Pre-Civil War 2-story brick home on 3+/-acres in northern Greenbrier County, surrounded by farms and woodlands. Renovation/restoration project.

  • Narrative

    The construction date is uncertain on this historic brick home occupied by generations of the same family. Tucked on a low hill surrounded by majestic trees, the pristine country setting is totally private but only 10 minutes from the Greenbrier Valley Airport. Currently configured with 4 bedrooms and 2 baths, the home has “good bones” and offers creative remodeling possibilities. High-speed internet is also available!

    Country roads and a winding gravel drive lead to the 3-acre property, once an elegant manor house on a large farm. Old growth oaks, catawba, evergreen and osage orange trees add to the hillside setting, overlooking the surrounding farmland and mountains.

    A sidewalk and steps lead to the elevated porch. The original front door is secured with an impressive antique brass key, a conversation piece in its own right. Many of the home’s windows are also original, with the “wavy” glass typical in Nineteenth Century homes.

    The floor plan is also typical of the period, with a living room and parlor/library with fireplaces (currently sealed but potentially restorable) near the entry and a kitchen and dining room in the rear. A porch/mud room exits to the back yard. There is a partial downstairs bath near the kitchen.The upper level has 4 bedrooms and one bath. Two bedrooms have closets, unusual for an era when many homes depended on wardrobes for storing clothes.

    Bricks for the home were manufactured on site using local clay. There are two outbuildings, including a substantial two-level one large enough to be reimagined as a guest cottage or studio. The lower portion could also serve as a root cellar.

    An intriguing “project” property, this venerable home is potentially, in creative hands, once again an elegant manor.
