Pond House Architect-designed contemporary luxury home overlooking spring-fed pond on 7.44 acres. 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, gourmet kitchen, library, many special touches. An exceptionally beautiful home in a tranquil country setting, this stylish, comfortable 3-level home features walnut flooring, attractive paneling milled from trees on the property, a cozy living room with a wood-burning fireplace, a library/office, a main level master suite, 3 upper-level bedrooms with 2 additional baths, an attic-level crafts/game room, a 2½-car garage and a large stocked pond. A winding driveway leads through the property, located on the edge of the Greenbrier County town of Alderson. Sited overlooking the pond, stocked with koi, bass, carp and blue gill, the cedar-sided home has an entry with a stone terrace affording views of this exceptional water feature. The entry hall provides a first look at the attractive walnut flooring used extensively throughout the home, and leads to the living room, where an eye-catching stone fireplace adds warmth. The owners have chosen to use track lighting in this room and many others, which works well in this setting and lends more interest than standard recessed lighting. Just off the living room, the walnut-paneled library/office features three full walls of built-in bookcases and beautiful views of the pond. The spacious kitchen has stainless-steel and butcher block counters and two stainless-steel sinks with disposals. The cabinetry incorporates pull-out drawers for easy access. Clever decorative-but-useful touches include a metal Craftsman tool storage unit repainted and repurposed as drawers for kitchen utensils, and a vintage storage cabinet from a dental office given similar treatment. Appliances include a Bosch side-by-side refrigerator-freezer, a GE electric range with a hooded vent, a Bosch dishwasher and a Panasonic microwave oven. The walls in the kitchen and adjoining breakfast room are finished in vertical shiplap siding accented with thin white decorative stripes between the joints, giving these spaces a playful, casual look. Large floor-to-ceiling picture windows in the breakfast room overlook the pond. This room opens to a small screened porch with a ceiling fan, creating an ideal spot for watching the sunrise over the water while enjoying morning coffee. The wood-paneled dining room between the kitchen and living room features an entire wall of built-in cabinetry, handy for storing tableware, glassware, serving dishes, table linens and miscellaneous family heirlooms. The master suite, which overlooks the pond, has walnut flooring and white paneled walls, giving the rooms a light, airy feel. The master bath has similar walls, a tiled shower, a pedestal sink, and walnut flooring. A mud room and adjacent laundry room and half-bath are also on the main level. There are two laundry areas in the home, upstairs and downstairs. The main level laundry has GE stackable appliances and a deep utility sink, mounted low enough to serve as a convenient bathtub for the family dog. The mud room exits to a brick patio enclosed by a picket fence. A staircase with walnut treads leads to the second level, which has three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a large laundry room. Two of the bedrooms are corner room with four windows. One bedroom faces the front yard and pond, and the other faces the back yard. These rooms are similar in size and both have double closets. The third bedroom is a bit smaller and has a single closet. One of the corner bedrooms opens to the laundry room and a private bath with a shower-tub, a pedestal sink, horizontal shiplap paneling and walnut flooring. The laundry room includes a Maytag washer, a Samsung dryer and a linen closet. The other two bedrooms share a bath with a shower, a pedestal sink and ceramic tile flooring. A pine staircase leads from the second level to the finished attic, which has manufactured wood flooring. This cozy space has been used as a bedroom for visiting grandchildren, but could just as readily serve a crafts area or game room, with handy built-in storage shelves. Natural wood paneling and earth tones are used extensively in the home, creating a warm, comfy, restful ambience. The attached garage has two full bays and an additional half-bay, perfect for storing a lawn tractor and yard equipment. The home is sited on 7.44 acres. Mixed hardwoods and evergreens dot the large property, essentially a private estate. Underground utilities help protect the property from power outages when tree limbs fall. The home is located in Alderson, a quiet riverfront town with a seasonal farmer’s market, a walking path along the river and a renowned Fourth of July celebration. Alderson is a half-hour from the Greenbrier County seat of Lewisburg. Once voted the Coolest Small Town in America, picturesque Lewisburg has shopping, fine dining and year-round entertainment. Annual events include the State Fair of West Virginia, Taste of Our Towns, the Lewisburg Chocolate Festival and the Lewisburg Literary Festival. The Greenbrier Valley Theatre, West Virginia’s official state theatre, presents year-round live theatre, and well-known and rising stars appear on stage and in outdoor concerts at Carnegie Hall. The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, 40 minutes away, is one of the world’s top luxury resorts. Set on 11,000 acres, the resort’s offerings include multiple golf courses, a spa, a tennis complex, a private casino, over 50 boutique shops, an art colony and a dozen restaurants. The nearby Greenbrier River draws anglers and kayakers, and the 77-mile Greenbrier River Trail paralleling the river is popular with hikers and cyclists. Snowshoe Ski Resort, the largest ski complex in the Mid-Atlantic States, is a scenic 2-hour drive on country roads to the north. The Greenbrier Valley Airport, a half-hour away, offers daily direct flights to Charlotte. This beautiful residence was designed by local architect E. L. Roach and constructed in 2012-13. While it is a cliché to say a property must be seen to be appreciated, that is very definitely the case with this exceptional home. Location 216 E.
