Sunnybank garden tour
July 23, 2009 by upnorthgal
Sunnybank, a private residence, was built in 1894. The home has been fully restored both inside and out. The English style Victorian garden is absolutely stunning. The home is located on historic Sixth Street in downtown Traverse City. Please join me on this photo tour of the lovely gardens.
A stunning Victorian estate.
The “open” sign indicates the garden is open to guests and visitors.
The high fence walls make the garden it’s own micro-climate.
Plants seem to thrive at Sunnybank!
This is the view from the door into the garden from the alley. If you look closely, the homeowner is tending the garden.
The building is the owner’s private garden shed.
This image was taken from the stairs that lead into the house.
On the west side of the house, there are many shade gardens.
Here is just one of many beautiful doors within the garden. The hardware is incredible.
The front yard is also beautifully landscaped.
The brick path leads to a wonderful wraparound porch. I love the urns that flank the porch.
