Exceptionally well-designed and spacious 4774 square foot home in scenic country setting just north of Lewisburg. Built with notable attention to detail, this home’s many extras include an outdoor grill and fireplace, fenced pastures, a private deck off the master suite, a 3-car garage, high-end appliances, wiring for surround sound throughout the house, and attractive vistas from every window.
Everything about this home suggests quality. Brick steps and a columned porch lead to a handcrafted oak front door with built-in louvered shutters. The porch faces west and overlooks a private pond, providing an excellent vantage point for watching evening sunsets.
The chandeliered entry opens into a great room with multicolor hardwood flooring and a beadboard ceiling with recessed lighting. A stone fireplace with a stone hearth and wood mantel serves as the room’s focal point. For convenience sake, the fireplace uses propane gas.
The adjacent kitchen has a tile floor, dark granite counters and a double stainless steel sink. A 12-foot long island provides workspace and seating for 6. The island has a prep sink, a built-in GE Profile microwave and a GE Profile warming drawer. The cherry cabinetry includes a pantry with pull-out drawers, a built in wineglass rack, a built-in desk and a countertop “garage” handy for storing small appliances. Kitchen drawers are self-closing. The lighting is recessed, except for the hanging lights over the island. The appliances include a GE Profile refrigerator-freezer, a Frigidaire gas range with a vented hood, and a GE Profile dishwasher. A second pantry provides extra storage. The eat-in kitchen overlooks the backyard and French doors provide access to the back deck/porch. For more formal occasions there is a dining room with a chandelier.
The master suite is on the main level. The bedroom has cherry flooring, recessed lighting and a ceiling fan, and opens to a private deck overlooking the woods and pastureland. The master suite includes a dressing area with a large walk-in closet. The master bath has a tile floor, a jetted soaking tub, a shower with massaging jets, and a vanity with double sinks.
Also on the main level are a half-bath with a porcelain sink and antique vanity, a large coat closet, and a laundry room. The laundry has built-in cabinetry, a tile counter and a stainless steel utility sink. A front-loading Maytag washer and dryer convey with the sale.
Three bedrooms are located on the second level, which is accessed by a wide staircase. Bedroom 1 has dormer windows, a large closet, wide plank flooring and a ceiling fan. Bedroom 2 has similar features. Bedroom 3 is exceptionally large, with four windows overlooking the back yard, a gas fireplace, a large closet and several intriguing nooks. A walk-in attic can be accessed from this bedroom. The bedrooms share a bath with a tile floor, a vanity with two porcelain sinks, a tub-shower, a clothes hamper, and a ceiling fan.
There is an upstairs office area with wiring for Internet, and an extra half-bath with a pedestal sink. A large bonus room with two skylights is over the garage. This area makes an ideal playroom, studio, or guest apartment. It has a large picture window, a freestanding gas fireplace with protective glass that permits viewing from various sides, a counter with a sink, and a small GE refrigerator.
Attention to detail is evident in the use of high quality solid doors and crown molding throughout the home. The house has been wired for sound and is ready for a audio system to be added.
The finished garage is attached and has two large bays and a smaller one, which can be used for storage or lawn equipment. There is also a secure storage room in the garage.
The brick and wood exterior has a clean, tidy appearance, and long-lasting, heavy-duty architectural shingles. The landscaping includes ornamental grasses, hostas, smoke bushes and a blue spruce tree, which need little maintenance. A back porch overlooks the yard, pasture and woods, and a built-in outdoor grill and fireplace add to the possibilities for entertaining.
Bear Claw Estates is just off Benedict Lane, a few miles north of downtown Lewisburg. The location is “out in the country”, but close enough that shopping and services are nearby. This small community of attractive homes is surrounded by rolling farmland and scenic vistas and is an excellent spot for bird watchers and nature lovers.
Bear Claw Estates is only 5 minutes from Interstate 64, which spans the county east-to-west. It’s a relatively quick drive to Lewisburg on U.S. 219, and the Greenbrier resort in White Sulphur Springs via the Interstate.
Often described as an ideal small town, Lewisburg offers fine dining, boutique shops, a golf course, an 8-screen cinema, and a lively arts scene. Annual events include the State Fair of West Virginia, two food-themed street festivals and a literary festival. The Greenbrier Valley Theatre, West Virginia’s official state theatre, offers year-round performances, and well-known artists appear in concert at Carnegie Hall. The town is home to the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine, and a campus of New River Community and Technical College.
The Greenbrier, which occupies 10,000 acres, is one of the world’s top luxury resorts. The hotel’s offerings include multiple golf courses, a spa, a tennis complex, a casino, high-end shopping, an art colony and 10 restaurants. The resort hosts the annual Greenbrier Classic, a PGA tour event, and houses a summer training facility for the NFL’s New Orleans Saints.
The Greenbrier River draws anglers and kayakers, and the 75-mile long Greenbrier River Trail paralleling the river is popular with hikers and bicyclists. Snowshoe Ski Resort, a scenic 90-minute drive to the north, is the largest ski complex in the Mid-Atlantic States, and has an extensive system of mountain biking trails available in the off-seasons.
An exceptionally high-quality home in an interesting area with lots to do, Bear’s Den is an ideal corner of Almost Heaven.
