Eustache Sarde’s House
Predominantly a timber constructed house, it is no doubt one of the real remaining example of its kind in Seychelles. Dating from the early 20th Century, it was constructed with almost geometrical precision and refinement. The house once stood on large masonry pillars, but now rests on a habitable concrete basement. It has façade verandah, with ornamental wooden balusters mansards on its roof providing adequate and habitable attic space. The design has been conceived in such way as to allow natural ventilation.
