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.

 

SIMPLY SCANDINAVIAN

WITH A MID-MODERN TWIST!

Norwegian Woods Home for Sale

 

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.

 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.

 

Scandinavian Dining

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 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!

Staburr

Homes with Staburrs

 

 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.

What an amazing property, MaryKay Shumway, YourDoorCounty ... so many unique features and details are seen in your pics!  And the grass roofs??  Years ago when all our kids were little, my brother's family and ours visited Door County together.  We saw a home with a grass roof .. and there were goats on it.  (Makes me wonder if it was the property you showcase here.)  The kids still talk about that trip, the goats, and those roofs to this day.   What a special area you represent!  This home will capture someone's heart and imagination and be gone quickly, I know ...

Wow, 439,000 ?  What a deal MaryKay Shumway, YourDoorCounty .  I know that pictures can be deceiving, but some of those rooms don't look "tall person" friendly.
