Full Description

A late 19th century OS map only shows the rectangular western part of the building, but an OS map at the end of the 19th century shows that the building had been extended to the east to create the current square outline. (1, 2) Sunnybank House is a Grade II building built in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. It is of two storeys constructed from coursed stone with a tiled roof and end brick chimneys. (3) Sunnybank House is a two-storey stone house with tiled roof standing end-on to the road. It was at one time an ancillary building to Sunnybank Lodge which adjoins it on the east side. It was probably built in the late 18th century, and redesigned in the second half of the 19th century. Further alterations were made when the house was linked to the cellars of the Lodge, some time before 1914. This link was later broken and the connecting door walled up. (4)
