About this property

  • 16 Willis Road is a well-proportioned (approximately 2,050 sq ft) three storey, semi-detached Victorian house constructed around 1903 of white Cambridge bricks and sash windows beneath a slate roof.

    The property is approached along a pretty tiled pathway behind a brick wall and mature planting leading to a white panelled front door. The wide hallway with strip wood floors communicates with all the rooms on the ground floor. To the left the living room with tall ceilings has a wide bay with sash windows with window seat and attractive fireplace. Beyond there is another well-proportioned, light sitting room with built-in cupboards, two sash windows with views to the side and gas real flame effect cast iron stove. This room leads through to a utility/boot room and plant room, with door to the side passage.

    The kitchen is very much the “heart of the house” with views of the rear garden from a large bay with French doors at one end and a woodburner with granite hearth to the other. The well-appointed kitchen has underfloor heating and a range of wood-fronted cabinetry, granite worksurfaces and glass upstands and fitted with integrated fridge/freezer and dishwasher, Neff double oven and both two and four ring electric hob with extractor above. A cloaks/wet room completes the ground floor accommodation.

    There are four bedrooms on the first floor and an attractive bathroom with white sanitary ware. On the top floor there are three further bedrooms, one the full width of the house. French doors lead from the kitchen to an enclosed sunny garden with a water feature, astroturf, timber storage shed and gated access to the rear and double garage.

This is a surprising house with exceptional proportions throughout. I was particularly fond of the enclosed west facing garden.
