This charming, completely updated cottage-style home is in a quiet neighborhood only 5 minutes from The Greenbrier’s front entrance. The floorplan includes open kitchen/dining/living spaces that flow seamlessly, a spacious living room with a fireplace, two ceiling fans and lots of natural light, 3 bedrooms and 3 full baths, a large laundry room, two mudrooms and a single car garage.
Sited on a hill with a terraced back yard affording views of the distant hills and mountains, the home, gray with white trim, is on a one-way street with limited traffic. The elevated front porch is surrounded by boxwoods and gated for the safety of children and pets.
An entry hall with a coat closet leads to the kitchen and living area on the left and bedrooms on the right. The kitchen has gray cabinetry and solid surface counters and includes a small eat-at bar. The high quality linoleum flooring simulates the look of tile. Whirlpool appliances include a side-by-side refrigerator with a freezer drawer, an electric range, a wall-mounted microwave and a dishwasher. The dining area is between the kitchen and living room.
The living room steps down, creating a sunken effect. This large room has hardwood flooring and includes a brick gas fireplace with a TV mount over the mantel, built-in bookshelves, two ceiling fans and a bank of windows. A door in the rear exits through a mud room to the back yard.
A laundry room with Maytag appliances and a utility sink is also located in this wing, as well as a tiled bath with a shower and a large “bonus” space leading to the single car garage.
The bedrooms are on the opposite side of the home. The master bedroom has hardwood flooring, two ceiling fans and a large closet. The master bath has a tiled shower and a composite marble vanity with an integrated sink. Bedrooms 2 and 3 share a hallway bath with a shower-tub and a composite marble vanity with an integrated sink.
The Villa Park neighborhood includes a park and athletic field, and it offers the added advantage of being tucked out of sight just east of The Greenbrier. One of the world’s top luxury resorts, The Greenbrier has played host to royalty, celebrities and heads of state, as well as plenty of “regular” folks. Set on 11,000 pristine acres in the Allegheny Mountains, the hotel has 720 guest rooms, a dozen restaurants, over 50 indoor and outdoor activities and 36 retail shops.
The Greenbrier River, five miles away, draws anglers and kayakers, and the 75-mile long Greenbrier River Trail paralleling the river is popular with hikers and cyclists.
The city of White Sulphur Springs has restaurants, shopping, services, a National Fish Hatchery and the annual Dandelion Festival.
Nearby Lewisburg, the historic county seat, offers shopping, dining and year-round entertainment. Annual events include the State Fair of West Virginia, Taste of Our Towns, the Lewisburg Chocolate Festival and the Lewisburg Literary Festival. The Greenbrier Valley Theatre, West Virginia’s official state theatre, offers year-round live performances, and well-known and rising stars appear in concert at Carnegie Hall.
Convenient, cozy and beautifully remodeled, this charming Villa Park home is easy to maintain and ready for occupancy.
