At $44 per square foot, this five bedroom, six bathroom converted mansion is a relatively affordable path to luxury. It’s $699,000 for a historic school house and 1.64-acre lot turned into a 15,880-square-foot megahome.

Located in Latah, Washington, the converted school comes with a four-car garage and commercially zoned space. Since first being sold in 1999 for $35,000, the historic school house has come a long way.

“This historic schoolhouse has been immaculately renovated and converted into a home,” the listing said. “This characteristic property sits on 1.43 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds which offer an unobstructed view of the Palouse rolling hills. Over 8,700 square feet of spacious living, 12-foot-high ceilings, 5-foot-wide staircase of ebony finished fir, corbeled arches throughout the home, original fir floors and perfectly appointed kitchen which opens up to formal dining and living.

“This rare find features five bedrooms, six bathrooms, two large family rooms which were originally classrooms and several additional bonus rooms. French doors open to the attached gymnasium which features original solid maple flooring, a raised theater stage and an upper gallery that surrounds the gym with a view down onto the floor. Full daylight basement and shop space which includes a four car garage. Commercial zoning for your dream business venture in part of the building.”

As seen in the video above, reported that the school house is completely converted and move-in ready. One advantage of the home being a converted school is that the bedrooms are significantly larger than what many other luxury homes offer.

The home also comes with a renovated gymnasium, a unique offering for any mansion.
