Amidst the picturesque Sierra Mountain Range, Rocky Roost Lakefront is a south-facing home perched on the stunning Granite boulders of the north shore. This Cedar Bark-sided home traces its history back to the Gatsby era of the Brockway Springs Hotel, which was located on the western part of Brockway Point. At the end of a silent cul-de-sac, the Rocky Roost compound sits behind large iron gates on one and a half acres. The compound includes a main residence, game room, upper cottage and lower lakeview apartment. With 120 feet of lake frontage, the property faces the majestic south and west shorelines, with Aspens and large Pines framing the home. Rocky Roost Lakefront is a fabulously unique home. Situated among natural Granite boulders, sprawling Pine trees and glorious turquoise waters Rocky Roost is truly an exceptional property. The main house maintains a classic Old Tahoe charm with elements of the surrounding exterior incorporated into the main frame. Don't be surprised to see a granite stone cropping out from the wall in the bathroom or a huge Jeffrey Pine peeking through the middle of the deck! The gorgeous grounds, multiple decks and staircase down to the large dock for sunbathing make this home one-of-a-kind. You are also merely a two minute walk to Speedboat Beach, a small, sandy white beach affectionately know by locals as "Buck's Beach." Summer has never been so fun. Swim out to the rocks peeking up from the emerald waters or stand in between the crevices to catch crawdads all day or simply relax and read a book under the shade of the top deck's canopy. The main house has four bedrooms, a living room and family room for your enjoyment. There is also a game cottage with bath just steps away with a ping pong table and bathroom. Across the yard from the main house is a cottage with a kitchen and bathroom, perfect for a couple to retire early. Down the steps is another cottage with a small sitting area, bathroom and bed. This room is great for older kids. In the winter, the views boast snowy wonderland. But either winter or summer, the privacy of the grounds creates an estate-like surrounding where you can feel totally focused on your very own retreat.
