Old presbytery of Soulme
In the enclosure formed by the church and the cemetery, this well-to-do residence stands out in the village thanks to its dominant position, its classical style and the perfect symmetry of its façade.
In the enclosure formed by the church and the cemetery, the former presbytery stands out from the other dwellings and imposes itself in the village by its dominant position, at the top of the main street, and by the classical style and perfect symmetry of its façade.
This wealthy residence, built of irregular limestone rubble, is one of the oldest in the village.
Although it was remodelled in the second half of the 18th century, its construction probably dates back to the first half of the 17th century.
The rear façade overlooks the church and the interior of the cemetery, which was directly connected to the priest’s garden by a screen door.
