Monument and history of the place

  • Interest of the building : Cette ferme, construite au cours du 2e quart du 20e siècle, adopte le schéma parfait de la ferme à cour fermée. L'ensemble des constructions a bénéficié d'un effort architectural puisque le logis, entièrement construit en briques, propose un décor intéressant et que les annexes sont constituées de moellons équarris et briques.Située en dehors de la ferme afin de ne pas empiéter sur le domaine privé, une maison isolée était peut-être destinée à recevoir les travailleurs saisonniers employés par le propriétaire des lieux.
