A circular driveway leads to this 2-story Georgian home bordered by a creek and a wooded hillside. Designed for indoor and outdoor living, the 4-bedroom, 3.5-bath home has a state-of-the-art kitchen and a large patio for entertaining. Set on 3.24 picturesque acres with a beautifully landscaped yard, there’s plenty of room for pets, gardening and outdoor activities, and The Greenbrier is nearby.
The setting gives this lovely home the feeling of a country estate. Nestled in a pristine glen, the home is sited in the middle of the property, with an attractive approach, a circular driveway and a large, private back yard.
The entrance hall provides a first look at the attractive hardwood flooring, which varies in style and color from room to room. The spacious living room on the right features a stone fireplace with a wood mantel and a built-in wood storage cubby. The dining room on the left has wide plank flooring, a decorative chandelier, and a fireplace with a slate hearth.
The kitchen has granite counters, a porcelain farmhouse sink, an eat-at island with a stainless steel sink, a built-in desk, and a breakfast nook overlooking the patio and back yard.

The spacious yard, bordered by a small creek on the right and a wooded hillside on the left, includes a garden shed.
Proximity to the 11,000-acre Greenbrier resort, only 5 minutes away, is one of the home’s many advantages. Big Draft Road continues to Oakhurst Links, the oldest golf club in America. This historic 1884 course was purchased by the resort in 2012 and incorporated in the Greenbrier Sporting Club. A new golf course is presently in the works, designed by golf legends Jack Nicklaus, Lee Trevino, Arnold Palmer and Gary Player. This mountain course will feature spectacular vistas and dramatic changes in elevation and it will serve as the centerpiece of Oakhurst, the Sporting Club’s newest residential development.
Other points of interest in the area include the charming town of Lewisburg, 20 minutes away. Lewisburg is known for its shopping, fine dining and lively arts scene. Also nearby are the annual State Fair of West Virginia in Fairlea, the 75-mile long Greenbrier River Trail, and Snowshoe, the largest ski resort in the Mid-Atlantic States, an hour-and-a-half drive on scenic country roads.
