French heritage lovingly reestablished in the American rural countryside.

This is an authentic, antique French Normand house more than two centuries old. This unique home is situated on 73 acres of romantic undulating and very private land with 9.5 acre Heintein Pond stretching a half mile long full of a variety of fish and wildlife. The house was dismantled and reassembled by two different French teams and one American team taking more than three years to complete this labor of love, the details of which include the famous roof slates imported from Angers, France which have become so expensive that they are currently only used on rare occasions for special houses, churches, or castle restorations. This house also boasts imported windows, doors, stairs, and even the foundation stones.

This idyllic landmark is built on land previously inhabited by an Italian Countess where her country home built in 1910, still resides. Cherry, pear, and apple trees dot the landscape in the tradition of a typical Normand house.

Zoning is also favorable for home occupations, public and semi-public uses. Permitted uses with planning board approval include – Bed & Breakfast, Hotel, Camps and Campgrounds, and Multi-family dwellings along with many others.
