Rich Hollow is an 82.8 acre multi-use recreational property with the privacy of the country yet only minutes from town. Conveniently located only 4 miles from the heart of downtown Lewisburg and 3 miles from the hospital, this pastoral property is made up of approximately 30 acres of open fields with the remainder in mature woodland. Multiple homesites provide both countryside and long-range views. Numerous springs and several ephemeral streams can be found throughout the property. Rich Hollow is a rare opportunity since tracts of this size rarely become available in this prime location.

The world famous Greenbrier Resort is just 20 minutes east and Snowshoe Resort is only 90 minutes north. Rich Hollow is fantastic Greenbrier County, WV land for sale.


Rich Hollow has fencing and several springs were developed at one time for cattle water sources. The pasture areas are mostly fenced. A common boundary with the adjoining farm is currently not fenced through part of the field since one tenant operates both farms. Several Heritage Trees can be found scattered throughout the forest and field edges. These ancient trees have withstood the test of time, weathering ice, wind, lightning strikes, fire and of course, woodpeckers.

Rich Hollow is home to a vast array of wildlife which includes an amazing variety of song birds, owls, hawks, woodpeckers, ravens and wild turkeys. White tailed deer, raccoon, opossums, rabbits, chipmunks, coyotes, bobcats, and foxes enjoy the protection offered by the forest.

The forest floor is home to several types of mushrooms, medicinal plants, ferns and cool green mosses. One could spend a lifetime getting to know this inviting environ.
