An exceptional home in the South Park neighborhood of Morgantown, West Virginia
When the current owners purchased their South Park home in 1985, they thought it was “The One.” Now, more than 35 years later, they know it was a perfect choice. They look back with fond memories of entertaining friends, raising a family, walking to and from downtown Morgantown, playing in the back yard, and spending evenings on the front porch admiring the twinkling lights of the city below.
“There are so many things we’ve loved about this beautiful place,” says homeowner Katherine K. “It’s a piece of Morgantown history. The woodwork is gorgeous. The windows are enormous. The layout is spacious. The yard is so big you can do anything you like in it. The possibilities inside and out are just endless.”
Soon after moving in, Katherine and her husband redesigned the kitchen, adding the greenhouse window that is now a focal point of the home. They finished the attic as well, turning it into a playroom for littles and gathering spot for teens.
“The attic could easily be repurposed into an impressive home office, a luxurious master suite, or so many other types of spaces,” she says.
As the owners’ needs have changed over the years, the four bedrooms throughout have served as office spaces, exercise rooms, and TV rooms. The deck located off the dining room became a favorite spot, with the expansive back yard (the property is a double lot) providing privacy for outdoor enjoyment.
