Close to everything but hidden from view, this charming home in a fairyland setting overlooking a pond is spacious but has a wonderful “cozy cottage” feeling, complete with 2 stone fireplaces and a wood-paneled den. Tastefully combining visual appeal and creature comforts, the 3-bedroom, 2.5-bath home includes living, family and dining rooms, a covered front porch and a guest cottage.
A winding driveway leads through the property to the home, nestled in its own private woodland near the Greenbrier Valley Medical Center and local middle and high schools. A 2-bay carport with recessed lighting provides a sheltered entry into the attractive family room, converted from what was once the garage. This light and airy room features two brick walls, five large windows with a window seat, built-in cabinetry, pine flooring, recessed lighting set in a beadboard ceiling, and French doors opening to an entry hall.
The hall has a chandelier and a coat closet, and it leads to the formal living room. The living room’s focal point is its woodburning fireplace, with a marble hearth and a wood mantel accented with dentil molding. Pegged oak flooring is used in this room as well as in most of the house. Built-in bookcases surround an archway opening to the dining room, which has a brass chandelier and a picture window offering a nice view of the yard and pond.
The kitchen has white cabinetry with black wrought-iron hardware, and hardwood butcherblock counters with a double stainless-steel sink. A large window over the sink affords another view of the yard. Appliances include a Jenn Air countertop gas grill, a Whirlpool wall oven, a Kenmore refrigerator with a freezer drawer, and a Kitchen Aid dishwasher. There is a pass-through window to the adjacent den.
The den/library/office has a classic look and cozy ambience, with rich pine paneling, exposed rafters, built-in bookcases and a stone fireplace with a stone mantel and chimney.
The nearby laundry room has a linoleum floor, a utility sink, and front-loading Whirlpool Duet appliances. A powder room/half-bath is tucked discretely behind the laundry room.
There are three bedrooms. The master suite has attractive wallpaper and an area rug. The master bath has tile flooring, a porcelain sink and a tiled shower-tub. The second and third bedrooms are located in their own wing. Both are corner rooms. Bedroom two has a picture window and bedroom three has built-in storage drawers. They share a hallway bath with tile flooring, a porcelain sink and a tiled shower-tub. All three bedrooms are nicely decorated and must be seen to be appreciated.
Boxwoods and English Ivy enhance the stonework and brick exterior. There are two stone chimneys and an architectural shingled roof. The covered front porch is a relaxing, shady spot overlooking the terraced yard and pond, and the springhouse sheltering the natural spring that feeds it and gives the home its name, Hidden Spring.
The property includes a carriage house-style guest cottage. The cottage has a large front porch, a sitting room with built-in bookcases, one bedroom and a tiled bath with a shower-tub and marble vanity.
Set in its own wooded glen barely a stone’s throw from the Greenbrier Valley Medical Center, medical offices, local schools and shopping, this appealing property offers privacy plus the convenience of being only a short drive from downtown Lewisburg or downtown Ronceverte.
Voted the Coolest Small Town in America, nearby Lewisburg is a vibrant, picturesque community with shopping, fine dining and year-round entertainment. Annual events include the State Fair of West Virginia, Taste of Our Towns, the Lewisburg Chocolate Festival and the Lewisburg Literary Festival. The Greenbrier Valley Theatre, West Virginia’s official state theatre, presents year-round live theatre, and well-known and rising stars appear on stage and in outdoor concerts at Carnegie Hall.
The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, only 20 minutes away, is one of the world’s top luxury resorts. Set on 11,000 acres, the hotel’s endless offerings include multiple golf courses, a spa, a tennis complex, a casino, boutique shopping and a dozen restaurants.
The nearby Greenbrier River draws anglers and kayakers. The 75-mile long Greenbrier River Trail that parallels the river is popular with hikers and cyclists. Snowshoe Ski Resort, the largest ski complex in the Mid-Atlantic States, is a scenic 90-minute drive to the north on US 219.
A luxury home in a magical setting, Hidden Spring is unique, stylish and comfortable.
