Mountain ridgelines, sweeping views, four magnificent seasons, country roads where the meeting of a tractor and a pickup are a traffic jam, and even a covered bridge on the way home … it’s all yours at Falcon Nest. Artfully designed to invite the natural world inside, this contemporary mountaintop home only 20 minutes from downtown Lewisburg, West Virginia, features large expanses of glass, timbers and cabinetry of rare virgin wormy chestnut, fireplaces and mantels of local sandstone, earth tones suggested by the surrounding landscape, and sweeping bird’s eye views to the south and southwest.
A graceful arch above the front entryway is echoed in the interior design. The entry opens into a great room with a soaring 35-foot cathedral ceiling and an expansive view of the valley, farmland and distant mountains, giving the impression of watching the Nature Channel from your own window. Eagles and red tail hawks soar above the nearby cliffs, and deer amble peacefully through the 5½-acre property, which is adjacent to an additional 5½ acres that are also available.
The wooded, rustic setting affords total privacy. At the same time the home’s spacious, flexible, open-floor plan lends itself to entertaining, with plenty of floor space plus a large screened porch and an open deck which benefit from the same views as the great room.
Southwest mission-style stucco walls blend seamlessly with beautifully handcrafted woodwork and porcelain tile throughout the house, gently lit by recessed lighting. A built-in chestnut china cabinet in the great room is adjacent to the kitchen, which features an island with a Gaggenau cooktop, a GE oven, refrigerator and trash compactor, 2 Bosch dishwashers, Corian-type countertops, matching chestnut cabinetry, and a fold-out pantry that provides ready access for kitchen storage.
The home’s easy-to-navigate one-floor plan divides the living, dining and entertaining spaces in one wing from 3 bedrooms and 2½ baths in another. A den with an eye-catching stacked stone fireplace connects the living room to the master suite, which has a high ceiling with timberwork and a fan, and expansive views of the woods and mountains. The master bath has a Kohler Sok Tub for full-body immersion. The second and third bedrooms share a Jack-and-Jill bath, with separate sinks and toilets, and a common shower/tub.
Red cedar and sandstone on the exterior reflect the home’s signature organic architecture. The attached 3½-car garage offers plenty of space for vehicles and lawn equipment, or a workshop. An unfinished bonus room with three dormer windows over the garage could potentially become another large bedroom with bath, or two smaller ones, or even a private apartment.
In addition to ample parking space in front of the house, a gravel area on the side can accommodate an RV, with built-in hookups.
Lewisburg, often called one of the best small towns in America, offers fine dining, interesting shops, a country club, an 8-screen cinema, and a lively arts scene. Annual events include the State Fair of West Virginia, two food-themed street festivals and a literary festival. The Greenbrier Valley Theatre, the state’s official professional theatre, offers year-round performances, and well-known musical artists appear on the stage at Carnegie Hall. The town is home to the 800-student West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine, and a campus of New River Community and Technical College.
The Greenbrier, in nearby White Sulphur Springs, is one of the world’s top luxury resorts. The hotel’s many offerings include three golf courses, a spa, a tennis complex, a casino, high-end shops, an art colony and 10 restaurants. The resort hosts an annual PGA tournament, and houses a $30,000,000 summer training facility for the NFL’s New Orleans Saints.
For outdoor enthusiasts, the Greenbrier River has long been a draw for fishermen and kayakers, and the 75-mile long Greenbrier River Trail, which parallels the river, is popular with hikers and cyclists. Snowshoe Ski Resort, a scenic 90-minute drive to the north, is the largest ski complex in the Mid-Atlantic states, and also has an extensive system of mountain biking trails.
An exceptionally beautiful and relaxing home in a wild and wonderful setting, Falcon Nest is a nature lover’s paradise, a private lodge far from the hustle and bustle of modern life, but close enough to shopping, medical and educational facilities, and recreational and cultural amenities to provide the perfect balance many people seek when looking for a primary residence or a second home.
Falcon Nest sits at an elevation of approximately 2,500 feet and is located in Greenbrier County, West Virginia, just 6 miles west of historic downtown Lewisburg which was named America’s Coolest Small Town in 2011. Historic architecture, vibrant arts scene, delectable cuisine, boutiques and art galleries form an eclectic mix that enriches the laid-back lifestyle of the Greenbrier Valley.
The area is blessed with modern medical facilities with the hospital just 7.5 miles away, a major airport, great shopping and all the conveniences found in larger cities. Still yet, with more cattle than people in the area, it is easy to get to know your neighbors and form lasting friendships.
The world famous Greenbrier Resort is just 30 minutes east and Snowshoe Resort is only 90 minutes drive north. The Greenbrier River and New River plus 5 state parks offer unlimited outdoor recreational opportunities.
