Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty Announces the Sale of “The School House” in Watch Hill

Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty is pleased to announce the sale of “The School House,” located at 20 Westerly Road, Watch Hill for $2,900,000. The sellers were represented by Donna Simmons, Sales Associate with Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty. Donna Simmons also facilitated the sale for the buyers.

Sized at just 912 square feet, this petite cottage features two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a two-story living room, and ocean views. Long part of the Ocean House cottage rental program, it has been recognized by Architectural Digest as one of 15 incredible former schoolhouses to spend the night in. “The School House” was the one and only school in Watch Hill, which opened in 1852 and was used until 1902 when the year-round population dwindled. It evolved into Mrs. Stevenson’s Little Shop in 1917. In 1945, it was purchased as a private residence and is now a noted landmark of Watch Hill.

“This lucky new owner understands the value of stewardship of this precious gem,” says Donna Simmons. “I am overjoyed that they can reap the benefits of the elite Watch Hill lifestyle.”
