    1901 Folk Victorian
    Chestatee, GA

    This is also available for $20,020,020 USD on 2761 acres.

    Google translate for description, sounded a little weird for some words perhaps someone can translate better:

    Sublime tercentenary house with historic cachet. Built in the seventeenth century, the house has 13 rooms including 4 bedrooms and 2 + 1 bathrooms. Warm atmosphere preserved by these wooden beams, stone walls, wooden cabinets … Big lot and ben more! Live the story!

      Thanks! The only French I can remember is Frère Jacques.

      If you go to Sotheby’s site, there are photos of the house in summer. Since there are also pictures of the house in winter, I’m gonna guess this house has been on the market quite a while. Maybe the owners would bargain, and sell for quite a bit lower? Do you think they’d take, oh, maybe around $120,000 American for it? And throw in French lessons? Seriously, the only thing about this gem that I don’t care for, is that there are not enough pictures of the kitchen-in one it looks very narrow. And, I don’t like that door opening right into the living room. Winters in Montreal are said o be brutal, and I wouldn’t want all my nice warm house air going outside everytime someone opens that front door. Maybe the addition of a mudroom with a door on it would help. LOVE this house!

        I’m sure there is another door. There is a lot a house in the province of Québec with a door at the front. But more of the house don’t use it. It is just a safety in case of a fire. There most be more than one door in a house.

        it seems there are two kitchens!

      It is a good translation, just the last words, Big lot and much more! Live history! Will be the right words.

      Bonne nouvelle! The price with the extra hectares is down to $19.7M!

      I’d pull the trigger on it (that’s about all I’d do since I’m a little short on cash)…but, save for the shell, there’s almost nothing left historically/archaeologically speaking of this riverside maison ancestrale except the shell, meaning the stone walls. Hard to tell for sure from the pix, but I’m guessing not even the poutres apparentes (exposed beams) are original. If they are, the hewing marks have been sanded into oblivion. Kelly, can you find one of these in the avant stage, meaning historically intact? That would be an old house dream come true!

    1988 Fake Greek Revival!

    “Sublime three-century-old house with historic cachet. Built in the 17th century, the house has 13 rooms including 4 bedrooms and 2 1/2 bathrooms. Warm atmosphere maintained by exposed beams, stone walls, wood cabinets. Large lot and much more. Live the history!”

    Atmospheric place, love the old plank floors.

    I love this house so much. I can usually spot several things that I would want to change but only the bathroom(s) in this wonderful house might need to be updated a little.

    1640! Is that a record for North America on OHD?

    That’s about the time my French ancestors left Ozillac, France and relocated to Quebec. How’d I enjoy living in that house! It’s gorgeoous.

    This house makes me want to move to Canada almost as much as listening to Justin Trudeau talk about just about anything.

    1875 Limestone house
    Loire Valley, France,

    I added it to my faves STAT! The kind of rustic house i love love love. Stones, beams, but not too oppressing/dark.

    It is located near a lumberyard or something… But quite close to Québec city though!

    Can one imagine owning 2700 acres of land????

  9. ElizabethElizabeth says: 57 comments

    Je veux cette maison! This one is incredible. I had no idea there were homes this old in Canada. The city I live in in Western Canada just loves to bulldoze historic buildings so I appreciate anything older than 1900 in this country. This one is just an absolute gem!

    Oh my gosh that’s gorgeous! The exterior stonework is amazing. This is the first house I looked at and I can see already it’s going to be hard to pick a fav today.

    Oh man! I am so ready to jump in the one of the recliners in front of that fireplace. Not only is this a gorgeous house I love winter and I’m ready to move to Canada!
