The schoolhouse was a wonderful looking building even before we renovated, we fell in love with the house and the local people and decided to move to Rockport. We could moor our boat in the harbour in summer and we loved the extreme winter weather. We moved in after renovations were complete in 2010. We had the best building experience with our fabulous architect Peter Gross and wonderful contractor Lew Sukeforth. We were very lucky and creating the new renovated version of the schoolhouse was very exciting. We could not have hoped for a better outcome and the house is totally unique for the area with lots of open space, a wood fire for winter which actually heats 2 floors and in summer this place is magical.
We chose this location after sailing the entire coast up from NY and Camden/Rockport had the most beautiful harbours along this coast. Rockport at one time was nominated on a travel site the most beautiful harbour in the USA. Rockport Village has the working harbour, swimming, nice restaurants but is just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of camden.
The house is luxurious, open plan, massive with spectacular views, wonderful neighbourhood, quiet street and is centrally located right above Rockport Harbour and 5 minute drive to Camden. The property has character within an architectural space, it's a beautiful building in a perfect location.
