Roosevelt School transformation! Look inside! Circa 1921 in KS. $124,900

February 10, 2019

Former Roosevelt Elementary School was transformed into a personal residence 13 years ago. Built in 1921. Located on .47 acres in Chanute, Kansas. I like how they used the chalkboards in the home. In the basement of the home they kept the small gym with old basketball goals. The electric and plumbing have been updated. The structure has a new roof. Three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 5,031 square feet. $124,900

From the Zillow listing:


What was once an elementary school, is now turned into a family home. Renovated approximately 13 years ago, this 5,031 sq.ft. house, built in 1921, was given a second chance and turned into a home. As you walk in the front door, you will see a wooden staircase that leads up to a open hall. To the right, sits the living area and the kitchen. To the left, you will find a short hallway that takes you to a bathroom and a bedroom. The bathroom contains a claw-foot tub and a walk-in shower. From the open hallway, you will find another staircase that leads to the upper level, where there are 2 more bedrooms and another bathroom. This 3 bedroom, 2 bath house also has a basement. In this basement, there is a small gym (every kids dream). During the remodel, the electric and plumbing were replaced with new. The roof was also replaced.
