Imagine owning a dwelling that had:
— More than 50 rooms.
— Eight to 10 bathrooms.
— A hillside location.
— A full kitchen and dining space for 60 to 80 guests at a time.
— Two gymnasiums.
— A library.
— Its own stage.
— Outdoor tennis courts, basketball courts and acres of fields.
It’s enough to invoke your “Downton Abbey” fantasies, isn’t it?
I’m talking about my elementary school in upstate New York … or at least the school as I remember it. I haven’t been back in more than 20 years, so my memory may not be perfect and I’m guessing the school has changed at least a little since then.
Owning an elementary school may seem ridiculous, but according to V over at Millennial Life Crisis, abandoned elementary schools dot the highways of British Columbia, and someone turned one of them into a house for the “low, low price of $259,000.”
Of course, my elementary school is still in use, and it’s attached to the high school, but I’m sure you could work that out with the real estate agent.
