House , For sale
The "Maison du Doyen Morel" is part of the historical and cultural heritage of the charming village of Corgémont and its surroundings. Built in the first half of the 18th century, it was originally the home of Charles-Ferdinand Morel, a theologian and founder of institutions of cantonal importance that still exist today (the Courtelary Orphanage and the Poor Law Fund). He was also one of the main instigators of the industrialization of the Vallon de St-Imier.
Although it has lost some of its splendour over the years, the house still bears witness to its grandiose historical past.
The building is topped by an imposing sloping roof with half-hollows and finials. It has architectural features that demonstrate the opulence of its first owner, including: a double-leaf south entrance door with a neo-classical cut stone, topped by a cartouche with a coat of arms, a facade with a regular division, corner quoins, etc.
The interior of the house, although bearing witness to its past grandeur through its mouldings, its double quartered stairway, its wood panelling and its inlaid parquet flooring, is "in its original state" and would deserve some work in order to restore it to its former glory.
A charming and picturesque building combining a pleasure house and a garage enlivens the south garden.
