Street view with central hall house. This type of house is a local variation (of the Qalamun Mountains) of a house form known since mid of the 19th century, mostly from Lebanon. It has a shaded entrance with an arcade of three arches on round columns on the ground floor, above it on the upper floor a repetition as open seating area. Stone façade is made of cleanly carved limestone and slender arched windows. On the upper floor, a balcony extends over the entire facade. These houses might have been built in the first quarter of the twentieth century.
