17 Hills Avenue

History of 17 Hills Avenue

Marie Burrows has always lived in this area and enjoyed many houses. After her father died she moved out of their house in Luard Road to a house in Cavendish Avenue. The first time they tried to buy 17 Hills Avenue they were unlucky.

However, visits to the house over several years kept her appetite whetted!
