Maison « Lebrun »


A fine example from the middle of the 16th century, this house is built over two and a half levels on a low limestone base. In addition to the use of the stone, the building is also distinguished by the presence in its ogee transom windows of a dripstone whose consoles are sculpted in the form of human heads. Some of these elements are restorations, some of which can also be seen on the façade to the right of the door. The windows also show signs of alterations, causing them to disappear by lowering the sills. Two square light wells precede a cornice with moulded corbels and a hipped slate roof. The rear wall is very similar to the main façade, except for an annexe built at right angles to it, with a bow window on the ground floor. An annexe constructed from limestone rubble to the left of the main part of the house could date back to the 18th century. Although recent, the openings include a porte-cochère and a cement-frame bay window, reflecting the ones in the neighbouring house. The rear wall of the annexe has been significantly modified over time.

Building listed on 13th March 1972
