Driving Directions

This historic South Dorset Village Commercial building was built by Frank Norton, grandfather of Charlotte Brooks, in 1910 as the original South Dorset Schoolhouse. There were 2 classrooms on the first floor, and a meeting room with a stage on the second floor. The school closed in 1948 when students were moved to the Dorset Village School. At that time, the building became the Dorset Town Hall with Town Meetings being held on the second floor. The most present use of this building was home to Romano Publishing and Stratton Magazine. Rich in history, and architecturally beautiful in style, the main level, with 11 ft ceilings, is 1200 feet of office space with work stations, with a kitchen and half bath. This space can easily be divided into two separate offices, with separate entrances. There is ample parking out front. The upstairs space is a bright and open two bedroom apartment, with a generous kitchen and updated heat pump for optional heating and cooling. Step outside,enjoy the patio and fire pit, and listen to the babbling brook that runs through the back yard. This vintage Dorset property has been lovingly cared for and will be a "once-in-a-lifetime" treasure to its next owner.
