This beautifully maintained Cape Cod on 1.75 acres features a dramatic panorama of the Greenbrier River and Cold Knob, and takes advantage of it with 2 large decks and a balcony. The attractive gray-brown brick home with white trim blends organically with its cliff-top setting. There are 3 spacious bedrooms, 3 full baths, a generous kitchen and a finished basement in this 4073-square-foot home.
Located on Coleman Cliff in northern Greenbrier County, this appealing country property is only 20 minutes from downtown Lewisburg and readily accessible via Interstate 64, U.S. Route 219, State Road 41 and Coleman Cliff Road.
The driveway offers ample parking and was recently sealed. A basketball backboard is ready for action, and the level yard, landscaped with fruit trees, boxwoods, rose bushes and stargazer lilies, has plenty of space for gardening and outdoor activities.
A covered front porch adds to its curb appeal. The main entrance opens onto a wide staircase that divides the open-flow main level into distinct areas: a living room, a family room, a kitchen and a dining area. These spaces are tied together architecturally with attractive light-color oak flooring and trim and a chair rail. Your gaze is automatically drawn to the mountain views in back. Sliding glass doors in the kitchen and in the dining area provide access to an inviting upper deck with a hot tub. A larger deck, accessed from the basement, is below this one. Most of the panorama lies within the 900,000-acre Monongahela National Forest, so the view is largely protected.
The spacious kitchen has a tile floor and recessed lighting. Oak cabinetry and tile counters complement the flooring. A double porcelain sink in front of a window with a scenic view suggests that kitchen chores won’t be too onerous. Appliances to be conveyed include a GE Profile refrigerator-freezer, a GE island cooktop, a GE wall oven, a GE Profile microwave and a GE dishwasher. The kitchen is well-equipped for the contemporary chef with plenty of electrical outlets.
Living room features include a ceiling fan, and a propane-burning stone fireplace with a stone hearth and wood mantel, accented with dentil molding.
Also on the main level are a half-bath with a pedestal sink, a laundry room with a utility sink and large storage closet, and a mud room/storage area with a linoleum floor. The double garage has plenty of tall storage shelves that aren’t attached but convey with the property.
Three bedrooms are located on the second level. The master suite has laminate flooring, a chair rail and a ceiling fan, two walk-in closets and a balcony that offers an even more panoramic view than the two decks below. The large master bath features a decorative tile floor, a tile counter with two porcelain sinks set in an oak vanity with four mirrored medicine cabinets, a Jacuzzi tub and a separate tiled shower.
The second and third bedrooms are spacious and have wall-to-wall carpeting and plenty of closet space. There are two additional bathrooms on this level. One has a shower and a jetted tub, and a vanity with a composite sink, and the other has a shower and a vanity with a composite sink. Both have tile floors.
The finished basement is divided into four rooms, including one very large carpeted space that provides access to the lower deck. The second room has a concrete floor, a utility sink and a workbench, and a garage-type door opening into the back yard. The third room is essentially a utility and storage area with shelves. The hot water heater, furnace and the home’s built-in vacuum system are located in this room. The fourth room is a windowless “bonus” area, large enough to serve many purposes.
In addition to the attached double garage, the home has a large storage shed with a garage door, perfect for storing lawn and garden equipment and outdoor furniture when its not in use.
Only 20 minutes away, Lewisburg, the county seat, is often called one of America’s best small towns.
