35, rue de Notre Dame de Nazareth, 75003 Paris

Interior of our apartment.
Entering the apartment you see the windows overlooking the street, and the hand-hewn beams.  A part of Colette's collection of 19th C pottery is on the walls.

Looking from the interior of the exterior wall toward the dining area with the
built in desk and closet.  The appraiser and other knowledgeable people put the date of construction about 1715.  The beams were obviously cut by ax not a circular saw, and the plumbing was added much later.  This is evidenced by the fact that the bthtub and toilet sit about 6" above the floor to provide for the plumbing! At some point before plumbing was added to the interior of the apartment, the building was plumbed and fawcets added to each landing.
The kichen in very serviceable.  The Rosiere stove is really nifty.  Three gas eyes, one electric eye for slow cooking, an oven with built in rotisserie, which we never used, and the bottom drawer is a very efficient dishwasher.

Colette found someone to build a cupboard on which to put the refrigerator wo we do not have to get on our hands and knees to put things in/take out.
