Public School Building For Sale
Old Public School Building on 5 City Lots that’s only 2 hours and 50 minutes from Denver, on the Nebraska/Colorado border! This is an EXCELLENT INVESTMENT PROPERTY! The building has been renovated into a house + 1 apartment with lots of spare rooms for businesses or additional apartments to be added. The 16,000 square foot building is surrounded by sturdy fencing and mature trees including an orchard that produces plums, peaches, gooseberries, raspberries, and cherries. A 20’ pergola greets guests at one of the main entrances to the building. The green areas and graveled spaces surrounding the school are an idyllic space for a family with young children or for a business that requires a welcoming outdoor entrance space. The property is both private and well-connected because it sits on 5 city lots at the edge of the small town of Brule which is located along I-80. The owners are asking $150,000 OBO.
A foyer opens up into the living space on the bottom level which includes a single family dwelling space of approximately 3000 square feet. This area of the school building, which is separated from the rest of the building by a key-code lock, includes 4 furnished bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, one with a Jacuzzi. The kitchen is excellent for large gatherings of family or friends and includes a table with bench seating for 12-16 people. In the middle of it all is a comfortable, fully furnished family room. A little bit of creativity could convert this bottom level into a hotel with private rooms, one with an en suite bathroom and a shared living space/kitchen. Wood stoves have been installed to heat the living areas in the basement.
Also on the bottom level are two large separate rooms with a private entrance that could be converted into a private apartment.
Upstairs from the bottom-level family room is a dramatic living room with a uniquely slanted entry-way that leads into a colorful space that’s perfect for large gatherings (think football parties and Christmas gatherings). A door leads out onto an unfinished deck that could easily be made into a Four Seasons Room. The furnishings in the living room, along with a 72” TV mounted to the wall on second floor are included with the building.
Also on the second floor is one fully-furnished apartment that can be used as a vacation rental or just as a fun space for the extended family to stay when they come to visit. The vacation rental descriptions and photos are available for the new owners to rent this apartment on AirBnB. It’s a simple turn-key business available for interested parties. The apartment has space to sleep up to 8 people. Because the school is located so close to Lake McConaughy, a popular tourist destination in the area, the apartment can rent for between $60-$150/night depending on the season (with the high-season in the summer months).
On the second floor, there are three other 30'x20' rooms that could be converted into apartments or space for other types of business/recreational activities.
On the third floor, there are several other different rooms ranging from small (8’x16’) to very large (60’x30’). These rooms could be rented out, used for business purposes, used for storage, or just left empty. The previous owners taught martial arts and yoga classes on the third floor of the building. A room on the third floor has a mirrored wall with hardwood floors that would be perfect for a dance studio.
The old school building is brick and there are hardwood floors throughout the building. Most have been covered with carpet, but they are in excellent condition.
The old school building sits on 5 city blocks and includes plenty of fenced in spaces that have been landscaped with mature trees and shady areas. It’s a beautiful lot with plenty of privacy at the edge of the small town of Brule. Brule is located just minutes from Lake McConaughy which makes it an ideal building for rental properties or other businesses related to tourism. One previous owner rented space in the building to area businesses in need of office space. The close proximity of Brule to Ogallala and Denver makes it an ideal investment property for people looking to escape from the city temporarily or full-time. I-80 is located just minutes from the building. Buses pick kids up right outside the building to take them to South Platte Public School or Ogallala Public Schools. Across the street is an outdoor basketball court. Next door is the Brule Activity Center (operated by the community of Brule) with rentable space for large activities at the indoor basketball court. There is also a fitness center next door. For more information, contact Jennifer Shipp at firstname.lastname@example.org.
