School is back in full swing now, so House Crazy Sarah thought it was time for another historic schoolhouse conversion!
This little cutie is located on Pleasant Corner Road, near the village of Stockholm, Wisconsin.
Stockholm was founded in 1854 by immigrants from Sweden, who named it after their country’s capital.
This former one-room schoolhouse dates back to 1867 and was in use as a school until the 1950’s.
It is currently being used as a short-term vacation rental but what a sweet country home it would make!
The 1 bedroom, 2 bathroom converted home was recently up for sale (sale pending as of date of publication), with a list price of $250,000.
The little one-room schoolhouse is deceiving because it actually has a total of 2,248 square feet with a full, finished basement.
Remarkably, the interior footprint and many original features have been preserved so if you took out all of the furnishings, it would look very much the way it did when class was in session in the 1800’s.
There is a kitchenette to the right as you come in the front door and a storage room/pantry on the left.
Although this former schoolhouse is not full of schoolhouse memorabilia like other converted schools, it still has all the original doors, floors, windows, and tin panels on the walls and ceilings.
So if the new owner wanted to throw up some blackboards, this place would instantly be transported back to its school days.
In the back corner on the main floor, there is a remodeled 3/4 bathroom with a washer/dryer combo.
Through the lime green original door are the stairs to the basement.
Much of the lower level is finished and includes a studio, a bedroom, another 3/4 bathroom a utility room, and a storage room.
Outside, there are a couple of old storage sheds and a nice deck off the back of the building.
Though surrounded by rolling fields, the property is nicely treed which makes for a private little oasis.
This former schoolhouse has been well-preserved and hopefully, the new owner will delight in its historic schoolhouse charm!
