April 21, 2020

What a great property! And a perfect name for this house! Sunny Banks was built in 1888. It is located on 50 acres in Louisa, Virginia. The home has heart pine floors and tall ceilings. The only thing I would change about the house is the kitchen. Feels a bit too modern for the house. Love the water and the old trees on the property. Four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and 3,278 square feet. $749,500
