Grassy Meadows – Log Home & 46 Acres
228 Bills Lane
Grassy Meadows, WV 24943

Attractive 4-bedroom, 3-bath log home, fully furnished, with pool and hot tub, on 46 pristine acres near Lewisburg, West Virginia.

Country roads will take you home to this beautifully maintained 2300 square-foot log home with full basement. Located in a quiet, private wooded setting only 5 minutes from I-64, the furnished cabin has been a family vacation retreat, but would serve just as well as a comfortable year-round residence. The fabled Greenbrier resort is a half-hour away, and historic Lewisburg only 20 minutes.

A country lane leads to a circular drive and this well-sited log home, with views through the treetops to Keeney’s Knob (elevation 3921 feet). The one-story home has a front porch that’s perfect for enjoying the changing seasons, and wooded back yard that serves as a private wildlife preserve. The cabin has a metal roof with decorative snow guards. The landscaping includes rhododendrons, hostas, hydrangeas, crepe myrtles, pampas grass, a pear tree and white pines. Several seasonal creeks flow through the 46-acre property, which has 7 open acres and 39 wooded.

The entry opens into a great room, with a coat closet near the front door. The living area has a stone fireplace with gas logs, which could be reconfigured with a woodstove. High quality laminate gives the appearance of dark oak flooring and matches the beamed ceiling.

Just beyond the living area, the kitchen has a 12-foot island that seats six. A Kenmore countertop range is built-into the island, and there’s plenty of storage space below. The attractive beadboard cabinetry includes pull-out shelving, and is offset by Formica countertops, a built-in oven and microwave, and a stainless steel double sink. There is a Kenmore refrigerator-freezer, and a large storage pantry. Sliding glass doors connect the great room with a multi-level deck, and a hot tub.

Just beyond the great room is a dining room, which has a lantern chandelier and a picture window overlooking the front yard. A large hutch in the dining room conveys with the property.

Just beyond the dining room, a small private office also overlooks the front yard and mountains. A stained glass window catches the sun and casts colorful patterns. This room has wall-to-wall carpeting and bookcases.

A private bedroom and bath are located in this wing. The bedroom has wall-to-wall carpeting and a large closet, and the bath has a shower-tub combo, and a vanity with a shell-design basin.

A single-car garage with a poured concrete floor and overhead storage is located at this end of the house.

Three other bedrooms are in the opposite wing. The master suite has wall-to-wall carpeting, a walk-in closet, and a bath with shower. The second bedroom has wall-to-wall carpeting and a closet with folding louvered doors. The third bedroom has wallpaper, plush carpeting, and a closet with louvered doors. These two bedrooms share a bath with a large mirror, a tile floor, a shower-tub combo and a linen closet.

Conveniently, the laundry room is in this wing. It has a Frigidaire washer and dryer, and storage cabinets.

Interior stairs lead to the basement. The spacious, dry basement has concrete block walls and a poured concrete floor. It serves as a utility area, and has plenty of space for storing lawn maintenance equipment and yard furniture. The basement is large enough that a finished recreation room or workout room could be added. A garage door opens directly onto the driveway.

The above-ground pool is in the side yard. The pool is 25 feet in diameter and surrounded by wood decking. The hot tub is tucked in a more private location in the back yard, built into multi-level decking.

The woods rise gently beyond the house, creating a magical forest setting with a mixture of old-growth hardwood trees. The gradual slope of the land and the generous acreage assure privacy.

Located in Grassy Meadows, on the western end of Greenbrier County, the property is only 4 miles from Interstate 64, which spans the county east-to-west. It’s a relatively quick drive to the county seat, Lewisburg, and the Greenbrier resort in White Sulphur Springs.

  • THE FOREST

    The 46.69 acre forest has been professionally managed for over 25 years and has one of the few remaining pockets of old growth timber left standing in West Virginia. The deep shade offered by the spreading crowns of the large oak and hickory trees makes for a cool and inviting environment in which to enjoy a quiet walk.

    Beechnuts, Hickory nuts, sweet White Oak and Red Oak Acorns provide a sustainable food source for the squirrels, chipmunks, whitetail deer and wild turkey that live in abundance in the forest. The intermittent stream provides a water source for the wildlife.

    Many species of songbirds and woodpeckers that thrive in the special habitat that large older trees provide make their home in this special forest environ. It is exciting to see and hear the large and very vocal Pileated Woodpecker, with its bright red crest dressed in a black and white tuxedo, sweep through the tall canopy in search of a morning snack. A large owl nests here every year and provides lots of night-time and early-morning entertainment.

    A professional forester has appraised the timber and found there to be 2,365 very outstanding trees with a ready market value.
