According to a Norway historical society publication, this quaint Maine school house was constructed in the mid-1800s The property offers peace and privacy and is within easy reach of Norway downtown. The house sits on one acre of meadow with rough stone walls. There is a utility shed at the far end of the field. It features wide board sheathing in the roof and hand hewn timbers with an amazing belfry. The house has been partially renovated by the current owners with newly installed bathroom fixtures, vintage enamel kitchen sink, newer water pump, and hot water heater. This has been a family retreat for nearly 40 years. It is time for new owners to care for a small but lovely, private, peaceful piece of Maine history. Currently the property has a dug well and a new septic design is available for the new owners. Property being sold as-is.

    Cute! Wonder how they keep even a cozy space like this warm without insulation in the roof? I would trade out the fireplace for a wood stove or even a pellet stove would be efficient for this space. I would also insulate that roof (walls & floor if needed).

      It surely would be needed, but the ceiling/roof is so interesting to look at, I’d hate to cover it up. Once you get a woodstove, you need to plop a contented kitty in front of it. The meadow looks just luscious.

    Yes, not sure of the wisdom of taking the ceiling out in Maine. But it does make it more spacious feeling. I’m also puzzled by the lack of windows. Most old schoolhouses are more window than siding to allow light for reading. Very interesting place.
