Charming reproduction of the historic school house on California Road

This house for sale is a unique and charming reproduction of the historic school house on California Road in Morgantown, PA. Built in 1988, it boasts a beautiful exterior made of stones that were salvaged from the original school house.

The interior of the house is equally impressive, featuring a range of natural materials such as brick, wood, and slate floors. The walls are plastered with all-natural paint, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere.

The antique hardware throughout the house adds to the historical feel, while modern amenities like a Vermont Castings stove provide comfort and charm.

Overall, this one-of-a-kind home on .88 acres is sure to impress those who appreciate history, natural beauty, and a healthy lifestyle.
