  • Property Narrative

    This spacious one-story, 4-bedroom brick home features living and family rooms plus a large basement recreation room, a breakfast nook and a formal dining room, an attached double garage and a large yard. Only a block from Washington Street, the neighborhood borders the historic district and is convenient to stores, churches, the Osteopathic Medical School and the lively downtown arts scene.

    Oversized double front doors protected by storm doors open into a chandeliered entry hall with an eye-catching slate floor and a coat closet. To the right, the living room has laminate wood flooring and a large bowed picture window that faces east, catching the morning sun.

    The kitchen has blue-gray tile flooring and white cabinetry with a storage pantry and a built-in desk. Appliances to be conveyed include a Kenmore refrigerator-freezer, a Kenmore double wall oven, a Whirlpool countertop range with a hooded vent, and a Kenmore dishwasher. The adjacent breakfast nook is finished with wainscoting and a chair rail, and it opens onto a deck overlooking the back yard, perfect for grilling out or dining al fresco. There’s also a formal dining room for larger groups and special occasions.

    This wing of the house has a carpeted study with built-in bookshelves, a half-bath, and laundry room with generous storage space, including a double closet with louvered doors. A nearby exit leads to the attached two-car garage.

    A large family room is located in the center of the home, between the kitchen and bedroom areas. This room has a wood-burning fireplace with a slate hearth and a wood mantel trimmed with dentil molding, and is flanked by bookcases. Exposed wood beams add to the room’s warmth and character. Large sliding glass doors provide a second access point to the deck.

    The large master suite is carpeted and has a ceiling fan. The master bath has a tile floor, a pedestal sink and a shower. A separate dressing area has 3 closets with louvered doors, and a dark wood vanity with a cultured marble sink.

    Bedrooms 2 and 3 are carpeted and have closets and ceiling fans. Their shared bath has a tile floor, a tub-shower, a vanity with 2 sinks, and a linen closet. Another large walk-in closet is accessed from the hallway.

    The basement is finished and carpeted, and it has sliding glass doors that open to the back yard. The basement features a large recreation room with wood wainscoting, and a brick fireplace with a wood mantel. A fourth carpeted bedroom is located on this level, as well as a full bath with a tile floor and tiled shower/tub.

    The landscaping includes easy-to-maintain boxwoods, Shasta daisies, rhododendrons and weeping cherry trees, and the backyard is bordered by evergreens. The yard is level but the front and back occupy slightly different elevations. The main floor opens to the front yard and the basement opens to the back yard.

    Formerly a manse for Lewisburg’s Old Stone Presbyterian Church, the home has been well cared for over its 40+ years. It offers the convenience of a great location and the additional benefit of a mostly one-level house plan, which is potentially accessible for the mobility impaired.

    The neighborhood is quiet and long-settled, but near the epicenter of activity in the area. Lewisburg offers interesting shopping, fine dining, live music and theatre, two annual food festivals, a literary festival, and a year-round schedule of community activities. The State Fair of West Virginia, a classic country fair with rides, exhibits, concerts and livestock competitions, takes place in nearby Fairlea every August.

    The historic Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, ten minutes away, is a 10,000-acre world-class luxury resort with restaurants and shops open to the public. The resort hosts an annual PGA tournament in July, and serves as the summer practice camp for the NFL’s New Orleans Saints.

    A spacious, comfortable home in a handy location, this former manse has both history and geography to offer.
