This three-bedroom condo for sale in Somerville is here to teach you a lesson about the beauty of adaptive reuse. The home was carved out of the 1898 Carr Schoolhouse on Atherton Street, nixing desks and chalkboards for stately furniture and elegant accents. The result is a stunning space that balances historical features and contemporary flair.

A grand double staircase anchors the abode, leading to dining room, kitchen, and living room. Its century-old craftsmanship is accentuated by huge arched windows, 12-foot ceilings, and original wood floors. As for more modern updates, there’s a stone bathroom with a towel warmer, another spa-like bathroom with heated floors and a rain shower, as well as stylish pendant lights and built-ins throughout.

Though there’s plenty of space to spread out in the condo’s 2,852 square feet, the staircase’s landings allow enough room for an armchair or two, making them the perfect spot to hit the books.
