Other/See Remarks - Callicoon, NY
Here's your chance to own a piece of history: The 1908 School has been an architectural anchor in Callicoon for over a century. Originally a school for generations of local residents, the building has also served as a dress factory and a piano-repair facility. The current long-term owners are artists/builders who have made many functional and aesthetic improvements over the years, so in addition to vast, soaring spaces with lots of light, you'll find a 3-bedroom, 2-bath apartment with modern amenities for year-round living.

It's all about light and space -- great for art and/or yoga studios, or workshops of any kind. On the first floor, a grand, oak-trimmed entry with historic doors, wainscoting, light fixtures and tin ceiling leads to the residential apartment, beautifully created by the restoration craftsman owner. The kitchen features stainless appliances, tile counters, custom cabinetry, and more of that southern-exposure light -- which also illuminates the living/dining areas. Three bedrooms, a den, and two modern, tiled bathrooms complete the living space on that side. Across the center hall you'll find a 23' x 21' artist's studio with high ceilings, big windows, track lighting and a 14' x 8' annex. Behind that, a 36' x 29' room currently used for storage -- could be a family room, another studio, etc. Throughout the building, original details such as fine woodwork, stained glass, wainscoting, and warm radiators are reminders of t
