Listed by Brett Mulvey of Tate & Foss Sotheby's International Rlty
Welcome to the historic 1896 East School, once a cornerstone of Rye's educational legacy serving as one of the four neighborhood schools and now a residence waiting for its next chapter. Conceived by local aristocrat James Parsons, this former schoolhouse stands as a testament to its rich history and future potential. Parsons, a professor at the University of Pennsylvania, spearheaded the construction of this unique stone structure and rallying the community to gather beach stones from Wallis Sands. The architectural marvel is believed to be the design of famed architect Henry Hobson Richardson. Upon arrival, you'll be greeted by a sprawling lot, featuring an expansive sunny side yard perfect for large gatherings and leisurely afternoons with a wooded rear area ideal for privacy and wildlife encounters all benefitted by the salty sea breeze. Step inside to discover a blend of history and opportunity. Wood floors bear the marks of student desks and remaining chalk trays preserve the essence of the old single-room classroom. A stroll or bike ride away from Wallis Sands Beach, this property offers a classic beachside lifestyle. Imagine turning this enchanting home into your personal retreat, where every day feels like a vacation. Enjoy nearby attractions like Kook's for a beachside taco, Odiorne Point for concerts, or Downtown Portsmouth for shopping and dining. Schedule your tour today to unlock the potential of this remarkable property.
