What would you do with this temptingly priced Upstate schoolhouse for sale? It’s in New Baltimore, a lovely, historic riverfront hamlet that we’ve written about before and we really like. Public School No. 1 doesn’t offer acreage or country views, but it does offer lots of space—5,568 square feet to be exact, zoned residential, commercial and mixed use. It’s not a house now–it’s currently being used as a studio and exhibition space by a local artist—so making it one would require some investment. (I wish I could get some photos of the bathrooms. Do they have teeny-tiny elementary school toilets?)
I think it would make a great group buy among friends. We could have our little country offices/ studios, and at lunch, take a little walk to the Hudson or the nearby nature preserve. What a lovely way to live/work.

First, open house alert! Heartland Realty will be showing this pretty New Baltimore farmhouse tomorrow, July 9, from 11-2 pm.
I think this listing has a lot to offer. The main building is a spacious 1890 Center Hall Colonial revival, with four bedrooms (including one with a fireplace), two baths, and well-preserved details throughout. The kitchen looks a little tight, but the relatively roomy formal dining room and living room balance that out, and they would give you space to open the kitchen up. (Sadly, the MLS doesn’t include a floor plan.) The park-like property comes with a pond and a nice 3.4 acres, a large barn and a 2 car garage. The lot across the street is also for sale, which would give you an additional 2.8 acres. The house is in town, but it’s just down the road from the Hannacroix Creek Nature Preserve, which boasts “113 acres, waterfalls, scenic vistas and hiking trails.” While some of the updates are a little too country kitsch for my tastes, the home is in “excellent” condition. I think there are a lot of ways to make this one your own, but there wouldn’t be any urgency to start renovating.
New Baltimore is a classic Hudson riverfront town, with about 3,400 residents and a ton of well-preserved, historically protected nineteenth-century homes. As it’s farther north and less commercially developed than Saugerties and Kingston’s Roundout area, it’s cheaper, too, but it has all the Hudson views and wild country access you could wish for.
