The cottage is historic--originally a traditional Pennsylvania field-stone schoolhouse dating from the late Federal Period. It is the first of the seven one-room schoolhouses built in Rockland Township. From the 19th century until the 1950s, it was a fully-functioning country school. The schoolhouse was converted to a residence in the 1960s, but retains much of its original architecture and appointments, as well as a majestic catalpa tree planted to provide shade for the school children.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1983

                  About the owner: Friendly art historian/designer. Born and raised in Asia, I love international design and traditional folk arts, which is why my spaces are eclectic, decorated in European, Pan-Asian, and Moroccan styles. One of the main reasons I like sharing my spaces is because, in this way, I am also sharing experiences and beauty I have encountered while traveling.

                  Why the Owner Chose Fleetwood:
                  Peaceful... with spectacular landscape views and surroundings. More than anything else, the beauty and serenity of the cottage and its natural setting refresh the senses and mind.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Relaxation, wellness, refreshing!
