Original And Updated

In Old Chatham, a schoolhouse built in 1890 has been converted into a residence with all the modern conveniences. Set in an enchanting setting, the five-bedroom, three-and-one-half bathroom conversion has a beamed-ceiling great room, kitchen with soapstone and maple touches, and a family room nook. A cupola loft provides room for both a media room and exercise space and a large screened porch overlooks the garden, terrace, and in-ground pool. The original schoolhouse bell still graces the front entry of the home. Listed for $595,000 by Houlihan Lawrence.

History Lessons

It was a schoolhouse in the 1820s, but now it’s a cottage on 119 acres in Rhinebeck, and it’s accompanied by a huge red barn with a wall of windows. The home has an eat-in kitchen, living room with fireplace, sunroom, two bedrooms, and an updated full bathroom. The two-level barn is in excellent condition and has potential as a studio or workshop. Just ten minutes to Rhinebeck Village, the property abuts 118 acres of conserved land. Listed for $849,000 by Northern Dutchess Realty.

School’s Out

From the outside, this house in Sharon looks like a classic Colonial, but in 1900 it was a schoolhouse. The historic home is freshly painted with refinished floors throughout, so it’s move-in ready with updates that include electrical, plumbing, heating and a newer roof. There is a kitchen with stainless steel appliances, living room with fireplace, wood stove, five bedrooms, and one-and-a-half bathrooms. The property is close to Mohawk Ski Area and hiking trails. Listed for $323,900 by Turning Point Realty.
