Appraisal

Spring Valley House once functioned as the dower house to Summerhill House. The architectural form of the house is enlivened by the elaborate doorcase. The survival of many original features and materials enhance the architectural form of the building. The house forms an interesting group with the related outbuildings and entrance gates to the site and also forms part of a larger group with Summerhill House
