The scaffolding comes off 14 Grande Rue
Another hôtel particulier has been restored from its former dreadful state. The new façade looks splendid and now looks well cared for. This property on the west side of the street and it extends right back to the next street, rue Henri Proust. The state of its neighbour, no.16, can be seen where they abut. No.16 is the next hôtel to be restored and is now surrounded by builder's hoardings at street level.
