This Turn-of-the-Century One-Room Schoolhouse is a Charming Residence in Rural Columbia County, $176,500

  |  April 4, 2017

This week, we’re in Rural Columbia County checking out the residential real estate offerings. That’s where we learned about this ridiculously charming one-room school house, originally built in the early 20th-century, transformed into a comfortable private home.

For the <$200,000 listing price, the property includes 1300 square feet, three bedrooms, one full bath + 3/4 bath, and over an acre of land. Also included in the listing price are hardwood floors, Craftsman-style wood details + built-ins, big kitchen, dining room/living room flow conducive to entertaining company, and a deep claw-foot tub in the master bath.

If you’re curious about the location, the property is situated off of County Route 7 in eastern Columbia County, close to both the MA and CT borders. This is one of those areas that’s two hours from NYC but feels like a million miles away. It’s the countryside, indeed, but the hamlet of Copake – bank/market/gas/pizza/wine – is only 2 miles away, which is walking distance if the weather gets really, really bad. Or, you could just get one of these:





Or decent snow tires, up to you.

Also nearby: Hillsdale, Taconic State Park/Copake Falls, the Berkshires, and Lake Taghkanic State Park.
