As la rentrée approaches, we have picked a trio of great former schools that have been converted into beautiful individual homes. Offering wonderfully tall ceilings, large windows, kerb appeal and often some great original features they could be a fun way to go back to the classroom…
In the Vienne, this wonderful four-bedroom property is a great price. Offering lots of space, a great kitchen, large bathrooms, and a large living room it makes a lovely family home. It’s 50km from Limoges and has an attic space ripe for conversion.
Not so obviously a former school from the outside, this lovely detached stone building comes with eight bedrooms and the most amazing open-plan living space with arched ceilings. It’s located in the most popular part of Brittany and has scope for renovation – perhaps for paying guests?
This charming period building offers so much scope! It has two former classrooms of 50 sqm each – Could it be a yoga retreat? Workshop? Art gallery? Chambre d’hote? – the options are varied in this peaceful rural location and a large garden in the Haute-Vienne. Comes with four bedrooms but could be more.
