Property Description
Own a designated Mississippi Landmark in Bay Saint Louis, just 50 minutes from New Orleans! Stoutly built as a Craftsman-style elementary school in 1913, then renovated and fortified over the past twenty years, Webb Schoolhouse possesses a rare ”wow” factor that delights every visitor. Upstairs, the two original schoolrooms have been repurposed as spacious loft-style homes – each with full bathrooms and kitchens, HVAC systems and laundry hookups. Both sides have private entrances opening to the expansive veranda and the oak-shaded back deck. 12′ ceilings and banks of windows capture the glorious coast light in each side. The larger owner’s side includes a library with gas fireplace, a magical ”ship’s cabin” loft bedroom and an additional half-bath. The spacious guest side has a great history as a 5-star vacation rental. While Webb School is currently being used as single family home, it can be switched back to two roomy dwellings simply by locking the connecting doors. But that’s not all! Downstairs you’ll find a warm and lovely large office/studio space with another half bath. With its own separate entrances, it’s perfect for those working from home. The schoolhouse was constructed from old growth heart pine that’s now extinct – most of the floors, walls and ceilings are made from 1” thick interlocking tongue and groove. Even the custom cabinets in one of the kitchens are crafted from reclaimed heart-pine. Structural reinforcements to storm-harden this already solid building were made after Katrina (ask for details). The home’s sprawling park-like grounds cover more than 2/3 of an acre and include azaleas, cypress and magnolia trees and three majestic, registered Live Oaks. Situated just a stone’s throw from the Old Town commercial district and the Amtrak Depot and only two blocks from the beach, the house sits on high ground, with X zone flood insurance. Webb Schoolhouse has been featured in HGTV’s ”You Live in What?” and several authors have been inspired by this literary retreat in the past 20 years. The current owner wrote ”Under Surge, Under Siege” here, published by University Press of Mississippi and winner of the Eudora Welty Book Prize in 2010. Many have said that Webb School reminds them of a grand-scale tree house. Others talk about lingering ”kid energy” that makes the heart feel lighter. Still others say their spirits are buoyed by all the light the building catches. But everyone agrees that Webb School is a place they’ll never forget. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to own it.
