The house was originally built in 1804, rebuilt in 1854, and constantly under renovation from 1966 until the present day. It was a one-room schoolhouse for over a hundred years. It sits on the corner of Bennett Street and another dead end road which goes into Whiteface Intervale, which was once described by Robert Frost as the most beautiful spot in New Hampshire.
The layout of the house is a bit unusual. The downstairs part of the original schoolhouse consists of an entry door and foyer, a bedroom with queen size bed, a full bathroom with tub/shower and a living/dining area with a convertible sofa. Carpeted throughout. A swinging door leads into the kitchen, which is in the downstairs portion of the addition. The kitchen gives off into another living/dining area. The addition also has an entry door from the outside, leading into a foyer with a door to a large utility room.
A stairway up from the kitchen leads to a large studio space containing a genuine WWII bunk bed (upper and lower), a utility closet with W/D and an on demand WH for both bathrooms, a bedroom with 2 metal frame twin beds which can be tied together to make a king size, and another full bath (tub/shower).
The layout described above allows for the use of the house by 2 families, with only the kitchen having to be shared. The house sits on a corner lot of approximately 2 acres of mostly wooded property. The owner possesses another lot of approximately 15 acres in Whiteface Intervale.+ More
