WHAT IT’S LIKE LIVING INSIDE THIS OLD HAMILTON HIGH SCHOOL FOR LESS THAN 600K


Before thinking about leaving for a less expensive city, you might want to consider checking this place in Hamilton. Located inside an old high school!


Originally built in 1929, the former Dundas District High School at 397 King Street West was

converted for residential use by the award-winning Valvasori Brothers in 2013.


You'll find it nestled at the foot of the Niagara Escarpment within walking distance of literal

waterfalls and some of Ontario's most-acclaimed nature trails.


Loft sizes range from 793 to 2,374 square feet and is currently on sale for just $549,000 – what a steal! Amenities are also clearly a draw: The place has its own gym, a large party room, and a sprawling rooftop terrace with views over the entire Dundas Valley.




It's a nicely-converted space for someone who values history, access to nature, high-end

appliances, European cabinets with granite countertops, sunscreen window shades, and radiant in-floor heat. The suite was also designed with an open concept to allow in as much natural light as possible.
