Rezoned and Repurposed: 1920’s Maine school house
This 1920’s school house in Hollis Center, Maine was not only converted to a house, it was actually converted to a duplex with a mirrored floor plan.
So it has over 4,000 square feet of living space with 7 bedrooms, 2 living rooms, 2 kitchens, etc., etc.
It was actually used as a school up until the 1960’s when it was converted to a single family home. The current owners used it as a duplex with living space on one side and a home-based business on the other side.
The former school house is currently listed for for sale at $240,000.
On the one side of the duplex is a remodeled kitchen with cherry red cabinets:
The kitchen on the other side of the house is mint-green and black with vintage cabinets:
Then you have the purple-y/egg plant-ish colored doors…
And for more fun outside, you have 4-story barn/garage where you can climb up to the top and get a view of the nearby Ossipee Mountains:
Apart from the huge garage, there is also this cute little thing in the backyard…
How sweet (and odd) is that? I suppose it could be a garden shed or storage, but I don’t think you could ever get an auto in there!
Well, it’s Friday friends.
What a long two weeks it has been (a long two years, actually). It seems like the election in the US has been going on forever, and now that’s its done people are going through election-withdrawal. [I’m sure glad I write a house blog and not a political blog!]
If you’re interested in the house aspect of the presidential election, the Curbed website did an awesome feature on the homes of Mitt Romney and Barack Obama this week. It may be tough to stomach another word about the presidential candidates, but I promise you the article is a fascinating read (with tons of house pics – including the childhood homes of both candidates!) Check it out here.
Anyway, have a great weekend – and stay tuned for a very special house post tomorrow here on House Crazy.
