Could it be 'Four' indicating the number of rooms?

Thank you,

I don't suppose anyone could please tell me what this address says. I know the top bit says Ashford Hill, but what about the underneath bit? Thank you.

The last part looks like the mark for ditto so maybe something else Hill?

Is it written again down the page or on the next page similar?
