A winding driveway leads to this 1.5-story tan brick home on Flat Mountain, perched on a hillside with vistas of surrounding farms and distant mountains. The open floor plan, with flowing living, kitchen and dining areas, lends itself to relaxed living. The master suite and two additional bedrooms are on the main level, and a fourth bedroom, half-bath and multipurpose room are upstairs.
An attractive door on the front porch opens to an entry hall, and immediately beyond to the spacious great room. The living room has hardwood flooring, recessed lighting and a ceiling fan. French doors open to a patio overlooking the back yard.
The living and kitchen areas are divided by a 10-foot island with an eat-at counter. The cabinets are oak and the counters are laminate, with a double stainless-steel sink in the island. The Kenmore Elite appliances include a refrigerator with a freezer drawer, a countertop range with a hooded vent, a wall oven, microwave, and dishwasher. The kitchen has recessed lighting and a tiled floor, and the pantry has handy pull-out drawers. In addition to the seating at the island, the kitchen has a breakfast nook and the great room incorporates a more formal dining area.
The master suite includes a walk-in closet, and the bath has a jetted soaking tub, a separate shower, and an oak vanity with two cultured marble sinks. Bedrooms two and three, on the opposite side of the great room, are similar in size and they have oak floors, ceiling fans and plenty of closet space. They share a hallway bath with shower-tub and a pedestal sink.
Also on the main level are a laundry room with a utility sink (appliances are not included) and a half-bath.
The upstairs loft includes a large sitting area that could serve as a family room, office, play area or studio. There is a fourth bedroom with a skylight, and a half-bath.
The full basement is accessed via the attached double garage. This large, impressive space is essentially a utility, storage and workshop area with plenty of extra room for lawn equipment and even a workout area.
The 3.73-acre property lends itself well to gardening, pets and outdoor activities. The mountaintop location is private without being isolated. The charming town of Union is an easy 20-minute drive to the south, and historic Lewisburg, voted the Coolest Small Town in America, is only 25 minutes away, with fine dining, shopping, an 8-screen cinema and a lively arts scene with concerts and live theatre. Annual events include the State Fair of West Virginia, two food-themed street festivals, a literary festival and Monroe County’s Farmer’s Day.
The Greenbrier, in nearby White Sulphur Springs, is one of the world’s top luxury resorts. The hotel’s endless offerings include multiple golf courses, a spa, a tennis complex, a casino, boutiques and a dozen restaurants.
The Greenbrier River draws anglers and kayakers, and the 75-mile long Greenbrier River Trail is popular with hikers and bicyclists. Snowshoe Ski Resort, the largest ski complex in the Mid-Atlantic States, is a scenic drive to the north, in Pocahontas County. In the off-seasons it offers an extensive system of mountain biking trails.
A comfortable, well-built home in a spectacular setting, this picturesque property offers privacy and access to everything that’s special about the Greenbrier Valley.
