Thabet House

Thabet House, Rosetta, Egypt

The Thabet House is interesting mainly because it is the oldest of the Ottoman merchants' houses of Rosetta, dating back to 1709. It has one detail which is different from most of the other; the corners are cut slantingly all the way up to the roof where the corners are finished off with the normal square corner.
