Sunnyside started life as a two bedroom cottage dating back to the 1700’s and when purchased by our client it was in a poor state of repair. It has been extensively extended and renovated over the years with a dedication to retaining character both internally and externally with leaded windows, exposed beams, flagstone floors and rough plaster all of which you would expect from a cottage. A detached double garage and extension was built in 1997 providing a spacious lounge, large utility/boot room and cloakroom on the ground floor and two further double bedrooms and two bathrooms on the first floor. The addition of a workshop/office was built onto the garage in later years in matching stone to the cottage and provides further opportunity to convert to a guest bedroom with ensuite. In 2016 a stunning tiled roof laid with special attention given to preserving the eyebrow arches over the windows.
