William Willicombe & Decimus Burton – prominent Victorian Architects who helped shape Tunbridge Wells

Always a pleasure when Bracketts LLP return to Willicombe Park in #tunbridgewells to carry out #survey work

This property and its site are steeped in history having been originally designed and developed by William Willicombe – a prominent 19th century architect who rose up through the ranks under Decimus Burton (who himself collaborated and worked with John Nash – designer and developer of the Royal Pavilion, Marble Arch and Buckingham Palace).

William Willicombe started his career in the early 1800s working for the building contractor, John Brahmah. John Brahmah was instructed by John Ward and his architect Decimus Burton to build the 24 ornamental villas in Calverley Park in the 1830s. William obviously impressed Decimus Burton as he worked his way up from being one of Bramah’s workman to becoming a builder/architect in his own right. He initially assisted Decimus Burton before designing and building many of the properties himself in Calverley Park Gardens, Mount Ephraim Road and Lansdowne Road.

Our #kent based #surveyors are lucky to have such interesting properties on our door step!

From the minute I met Rebecca at the property she made the experience personal. I had some issues along the way and Rebecca was there to support me the entire way. I can’t thank Rebecca enough and would highly recommend her to anyone wishing to let their property.

Have been renting through Bracketts for a while. Process was very smooth and the communications during tenancy have been excellent. Quick to respond and have chased when needed

The survey provided was efficient, helpful and friendly. The report was received promptly and all queries answered quickly and simply, including plenty of photos of the flat roof. It was good to find a surveyor who could survey a flat roof at a very competitive price.

I was recommended Bracketts by a client and am very pleased to have been referred. The service was quick and efficient and the survey results were very clear. I was also really pleased on asking questions, that the responses were clear and in layman's terms, which is exactly what I needed. Would absolutely recommend.

Bracketts have been great with the house purchase. Through Nick and Lucy initially with viewings and then getting into the property having had our offer accepted to Janice who has helped push all the elements along to point of completion everyone has been really friendly, helpful and understanding. Thanks and Merry Christmas.
