Its pretty veranda sets the tone for the rest of the house, which is surrounded by a lush garden on all sides.

Built in 1946, The Willows on Mount Anville Road offers something a little different than your average home. The four-bed property may look diminutive from the outside, but inside it feels bright and spacious.

As you enter the house, there are reception rooms on either side. Two are currently used as living spaces, each with their own fireplace, while there is also a dining room, perfect for entertaining.

The kitchen is bright thanks to the sunroom which sits to the rear of it. The natural light is also maximised by the cream gloss units, while a solid oak floor provides a nice contrast.

The sunroom, which is currently being used as a breakfast room, provides views out to the garden, and has French doors that lead out to it.

Upstairs there are four bedrooms. The main bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe and ensuite bathroom with a rainwater pumped shower. The second bedroom has a built-in wardrobe and desk, while the remaining two bedrooms have built-in under-eaves storages.

Outside, the garden is a real feature of the house. The front garden has been designed in an Italian style, with box and bay hedging framing lawn and gravel areas. The rear garden is south-east facing and is 100 feet long. It has been planted with a mix of flowering plants, shrubs and hedging to provide colour and interest all year round, while patio areas provide places to sit.
