Always wanted an old schoolhouse! Circa 1850. Over an acre in New Hampshire. $150,000

April 18, 2024

I’ve always wanted an old schoolhouse! The school was built in 1850. It is located on 1.40 acres in Alton, New Hampshire. The school would make a nice small residential home or a short term rental. There are hardwood floors and wainscoting. Doesn’t look like there is any indoor plumbing. One bedroom and 720 square feet. $150,000

This charming 1850’s schoolhouse has so many possibilities. The property has a lot of history but is ready to start a new chapter. Located on a corner lot in a very rural section of Alton and sited on 1.4 +/- acres, with partial state approved 2 bedroom septic installed. The structure is 30′ x 24′ and has 5 rooms on the main level, and an attic space that could be expanded. Here is an opportunity to design your own school house to your taste. ******OPEN HOUSE****Sunday 12 – 2:00 April 21st *******
