Watchtower House, French Heritage monument to Pontgibaud

The only RCMP a street front retained its old openings, above the ground floor. The window of the first floor has retained its crossroads, outstanding support and moulded frame with a net by the cavets. The upper corners are rounded and the outer trim describes a small hint of brace in the center of the header. Over each of its corners is carved a triangle which protrudes a button. The angle formed by the two façades presents a polygonal tailpiece supporting a polygonal watchtower. Two of its cut sides are pierced, each of two small chamfered overlaid. This Bartizan ends by a shot cornice of a Carter and is covered by a roof in pepper
