This West Yarmouth listing is sure to please fans of adaptive reuse, Yankee thriftiness, micro-living lovers, and/or lifelong teacher's pets.
The 472-square-footer was apparently built in 1940, but has a wicked old bell on the roof. Here, we'll let the brokerbabble explain:
Charming converted Connecticut schoolhouse just a short walk to Colonial Acres Beach. Enlarged and completely renovated in 2006 to include a remodeled kitchen with new cabinets and appliances, a remodeled bath with new fixtures, two bedrooms, new roof, irrigation,and a new gas heating system. Also featured are a beamed vaulted ceiling, a beautifully manicured lot, gravel driveway and, yes, a genuine schoolhouse bell that was cast in 1855. A great year round retreat or investment opportunity!We're not sure how or why there's a schoolhouse from Connecticut on the Cape, but we're sure it seemed like a good idea at the time. Regardless, the lil' place first hit the market in January asking $249,000 and has since taken three meetings with the PriceChopper. As of this month, you can get schooled for $199,900.
