Less than a minute from the Green Sulphur Springs I-64 exit, this picture-perfect country home is perched on a hillside with a spectacular view of Lick Creek, which borders the nearly 6-acre property. The solidly-built 1978 brick home has a covered front porch that offers a perfect spot for enjoying the view. A porch swing and rockers even convey with the house! A ramp leading to the porch provides handicapped accessibility.
Most rooms on the main level have oak flooring. The entrance hall has a coat closet. The living room features a brick fireplace with a raised hearth of local stone, flanked by matching built-in bookcases. Two windows afford views of the front lawn, pasture and creek.
The kitchen and family room are enhanced by a large skylight that brightens both areas. The cabinets and pantry are oak. The counters are laminate and include seating for 4 for snacking and informal meals. The double stainless steel sink has a disposal. Appliances include an LG side-by-side refrigerator with a freezer drawer, a Kenmore electric range, a Whirlpool microwave oven and a Frigidaire dishwasher. The adjacent dining room has oak flooring and a chandelier and overlooks a scenic wooded hillside behind the home.
The family room exits to a sunporch, which has 7 sliding glass windows and connects to a back deck. The sunroom has a linoleum-covered concrete floor and it is heated by baseboards for winter use.
There are 3 bedrooms with oak flooring on the main level. The master bedroom has its own bath with a shower and a cultured marble sink. Bedrooms 2 and 3 share a hallway bath with a shower-tub and a cultured marble sink. Bedroom 3 has a built-in desk and shelving.
A laundry room with a Whirlpool washer and a Kenmore dryer is also on the main level.
The lower level is accessed from the main level by a winding metal staircase. This floor is a walkout basement finished as a separate apartment, with its own family room and kitchen, three bedrooms with generous closets, and a bathroom with a shower and a cultured marble sink. The floors are concrete covered with linoleum or carpet, and the walls have wood paneling. The kitchen has oak cabinetry, a double stainless steel sink, a Kenmore refrigerator and a Tappan microwave.
The lower level also includes a utility/storage room with built-in shelving. There is a water softening unit and a 10K generator providing emergency backup service for the main floor and the well.
The spacious double garage is attached and includes a large full-wall storage cabinet.
There are 3 well-maintained outbuildings for lawn and garden equipment and additional storage.
The mature landscaping surrounding the home includes rhododendrons, boxwoods and barberry bushes, hickory, oak, maple, magnolia and ornamental pear trees. The most beautiful landscaping touch, however, is provided by mother nature in the form of the meandering creek and small pasture bordering the property, which looks like a scene from a calendar.
While the property is only a quarter-mile from the Green Sulphur Springs I-64 exit, the interstate is barely visible from the house and doesn’t disturb its tranquil setting. A gas station-convenience store is just on the other side of the interstate.
This Summers County property is halfway between Lewisburg and Beckley, which are each an easy 30-minute drive away on the interstate.
A charming home in a lovely rural setting, this Green Sulphur Springs property is a true piece of Almost Heaven.
