The Fosterdale Schoolhouse is now a Turnkey Home: $175K

  |  December 22, 2023

Upstater is wrapping up its schoolhouse week at the former Fosterdale Schoolhouse in western Sullivan County.

Dating back to 1880, the school served local schoolchildren for decades. Now, it’s a turnkey one-bedroom, one-bath home in a woodsy setting. White siding, black shutters, and a red standing-seam metal roof make up the exterior. A portico on the front deck has a red metal roof, too.

The whitewashed lathe walls and big windows in the living room give away the home’s past life. The floor is much newer, though.

A pellet stove warms up the open-concept space, which includes a dining area with a crystal chandelier overhead.

A chalkboard on the wall is a vintage touch.

The kitchen was nicely remodeled and has granite counters; a two-seat breakfast bar; white cabinetry; and white appliances including an electric range and fridge.

The bathroom is a beauty, with marble tile on the floor, a modern white sink sitting on a black vanity, and black accents that complement the white-tile tub/shower surround. The bedroom isn’t pictured in the listing.

The front deck is a dramatic black, just a step above a stone walkway.

The woods provide seclusion and peace here, yet the 0.88-acre property is under a 10-minute drive to Bethel Woods Center for the Arts and about 20 minutes to Route 17 and Resorts World Catskills.
