to left of entrance, a 2-storeyed, 3-window range with 12-pane
sashes, modillion eaves cornice and end wall stacks.
Greystones (No.114) forms a parallel rear range, probably a
somewhat later addition as a ballroom. 2-storeyed, 2-window

ground floor of full height. Service wing projecting to south
houses entrance, the fenestration largely renewed.
INTERIOR: Spring Cottage retains 1 panelled room splat
