This 1920s Colorado Schoolhouse is Now on the Market as a Stunning Home
Colorado has a thing for turning abandoned schoolhouses into modern homes.
One of the Mile High City's newest hotels, The Slate Denver, used to be the Emily Griffith Opportunity School.
Well, the Centennial State isn't stopping there. There's another schoolhouse-turned-home on the market in Hereford, an unincorporated community in Weld County.
According to Zillow, architect John Shellette Van Bergen, known for his work with Frank Lloyd Wright, built the Hereford Schoolhouse at 67300 Circle Dr. in the 1920s.
Since then, the residence has undergone a complete renovation — it now boasts large windows, vaulted ceilings, hardwood floors, and French doors. Features like claw foot tubs and antique coal stoves help to preserve the home's historic charm.
Outside, the property covers three acres near the Pawnee National Grassland, which the listing says is "known for first-class bird watching with over 300 species in the area."
The U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service says to look for American Kestrels, Burrowing Owls, Swainson's Hawks, Long-billed Curlews, and more. You'll also find nearby hiking, camping, and target shooting.
Living in an old schoolhouse doesn't sound so bad, does it? You could for $611,000. Take a virtual tour of this historic Colorado home for sale in the gallery below.
