Picturesque 3-bedroom cottage in downtown Lewisburg. Close to shops, restaurants and cultural amenities. Easy to maintain yard, plenty of parking.
This appealing 2-story home has character, history and is only a stone’s throw from Washington Street, in the heart of the Greenbrier Valley. Built in 1900 and updated over the years, the 1848-square-foot home has a front porch, back deck and landscaping, but no yard, eliminating lawn chores. It faces a quiet, tree-lined street with parking, and has two private parking spaces in the rear.
A stone walkway leads from the sidewalk to the inviting front porch of this cozy residence, a perfect setting for rockers and a porch swing. Sugar maple trees provide shade, and boxwoods, rhododendrons, holly bushes, burning bushes and a Japanese maple add to its picture-perfect charm.
Entering the home, the original oak floors and oak treads on the staircase catch the eye. There are four rooms on the main level and four on the upper level. The living room has tall windows, a brass chandelier, a fireplace with a wood mantel, and like most areas in the home, large custom milled baseboards.
The den is similar in size and features, but without a fireplace, and with the addition of built-in storage cabinetry.
A side porch was enclosed to create another room. This sunny space has 4 East-facing windows, a continuous display shelf on all four walls, a painted floor, and an exit to the deck.
The rear of the home contains the kitchen and a half-bath. The kitchen has a Crosley gas range with 4 burners, a Frigidaire refrigerator-freezer, and a porcelain sink. The half-bath has a pedestal sink.
The second floor has 3 bedrooms, a full bath, and a sitting area similar to the enclosed sunporch below. All the bedrooms have track lighting. Because of the age of the home they lack closet space, but the current owners have addressed this issue with antique wardrobes that add distinctive character. The bathroom features a cast iron tub with a shower surround.
A crawl space basement contains the furnace and reveals details of the original stone foundation.
The property’s compact size and maintenance-free landscaping make it an ideal place to simply lock the doors and go away for a few weeks. Its convenient location just off Washington Street puts the vibrant downtown just a stroll away.
Lewisburg, the commercial center of the Greenbrier Valley, has been called one of America’s best small towns, with boutiques, galleries, fine dining, a lively arts scene, two annual food-themed festivals, a literary festival, and a busy year-round schedule of community events. The State Fair of West Virginia, a classic country fair with rides, exhibits, concerts and livestock competitions, takes place in nearby Fairlea every August.
The historic Greenbrier is less than 10 minutes away in White Sulphur Springs. A 10,000-acre world-class luxury resort, the hotel has restaurants and shops open to the public. The Greenbrier hosts an annual PGA tournament in July, and it serves as the summer practice facility for the NFL’s New Orleans Saints.
Snowshoe Mountain Resort, an hour-and-a-half to the north, is the mid-Atlantic region’s largest ski complex. The four-season resort has a golf course designed by Gary Player and challenging mountain biking trails.
A charming property with an unbeatable location, 300 Courtney Drive offers elegance, comfort and convenience in a small package.
