Rural Schoolhouse Rock

26456 Hoehn Rd., Sedro Woolley, WA 98284

This relatively remote home an hour and a half north of Seattle is, according to the listing, “the historic 1910 Skiyou School House.”

Although the exterior has a unique look, the interiors look like any other normal home.

This is my favorite bit from the listing description:

Everything you want from a turn of the century home; original bell tower, fir floors, cloak rooms, vintage Monarch cook stove & enchanting character.

Yup, an “original bell tower” is definitely on the list of things that I want from a turn of the century home.

Unfortunately, it seems that the bell itself might not currently be properly installed.

  1. Whew! You don’t see any bathrooms until photo 20. I was thinking that another turn-of-the-century feature was going to be the outhouse in photo 3.

    Oh, but such lovely high ceilings! I don’t know that I’d want to live in Sedro Woolley, I quite like the house.

    Lots to like here. Love the enormous windows in the living room, though I’d have to have some sort of sheers or draperies, especially on hot, sunny days and at night. I’d also need more/better lighting in the kitchen, but for heaven’s sake tell me the enormous old humdinger of a stove stays!

    There’s a strange number of ceiling treatments ranging from what looks to be tin in the living room (or maybe some newfangled look-alike), to plain in the kitchen and gray bedroom (Pic 21), to… drop panels? Really? (Pics 14, 15). Skip the last one, please, do something with the plain ones (a la Pic 17) and just enjoy the tin. :)

    (BTW Marty, I personally don’t connect the concept of “normal home” with “avocado colored walls” – ever. But at least the room is big enough to handle the impact.)

    @MsWildhack: What’s wrong with Sedro Woolley? I checked google maps and Wikipedia. Seems just like a small town in upstate Washington. Is there something else I missed? Or is it just the relative isolation?

    SW is a bit rural for my liking. And I’m sure there are lots of lovely people in rural Washington, but during my time in Seattle, I rather got the impression that there’s a bit of a “Deliverance” vibe in a lot of rural WA. (Maybe I just watched too much “Almost Live!”)
