Several homesites are available with easy access and spectacular views.
The charming village of Union, which is the Monroe County seat, is just a 10 minute drive. Banking, healthcare facilities, drugstore, grocery shopping and great restaurants are readily available. Some of the friendliest people in West Virginia can be found in Monroe County. Monroe County has a population of about 13,000 residents and does not have a stoplight and has more cattle and sheep than people.
The Greenbrier County Airport, which has WV’s longest runway, is located just 30 minutes away and has daily flights to Atlanta and New York. The world famous Greenbrier Resort is about 30 minutes drive and Snowshoe Ski Resort is about 2 hours drive.
Well know amongst caving enthusiasts throughout the country, Crowder Cave is located on the property and contains the largest flowstone formation in the state along with many centuries old stalactites and stalagmites.
The farm is well suited for raising horses and cattle and is already fully fenced and cross fenced with excellent watering facilities. The boundary has been limed and fertilized on a regular basis and is capable of supporting an unusually high number of cattle during the grazing season. There is also a well kept barn in place.
