Transport yourself immediately into the heart of traditional southern West Virginia with this spacious, historic home on a hilltop surrounded by four quiet acres of grass and trees. This is a former coal company superintendent's house built in the 1920s when Glen Jean was a coal boom town. The property is ideally located in the New River Gorge - minutes from whitewater rafting, National Park activities, The Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve and rails-to-trails paths. You're also a short drive to Fayetteville (voted one of America's coolest small towns), Beckley (a local commercial hub), and Oak Hill. At the house, you'll find most of your time spent on the very large covered side porch, by the designated fire pit area, or in the backyard playing badminton, cornhole and croquet. Inside you'll find all original wood flooring, a wide, wood staircase, three sets of French Doors connecting all of the main areas, and large rooms perfect for entertaining. With the home's pre-war construction, you'll have a classic mix of old West Virginia's historic charm but with spacious rooms, high ceilings and large windows -- especially good for letting in the cool night air (as Glen Jean is on the Fayette Plateau, evenings consistently drop to the mid 60s each night, even when afternoon temps are in the traditional summer ranges of the 70s to 80s.) After driving up the approximately 200 yard long private, tree-lined paved drive to the hilltop, you'll treat yourself to large accommodations including a spacious living room, dining room, TV room and you'll have access to a full size garage to keep your gear out of the elements. And there's no need to keep your music low as the neighbors are out of earshot. Our home was recently featured in an issue of Teen Vogue. Guests can access the entire home with the exception of the basement. I will be available by phone. This property is fairly out of the way (but not too far off of U.S. Route 19) and you will have plenty of open space. We are about 10 miles from the New River, about a mile or so from The Summit Bechtel Reserve and a literal stone's throw from Camp Royal and about 14 miles from Fayetteville and most of the White Water Rafting Outfitters. We are 25 minutes away from Winterplace.
