Got renovating on your mind? This historic schoolhouse house in Ulster County, NY needs a complete overhaul. 

The Greenville Schoolhouse was built in the mid-1800s and served in its intended capacity for nearly a century. Since 1950, though, the property has been owned by a single family, and now it’s on the market for just under $100K, ready for a new owner, and seriously in need of an upgrade.

The 432-square-foot interior is exactly what you’d expect from a one-room schoolhouse: It’s mainly a single room, kept warm by a woodstove, with wood floors throughout and a simple rustic kitchen set-up in one corner.

While it needs just about everything, the house does comes with electricity and a drilled well. There’s also a separate bunk house on the half-acre property.

In addition to its obvious historic value, the Greenville Schoolhouse’s location is the kind that one dreams about when considering living in the Catskill Mountains. Situated at the entrance of Vernooy Kill Falls Trail, the property borders the 31,000-acre Sundown Wild Forest. Follow the trail for two miles, and you’ll find yourself face-to-face with the falls, which spills into a refreshing swimming hole below.
