This home is surrounded by a 1 ½ acre lawn notable for several magnificent oaks, maples, black walnut, and hickory trees, nestled amidst a mature hardwood forest. The home is a custom timber frame construction built by Saltbox Millworks, with interior and finish work completed by Southern Builders. The house features no maintenance Nichiha shake siding and is roofed with architectural shingle. The timbers used to frame the house are seasoned finished oak and are all exposed. The house has a wraparound porch and decking, featuring composite deck flooring.
This property is buffered from neighboring houses, with complete privacy, but within a very friendly and supportive community. In late autumn and winter, views of the river valley and surrounding mountains open up. When you step inside the home, you immediately notice the quality workmanship. This house features a modern kitchen with solid maple cabinets and Silestone counters, two bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and a convertible sleeping loft. The first floor has an open plan incorporating the living room, dining room, and kitchen, with the dining area and kitchen separated by a Silestone surfaced counter and hanging cabinets with glass doors on both sides.
The open floorplan, light bamboo flooring, many windows, most facing south, and west, as well as skylights on the second floor, contribute to a bright, airy ambiance. The main floor bedroom is off the kitchen and has a bathroom that was designed to allow separate, private access from the bedroom.
The second floor is accessed by an angled staircase which leads you up to a large family room that can serve as a convertible sleeping loft, bordered by a balcony. The upper portion of the dividing wall between the loft and second-floor bedroom is framed in glass to the ceiling to allow natural light to pass through the upper floor. Both the second-floor bedroom and bathroom are lit by skylight windows. Both bathrooms have tile floors and white wainscoting.
The house is climate controlled utilizing structurally insulated panels, high-efficiency windows, passive solar gain, and a conventional HVAC system.
This retreat is located in a gated community that has 2 entrances secured by automatic keypad entry gates. The home site directly accesses the Greenbrier River Trail and is within a short walk to the Greenbrier river, while sited at an elevation that provides complete protection from seasonal river flooding.

The house is being sold with a generous amount of conveyances to fully furnish and provide for its occupants including the appliances, tables & chairs, dishes & kitchenware, futon sofas, two double beds, and yard maintenance equipment, including a late model riding tractor, making it move in and get away ready.
