Circa 1875 schoolhouse on two acres in Maine. Love the old stove! $269,000

January 20, 2022

I love the stove in this old schoolhouse! It was built in 1875. It is located on 2.15 acres in Cumberland, Maine. The schoolhouse was moved to the current location in the early 1900’s. The current owners have started work and put a new roof on the structure. There is a basement with an old slate sink. The siding is original clapboards. Three bedrooms, one bathroom and 1,008 square feet. $269,000

From the Zillow listing:


Own a piece of history! Step back in time as you enter this 1875 schoolhouse, moved in the early 1900’s to its current location from elsewhere in west Cumberland and converted to a 3 bedroom home. With its stone foundation and red clapboards, you will know you are in the right place when you arrive! Set on over 2 acres on a level, wooded lot, the feel is more rural than its location a short commute from Portland might suggest. The sellers have given the new owners a head start on updating over the past few years by connecting to public water, replacing the roof and many of the windows, refreshing much of the paint and flooring, and more, while the brick hearth in the living room, old cookstove in the kitchen, and slate sink in the basement remain as a nod to the past. Some additional updating is needed, giving the new owner the opportunity to make this special home their own!
