The Old Albion Schoolhouse served as a school for the town of Albion from 1924- 1970. In 1998, legendary record producer, Bill Bottrell renovated it into a luxurious home.
The house is 5,000 square feet and sleeps 6- 10 people. It is equipped with a huge master bedroom and a master bath with a view. There are two other bedrooms with half baths, and an additional large bathroom identical to the one in the master bedroom. The grand room looks over the ocean and includes a bar as well as a pull out couch.
A favorite room in the house is the library. This room is equipped with a stage, theater lights, a sound system including speakers, bass, microphones, instruments, and ipod hook ups.
Bottrell used the library as his recording studio at one point and artists such as Sheryl Crow, Shelby Lynne, Seal, and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers recorded in there.
