Looks like its falling apart. Are they planning on fixing it?

It is surprising to see the continued deterioration of Spring Hill's garden wall. According to their Accepted FEIS [5-23-06], the developers (Spring Hill Farms, LLC) intended to preserve the wall in its entirety. Comparing this photo with your previous posts, the upper part of the center section is in urgent need of repair. Are the development plans on hold?

Just to the right of were the main house stood is another house that appears connected to the estate.

Perhaps a Supers House?

BTW - you can see the indoor tennis court still standing at Google Earth c. 2000.
