This is a description of some newly-built houses which are up for sale. The entire sentence goes "Fachada principal y trasera de ladrillo visto rústico, y laterales y testeros en monocapa".

chimney (breasts) in single layer
Explanation:
Chimney-breast
n. 1. (Arch.) The horizontal projection of a chimney from the wall in which it is built; - commonly applied to its projection in the inside of a building only.
My Routledeg Technical gives "testeros" as "stopes" which is a mining term, I believe here they are referring to the chimney flue surrounds.
