    Description

    The historic Peabody Schoolhouse is a country retreat, situated close to beaches, but with easy access to main roads, the Pell Bridge and convenient shopping. Built in 1794 and first converted to use as a summer retreat in 1929. The Schoolhouse has been updated and restored by owner and noted residential designer John Peixinho. The estate-like grounds include a stone-lined brook, original stone walls, rhododendron borders and mature specimen trees. An outdoor porch, provides three season living space. A small barn with large screen doors, has been converted to a studio/living room. The Schoolhouse itself abounds with charm. The living room provides seating for three groups,features french doors that lead to the outdoor areas, includes a built-in window seat, and a wood-burning fireplace with an early 19th century Newport mantle with a surround of aubergine-colored Dutch delft tiles. One of the original coat rooms remain and functions as an entrance hall, while the other has been enlarged and serves as a dining room, but has also been used as a first floor bedroom. The first floor also includes a full bath and kitchen, with breakfast area. The second floor includes two bedrooms and one bath. One bedroom includes the bell tower with the original, functioning school bell. The Peabody Schoolhouse's park-like grounds are manageably-maintained but afford a private estate-like setting.The charming house is a welcome oasis in summer months and a wonderful get-a-way in the winter.
