One mile from the charming riverside town of Alderson, this hilltop farm in Monroe County has everything a farmer needs. A winding country lane leads to the two-story farmhouse, surrounded by flowers and mountain scenery. The home’s first floor has a carpeted living room with a ceiling fan and a stone fireplace insert that heats 70% of the house.
While the original home is more than a century old, the kitchen is new, with quartz counters, ceramic tile flooring, recessed lighting, alder cabinetry, and an island that seats 6 and has a built-in wine rack. Appliances include a Jenn-Air range and oven, a Frigidaire wall oven, a Frigidaire microwave, and a Samsung refrigerator-freezer with a separate meat compartment. The pantry has sliding drawers, and just around the corner a laundry closet conceals a stackable Samsung washer and dryer. French doors open from the kitchen to the back yard, and another door exits to a covered stone patio.
Also downstairs is a dining room with propane stoveand a multi-purpose room that could serve as a bedroom, office, playroom or workout space. A bath with a shower is nearby.
The second level has three bedrooms and a bath. The master bedroom has a ceiling fan and a double closet. It opens to a large deck overlooking the back yard, with a pergola and raised beds. The three bedrooms share a spacious modern bath with a ceramic tile floor, two porcelain sinks with granite counters, a walk-in tiled shower and a claw-foot soaking tub.
The property is approximately 65% pastureland and 35% hardwood forest. All the pastures, fences and farm structures have been well maintained.
Taxes on the property are modest because it is a working farm, and insurance rates are reasonable because of the presence of a city fire hydrant at the end of the road.
This exceptional country property is ideal for many types of farming and for pasturing large animals. Nature lovers will appreciate the presence of deer and wild turkeys. The farm is located one mile south of downtown Alderson, and is equidistant from the Monroe County seat of Union and the Greenbrier County seat of Lewisburg.
