Architect-designed, this French Eclectic country home has 8100+ square feet on three levels, currently configured with three large bedroom suites. The carpeted lower level gallery offers room for additional suites and/or a spacious private apartment. Set in the rolling farmland of northern Greenbrier County, the home has meticulously landscaped grounds and sweeping mountain vistas.
A winding driveway leads from the gated entry to a courtyard, where the stylish two-story home and 3-car garage front on a circular drive. The home is gray with white trim, and has a prominent roof typical of the French Eclectic style, with black architectural shingles.
A grand 2-story entry hall, with pillars, a marble floor and a crystal chandelier, opens to the living room on the left. The living room features a gas fireplace with a marble hearth, floor-to-ceiling windows and oak flooring. The large dining room on the right of the entry features a similar window arrangement, a crystal chandelier and built-in cabinetry.
A hallway with large pantry leads to the kitchen, with tile flooring, recessed lighting, granite counters with a double porcelain sink, white cabinetry with wood trim and a matching work island. Appliances include a classic AGA cooker (enamel cast iron stove and range manufactured in the UK), a Kenmore refrigerator/freezer, and a Kitchen Aid dishwasher. A large breakfast area adjacent to the kitchen offers views of the grounds and distant mountains, and it includes a nook with a built-in desk. A nearby sunroom with 5 windowed walls offers similar views.
The family room has a soaring cathedral ceiling, a woodburning fireplace with a marble hearth, and built-in cabinetry. This room includes an attractive custom-designed, wool rug with a butterfly and floral motif. French doors open from the family room to a back deck overlooking the gardens and mountains.
The carpeted master suite is on this main level. The master bedroom includes a private porch with mountain views. The master bath incorporates a jetted soaking tub, a private tiled shower room, two vanities (one with a porcelain sink), and two walk-in closets/dressing rooms.
The main level also has a half-bath and a laundry room with a Speed Queen washer, a Kenmore dryer, a porcelain utility sink and a Kenmore upright freezer.
A carpeted oak stairway with a copper handrail leads to the upper level, where a balcony overlooks the family room. There are two spacious carpeted bedroom suites on this level. Both include tiled bathrooms with shower-tubs, granite counters and porcelain sinks, and large walk-in closets.
A separate upstairs area with bookshelves serves as a office space.
The home’s lower level, previously a private gallery, is a unique, exceptionally large space. Carpeted, with a high ceiling, this finished basement offers endless possibilities: a recreation room, a man cave, additional bedrooms, or even a large private apartment. This level also includes a full bath with a shower-tub, a workshop with a built-in workbench, and a utility room.
A covered walkway connects the house to the 3-bay garage. Pathways encircle the home, leading past bordered gardens, flowering shrubs and a fountain.
