This historic building was once a classroom in the 1900's. This building is a little piece of Abbot's history with lots of character and unique features. Inside it has many original details like hardwood floors and window trim. As a old schoolhouse, it would be a beautiful building restored, converted to a residential home or even turned into a place of business.

    It’s small but would be a great place for a single person. I could even see making the blackboard part of the kitchen and using it to make lists and just in general have fun with it. You could do a mostly open plan with the bedroom being more closed off.

    This would be a cozy anything: house, display space, café, bookstore — it was a cozy school, I’m sure! Love the one-holer, and the bell still on the door. Hard place to resist.

    A loft bedroom would be a perfect idea for such a cute little home! I love this. I hope someone saves it and cleans it up for the right purposes!

    Well now Abbot is a small village in Maine. It is between Dover-Foxcroft and Greenville Maine. Busy area for visitors to the state, for skiing, outdoors people that enjoy nature. So if a coffee house, gift store, will make it. As long as mister winter cooperates. Or moose and big game seasons are good you can make loads of money. For those hunting seasons bring in billions of dollars.

    This place has so many possibilities! Abbot is a tiny town, in the middle of Maine, barely near any well-traveled highway, so it would be VERY hard to run any kind of successful business, unfortunately. But it would make a cute space for a studio apartment, or an artist studio!

    It would make a great antique shop!

    972 sq ft isn’t really all that small. Lots of three bedroom homes in not much more space than that. If the space were well designed it would feel quite spacious when restored, especially with the lovely high ceilings. I think adding a loft space (the ceilings look high enough, don’t they?) would really add a lot of living area without disrupting the main room…that way the light could continue to flood the place unimpeded by added interior walls.

    I definitely would leave the blackboard, and the bell… not so sure about the ‘sanitary facilities” , because that would make just a teeny tiny bath. I wonder how well insulated the building is. The roof looks a little rough to me, and the windows look like they could use a little TLC, but the floor looks gorgeous! There is even a cool old rolling coat rack to use as a closet.

    I’m thinking of a one bedroom cottage with partitioning to create the needed spaces that avoid the “doll-house” curse.

    Oh so remote. I am telling you in these rural areas of Maine an antique store is not valued. You can go to garage sales and pick up antiques because they are getting rid of the “old stuff”. However, you are near Bangor, which is an hour away with plenty of shopping. Winters are, well long and cold but if you don’t mind that this is a very beautiful area.
