The Major John Gile House is the quintessential example of how a 1763 home can be extensively restored to assure comfortable living for today while maintaining the rich historic features and character of the 18th Century. Museum quality restoration has taken place for over 30 years to get the house where it is today. There is over 3300 square feet of living space in this home which is on three acres of wooded land.
Originally built to be a tavern, when you enter initially you will see the tavernkeepers welcome cage which today is set up as an office. The original kitchen and public room have a large working fireplace with an open concept kitchen at one end of the space. The Kitchen has period cabinetry and butcher block counters with updated appliances. There are two front rooms both sizeable with fireplaces. This completes the first floor of the original house. Behind the kitchen is a two-room addition added in the early 1800s. There is a 1/2 bath in this section.
On the second floor there are three bedrooms, two with fireplaces and two full baths. An unfinished walkup attic is a potential for expansion or to be used for extensive storage. Outside, the grounds are beautiful with a private patio overlooking the backyard. The detached barn serves as a garage and also a home for the antique business that the sellers operate. This breathtaking home has been featured in Early American Life.
In addition to the gift shop, income is currently generated from use on AirBnB. The Major John Gile House is stunning…..but you really have to see it for yourself!! Call us for a private tour.
