Eye-catching and ideally located on the heavily-traveled main highway to the 11,000-acre Greenbrier resort and Sporting Club, this charming, solidly-built office space benefits from a contractor-owner’s appreciation for high-quality design and construction materials. Finished with Hardie board fiber cement siding, which resists weather, wear, fire and pests, and Galvalume metal roofing coated with Kynar resin, an aluminum and zinc product with a baked paint finish, the building’s exterior is appealing, durable and relatively maintenance-free.
A covered front porch with copper guttering leads to the office’s spectacular entrance hall/reception area, where twig rail balconies on the second level overlook the lofty 2-story space. To the left, a large conference room/office features a fireplace of local Monroe County stone, and heart pine flooring. Reclaimed wide plank wood flooring is used throughout the building, preserving and recycling materials from weathered barns and other rural structures that have been re-milled and refinished.
Seven other office spaces are on the first level, and some feature decorative timbers and recessed lighting. Most noteworthy is a log cabin office on the west end of the building. This spacious and airy room has a gas fireplace with a stacked stone chimney and a wood mantel, an elk antler chandelier, and a high ceiling with recessed lighting. This portion of the building has a cedar shake roof.
The first level also includes a kitchenette with Kitchen Craft cabinetry, granite counters, a deep stainless steel sink, and a small Frigidaire refrigerator. There are 3 half-baths with Kohler fixtures, and a storage room.
The second level is accessed by an oak staircase with a landing. This level is a large, open-plan loft with a pitched ceiling. The room has wall-to-wall carpeting, four ceiling fans, and recessed lighting.
Both levels of the building are wired for sound.
Heating and air conditioning is provided by two systems: a Carrier heat pump, and a backup system using forced air gas heat. Double-glazed Jeld Wen windows add to energy efficiency. Two brand new furnaces were installed in early 2018. Emergency power is provided a Briggs and Stratton standby generator. Water and sewer service is furnished by the City of White Sulphur Springs.
A large gravel parking area is located at the building’s rear entrance.
The office building’s location, on U.S. 60 near the I-64 Hart’s Run interchange, takes advantage of traffic coming and going from The Greenbrier and the city of White Sulphur Springs, and traffic to and from nearby Lewisburg, the Greenbrier County seat and commercial center. A tourist destination, the region not only has the historic, world-famous Greenbrier, but is also home to the State Fair of West Virginia, the Greenbrier Valley Theatre, which is West Virginia’s official state theatre, Lewisburg’s Carnegie Hall, a performance and arts center, and the 75-mile long Greenbrier River Trail. The region also serves as a gateway for visitors heading to Snowshoe Mountain Resort, the largest winter ski complex in the Eastern United States.
A visually appealing, solidly-built, ideally-located commercial property, Sterling Commons could be just the right space for your business.
