Weatherby Lake Home for Sale

A rare opportunity to own a piece of local history! This former one-room schoolhouse, one of an estimated 75 in Platte County during the 19th century, has recently been made available to the public. Rocky Point Schoolhouse, tucked away on Lot #1 of Weatherby Lake, was established in 1857 - even before the 285 acre lake was built.

The original schoolhouse has been transformed into a sophisticated 2nd tier - 4 bedroom/3.5 bath private lake home, boasting of ±3700 square feet of living space on 2.5 levels.

Maintaining the integrity of the original school design, generous use of windows on the north facing formal living room wall ensures the room is fresh and inviting. Sitting room/office access from living room and foyer. Private main level master bedroom - accessible from living room. Two bedrooms and full bath conveniently located on second floor of main schoolhouse structure.

The tastefully remodeled kitchen is enclosed by windows on both sides, with french door access to the two-tiered deck on the back or access to the gardeners atrium and front flagstone courtyard. Long center island, new cabinets, granite and stainless steel appliances award this room a charm factor of 10.

The expansive great room with cathedral ceiling and stone fireplace is both stylish and family friendly. Unique and creative use of a "lighthouse feature" spiral staircase transports you from the main floor to the second floor library loft overlooking the great room and fourth bedroom/bath - ideal for guest/family privacy. The secondary spiral staircase leads you to the basement pool/game room with custom built ins and walk out to flagstone patio, perfect for dad's get-away or entertaining.

Recently remodeled, the school house's transformed personality is both enchanting and graceful. Upgrades throughout, with extensive use of wood flooring and generous use of windows, coupled with the distinctive layout makes this historic home one of a kind!
