Old Jersey Houses
The property is described as a rare example of semi-detached cottages, combined into one dwelling, but it has clearly been significantly altered since the entry was written in 1977.
- "It used to be said that the block was built as workmen's cottages, but this seems unlikely, and it is suggesed that the owner intended it for his two daughters, or perhaps sisters. It was originally a pair of cottages, with two staircases, each cottage having four very small rooms on each floor.
- "A granite coach house used to hold a loose box and two stalls, as well as room for a carriage, with a hay loft above.
- "It must have been Jurat Gallichan, one-time owner, who planted the lovely row of camellias to the south of the house, and the magnolia on the roadside."
Notes and references
- ↑ The name was changed to l'Espine in 1924 when Jurat William Collas bought it and called it after his family's Brittany home before they emigrated to Jersey in 1495
