This former Stamford schoolhouse on a quarter-acre has the potential to be a sweet little abode after some restoration work. 

Built in the 1870s, its days as a single-room school might be long gone, but its future as a country house seems bright…as long as the right buyer comes along. Could that be buyer be you? If so, here’s what you’ll be getting for the five-figure listing price…

…starting with the main room, which includes both a wood stove and some chalkboards…

…and a utilitarian kitchen that works, but it needs to be finished with new appliances and cabinetry installed. Don’t forget the floors!

There is a full bath here, but there are no bedrooms, so unless you’re looking for a single-room studio, you’ll need to plan for building a bedroom/bedrooms. Maybe just “bedroom” singular, as the interior size is 840 square feet…

…which doesn’t seem like much, until you consider the wide-open spaces surrounding this property. The quarter-acre lot sits just a few minutes west of Stamford village – AKA “The Queen of the Catskills” – in northern Delaware County. Happy Five-Figure Friday, everyone!
