This Adorable Converted Schoolhouse Is on the Market for Less Than $300,000
It may be odd to anthropomorphize a house, but when I first saw this petite abode for sale in small-town New York, my first thought was to pinch its cheeks. It’s just that cute! Transformed from a 19th-century schoolhouse, this antique building is now a sun-filled, one-bedroom home that’s perfect for anyone who loves traditional features mixed with hints of modern fun.
- Where: Elizaville, New York
- Price: $295,000
- Size: 706 square feet
- Bedrooms: 1
- Bathrooms: 1
The first floor comprises an open living space with tall ceilings, soothing white walls, and original hardwood floors (look closely and you can even spot some of the imprints from where school desks used to rest).
The L-shape kitchen has been updated with cabinets that are painted a bright white above and a navy blue below, creating an airy yet sophisticated aesthetic. The butcher-block countertops between coordinate with the surrounding wood floors, and give the area a more casual detail.
The lofted bedroom is upstairs from the living space, which maintains a classic vibe with a louvered closet door, wooden floors painted gray, and a handblown glass window.
What I love about this home is its simplicity, which contrasts nicely with pops of pink throughout. The coral front door is a cute preview to the hue that covers the first-floor bathroom, which is rosy from the walls to the clawfoot soaking tub. Pared with gold accents, the room is an adorably retro space to indulge in all of your self-care.
