Plain School House


This former kindergarten has been artfully converted to a comfortable, spacious residence. Who hasn't been intrigued by the possibility of living in a school house? Here are some of the features.

There is a darling kitchen- not fancy but with new appliances, wonderfully set up to enable lovely views, while cooking and washing dishes. The cobalt-tiled Kitchen opens to the Hearthroom with unique wood burning Ukrainian fireplace.

Between the hearthroom and the gallery room, there is a partial wall made of slate (from the old black board) and wood, allowing for book storage, some painting cubby storage, as well as good waterproof surfaces for potted plants.

The so-called gallery space, with a wall of east facing 8 foot tall windows, and 12 ft ceilings lends itself to a multitude of activities: dance? quilting room? meditation? painting studio? teaching space? day care?

There are baths on both levels, two spacious bedrooms with good closets, one study w/built-ins. The windows in the lower level are new and have screens. There is a good utility room with nearly new furnace, a/c, water heater, built in shelving for tools and egress to outside.

There is a huge garage w/ attached studio, good exhaust fan, more built-in shelving, 2nd floor storage (dry but unheated). This studio is surrounded by lovely, gently sloping, mature landscaping, with room to add a veggie garden. In the summer the trees provide good shade and privacy.

This property belongs to listing agent, Pat Whyte, and has not been marketed over the snowy winter! It is showable almost any time, just call Pat for an appointment!
