De Zoutkeet, But This Is NO Shed…

Spending the 2017 Easter break in Zierikzee, Zeeland, I found some amazing buildings to photograph.

This one has etched window decoration, and a plaque nearby on the wall that says:

De Zoutkeet”
“Oorspronkelijk herberg en logement, later verbouwd tot patricierswoning. Het pand dateert uit de 16e/17e eeuw. De Hardstenen gevel is in Lodewijk XVI stijl (laat 18e eeuw)”

Translated into English; Zoutkeet (literally = salt shed), “origionally an inn and hotel, later turned into a Patrician house (the home of someone from a ruling class and/or the aristocracy). The building  dates from the 16th / 17th century. The front façade is made from hard stone /granite and is in the Louis XVI style (late 18th century).
