    1900s schoolhouse transformed into a 21st century modern home: Cool Spaces

    Why Does Garage Door Open by Itself

    This 1900s schoolhouse has been transformed into a 21st-century modern, three-bedroom masterpiece in Susquehanna Township, Pa.

    The original structure has been kept intact, including student graffiti carved into brick walls, while the interior and additions create a thoroughly modern, 2,000-square-foot home on a 1-acre corner lot.

    The kitchen features a giant island, auto-lit drawers, custom cabinetry, two sinks, stainless steel appliances and a glass-tile backsplash. Two bedrooms just off the kitchen feature tray ceilings with multi-color night lights.

    The added living room area sports 12-foot ceilings and the lighted backdrop of the original schoolhouse brick walls. The wood beam mantelpiece was created from a 26-foot beam recovered from the original school during construction. The living room also features a wet bar and a half bath. The lower level could be used as a third bedroom, fitness room or office and has private patio access, and a full bath.

    An oversized 2-car garage with custom 9 x 18 ft garage door includes built-in cabinetry, sink and storage closets.

    The home is listed for $795,000 by Garrett Rothman at RSR, Realtors, LLC.
