          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 1973

          About the owner: Upon returning from several years living Asia in the late 60's and early '70's, we acquired a 19th century barn. In 1972 we had it disassembled and moved the materials to our site. We designed and built 'Mont House,' as our boys called it that year.

          Why the Owner Chose Fayston:
          We bought the property because we loved the area and enjoyed skiing. We learned to enjoy the summers as much as the winters in the Valley and met several families to play with. We spent all long weekends and school vacations in Fayston with family and friends.

          The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
          The site of our home is with fantastic views east and south; we also appreciate the privacy of 8 acres on a town dirt road that dead-ends. There are many nature walks and places to enjoy peace and quiet, yet it is minutes to the village.
