50.85-acre farm with 5-bedroom luxury home, tenant house, 3-stall horse barn, 24x60 equipment barn, fenced pastures, scenic mountain views. This exceptional property, with 38 acres of pasture and 12 acres of woodlands, is a rare find. A country lane leads past the tenant house and barns to the solidly constructed, beautifully maintained hilltop home, with a great room opening to a large deck with sweeping views, a gourmet kitchen with an island seating six, a home office, 5 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, a full basement, and a 3-bay garage.
The surrounding 50-acre turnkey farm includes two large grazing pastures with ponds and gravity-fed watering troughs, and four turnout lots, all enclosed with attractive wood fencing. The horse barn has electricity and running water, three stalls, and a tack room. The large equipment barn is nearby.
The home, sited to afford panoramic views of the farm and surrounding countryside, has long-lasting Hardie plank siding, which resists weather and insect damage, and architectural shingles. A stone walkway leads to the covered front porch overlooking the property. The entry opens directly to the great room, which has living, kitchen, and dining areas. Attractive maple flooring and recessed lighting are featured in the great room and throughout most of the home.
The living area has a gas fireplace with a wood mantel and ceramic tile hearth. The fireplace is controlled by a remote with an adjustable thermostat, and fuel is provided by a 1000-gallon buried propane tank. The living area includes one of five wall-mounted TVs that are negotiable with the sale. This area opens to a two-level partly covered deck with an expansive view of the neighboring farm, which is protected from development by a lifetime farm trust. The deck is an ideal spot for outdoor dining and entertaining. The large gas grill is another negotiable item.
The kitchen features custom maple cabinetry, attractive marble counters with a double stainless-steel sink, and a large central island with a Miele gas range. The island incorporates counter seating for six for casual meals and snacking. Other Miele built-in luxury appliances include a wall oven and microwave, a large stainless-steel refrigerator with a freezer drawer, and a dishwasher. The dining area adjacent to the kitchen has an attractive chandelier.
The home office on the main level affords privacy for work. It has a view of the farm, and like many of the rooms, it includes a ceiling fan.
The master suite on the main level has a tray ceiling, enhancing its spacious feel. There are two walk-in closets; the larger of the two has a separate dressing area. French doors open from the bedroom to the deck. The spacious master bath has a soaking tub, two vanities, a tiled walk-in shower and a linen closet.
The main level also includes a half-bath and a laundry room with tile flooring, custom cabinetry, and a utility sink.
Two staircases lead to the home's upper level. This level has an interesting floorplan, with four bedrooms opening to two large common areas. Three bedrooms have en suite baths, two with shower-tubs and one with a walk-in shower. This layout can lend itself to the upstairs functioning as a "habitat" for older children and teens, with space for recreation and games, plus a spare bonus room that can be used for music, crafts, or working out.
The full basement is unfinished but insulated, wired, and prepped for finishing. It wouldn't take much imagination to turn it into a man cave, a wine cellar, a studio or a family room. This generous space is actually large enough to accommodate all of these uses simultaneously.
The attached 3-bay garage has a high ceiling and is spotlessly clean, with finished walls and a painted floor.
The farm's tenant house is near the property's entrance. This 1930 cottage-style home has wood siding and a metal roof. The front porch has a porch swing and the back porch is screened. The living room has a gas fireplace, built-in bookshelves, and a ceiling fan. The tiled kitchen counters are blue and the cabinets have an off-white antique finish. Appliances include a Frigidaire electric range with a hooded vent, an Amana refrigerator, and a Whirlpool dishwasher. The kitchen includes a walk-in pantry.
There are two bedrooms. The main bedroom, just off the living room, provides access to the bathroom, which has a shower-tub and a cultured marble vanity with a porcelain sink. A Samsung washer and Whirlpool dryer are in this bathroom. The upper-level bedroom is a loft.
Twenty minutes from downtown Lewisburg via U.S. 219 and a winding country road, the property offers tranquility and privacy as well as proximity to the Greenbrier Valley Airport and I-64. Often described as an ideal small town, Lewisburg offers fine dining, boutique shopping, a golf course, an 8-screen cinema, and a lively arts scene. Annual events include the State Fair of West Virginia, two food-themed street festivals, and a literary festival. The Greenbrier Valley Theatre, West Virginia's official state theatre, offers year-round performances, and well-known artists appear in concert at Carnegie Hall. The town is home to the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine, and a campus of New River Community and Technical College.
The Greenbrier resort is in nearby White Sulphur Springs. One of the world's top luxury destinations, the 11,000-acre complex includes multiple golf courses, a spa, indoor and outdoor tennis, a casino, an artist colony, boutique shops, and a dozen restaurants.
The Greenbrier River draws anglers and kayakers, and the 75-mile-long Greenbrier River Trail paralleling the river is popular with hikers, bikers and equestrians. Snowshoe Ski Resort, a scenic 90-minute drive up U.S. 219, is the largest ski complex in the Mid-Atlantic States. Snowshoe offers golf and challenging mountain biking trails in the off-seasons.
Combining the features of a turnkey luxury residence and a working farm, this attractive, comfortable, spacious home in a peaceful pastoral setting is a unique, must-see property.
