If you’re looking for a project to sink your teeth into, this Swedish fixer-upper could be just the ticket.

Built in 1908, the Vanstad property was a working school for over 100 years before its recent retirement. Now it’s looking for a new lease of life as a home or live/work space.

It’ll need some serious elbow grease to turn it from a working building into a dwelling but it has bags of potential.

On the ground floor are two large classrooms that feature double-height ceilings and extra tall windows. A large hallway – that branches off to the kitchen, cloakroom and staff room – separates the two spaces.

Go up the worn timber staircase and there’s a large attic ready for conversion into a master bedroom suite or large living room.

But wait, there’s more. At the rear of the main school building is a detached gymnasium, complete with climbing apparatus and basketball nets. It would be ideal as a studio or even a self-contained apartment…

The school is on the market via Lansfast starting at 750,000 SEK.
