Custom Home and 87± acres offered in 4 parcels offering easy access to a state highway but at a distance to provide solitude, with Indian Creek frontage and small pond. This beautiful Monroe County property is located only 20 miles from Lewisburg and the famous Greenbrier Resort and offers peaceful tranquility in a West Virginia retreat.
The custom-built home is 2,395± SF with two bedrooms and two and one-half bathrooms. The home is full of natural light with oversized rooms and an open architecture that mimic the openness of the outdoors. There is an atrium that overlooks the living area that will give artists and writers inspiration or it would also be perfect for the home-based business offering a quaint office space.
Originally a simple 1930’s farmhouse, the house was taken down to the frame and re-imagined with cedar siding and a metal roof. The stone foundation was replaced with cinderblock, and wings were added for the kitchen, dining room and bedrooms. A winding driveway leads to the brick-paved parking area. An entry with a tile floor and recessed lighting leads to the kitchen. A mud room/half-bath is just off this area. A new, above standard efficient heat pump was installed in 2017. All the windows in the home were replaced with thermal windows in 2015. The home is freshly painted throughout and is move-in ready condition.
The modern, spacious kitchen features custom birch cabinetry with stained glass doors, a double porcelain sink, and ample cabinetry storage. The kitchen includes a sitting/reading area with a built-in bookcase. This area could also be used as a breakfast nook.
The dining room has a chandelier and recessed lighting and five large windows providing panoramic views. The living room has an atrium design, with a high ceiling and balconies above. A woodstove set in the original brick fireplace adds to the room’s coziness, and a built-in corner hutch-entertainment center to add to its usefulness. Attractive wide-plank wood flooring is used here and throughout most of the home.
The master bedroom has plantation shutters and recessed lighting. The master bath is complete with a travertine tile floor, a jetted soaking tub, and a vanity with a marble top and porcelain sink. The second bedroom faces east and has recessed lights. The second bath has a travertine tile floor, shower and pedestal sink. A large walk-in closet with built-in organization system provides plenty of space and storage.
A wood staircase leads to the second level. Essentially a large, four-sided loft overlooking the living room, this space lends itself as an office, library, a studio or playroom.
A door on the west end of the home exits to the garden. Lilies, peonies, herbs and berries thrive in this garden, “deer proof” because of a high wooden fence. Plenty of room to plant a garden, yet enough perennials planted that the garden is even beautiful in the dead of winter. The garden area includes raised beds, a garden potting shed, compost piles and a barn. Just beyond this area, the gently sloping field affords a spectacular view of the historic Indian Creek covered bridge.
The surrounding gardens and landscaping offer extensive plantings, spectacular sunrises and sunsets with mountain views to be enjoyed from east and west facing porches. The west porch features a wisteria vine which frames the view perfectly and leads to a stone patio laced with fragrant thyme and views of Indian Creek. Landscaped with a variety of native and non-native species and low-maintenance perennials. The mature landscaping around the home includes a virtual arboretum of species: birch trees, ornamental grasses, lilacs, hydrangeas, Japanese maples, flowering cherries, azaleas, rhododendrons, and magnolia bushes and trees, to name just a few. The mature, well-established plants are drought-resistant and require little attention and no watering. The estate was professionally planned and lovingly planted by a professional horticulturist. Year round there are a multitude of plants and blooms to please the eye.
The property overlooks Indian Creek, a scenic covered bridge, and the Appalachian Mountains Antique barns and good bottom land offer great space for gardens, high tunnels for commercial vegetable production, bees, an orchard, and small livestock. Come join the “Farm to Table” movement.
1.87 acres as the foot of the property, adjacent to Highway 219 will provide the perfect place for a roadside stand, a place to park a RV or farm equipment, or another home.
The balance of the property, approximately 72 acres, is wooded with a great mixture of Appalachian Hardwoods that will provide future income.
This location is a perfect home for the big city dweller that seeks to escape the frantic lifestyle and unwind on the weekend; the hobby farmer that embraces the farm-to-table movement; the investor looking for their next VRBO home; or just want to relax and enjoy the beauty of nature!
