Enjoy the beauty of this stunning colonial home with history and charm. Relax and take in the view from the 14-foot-deep front porch with mature hemlocks that provide the right amount of privacy. Built in 1834 the home was originally a two over two structure and has since had additions, making it the beauty it is today. The home features 10-foot ceilings, crown molding, windows with original 19th century glass, pine heart flooring, and thresholds ''worn with hospitality''. As you first walk in, the grand staircase greets you with the living and dining rooms inviting you in the space with decorative fireplace mantels that were crafted by Greenbrier Valley native Conrad Burgess and are a stunning feature. The kitchen was originally a separate structure, true to the building style in the 1830's and now is joined with an addition to the main structure. A second-floor balcony is an extension of the living space and has the same footprint as the large front porch allowing a grand view of Washington Street. The second floor has three bedrooms with a possibility of a fourth, a study, full bathroom and two staircases. The property sets on just under an acre with a level lot directly next door to the historic General Lewis Inn. Just behind the home set two original cabins from the 1830's or even earlier. History is unknown but stepping inside is like stepping back in history. One of the cabins has been updated with electricity making it the ideal space for a workshop. A single car, carriage house style, detached garage is a bonus for giving your vehicle the home it needs as well. Generations of the Sydenstricker family have made this house a home, and is now ready for the next new owners to call it home for many generation to come. Love where you live.
