Wendover Hills on Stringtown Road

Wendover Hills is an expansive 4 bedroom brick home with full basement on 3.2 +/- acres located on a knoll in the rural farmland of Monroe County, WV. The grounds of the property lay well and several spots for a large garden or for planting more fruit trees to make an orchard. The home contains approximately 4,000 square feet of living space plus 640 +/- square feet of unfinished space in the basement, a 4’ attic that runs the length of the home and makes great storage space and an attached 2-car garage. One of the rooms in the basement could be further finished out for a 5th bedroom. The home is well constructed with hardwood floors and carpet throughout. A woodstove in the living room makes a great place to warm up and read a good book on a cold day.

Mature pin oak and maple trees anchor the home on the knoll and are accompanied by a fruitful row of apple trees. A grape arbor, blackberries and pear tree also adorn the property.

Wendover Hills is located in the Pickaway Rural Historic District which is on the National Register of Historic Places and was featured in Morton’s 1916 book “Monroe County History.”

As described in the Historic Register annotations, the “Pickaway Rural Historic District is level to moderately rolling land surrounded by moderately hilly land devoted to pasture and is backed in the distance by Peters Mountain or the Allegheny Front to the east and south; by Swopes Knobs and the Appalachian Mountains to the west. The very prominent Bicketts Knob to the west is seen from all areas of the historic landscape. Peters Mountain is named after Peter Wright.

The landscape within the Pickaway Rural Historic District continues as an agricultural resource after two hundred years as Monroe County’s premier agricultural example, maintaining its nineteenth and early twentieth century agricultural integrity. {Section 7, Page 1; Page 5}
