Owner built in 2002 by skilled woodworkers, this spacious and comfortable home enjoys wraparound mountain scenery and ready proximity to the Greenbrier River and Greenbrier River Trail. Solidly constructed and lovingly maintained, its features include custom cabinetry, radiant heat floors, full kitchens and laundry rooms on two levels, a whole-house backup generator and spring-fed water.
Sited on a hillside overlooking the farm, the home has shiplap siding of western pine and a shingled roof. A wraparound porch on the main level and a balcony on the upper level provide spectacular views of the surrounding countryside.
Just beyond the entryway, a wall in the great room showcases an eye-catching decorative wood inlay. The living area features handcrafted wainscoting and a ceiling fan, and flows seamlessly into a dining area with a stained-glass chandelier.
Just beyond the dining area, the kitchen has handcrafted hickory cabinets, a tiled backsplash, laminate counters and a double stainless-steel sink. A clever touch is a lower cabinet that conceals a pop-up shelf, enabling the cook to stow a large appliance like a mixer or a crockpot when it isn’t in use but leave it plugged in. Kenmore appliances include a gas range, an electric wall oven, a refrigerator with a freezer drawer, and a dishwasher. Just around the corner there’s a walk-in pantry with shelves.
Two bedroom suites are on the main level. The master suite has a ceiling fan and two closets. The master bath has an air-jet Jacuzzi tub, a tiled walk-in shower and an oak vanity with two composite marble sinks. The master suite is adjacent to a private office that exits to the porch. A tiled laundry room connects the office with the kitchen.
The second bedroom suite has wainscoting and a ceiling fan, and built-in storage. This bath has a tiled shower and a pedestal sink.
The finished lower level includes a living area, a kitchen, two bedrooms, a bath, a laundry and a utility room.
The living area on this level has a hookup for a woodstove, and a hearth of local stone. The kitchen area has oak cabinetry, laminate countertops and a double stainless-steel sink. There is a GE side-by-side refrigerator-freezer and a GE electric range. The laundry includes a GE washer and a Maytag dryer.
Both lower level bedrooms have reclaimed wormy chestnut flooring with radiant heat, handcrafted wormy chestnut doors, wainscoting crafted from reclaimed wood, and ceiling fans. The bedrooms share a full-bath with a tiled shower-tub and a composite marble sink.
The utility room monitors the spring-fed water system. There are also several storage closets on the lower level.
The attic is accessed by a staircase on the main level. This large space isn’t finished but it could be readily converted into another bedroom, a family or recreation room, or a studio. A bonus feature is a door opening from the attic to a balcony affording a stunning birds-eye view of the farm and the surrounding mountain scenery.
Because the home is sited on a hillside, the two-vehicle garage is on the main level, in the rear. The garage has built-in shelves. A full-house backup generator is included.
Nearby, just past a stone retaining wall, a large farm shed has two open bays for farm equipment, and an enclosed area housing the wood-fired furnace that circulates the hot-water heating the home.
The lower two-thirds of the property is open pasture. Just behind the home, the upper third is mixed hardwood forest.
A unique, beautifully designed home in a spectacular setting, this property captures everything that’s special about West Virginia living.
