Our home is a large 1800's farmhouse that has been expanded and modernized to provide today's comforts with the charm of days long past. Upon entering out family home you will be welcomed into our lovely 'keeping room' with the original over sized fireplace and comfortable overstuffed sofas perfect for lively conversation or a quiet read in front of the fire. There are multiple other common rooms on the first level that are colonial and loaded with history and comfortable surroundings. Our kitchen is fully equipped with modern appliances and high-end cookware adjacent to a lovely dining room perfect for a simple breakfast or a gourmet Thanksgiving dinner. As you continue through the house you will enter the sunroom lounge area that looks out onto the patio, swimming pool, stone walls and open fields. This garden area is equipped with relaxing lounge furniture, a barbecue and fire pit perfect for friendly gatherings.

Year Purchased: 2003

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.
