Property Description

“Free School House” This magnificent two-parcel, 53-acre waterfront property holds a special significance in Gloucester and our country. In his will of 1675, Henry Peasley gave 600 acres on the creek where he lived, today known as Free School Creek, for the “maintenance of a free school...”. It was the ancestor of today's public schools. Peasley's original home, built around 1650, was exceptional in its simplicity, constructed of brick that is 4 courses thick. These time-wizened brick walls are the living and dining room walls in the main home today. The property, in its first offering in over a century, consists of two parcels; one includes the main home and pier on 50.59 acres, primarily idyllic farmland fringed with 1884' of water frontage along Free School Creek. The second parcel; 2.62 acres and 1197' of water frontage, has a 1934 cottage on a peninsula with long views into the Severn River. The cottage has a screened porch, pier, boathouse and riprapped shoreline. A sprawling yard between the main house and the cottage, surrounded by water, gives this property a sumptuous feel of privacy, while just minutes from Gloucester amenities. Shown by appointment.
