Country Schoolhouse Retreat

A symmetrical entrance creates a classic façade.

An iconic white picket fence and cheerful red trim frame the front door of a refurbished 19th-century schoolhouse. Owners Carmen Dunjko and Barnaby Marshall's handyman friend and neighbour, Fred Lynn, restored the original bell tower. The red tin roof is a new addition.
