A scenic winding road leads through cattle and horse country, up Butler Mountain, to this cozy 2-bedroom, 1632 square-foot home built in 1999. Set in a spacious yard with mature landscaping, fruit trees and plenty of room for gardening and outdoor activities, this picturesque property offers privacy and tranquility but is only 20 minutes from shopping, restaurants and services.
If you find rural living appealing, the unspoiled northern area of Greenbrier County has plenty to offer: rolling hills, pristine farms and scenic vistas around every curve in the road. This 2-bedroom, 2-bath hideaway on Butler Mountain occupies mostly level acreage. Surrounded by English ivy, boxwoods and native shrubs, the one-story, cottage-style home has tan, easy-to-maintain vinyl siding and a green metal roof.
The front porch opens into both the living room and the kitchen. The large living room has wainscoting and a chair rail, and a gently sloping ceiling with a ceiling fan. The kitchen has oak cabinetry, a double stainless steel sink, tile countertops and a moveable island. Appliances include a Whirlpool refrigerator-freezer and a Whirlpool electric range. Like most of the home, the living room and kitchen have oak flooring.
A utility room adjacent to the kitchen includes a Crosley deep freezer, hookups for a washer and dryer, and a utility sink.
The master suite has a walk-in closet and a ceiling fan. The master bath has a tile floor, a shower-tub combo, and an oak vanity with a laminate countertop and 2 porcelain sinks. The second bedroom also has a walk-in closet and ceiling fan. The second bathroom has tile flooring, a shower-tub combo, a vanity with a composite marble sink, and a linen closet.
What was formerly a long back porch has been enclosed, creating a multi-purpose space for uses that could include an office, a play room or a studio. This room opens onto a two-level deck overlooking the back yard and a four-season panorama of mountaintops and ridgelines to the east and southeast. Deck furniture and a portable chimney-style fire pit convey with the sale.
The property also includes a 22 x 28 heated outbuilding with 2 ceiling fans. Currently configured as a workout room, this building offers possibilities as a workshop or storage area, or, with a few creative touches, it could be the perfect man cave.
Mature trees surrounding the property include oaks, evergreens, walnuts, apples and pears.
The well-insulated home was constructed with 2×6 studs for extra energy efficiency. Baseboard hot water heat is supplied by an oil furnace, and there are two 275-gallon oil tanks.
The scenic drive from Butler Mountain to Lewisburg is less than 15 miles, putting shopping and Interstate access only a few minutes away.
