C. 1870 Schoolhouse #1, turned into a private home last century, has been tastefully updated and is ready for new owners! Situated on 10 acres of woodlands just over the New Hampshire border, with close proximity to I-91 and Rt. 2, the location is an easy commute to Boston, Hartford and New York City. This historic property is completely charming and full of character and has had only a handful of owners since the schoolchildren left! Fully furnished with period antiques dating back to the home's original timeframe, this gem is perfect for your second home! The craftsmanship of the era is evident in the beautiful woodwork, the charm of the built-ins and luster of the gorgeous pine and fir flooring. The owners have done a complete updating of the upstairs, including a brand new bathroom and a partial updating of the downstairs. The original chalkboards were found under the wallpaper in the dining room! All period details were kept in place. There is a brand new septic system, as well as updates to plumbing, heating and electrical and new windows were custom made to resemble the originals. The outbuildings consist of a potting shed and what was used as a sugar house, both with electricity. The stone foundation has a walk-out in the back. The land is completely wooded, with long road frontage. The wooded piece across the street cannot be built on. There is flat back and side yards and the rest is rolling terrain. Burt Hill is a quiet country road with some gorgeous houses back in the hills. There is a charming inn downtown for dinner and guests to enjoy and boating, fishing, kayaking, horseback riding, snowmobiling and skiing are all nearby.

    A charming conversion. And I would keep the DR exactly as is, re: paint & wallpaper.

      I on the other hand would expose that blackboard the day I got the keys! Although the dining room is very pretty as is. There’s not much evidence of the schoolhouse history left in this home but it’s charming.

    So nice that they provide the old photo of the school. Really brings it to life for me. I would gather up, and display, everything I could find related to the school days, including exposing the blackboard.
