Farm, French Heritage monument to Berstett

This farmhouse located in the centre of the village is remarkable for its large size. The buildings arranged in a quadrilateral determine a court closed, with access from the street is provided by a carriage door lintel and an arched pedestrian gate. The main building presents a lateral Wall Street. It is made of bricks covered with plaster, based on a few foundations of sandstone Ashlar. The treatment of elevation on street was treated and contrasts with other homes: passage marked by a slight slip and decorated door leaves, headband and moulded window frames, fake continuous boss table, pine nuts discovered. The wing angle on the rue des Artisans offers secondary housing, ground floor coated sandstone rubble with chain stone in the corner, and floor in timber decorative character: figures backed k, scows lozenges and small cross-de-Saint-André includes, relieves formed Panel full and decorated. The stables extend this part. The barn and stables complete the home. This farm which holds an important place in the village, dates from the 19th century. Two dates, 1842 and 1862, are incised at the entrance to the Court. It seems that the large main wing which houses the lateral logis on street is more recent that has building in square.
