This historic 3-Bedroom, 3-Bath home was once the one-room schoolhouse in the Amesville section of Salisbury.  A massive Great Room with fieldstone Fireplace, the original school house boasts oversized antique windows overlooking the Housatonic River Great Falls creating a grand gathering place in the heart of this home.
