  • Property Narrative

    Faced with local stone, with white-trimmed windows and a slate roof, this grand home sits on the crest of a low hill just south of downtown Lewisburg. Tastefully updated with an eye for fine detail, the home evokes the feeling of an English manor, with lush landscaping, stone walkways, and climbing ivy vines on trees.

    The living room, immediately off the front entry hall, features a fireplace with a polished marble hearth and a Victorian-style gas firebox. A large decorative mirror hangs over the mantel. Like most rooms, the living room has oak flooring, crown molding, and windows with louvered shutters in place of traditional window treatments.

    French doors lead from the living room to a sunroom added by the owner. This room incorporates what was an exterior stone wall with some newer matching stonework. The heated tile floor is travertine, a light-colored limestone used as a building material for over 2000 years, seen in buildings like the Roman Coliseum and Sacré-Cœur Basilica.

    The handsome kitchen is a cook’s workplace, with gas and electric ovens, plenty of counter space and room for storage, and recessed lighting. The high-end appliances include a GE Monogram refrigerator-freezer, a Dacor convection wall oven, a Dacor wall microwave, a 6-burner Dacor gas range-oven with a hooded vent, and a Bosch dishwasher. The white cabinetry is offset by attractive green Vermont marble countertops. The kitchen also has an eat-at island with storage space, a wet bar with an ice maker, and a bay window with a window seat. A nearby Dutch door opens onto a screened porch overlooking the side and back yards. This quiet spot, shaded by a large Japanese maple, makes an ideal place for enjoying morning coffee or a light meal.

    The dining room has a chair rail and a bay window with shutters. The eye-catching crystal chandelier in the room does not convey with the sale but can be purchased separately. The dining room overlooks a stone terrace that can accommodate outdoor dining.

    The office/computer room on the main floor has a large built-in desk and convenient built-in shelving and drawers. The office overlooks the back yard and opens into an attached greenhouse with storage cabinets and a sink.

    There is one bedroom suite on the main level, tucked in a quiet corner of the house. It includes a travertine tile bathroom with a marble sink, and a tub with a shower.

    Also on this level is a half-bath with an attractive porcelain sink, a vanity mirror with wall sconces, and a full-length mirror on the door.

    The second level is accessed by an oak staircase or a carpeted back staircase. Both lead to a landing large enough to accommodate a desk or serve as a reading nook or play area. Three bedrooms and two baths are on this level. The master suite has a fireplace with a marble hearth, a wood mantel, and a gas firebox similar to the one in the living room. The large tiled master bath is exceptional – it includes a steam shower, a whirlpool tub and two linen closets.

    Two other bedrooms on this floor are similar in size and connected by a passageway with closets and a shared tile bathroom with a porcelain sink and a tiled shower.

    The finished full basement includes a family room, a laundry room, a utility room, a half bath and a double garage. The family/TV room has a fireplace, built-in bookshelves, track lighting and direct access to the back yard. The laundry room has a front-loading Maytag Neptune washer and dryer, a sink, cabinets and a work counter. The garage has built-in cabinetry and includes a Roper refrigerator-freezer.

    Japanese maples, boxwoods, hostas, rhododendrons and oak leaf hydrangeas accent the exterior, and majestic old-growth hardwoods and evergreens give the nearly 3-acre yard a park-like appearance. A restored log cabin in the yard houses a generator capable of powering the house in the event of a power failure. A gazebo and a firepit enhance outdoor entertaining.

    Nearby downtown Lewisburg is nearly at the doorstep, with boutique shopping, fine dining, art galleries, live music at Carnegie Hall and year-round performances at the Greenbrier Valley Theatre. Surprisingly cosmopolitan for a town of 3800 people, Lewisburg is home to a medical school, a community college, a state-of-the-art library, two annual food festivals, and a literary festival. The State Fair of West Virginia takes place every August in nearby Fairlea. The renowned Greenbrier resort is only 10 minutes away White Sulphur Springs, and Snowshoe Mountain Ski resort, the largest winter ski complex in the Eastern U.S., is a 2-hour drive to the north.

    Charming, picturesque and comfortable, Greystone is a prominent local landmark and one of the Greenbrier Valley’s premiere homes.
