Sunnycroft is a comfortable home telling the story of a brewer, a widow and three generations of the Lander family. Tucked away on the edge of Wellington is this rare suburban villa and mini-estate. As you walk up the large avenue of Wellingtonia trees the red-brick villa is unexpectedly revealed offering a chance to immerse yourself in a past era. The time capsule, which is furnished with original wallpapers, Maw’s tiles and gold medal winning fireplaces, transports you back to the pre-First World War ‘country house’ lifestyle. Packed full with everyday items belonging to the families who lived here, you are sure to feel the familiarity and comfort of this home despite all the features of a grander house, such as the Billiard Room, Drawing Room and impressive Staircase Hall. The 5 acres of garden is complete with glass houses, conservatory, kennels, pigsties and stables and is perfect for a wander or a game of croquet.
Assistance dogs are welcome. The house is wheelchair accessible. There is separate mobility parking - 25 yards from the entrance - with a drop-off point right outside. Adapted toilet is close to the house. There are sensory experiences for the visually impaired. The Grounds are partly accessible with some uneven, narrow and loose gravel paths. Accessible routes around grounds.
