively proportioned. Extending to over 7000 sq ft in the main house including a self-contained staff/guest apartment, along with a separate lodge adjoining the entrance drive this property has extensive accommodation in grand style.

    There is an outdoor heated swimming pool with changing facilities within the lower ground floor of the house. Designed to be sheltered and private this will be a useful addition in the summer months.

    The accommodation is comfortable but ready for buyers to upgrade to their own needs and style and is arranged over four floors. There are excellent leisure areas including a snooker room and a superb party room above which could equally provide space for a home cinema.

    The principal section of the house includes an impressive reception hall beyond the entrance vestibule and a cloaks/shower room with a w.c. To the right of the hall is a dual aspect morning room and to the rear of this the wonderful drawing room with its side bay, fireplace and dual aspect.

    The dining room has a French door to the rear terrace, a fireplace and built-in cupboards. A day room adjoins the dining room and a butler's pantry with double doors opens off.

    The breakfast kitchen extends to the full depth of the house and a door leads off to the utility room. There are steps down from the kitchen to a rear hall and a study with double doors leading through to the snooker room which also has an outside door from the main drive area. A staircase leads up to the large party room.

    The lower ground floor includes a self-contained staff suite accessed either internally or via a pair of French doors from the side bay. The living dining kitchen has a bedroom and en suite shower room. The remaining area on this floor includes a wine cellar, a cloakroom with w.c., two changing rooms, a boiler room and store. An outside door opens to the swimming pool terrace.

    There are four principal bedrooms on the first floor off the galleried landing and these include a master suite with a large fitted dressing room and an en suite bathroom. Of the remaining three bedrooms two share an en suite bathroom and the second bedroom has the house bathroom with a separate w.c.

    The second floor has two further bedrooms, a play room, landing area and a large store room. There is plenty of space to create another bathroom subject to permissions.

    Adjoining the games and party room is a further two storey building which includes at ground floor level a gardener's workshop/store and a double garage with a staircase from the workshop area to a first floor split level store room over 30' in length.

    The lodge is a single storey building which includes a living room, a bedroom, kitchen and bathroom with a separate w.c. In need of some renovation, the building offer scope for staff or dependent accommodation.
