Today, the historic Summerville property has been reinvented into 12 luxury condominiums.

In thinking about Phase II of The SchoolHOUSE, the developers recognize the importance of designing new construction that complements the architectural character of both the original school building and its surrounding historic neighborhood. The new homesites will take cues from the brick and stucco of the school, as well as the classic details shown in fenestration, roof lines, porches and screen walls.
The SchoolHOUSE caters to those who appreciate history and architecture and who want to experience the charm of residing within the Summerville Historic District. It’s for those who don’t care to maintain a large yard but who want to enjoy a private greenspace.
