This attractive property, known as the Stacey Tract, overlooks the site of a 19th Century mineral spa built in 1836, the Blue Sulphur Springs Resort, and its only surviving building, a majestic 12-columned Greek Revival pavilion. A backdrop to the pavilion, the property rises up the side of a mountain and affords panoramic views of surrounding farms, hills and mountains.
Last timbered in 2014, the extensive woodlands includes red oak, white oak, maple, poplar and hickory trees. While this 865-acre tract has obvious value for its timber, it also offers possible home sites with impressive views.
Private without being isolated, the property is a 20-minute drive from the I-64 Alta exit and 30 minutes from Lewisburg, the seat of Greenbrier County. West Virginia’s Greenbrier Valley is a 5-hour drive from Washington DC, 4 hours from Charlotte NC and 4 hours from Pittsburgh PA. Home to picturesque small towns, rolling farms and the world famous 11,000-acre Greenbrier resort, the area offers an enticing mixture of unspoiled scenery and sophisticated cultural attractions. Voted the “Coolest Small Town in America,” Lewisburg is a vibrant 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 onstage and in outdoor concerts at Carnegie Hall. Both of these arts organizations offer extensive educational programming for children and youth.
The historic Greenbrier in nearby White Sulphur Springs is one of the world’s top luxury resorts. The hotel’s countless offerings include multiple golf courses, a spa, a tennis complex, a casino, over 50 boutique shops and a dozen restaurants.
The nearby Greenbrier River draws anglers and kayakers, and the 75-mile long Greenbrier River Trail paralleling 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.
A good investment for its timber or a place to get away from it all surrounded by nature, this large, unspoiled tract offers multiple possibilities.
