Norwegian Woods: INCREDIBLE PROPERTY at
9697 Maple Grove Rd, Ephraim, WI 54211
Although I've never met a property that I haven't loved, every now and again I'm lucky enough to share something really special--something that knocks me off my feet. We have a truly special property with our new listing at 9697 Maple Grove Road in Ephraim, Wisconsin--a one-of-a-kind offering that is like stepping back in time to Norway, with hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind homes situated on a 12 acre private, wooded setting that is simply unbelievable. Buyers, get ready for your sneak-peek, private tour of the incredible Door County property known as Binkhaven Nord.
WITH A MID-MODERN TWIST!
This property is simply incredible. Held in the same family for over 55 years, the buildings were partially created in Norway and then shipped and lovingly assembled in the 1960s by hand, with no detail spared--from incredible custom craftsmanship that you no longer see to the authentic rosemaling in each one of the buildings.
We'll start our tour in the main house, a year-round home. Upon entry, the huge fireplace provides an incredible impression, as do the walls of windows, hardwood floors and incredible detail. You are, indeed, stepping into another world. This home features two large bedrooms and two full baths, two fireplaces, a sun room/family room, a sleeping loft, country kitchen with wooded views and too many custom features to even mention here.
MAIN RESIDENCE IN AUTUMN:
CLASSIC AND AUTHENTIC SCANDINAVIAN CONSTRUCTION
MAIN RESIDENCE VIEW 2 INTERIOR
My favorite room in the main house is the dining room, which features stone and glass. Can't you imagine entertaining holiday guests in this incredible room? This room cries out for a crowd for an evening of lively entertaining.
The detached garage has an upper level living area--with wood stove--and built-in bunks, but the FUN part of this part of the property is the authentic Scandinavian sauna off the full bath on the first floor. The bunk-room features built-in bunks and also a half bath on the second floor.
THE BUNK ROOM, WITH AUTHENTIC ROSEMALING, FEATURES A
CLASSIC 1960S MID-MODERN WOOD STOVE
The property also boast two seasonal cottages, and these structures even have grass roofs. The Veslebur Cottage is a one bedroom/half bath cottage with built-in bunks and a half-bath. Plus, the most authentic of Scandinavian features, a classic grass roof.
ALL YOU NEED IS A GOAT TO KEEP THIS
GRASS ROOF MOWED!
One of my very favorite parts of this listing is the other seasonal, plumbed guest cottage known as the Stabbur (on most Norwegian farms there would historically be a Stabbur), a building designed for the storage of food). One of Door County's most famous Stabburs is located at Al Johnson's Swedish Restaurant and Butik, which is world-renowned for its own goats on the roof, but this property does boast its own Stabbur....and it's amazing!
I think the thing I love the most about the Staburr is the incredible mid-modern Scandinavian decor--the likes of which I have never seen. This incredible property was featured in House Beautiful magazine, so I don't think I'm alone in realizing that this is simply a one-of-a-kind property.
Talk about owning a piece of history!! The furnishings are not included, but are available separately. Learn more about 9697 Maple Grove Road in Ephraim, WI here.
This incredible and utterly captivating property was even featured in House Beautiful magazine!! This is your opportunity to own an incredible piece of Scandinavian history on over twelve wooded acres in one of Door County's most popular villages. Binkhaven Nord was named after its owner's nick-name, "Bink", and Haven Nord is the Scandinavian translation for "North Haven". Even it's NAME is full of charm.
I find it simply incredible that TWO mid-modern homes in Ephraim that I have represented have been featured in national magazines. See my previous listing, which was featured in Better Homes and Gardens in 1954!
I've sold a lot of once-in-a-lifetime homes, and this one is so special that I hope its future owner loves it as much as its current owners have.

With current bed count, this incredible Ephraim property for sale can easily sleep up to TWENTY PEOPLE. Rental may be allowed (consult the Village of Ephraim)--can you imagine spending a week on this incredible property? You'd walk away with a LIFETIME of memories. Close to the Ephraim/Gibraltar airport, this incredible property is PERFECT for the air commuter that wants to enjoy the authentic Scandinavian spirit and heritage of Door County.
