The historic River District Schoolhouse with land along the shoreline of Lake Lillinonah is offered for the first time in over 50 years. This is a rare event! In 1894, the town sited this barrel ceiling one room school house on a stone lined rushing brook where for 36 years, the children of Bridgewater were educated and communed with nature. This enchanting property has been a summer home in the same family for over half a century. The great room with fieldstone fireplace served as the only classroom where the original teacher's desk, 1906 Sears map rack and curtain maps remain. Over the years many updates have been done – kitchen is fully applianced some replaced in the last few years. There is an adorable breakfast nook and rustic cabinetry. The screened porch overlooks a charming bridge, miniature "falls", brick patio and gorgeous gardens. A free form gunite pool sits beyond the house under canopy of ornamental trees. This house is heated with warm air furnace. House is uninsulated but can be. This is a special country property in idyllic Bridgewater. Property is comprised of house, garage, pool on 1.44 acres, 4.18 acres on Henry Sanford, 0.36 acre along Lake Lake Lillinonah Road North.
