About: John Gile purchased this property over ten years ago as it had been built by his ancestors in the early 1800s Since that time John has enjoyed sharing the home with his family and friends.
Why Franklin, NH, USA:
We purchased this home because it had been built by our great-great-great-great grand father in 1804. The Home stayed within our family until the early 1900's. We love this home as a place for family gatherings over holidays such as July 4th, Thanksgiving and Christmas.
The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
We are very flexible with the size of your group. The size of this home makes it perfect for larger groups such as family reunions, holiday events, weddings, etc.
