  • Wild Rock-The Story

    One of the most ecologically integrated master-planned communities in the U.S., 650-acre Wild Rock was established in 2007 by architect Carl Frishkorn, who recognized the benefits of creating an aesthetically sound community adjacent to national parkland at the rim of the New River Gorge.

    Drawing on the successes of earlier master-planned developments, such as Hilton Head, Frishkorn led Optima Properties WV, LLC, to pioneer a residential tour de force that enhanced the dramatic beauty of the gorge and afforded unmatched access to the region’s outdoor recreation.

    The Optima team spared little expense developing all phases of the Wild Rock property to ensure sustainability and harmony with nature, incorporating architectural guidelines designed to ensure the enhancement of the landscape over time.

    297 Peregrine Ridge is located in one of the most popular outdoor-recreation destination areas in West Virginia — a paradise of natural and cultural amenities found in few other places in the eastern U.S. More than a million visitors toured the region in 2014, according to the National Park Service, climbing rocks, paddling streams, and hiking, biking, and running miles of scenic trail. As a result of unrivaled access to recreation, the Boy Scouts of America established its national Jamboree site here. Winter in the mountains nearby attracts yet another recreational clientele — skiers bound for the slopes at Winterplace, a drive of 40 minutes to the south, and Snowshoe Mountain, a drive of two-and-a-half hours to the northeast.

    The home also benefits from its proximity to Adventures on the Gorge (https://www.adventuresonthegorge.com/), one of the most endearing and popular adventure resorts in the U.S., a pioneer in the whitewater rafting industry that has helped set the stage for high-end economic development in the region.

    As a happy result of its burgeoning tourism market, the area also enjoys more than its share of singular shops and restaurants, many of which cluster around Fayetteville, a drive of five minutes from the villa. Other exceptional eateries and retail destinations are located an hour west at Charleston, the state capital, and an hour east at Lewisburg, one of the most livable small towns in the U.S., according to National Geographic. The region is also renowned for great golf, and more than a score of courses are located within a drive of just more than an hour of the villa, including three at The Greenbrier, home of the PGA tour, and Oakhurst Links, the first course built in the U.S.

    The region is not only a pleasure to visit; it’s easy to access. As remote as the region may seem, an expressway courses through its center, spanning the gorge by way of the New River Gorge Bridge only two miles away. Interstates 77 and 64 are only a half hour’s drive to the south and I-79 is a half hour’s drive to the north. Amtrak passenger stations on the Chicago-New York route are located a half-hour’s drive south near Beckley and an hour’s drive east and west at Charleston and White Sulphur Springs.

    Public airports offering jet service are located 40 minutes to the south at Beckley and an hour away at Charleston and Lewisburg.
