Converted 1800s School House For Sale in Dutchess County, $344,900

Situated less than 10 minutes east of the Taconic State Parkway, this converted 19th-century one-room school house with an open, 1362 square foot interior dripping in countrified style.

From the 13-foot ceilings to the hardwood floors throughout, this two-bedroom cottage offers cozy warmth in the form of the living room/dining room wood stove with brick chimney, as well as built-in bookshelves, eat-in kitchen with pantry + stainless steel appliances, and a sleeping loft in addition to the home’s two bedrooms.

Sits on a one-acre lot that also includes a detached two-car garage with second story studio/home office space with 12-foot ceilings. This could be a guest cottage if you don’t need a studio.

Its location can’t be beat in terms of commuting ease since the Taconic Parkway is so close, and the affluent and equestrian-loving village of Millbrook is just a few minutes north (more on Millbrook here on Chronogram.com). Got family in Connecticut that you’d like to see more often? Millbrook is about 40 minutes from the northwestern corner of CT. Host them in style at your charming converted school house built in 1840.
