    Description

    Homeschooling has become popular in recent years but how about if your home was originally a school? Introducing for the FIRST time offered on the public market since THE 1883 OLD SCHOOL HOUSE (tax records only go back to 1900). A property so special it is listed on THE NATIONAL REGISTER OF HISTORIC PLACES (NRHP) and for preservation the MARYLAND HISTORICAL TRUST (MHT). This opens the door for some certified tax credits for approved (from MHT) improvements and restrictions. One may also want to check the possible matching grants through MHT for restoration to see what qualifies. Currently this home is used as a residential dwelling featuring 2 bedrooms, 1 full bath and 2 half bathrooms. This home can switch gears for commercial use (previously was the popular restaurant The Lily Pad Cafe) and is in the Denton zoning district designated CBC or Central Business Commercial. For commercial l use one must contact the Denton planning office for permitted uses subject to site plan review and approval from the planning commission. The National Register of Historic Places describes it as "a building with a Latin cross plan and several features of the Gothic Revival style, built about 1883." The style of the architecture gives the unique look often found in the design of churches. The windows are pointed arch with 4/4 Gothic sash and shutter blinds with louvered sections over raised panel ones. The 1883 Old School House (sometimes referred as The Denton Schoolhouse) was added to the NRHP on April 19, 1978 (reference #78001447). The property was/is also know as Women's Club of Denton in later years. Living in or visiting the property one will be struck by the IMPRESSIVE SIZE of the "club room" or "schoolhouse room" that is approximately 50x23 feet! So much possibility here with 15 foot in height original tin ceilings and hardwood floors all brought together and cozy with a wood burning stove. The kitchen features both cherry-wood and granite counter tops, has plenty of room for a kitchen table, a dream pantry space and a 6 burner stove. Once it served as a commercial kitchen but currently the family enjoys its meals with the gas logs warming them on a winters evening. The home has 3 zones of AC and 7 ceiling fans for summer cooling and winter heating with oil heat, gas logs and electric. The roof was replaced in 2018. Some of the other improvements inside are upgraded lighting, wainscoting, crown molding and more. Stepping outside the yard or courtyard is delightful with colonial gardens designed in the 70's with brick walkways and flowers. There is also a wooden privacy fence just outside the back door with a patio to entertain, relax or grill. The yard also has 2 more sheds for storage (1 with electric). The structure is also wheelchair accessible. Leaving the grounds you are a short walk just a few blocks to historic downtown Denton for the arts, a bite to eat or to shop. Very close by is the public landing to launch a boat, stop in the visitor center or enjoy a picnic on the waterfront park. Of course Denton which is a rising town on the Eastern Shore of Maryland is an easy day trip to the Maryland /Delaware beaches, Annapolis, Washington, DC, Baltimore, Philadelphia or Wilmington. This is a SHOW STOPPER! A once in a lifetime chance to own and live in a HISTORIC property. A great place to entertain, enjoy and just live! If you choose it for commercial purposes there is many ways this would attract customers/clients whether as an office, back to a cafe or whatever one chooses it is unique in so many ways and people will remember it as it certainly makes an impression. Make your appointment today. Realtors please have buyers pre-approved and be safe with masks/hand sanitizer during this COVID time.
