Charming historic early 1800’s home on 4.5 +/- acres overlooking the waters of Kitchen Creek in Gap Mills, WV. 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom home includes original 1800 log structure with exposed beams and chinking with working wood fireplaces throughout. Large airy wraparound porch is a perfect outdoor living space and includes a porch swing that is just right for relaxing or reading a book.

Modern kitchen includes newer appliances and a Viking gas range and oven. The kitchen opens off the dining room which allows for interaction between the chef and guests. Eating in the dining rooms takes you back to yesteryear with its exposed hand-hewn beams.

The oversized living room and main bedroom each include working wood-fireplaces and large windows which let in plenty of natural light. The living room has an open hearth fireplace and the main bedroom has a wood stove insert which are both comfortable places to relax by the fire on a cool autumn evening or cold wintery day.

The Old Mill House has a detached garage with a large studio above with plenty of privacy.

The 4.5 +/- acres is well kept and includes a large lawn, wooded areas and landscaping. Kitchen Creek peacefully winds across the front of the property. The winding gravel driveway crosses a wooden bridge across the stream and then winds up a short hill to the residence. In addition to the wraparound porch, there is a large private stone patio area with awning in back of the home surrounded by terraced gardens and fountain which is a favorite place for songbird to come bathe.

One of your neighbors just across Kitchen Creek is the well-known Cheese and More Shop run by local Mennonites. When you are hungry at lunch time, just walk down and cross your own private arched footbridge for a delicious sandwich and pleasant conversation with both locals and passersby.
