    1.4 km to the 401 sits this stunning one-room schoolhouse originally built in 1913 that is still cherished today as much as it was then. It ran as an active schoolhouse from 1913-1966. We must give thanks to the Pioneers that laboured to build & maintain this extraordinary structure that played an important part of this community. Many of the descendants still live in the area. Although it now features modern conveniences, some special features are well-preserved to this day. The most obvious is the separate double entrance doors (girls & boys). The second is the main classroom with its slate chalkboards & ledges. Gas lights installed in 1917, telephone in 1922, hydro in 1930, gas furnace in 1959. Evening films were shown to adults in the school from 1950-1965. This school was kept modern & had devoted educators & administrators. It was hailed as one of the finest one-room schools in the Province. Today the stewards (Shelley & Hans) have been the only family to use the school as a residential home. They have improved the home while lovingly trying to keep as many original items as possible, leaving some original desks with brass ink wells still in the classroom. There are soaring 10??? ceilings of the main room. Natural gas stove, dryer, furnace, water heater, fireplace & BBQ. Natural gas generator will power the house in the event of a power outage. Sitting or dining in the 3-season sunroom is a true pleasure, featuring 2 ceiling fans & panoramic views. Finished lower has many LARGE windows. This 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom home on over an acre features two paddocks, chicken & rabbit coops. It also features a wooded area at the back complete with treehouse. Sheep & other livestock have been kept in the paddocks. The owners have many small greenhouses & a small office that has been used for growing and selling plants to many loyal customers. 4 minutes to the 401 highway. Owning & living in a piece of history is an opportunity you should not pass up!
