97 ACRE SECLUDED FARM $269,000. GREENBRIER COUNTY, WEST VIRGINIA *MINERALS INCLUDED* GPS N 38.03613 W 80.47537 taxes 2018 $ 336.88 This beautiful, secluded farm is the perfect acreage for homesteaders, small farmers,"back to the landers" or those seeking recreation or solitude. The property has excellent access from a small state paved lane, down a driveway shared with one neighbor. The shared part of the driveway runs through the woods on a ridge above the property and in no way compromises the privacy of the building site below or the farm as a whole. The roads are in very good condition.
The land consists of varied and interesting terrain from open fields to deep woods. Some of the hillsides would provide excellent places for root cellars or underground shelters. There are approximately 20 open acres, 5+ tillable, the remainder pasture, with very rich, loamy soil. Extensive woods could provide timber for building and a never-ending supply of fuel. Throughout the property are seasonal streams that run boldly in the spring.
A "story book" style house with exterior completed awaits you along with temporary electricity for completing the interior. The construction (completed fall 2018) is high quality with attention to detail. Walls are 2×6 construction with a steep roof and 40 yr. architectural shingles. Other improvements to the property include a well and phone line to the utility pole. There is a springhouse with an everflowing spring, old corncrib with electricity and water hydrant, and rehabilitated barn. A very accessible lane winds its way to the back fields. The farm has been lovingly cared for over the years. This is not an abandoned property.
The location of the farm at the base of Cold Knob Mountain has provided for beautiful, rich soil deposits. The property is believed to be the site of a civil war skirmish, and many arrowheads have been unearthed in the gardens. Mineral rights are included and have not been leased. There are no right of ways through the farm other than the shared driveway, electric and phone lines. It is extremely private. A state maintained paved road leads to the driveway, with miles of gravel roads beyond for adventuring. The property is an easy 30 minute drive to interstate 64 and 10 minutes more to Lewisburg for shopping, entertainment, hospital and airport. There is a medical clinic 5 miles away in the village of Williamsburg, along with a fire station. Southern WV has a wonderful climate with mild summers, plenty of rain, and occasional snow in winter.
