344 Standing Stone Road, Alderson, WV

Secluded and private, this delightful craftsman-style home is tucked off Dark Hollow Road in Alderson, WV. Perfect for the homeowner who wants to feel far away from it all without actually being too far away. Completed in 1993, this sturdy, stick-built two-story house boasts 4 x 6 framing. The foundation, with crawlspace access, has been built into the hillside on one side, adding to the lasting durability of the construction. The exterior is poplar siding and the roof was painted and sealed in 2017. A new gutter system was recently installed on the backside of the house.

  • Property Narrative

    Two porches, both accessible from the driveway, lead to the main living space of the home. The central
    feature of the living room is a beautifully hand-built stone chimney and wood-burning stove. The stove
    easily heats this excellently insulated 5-bedroom, 2-full bathroom house. Electric baseboard heat serves
    as a backup heat source.

    A bump-out dining room with three large windows overlooks the lower section of the 3+-acre property.
    In spring and summertime dogwoods bloom and a small pond fills bringing many birds and other wildlife
    into view.

    A galley kitchen with original oak cabinetry leads from the dining room into a large laundry/pantry
    space. Gas range and dishwasher convey. The main floor includes a full bathroom with shower and tub
    as well as an office space or bedroom.

    There is oak, carpet, and pine flooring in the home.

    Upstairs, four bedrooms with closets, a full bathroom, and central linen closet make this home perfect
    for a growing family. The upstairs bathroom features a clawfoot tub, large closet space, and tile floor.

    The master bedroom is not to be missed. Two of the four walls are consumed by enormous windows
    that create the feeling of sleeping in the trees. The master bedroom leads to another room with bump
    out windows mirroring those in the dining room below. A vaulted ceiling and second tier window create
    an inspiring space for yoga, meditation or an office.

    Ample storage space runs the length of the house. Ceiling fans throughout the upstairs keep stove’s warm air circulating throughout each of the rooms.

    The house sits on 3.06 acres. The upper knoll has been cleared for a garden and leads to an
    orchard of apple, pear, and peach trees. The lower end of the property offers wooded acreage lending
    to the ease and viability of the wood stove as the primary heat source.
