Built in 1991, this charming cedar log home in Belgian View Estates has recently undergone a total makeover. Spacious yet cozy, the home features native wood and stone, a large kitchen, a living room with a cathedral ceiling, a main-floor master suite and a 3-season screened porch. Set in an attractive rural neighborhood with winding lanes and underground utility lines, only minutes from downtown.
This luxurious 5-bedroom, 2.5-bath log home has curb appeal and is turnkey-ready. Sited on a level 4.46-acre partly open, partly wooded lot, the home’s immaculate exterior reflects its equally pristine interior.
A brick sidewalk leads to its long front porch, with panoramic sunset views of the surrounding farmland and distant mountains.
An attractive tiled entry hall leads to the kitchen, which features the same tile flooring and a ceiling with exposed beams. Impressive in size, the kitchen has quartz counters, Blanco fireclay sinks, handcrafted pine cabinetry, a pantry closet, and an island with a poplar counter crafted from wood on the property. The island, which seats 4, incorporates a prep sink with an Insinkerator food waste diposer, a Newair wine cooler and a Kitchen Aide ice maker. Other appliances include a Kenmore refrigerator with freezer drawer, a Peerless 6-burner gas range with a hooded vent, a GE microwave and a Kenmore Elite dishwasher.
There is a breakfast nook in the kitchen overlooking the back yard, and a dining room with wood-paneled walls, a brass chandelier and a view of the mountains.
Adjacent to the kitchen, the living room has a cathedral ceiling with exposed rafters and a fireplace and hearth of local stone. Despite its generous size, the extensive use of wood gives the living room a feeling of warmth and coziness. A loft balcony on the upper level overlooks the living room.
French doors with a transom open from the living room to a large screened porch affording views of the back yard and garden. High-quality plexiglass panels stored in the basement fit over the screens, weatherproofing the porch for cool days in the early spring and late fall.
The master suite features a bedroom with two walls of scored logs and two with matching wainscoting, and bamboo flooring. The master bath has a walk-in shower, a tile floor, and a vanity with a composite marble counter and porcelain sink.
The master suite is adjacent to a private office, which is carpeted and has a view of the mountains.
Also on the main level are a half-bath with an eye-catching decorative sink, and a laundry nook with an LG steam washer and a Kenmore dryer.
The upper level has four carpeted bedrooms and a bath, and a carpeted sitting area overlooking the living room. The bedrooms vary in size and features – one includes two closets and a gun safe, two have access to attic storage areas, three have ceiling fans, one has a built-in dresser. They share a tiled hallway bath with a shower-tub and a tiled double vanity with porcelain sinks.
The full basement, accessed from the kitchen, is a workspace and utility and storage area with built-in shelves. The basement includes an upright Frigidaire freezer, and a second laundry area with Maytag appliances and a double utility sink.
Outdoor features include an 18-foot wide paved driveway with a large parking area, a fenced dog pen and a vegetable garden protected by an electric fence. There is a storage barn for lawn equipment which incorporates two covered areas for vehicles. Just behind the barn and garden are 2.43 acres of mature woods.
Near the Lewisburg Country Club, I-64 and the Greenbrier Valley Airport, and close to shopping and entertainment, this charming log home has a “country” ambience while still only a few minutes’ drive from everything this picture-perfect, award-winning small town has to offer.
