Five-Figure Friday: Northwestern Edition – c.1915 Schoolhouse Fixer Upper, $52K

  |  March 2, 2018

Let’s head north to East Worcester today for this antique schoolhouse fixer upper…

In an effort to find something a bit different this week for Five-Figure Friday, we’re up in Otsego County, town of Worcester. That’s pretty far northwest, but hey: Sometimes, you gotta go out of town to find a gem. And, this schoolhouse fixer upper could be one such gem.

With 8,500 square feet of space, the c.1915 building is nothing short of cavernous but still outfitted in its most recent incarnation as a plumbing supply company. If you can see beyond the multiple shelving units and clutter, however, the schoolhouse’s charms are apparent. Wood floors, high ceilings, and an original staircase (although currently closed up) await an awakening.

Since this essentially a stripped-down space, prepare to do some work. No mentions of functioning baths in the listing, so we’re going to assume the worst. Always a safe approach when looking at fixer uppers.

The 1.1-acre lot includes a loading dock as well as number of outbuildings. Situated in a highly-visible spot along Main Street, about 20 minutes west of Cobleskill. If you need some relativity vis-a-vis the location, it’s approximately 3.5 hours from NYC, most of which is I-87 Thruway driving. Cooperstown, home of the Baseball Hall of Fame and Ommegang Brewery, is a half-hour west.
