Description
Sunnycroft

Late-Victorian gentleman's suburban villa

The house is typical of the many thousands that were built for prosperous business and professional people on the fringes of Victorian towns and cities. Sunnycroft is one of the very few -- perhaps the only one -- to have survived largely unaltered and with a remarkable range of its contents remaining. The grounds amount to a 'mini-estate', with pigsties, stables, kitchen garden, orchards, conservatory, flower garden and superb Wellingtonia avenue
