Coming soon....























Built in the early 1800's Stinson St.School is being turned into lofts....starting at $200,000 going up to $6oo,ooo....they will be grand and beautiful....buyers will have the option of keeping some of the original blackboards and other fixtures.They are around the corner from the mountain stairs & close to walking trails....what a wonderful lifestyle! Just look at the height of the ceilings and the stunning staircase....I can hardly wait to see them done! Meg was approached by the photographer & had a ton of photos taken on site.....she will be on some postcards they are using for advertising(kind of exciting) They are just around the corner from us and should do wonders for our real estate values!! Hope you enjoyed the tour...all the best~Chrissy~

Such a great structure. Where is this old school located. Working downtown New York, i love designing loft space, it gives such freedom as to the use of space and I love all the ols and rough materials

Wow! I think it's great when an old building can be remade into cool housing. The details are amazing!

Speechless...
But would you believe that what really caught my eye was the fact that the buyers could keep the original fixtures? And look at all those vintage papers!

I can only imagine how fabulous these are going to be. This will be great to have in your neighborhood. I hope we get to see some shots of the interiors when they are done.

Chrissy I love it when the redo these old structures for housing. I hate to see them sit when they could be put to good use. Thank goodness they didn't tear them down and put a more modern building it their place. These will be gorgeous when done I'm sure.
You're so lucky to be able to watch the progress of it all.

Dear Chrissy,
thank you very much for visiting and commenting. Happy to meet you and to discover your lovely home!
I´m fan of the JDL-style as well, but with my own twists... :)
The ´habitat´ you show up here in the pictures is really amazing. I would love to live in a loft-style appartment like that and so I´m quite curious about the final result after the works here.
All my best regards,
Marjolijn

This building is just amazing!! Would love to see it in person, and wow, how wonderful that's it's close to you. I just love seeing an old building salvaged and turned into viable living or working space. Can't wait to see more of this in progress!
blessings,
Debra
