About the Property
House, 2 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5) Pet Friendly :)
This home began as a 2 room schoolhouse in 1909. The original building stands unchanged today .There are 12 foot ceilings throughout , hardwood floors,built-in book cupboards and tall windows to encourage summer sea breezes.The front entry was once the 'cloakroom' and greets you with pastel- colored stained glass sidelights.
Since the school's closing in 1949, a bathroom , kitchen, and 2 porches have been added.
One schoolroom is now the 'great room' and dining room.The other schoolroom has been divided into 2 14'x14'bedrooms.Each has a walk-in closet. One has a king-size bed and armoire and desk . Both bedrooms have 3 large windows and cooling cross-ventilation.The second bedroom has 2 twin beds, a dresser and a built-in book cupboard.
The kitchen is 'galley ' style (i.e. small and efficient) and has the basics--full-size stove,microwave,coffee maker, open shelving and lower cabinets. An antique armoire serves as a pantry . The kitchen's best features are the bay window over the sink and the 'butler's window' that allows one to view the river while at the stove .
The bathroom is roomy and has a claw-foot tub with a shower and a bay window. The sink is a mermaid design handmade by the owner.
There are 2 porches. One is enclosed and has a double-sized futon and faces the river. It has windows all-around. The 2nd porch is on the garden side and is open-air and covered. There is a nice swing--perfect for watching a summer shower or the many visiting birds and butterflies.
A kayak is available for paddling on the river or to transport it to a nearby pond or Goose Rocks.
The Schoolhouse owner is a Potter and will be working daily in her separate studio on the premises. The weekly rental fee includes 4 hours of studio time with basic instruction--or--work or play with clay on your own!
Pets are welcome!
