    Default An estate in rural Russia

    Irene Commeau, a Parisienne who lives in Moscow, first bought land in the rural Russian village of Petrushovo in 1995. Since then she has created an 11-acre estate that includes this 3,875-square-foot house. It was created by combining two old wooden schoolhouses that Ms. Commeau had moved to the property.

    I like. Very Little House on the Prairie (well the Olson's fancier place).

    Well, I like the outside. That's about it. The rest is too cluttered.

    Too dark and dreary. Can you imagine it in winter? I would need therapy.

    At first glance, I would not think this was in Russia. The more I look at it, the more it screams 'Dostoevsky novel' to me, though.

    2) you have too much shit in your place

    3) it has potential, but you fucked it up

    I could like the house itself, both inside and out, and yeah it's too cluttered. What bothers me most is that I can't figure out the uses of the rooms. A bed in the same space as a dining table? It looks like you could drift around the house eating meals and falling asleep in endless random places.

    It is Russia.

    Typical and usual, albeit more china than one might expect to encounter. It is a very beautiful country Russian estate.

    As a foreigner, she is a unique women. I have read about her elsewhere. Kudos to her.
