The Forge Castle - Thon-Samson
An 18th century residence which evolved successively into a classical manor house and then into a residence inspired by Flanders, the neo-Romanesque and the exuberant Mosan villas.
On the approach to the hamlet of Goyet, this residence from the third quarter of the 18th century is inseparable from the forge opposite it. The Raymond family, the forge masters who owned the property at the time of its construction, were active on several tributaries of the Meuse, notably in Mozet and Marche-les-Dames.
The classic manor house was altered in the 20th century by the addition of elements borrowed from Flanders architecture and a tower of medieval inspiration. These transformations, carried out in keeping with current tastes, have the merit of bringing this residence closer to the exuberant Mosan villas.
