Heatherlea Villa 1891

By paulknight  
Sorry everyone, just another villa, but this one was built in 1891, the oldest I have photographed so far and it is beautifully cared for. The name "Heatherlea" pre-existed the villa and referred to the block of land. Does the word come from Northern England or Scotland and would it imply a nostalgic reference to land covered with heather? What about "Heatherbrae" a name of a nearby villa? (The original entrance is around the right end of the house.)
