"Maison de l'Orfèvre" (House of the Goldsmith) in the rue Champeux in the historic city centre of Troyes, Aube, built between 1578 and 1618. This neighbourhood and in particular the rue du Domino, now called the rue Paillot-de-Montabert, was, in the 16th and 17th centuries, where the silversmiths worked. One of them, Francois Roize, had the hoise on the opposite corner built between 1578 and 1618. Space was so sought after that he had his corbelled stairway installed here, in a turret supported by two caryatids and a Telamon, the floors and a conical roof of which are covered with slate tiles. This house is also called the "Maison du Boulanger" (the baker's house). It has a corbelled construction, a gabled roof and projecting roof timbers. The dormer window on the roof that opens onto the rue Paillot-de-Montabert still has a pulley that bakers used to raise bags of flour to the loft. The pretty half-timbered house was, in 1964, the first house to be renovated in the historic centre.
