This former one room school house built in 1867, originally known as The Academy is the headquarters and offices of The Academy Printing Press, a long time long business since the 1940’s when a printer moved in after the private tuition only school was closed and students went to the emerging local public schools. Construction of the Academy Building began when its founding members, some of whom donated $1000 reached a target goal of $5000.
The Academy was designed and constructed by a local architect working with a local builder. Their intention was to create a building that was warm in winter, cool in summer and filled with an abundance of natural light and fresh air. The original 13 foot tall windows are all still there and in perfect condition along with the rest of this very well maintained building where its owners have respected its historical landmark status.
The current owner’s father worked at the printing business for 21 years before buying both the business and the building. He owned and oeprated The Academy Printing Press for several years before his son ( and current owner) took over.
The building has landmark status and is located in the Southold Town Historic District. The property is also in the heart of the hamlet business district and has mixed use zoning, including use as a commercial and, or residential building, including single and multi-family use. This is an ideal building in a great location for office, residential, retail and business use. It is ideal for those who want to live where they work, have more home office space, or want to create a dynamic loft like open space home. The house located on The North Fork on Eastern Long Island is close to the bus and train to NYC and is in the heart of the wine country, close to farms, beaches, boating, and golf courses. Also near the Town Hall, the post office, the library and downtown shopping area.
