  • Property Narrative

    Follow the stone walkway, climb the steps to the porch and take in the view, overlooking the 10-mile stretch of Peters Mountain where the Appalachian Trail skirts the West Virginia-Virginia border. Step inside the great room and experience the equally impressive interior: 8×8 square white pine logs cut by local sawmills in Ripplemead, Virginia, and Cashmere, West Virginia, 21’ cathedral tongue and groove ceiling with exposed beams, a soaring two-story stone fireplace with a wood mantel and stone hearth, and oak hardwood flooring.

    The kitchen features custom pine cabinetry and laminate counters. Appliances conveying with the sale include electric range with over the range microwave, a refrigerator-freezer, and dishwasher.  A dining area near the kitchen has an eye-catching wagon wheel chandelier.

    Two of the home’s three bedrooms are on the main level. The spacious master suite has exposed beams, a ceiling fan and two closets with custom sliding doors. The master bath has a shower and a cultured marble vanity. Bedroom Two also features exposed beams, ceiling fan and large closet with sliding doors. This bedroom is served by a bathroom accessed from the hallway.

    A laundry room is also on the main level, and includes shelving, as well as a washer and dryer that convey.

    Bedroom Three is a large enclosed loft stretching the width of the two bedrooms below. A balcony provides an ideal spot to overlook the great room and massive stone fireplace.

    The full basement includes a finished area with bamboo flooring, that can serve as a family room, play room, home gym, or fourth bedroom. A half-bath is part of this finished space. The basement’s unfinished portion houses utilities and has plenty of extra room for storage and a workshop. Double doors open from the basement to the yard.

    The home has a full-length covered back porch. The view from this porch is of the mixed hardwood forest behind the home.

    This well-constructed, contemporary, comfortable log home is a perfect place to relax and commune with nature. Located near the Monroe County communities of Lindside, Ballard and Peterstown, it is about a half-hour drive from Princeton, WV, and an hour from Lewisburg, WV, and Blacksburg, VA.
