Sometimes you can’t find the ideal combination of the ideal home and the perfect location. If that’s you, here’s an opportunity to purchase an entire village, complete with a choice of homes and a quaint, New England town to go with it.

Tuthill is a charming village of antique buildings in Pittston, Maine, all created by an antiques collector who literally found buildings he loved and had them moved to the 50-acre property. The result is a town with 25 structures including homes, shops, barns, churches and garages. The town does include some new structures, but they have been designed to look like they were constructed in the 1800s. Buy the town and you’ll have your choice of nine residences: four single-family homes, a two-family home, three apartments and a studio guesthouse. Asking price?  $5.5 million. Read all about it here. If this opportunity doesn’t fit your budget, consider a custom home in a location of your choosing. Sal Paone Builders are experts at making dream homes a reality.
