Fall means going back to school for many. However, for some this fall might mean going home to a converted schoolhouse. From sophisticated urban and suburban condos carved out of old school buildings to rustic and rural single family homes fashioned from historic one room schoolhouses, these conversions are at the top of their class. Delhi, N.Y. Three hours north of Manhattan, this little red former schoolhouse charmer, encircled by mature trees and old stacked stone walls, sits on a quiet country road near the itty bitty village of Delhi, NY. With an asking price of $64,900, the rural property is perfect for a budget conscious city dweller looking for an affordable weekend getaway in the scenic and historic Catskills mountains in Upstate New York.
