Classic Exterior with Modern Amenities Make this Expertly Remodeled Beauty a Rare Find
If you covet the cozy charm and clean lines of a historic home but need the luxury and comfort that comes with a modern remodeling, this one-of-a-kind home nestled in the heart of Cheat Lake should be at the top of your list.
Cable television is fraught with goggle-wearing reality stars swinging sledge-hammers at drywall. If you watch long enough, it may seem like the only way to live in an updated older home is to lace up your work boots, put on some gloves, and do the remodeling yourself.
For the lucky ones, however, finding an older home that has been well-maintained and professionally remodeled may be the most efficient way to get everything you want in a home—without even breaking a sweat. After all, the rising demand (and cost) of home remodeling means it could take years to get an older home completely upgraded just how you want it.
But what if you were lucky enough to find an older home with space to spare and all the modern amenities you expect, ready to welcome you home. Doesn’t chilling in your new hot tub sound better than scraping paint off an old floor on your hands and knees?
A newly remodeled farmhouse welcomes you home
When a 100-year-old house is remodeled without losing any of its country charm, you’ve found something special. Lovingly custmized over the last 45 years, this century-old farmhouse just northeast of downtown Morgantown boasts 2 baths, 3 bedrooms, and 3,000 square feet of space that make it ideal for hosting friends, making new memories, and nurturing your artistic side.
Of course, utility is also important, and you’ll find it in this home’s modern amenities, including the laundry room’s spacious, up-to-date design, a second full bathroom, and even a second entertainment area. Want to avoid unnecessary maintenance costs? This home comes with new flooring, a new roof, new windows, and a powerful new Mitsubishi split-system heating, ventilation, and cooling (HVAC) system that maintains comfort wherever you are inside this special home.
You’ll feel like you belong here
Imagine setting up an easel in your expansive yard, making a gourmet meal in your remodeled kitchen, or relaxing in the open concept living room area adjacent to a modern kitchen. You’ll love how the custom gingerbread woodwork brings the exterior to life, the crisp design schemes of the interior, and the convenient location of this charming home.
One of the first things you’ll notice as you step inside is how open and warm it feels, from the light wood tones of the remodeled flooring to the soaring ceilings of a tri-level solarium. The remodeled kitchen is a light-filled space with custom details like a farmhouse sink and bronze accents tying the room together, including a fully-modern cooking range and an abundance of adjustable light. Instead of cookie-cutter rooms, each area has notable character—from the blue pastel walls, cool white trim, and bricked up fireplace of the master bedroom to the spa-like atmosphere, standalone tub, and well-lit mirrors of the adjacent bathroom. It even comes with a new hot tub!
Step outside and you’ll still feel at home thanks to a timeless flat-stone patio complete with a stone seating wall and a small firepit perfect for hosting anything from a s’mores party to late night storytelling. After all, you’ll be surrounded by a large, gently sloping yard enclosed within hardwood trees that guard the rural privacy of this home — even though it’s mere moments from downtown Morgantown.
Centrally located, without the traffic
Speaking of location, open the door of your detached two-car garage and you can be on I-68 is under a mile, meaning that spending an afternoon boating Cheat Lake, hiking Cooper’s Rock State Forest, or cooling your heels at Chestnut Ridge State Park is as easy as packing a picnic basket. Prefer a tailgate and a ticket for the fifty-yard line? You’re in luck, because this one-of-a-kind house is just over 4 miles from Milan Puskar Stadium, home of the West Virginia University Mountaineers football team. If you need a little quiet time instead, it’s also the same distance from the hemlock and hardwood oasis of the West Virginia Botanic Garden.
From shopping to schools, hiking to boating, night life to fine dining, this location offers both public fun and private comfort, making it one of the best places to live in the Morgantown area. If this sounds like the kind of once in a lifetime find you’ve been waiting to discover, don’t wait any longer. Call White Diamond Real Estate Broker Melissa Hornbeck today at 240.727.5830!
