Sunnybank is a handsome and imposing period property, approached over a gently sloping driveway from Newry Road leading up to a parking/turning area in front of a single detached garage. The driveway is hedged to either side and divides the garden into two areas. A dwarf wall, steps and path lead to the front entrance to this fine home, while paths lead to either side and around to the rear. The front garden is laid mainly to lawn with mature shrub beds and borders. To the side of the house there is a paved patio and to the rear there is a gravelled area, raised platform with oil tank and greenhouse and a second paved patio offering panoramic views over farmland to Garth Hill. On the other side of the driveway, two pedestrian gates lead into the streamside garden, with a footbridge over the stream, several mature trees and many shrubs and a vegetable area with fruit cage. Steps up to a sloping garden with a decked seating area and viewpoint offering even more fabulous views to Lower Eppynt.

Approached from the front door which is protected from the elements via a canopy porch, the entrance hallway leads in turn to the second reception room, utilised by the current owner's as a home study. Measuring 3.64 x 3.31m, this room has the benefit of floor to ceiling fitted bookshelves, recessed cupboards and shelving, and a wonderful fireplace with tiled insets and hearth, with timber mantle over. The chimney would need to be reinstated if this were to be used. A large window to the front of the property overlooks the gardens, and the views stretch for miles. A door from the study leads into the kitchen, which is located at the rear of the property. The kitchen boasts ample space for food preparation and cooking, measuring 4.64 x 2.44m, having views to the rear up to Garth Hill, and door into the large conservatory. Measuring 4.83 x 2.90m, this is an exceptional area to relax and take in the views, and has two separate doors to each side of the rear gardens. Another door from the kitchen leads into an impressive, multi-functional reception room. With maximum measurements of 6.93 x 6.21m, this is a gorgeous space for dining, and relaxing. The sitting and dining areas are divided by a centrally located woodburning stove, with archways to either side and the room enjoys further fine views to the front and side of the property. Accessed from the sitting area, there is a rear lobby with external door, large storage cupboard and downstairs WC with wash hand basin.

The rooms on the first floor in particular are breath-taking, with the elevation just enhancing the views that are already special on the ground floor. There are three double bedrooms and a generous single, three situated at the front of the property, and one to the rear. One of the bedrooms has the benefit of an en-suite shower room, and two bedrooms offer original ornate fireplaces. Another room off the landing has been utilised as a dressing room by the current owners, having large floor to ceiling fitted wardrobes, but could be utilised as a fifth, single bedroom, should the accommodation be required. The first floor accommodation is completed by a family bathroom, enjoying a suite of panelled bath, low flush WC and vanitory unit.

The location, beautifully landscaped grounds, views and quality of accommodation are all first class with this exceptional family home. In a secluded location on the south easterly fringes of Builth Wells, viewings are strongly recommended to appreciate all that is on offer.
