Oh, it's beautiful. Those stones have so much character and strength!
What is the building's new use?

Very nice former court house. Right on the beach too.
You do live in a lovely area. MB

Unlike any court house I've ever seen before.

on dirait un petit manoir, cela fait penser aux maisons sur la cote normande (dieppe and co).

This looks like a place where teens like to congregate. Is that graffiti on the white wall?

Beautiful stonework!

Fantastic building! I wonder what it is used for now. Wouldn't it be great to stay in one of the rooms there!

What's it now? Looks like a mansion, must have a privileged view of the beach!
God bless you!

It looks more like a palace or a villa than a court house!

If and when one ever must go to court, this would be the kind of place to wish for.

It's a beautiful building - more mansion than court for me. I wonder what's there now!

I've never seen a court house that looks like that! Seems more like a castle, what with the fireplaces...a beautiful building.

What is it used for now, I wonder?

So close to the beach. You do such wonderful building shots, the stuff of dreams.

A court house on the beach? Wonderful building. If Americans built like this, their houses wouldn't fall like a house of cards in every hurricane.
