Property Description

Now is your chance to finish the inside of the beloved Gingerbread House in keeping with what the Norway Landmarks Preservation Society and friends have done on the outside! The building will be transferred with a preservation easement to protect and maintain the exterior in its current condition. The outstanding craftsmanship that you can see on the exterior of this beauty, carries through on the inside and then some. Ribbon molding throughout along with hardwood floors, ornate archways, gracefully curved windows and unusual steam radiators just scratch the surface of the old world charm this home exudes. This home was moved to its current location at the head of Main Street on June 11, 2011, and was placed on a brand new, full, poured concrete foundation. Since then the list of improvements have been impressive and include: - New 35 year architectural shingle roof - 2 chimneys were completely rebuilt using the original plans - Clapboards and trim restored or replaced and painted in historically correct colors on the entire house - Every window has been professionally restored - New 200 AMP electrical panel installed - Town water and sewer were brought to the building - Bricks sheath the concrete foundation above grade - Stone retaining wall - Landscaping With the exterior completely finished, the utilities in or at the building, and the bounty of charm already in the home, the finish line is well in sight! Call today to make an appointment to see this iconic gem!
