When someone tells you that it seems like you live at school, it's never a compliment. Except for this one time, I suppose. Built in 1908, Queen Anne High School closed its doors in 1981 and became an official City of Seattle landmark. It also became a collection of apartments and, later on, high-end condos. One of the units recently hit the market with an asking price of $439,950, posing the question, "Should you go back to school?"
The uniqueness of living in a school might wear off eventually but the uniqueness of the two-level units might take a bit longer. Upstairs, a master retreat with a walk-in closet and full bath. Downstairs, the open chef's kitchen is your new classroom. That monstrous apple currently placed on the counter is a wise investment. Always keep the teacher/chef happy.
The 1-BR unit also features new carpet, new hardwood floors and a private patio. It's private school luxury without all the stuffy uniforms and rules. Unless you're into all of that.
