Maison Suisse, a large, classic shingle cottage designed by Frederick Savage and built in the late 1800’s, has recently been attractively updated and restored. The venerable residence has large living and dining rooms, and the kitchen includes a sunny alcove for a casual dining table, with an additional adjoining den or study. The residence has 10 bedrooms and 8 baths, and the third floor could be separate living quarters for a nanny or helper. Maison Suisse has retained many of the traditional architectural features, including Douglas Fir floors, a sleeping porch, decorative shingling, and the pleasant grounds surrounding it have been planted with colorful shrubs and flowers. The property is located on a large village lot in the center of town and provides ample off-street parking. While currently a family residence, with its proximity to town, this property could easily be reconfigured and used in a multitude of ways.
