Green Valley Forest – 31 +/- acres offers an outstanding and private building envelope within a maturing mountain forest. This property is located in a small farming community just outside of Peterstown and with great views of Peter’s Mountain on the Allegheny Front.
The land is suitable for residential building with several cabin/home sites. There is about 3 acres of flat to gently sloping ground suitable to clear for pasture or raise a gigantic garden. There is also an abundant deer and turkey population.
Green Valley Forest is an easy 5 minute drive on paved roads through farming country to Peterstown and a 30 minute drive to Princetown and Interstate 77. Rich Creek, Narrows, Pearisburg and Blacksburg are but a short drive away and offer shopping, schools, theatres, modern medical facilities and airports within a 25-30 minutes’ drive.
Within an hour’s drive are located some of the finest recreational facilities in West Virginia. Winterplace Ski Resort, whitewater rafting/fishing on the New River and Gauley River, 2000 acre Bluestone Lake, Pipestem State Park and Resort and the 80,000 acre New River National Gorge National Park. Five other area state parks and state forests offer unlimited hiking, horseback riding, ATV riding and rock climbing opportunities.

3 acres are presently open and 28 acres is in forest. There are some nice trails in place to enjoy a quite walk on. About 5 acres of the forest is level to gently sloping.
Beechnuts, Hickory nuts, sweet White Oak and Red Oak Acorns provide a sustainable food source for the squirrels, chipmunks, whitetail deer and wild turkey that live in abundance in the forest. The intermittent stream provides a water source for the wildlife.
Many species of songbirds and woodpeckers that thrive in the special habitat that large trees provide make their home in this special forest environ. It is exciting to see and hear the large and very vocal Pileated Woodpecker, with its bright red crest dressed in a black and white tuxedo, sweep through the tall canopy in search of a morning snack.
