Spacious and impressive, this grand home constructed over several years by local master craftsmen has a seemingly endless list of custom touches and high-end features, from its waterfall entrance to its multilevel decks, mahogany pub, and plush home theater. Lodge-style in architecture, the home features beautiful marble, tile, and exotic woods, and is both a showplace and a comfortable retreat.
A short drive from the Greenbrier Hotel and golf courses, the home occupies its own wooded ridge in the Greenbrier Sporting Club gated community. A bluestone walkway leads across a small bridge with a decorative railing, past a lily pond and waterfall to the entrance. Evergreens, boxwoods, Japanese maples, and impressive boulders add to the setting. An arched entry graces the double door entry, flanked by Bevelo gas lanterns from New Orleans.
Entering the home, your gaze is immediately drawn to the post-and-beam living room, where a soaring cathedral ceiling and wall of glass afford a sweeping view of the mountain scenery. A beautiful stone fireplace is framed by built-in cabinetry and bookshelves. The attractive, eye-catching floors are Brazilian cherry. The living room opens to a large deck wrapping around the home and leading to other areas as well as upper and lower level decks. The decking is Ipe, a dense hardwood indigenous to Central and South America that many architects prefer because of its long-lasting, low-maintenance qualities.
The kitchen overlooks the living room. The 12-foot cherry island comfortably seats 6 people and has a unique serpentine sink. The counters are marble, and the design incorporates a built-in rolltop cherry desk. Appliances include a Wolf 5-burner gas stove with a grill and two large ovens, a Thermador oven, a built-in Sub Zero refrigerator as well as built-in Sub Zero Freezer, Sharp drawer-style microwave and 2 Asko dishwashers. There is a triple stainless-steel sink and a walk-in pantry. A prep kitchen is an adjacent, and it includes a stainless-steel Victory freezer, a Manitowoc ice maker and another triple sink.
The dining room and pub-style bar room are only a few steps from the kitchen and flow seamlessly into the living room and onto the deck. Both rooms feature mahogany walls. The bar features carved Indonesian mahogany, as well as stained glass and a brass footrail.
The master suite is on the main level. The bedroom has a vaulted ceiling, a gas fireplace, a Samsung wall TV and opens to a private deck with a hot tub. There are two walk-in closets. The tiled bath has a jetted soaking tub, a tiled shower, steam room and a heated towel rack.
The main level also includes a half-bath with a marble and porcelain vanity, and a laundry room with a Bosch washer and dryer.

Suite One has a fireplace and a bath with a shower. Suite Two has a walk-through closet that connects to a bath with a shower. Suite Three has a tiled bath with a shower-tub.
The family room has a fireplace, a concealed TV and recessed lighting. The alcove reading nook has built-in bookshelves and a window seat. A balcony offers a bird’s eye view of the living room and its mountain vista, as well as a better look at the carved beams supporting the cathedral ceiling.
The lower level has its own wood-and-marble bar with a refrigerated wine cabinet with decorative doors. The bar area overlooks and connects with a large marble tiled family room that features a stone fireplace flanked by built-in bookcases. French doors open to the lower deck, which is partly open and partly covered, and offers access to the attached greenhouse.
The home theater is on this level, with seating for eight in individual plush leather chairs.
There are two additional bedroom suites on the lower level, and their baths have shower-tubs.
