    Wow! We were recently visiting friends in Chapel Hill and almost drove up to Sunnyside! I'll see if I can scan in some photos... Pinterest doesn't seem to allow me to post my email address to learn more?

    We bought the place after it went into foreclosure. Lots of yard maintenance, fixing plaster and painting to do. Heating and air mechanicals not functioning. Really a shame that previous owners let things go...trying to find out what the place looked like in the distant past. Try and friend me on facebook...maybe we could connect that way. Laurie Phipps. Look forward to hearing from you!

    so sad to hear it went into decay, yet thrilled to hear you are saving it! My diabetic/blind great-great Aunt Gladys was allowed to live there with help until she died, and the family sold it (1970s- early 80s -- I'll ck) I think a retired military officer and his wife bought it and then it was a b&b for awhile? I'll FB you and see what info I can gather and provide!
