The House

The house I live in lies in the heart of the mediaeval center of Deventer, the Bergkwartier. It's origin goes back to 1390.

In these days it was a city-farm and the owner/inhabitant was a widow called Mette from Heyniken Ellensoen. That is all I know about her unfortunately...
The house is divided in a front house and a rear house (or annex, "achterhuis", a word you might know from the Diary of Anne Frank), like many old Dutch trading houses.
I live upstairs, your apartment is at street level in the "achterhuis". You have your full privacy.
