  • Property Narrative

    This picturesque 2-story, 4-bedroom brick home was built in 1941 as a country retreat for Ward Buchanan, a senior executive with Procter & Gamble, and his wife Gladys. Totally remodeled and updated, the home enjoys a private setting bordering a 600-acre farm, with dramatic 360-degree scenic vistas. Spacious and charming, with two stone terraces for relaxing and entertaining. Close to the airport and only 15 minutes from downtown Lewisburg.

    Just off the living room, the master suite occupies its own private wing. The master bedroom features an oversized picture window framing a view of the rolling hills and distant mountains, and a tiled fireplace that uses logs or gas. The flooring is oak and the lighting is recessed. The master bath has a heated tile floor, dual vanities with quartz counters and porcelain sinks, a jetted soaking tub, and a tiled shower with a shower seat and a rain showerhead. The master wing also includes a large sitting room/library/nursery. The room opens directly to the front terrace.

    The kitchen and dining room are on the opposite side of the entry hall. The kitchen’s eye-catching quartz counters incorporate seating for 3 or 4 for casual meals and snacking. The wood cabinetry features self-closing drawers, and two cabinets have opaque acrylic-glass doors. There is a walk-in pantry. GE appliances include a 6-burner gas range with a hooded vent and a side-by-side refrigerator with a freezer drawer. There are two sinks  a large farmhouse-style stainless steel sink and a prep sink. Both have disposals. The adjacent dining room is large enough to accommodate a dozen or more people, and it has a picture window. French doors open from the dining room to the terrace, creating a natural flow for outdoor dining and entertaining.

    Adjacent to the kitchen on the main level is a guest suite with a separate, private entrance, tiled bath and pedestal sink. In addition there are a powder room, sun porch and laundry room with washer and dryer hookups. A covered breezeway provides access to the double garage with an exceptionally high ceiling and an attractive composite wood door.

    Oak stairs lead to the upper level, which has three bedrooms and two baths. Bedroom 1 is a second master suite, with mountain views to the north-northwest, a large walk-in closet and a tiled bath with shower. Bedroom 2 faces west-southwest, and it also affords mountain views. It is the only room in the home with original oak flooring from the 1941 construction. Bedroom 3 is oriented to the east and overlooks the woods behind the home. Bedrooms 2 and 3 share a tiled hallway bath with a shower and porcelain sink. This level is a separate heating and air conditioning zone, allowing temperatures to be adjusted as occupancy requires. There is a small electric furnace to provide heat.

    The home’s spacious lower level is essentially a utility basement. The basement is cool and dry and has several separate areas, including a space that would make a perfect spot for a wine cellar. One can see the poured concrete walls of the foundation and overhead the steel trusses supporting the concrete subfloor which extends under the entire main level. With routine care this house could stand for 500 years.

    The main level has two heating and air conditioning zones divided by the entry hall. Each zone has a propane furnace to provide heat. The home has its own well and septic system.

    Sited on a hillside overlooking pristine farmland on three sides and woodlands on the fourth, the home’s location is private but an easy drive to Lewisburg and nearby Greenbrier Valley Airport.

    Often called an ideal small town, Lewisburg has fine dining, boutique shopping, a golf course, an 8-screen cinema and a lively arts scene. Annual events include the State Fair of West Virginia, two food-themed street festivals and a literary festival. The Greenbrier Valley Theatre offers year-round live performances, and well-known artists appear in concert at Carnegie Hall. In addition to the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine, the community is home to an attractive campus of New River Community and Technical College.

    The Greenbrier, 8 miles away in White Sulphur Springs, is one of the world’s premiere luxury resorts. The hotel’s many offerings include multiple golf courses, a spa, a tennis complex, a casino, over 50 boutique shops and a dozen restaurants.

    The nearby Greenbrier River draws anglers and kayakers, and the 75-mile long Greenbrier River Trail is popular with hikers and bicyclists. Snowshoe Ski Resort, a scenic 90-minute drive to the north, is the largest ski complex in the Mid-Atlantic States, and it offers an extensive system of mountain biking trails in the off-seasons.

    Unique, spacious and turnkey-ready, this one-of-a-kind country home offers style and comfort in an ideal locati
