This custom built home (3,200 sq. ft.) is a design featured in the 1992 Southern Living magazine Ideal Home. The featured article and building plans are available for any serious purchaser. The home was built by Frank Rines, a well know local contractor, who has a reputation for excellent workmanship. He is available to share any information anyone might want about how the home was built. We have lived in the house for 16 years, raised two children and entertained all their friends.
The entrance level has real oak floors with a great room and fireplace built by a master mason, Nelson Terry, two bedrooms with adjoining bath, half bath, and a master suite with a spacious bath including a Jacuzzi tub, separate shower and walk-in closets. The kitchen has an electric Jenn Aire stovetop with custom built oak cabinets, complete with appliances including a freezer, since there is plenty of room for home gardening.
The home is handicapped accessible, and has a 2/3 basement that has a wide open spacious gathering area (a Fisher wood-burning stove for a cozy warm atmosphere) sufficient for a pool table, pin ball table, or a lounge area. The basement, additionally, has a library, office/bedroom, storage room and a full bath. The entire home has central heat and air (heat pump). All the windows are thermopane Peachtree or Anderson.
There is a glass enclosed sunroom which opens onto a wide, full-length deck allowing great southern exposure and views of the mountains. There are also double doors going from the master suite to the deck. Additionally, there is a covered front porch entry facing the mountain to the north allowing you to watch the seasonal changes of nature.
There is an attached double garage and a very nice second-floor efficiency apartment with a kitchenette, open living area, bedroom and bath, abundant attic storage. Excellent guest quarters with the best views on the property.
Lee County is as far west as you can be and still live in Virginia. It is located in the heart of central Appalachia, which means that culture and mountain traditions of music, family, good food and moderate weather are the norm.
The timberland, which ranges in age from 30 to 90 years, abounds with deer, turkey, squirrels, rabbits, a multitude of birds and sighting of bear tracks.
A complete Natural History of the property was done in 2003 by Anna Hess a noted naturalist. Her report, which includes her daily field notes for one year are available for anyone who might be seriously interested in the property. The study includes the geology, soils, watersheds, history, weather, plant communities, alien invasive species, fungi, lichens, and animals. Because of isolation, Lee County and this property are home to a significant number of endangered species. Additionally, the property has a cave that has been mapped by the Old Dominon University Geology Department.
The spring fed pond - harboring golden and rainbow trout, frogs, and the usual pond life - is a real delight, and very relaxing after a stressful day of work.
There are two old chestnut oak log barns and there is enough pasture land to make possible any livestock interest - horses, goats, or cattle that you might desire, and a great place for children to roam and play.
We believe if you want a piece of heaven, a quiet community, a lovely home and country living at its best, then this property might be for you. It truly is a special place. A trail goes over the top ridge that provides horse riders, hikers, etc. access to miles of trails that connect the Daniel Boone National Forest with the Commonwealth of Virginia Karlan Park and the Cumberland Gap National Park.
The county has an agricultural base of cropland, growing a variety of field crops, hay meadows and pastureland supporting the local cattle industry and additionally there are lots of woodland and timber boundaries to sustain the local wildlife. In recent years, there has also been an increase in the number of farmers growing organic produce for the local and regional markets.
The owners will be happy to share any other particulars or answer any questions that you may have pertaining to their property.
