This completely renovated historic home has been modernized to perfection. Since it was originally built as a school, there is an open flow and flexibility to rooms that you won't find in similar period homes. Loads of windows having beautiful views out every window, overlooking lush easy to care for perennial gardens which burst with color all summer long.

The spacious living room features a magnificent original stone fireplace with a cozy wood stove and a grand period mantle above, exposed beams, pristine random width ash and oak flooring, pine paneled wainscoting, plaster walls with deep set curved window wells are some of the special features. A generous family room with one of the original school house built-ins, is a period pine cupboard, having storage below and glass paneled doors above for showcasing special items. The formal dining room with a sweet chandelier leads to the updated kitchen with quartzite counters, marble herringbone tile backsplash, professional stainless appliances, including a Viking Stove, farm sink, a large pantry with pullout shelving to maximize storage space, tile flooring highlighted by Mercer Tiles will satisfy any gourmet chef. On the other side of the kitchen counter, you'll find a large flexible space perfect for large gatherings, dining and entertaining.
