Location: Lumberland, New York

Price: $649,000

This charming 1893 landmarked schoolhouse located on a quiet mountain road in Lumberland, New York and two miles from the Delaware River has had several lives: First as Hillside School until 1949, then as a gospel chapel for the next 50 years, and currently as a boutique inn. Carefully restored and updated, the simple, white-shingled, gabled structure with bell cupola is now up for sale—along with hand-crafted furniture custom made for the space, as well as other vintage and salvaged pieces.

The two-bedroom, 2,500-square-foot schoolhouse-turned residence features many fantastic original details including doors, stained glass, hardwood floors, slate chalkboards, 16-ft tall ceilings, and bell tower with cast iron bell. The expansive, open-plan first floor has an enormous common area with large windows, from which a rustic staircase leads to the second floor, which was added during the renovation in 2013. Have a look around.
