This historic home sits atop a knoll on 3.85 acres, in the edge of the small country town of Glenville, WV. The location is about a mile to Glenville State College and less than 2 miles to schools, stores, churches, restaurants, sporting venues, golf course and numerous other conveniences. This historic home was built by Capt. Daniel U. O'Brien who served during the Spanish American War. This home offers a piece of "Americana" with it age and architectural design. There is nearly 2,100 sq. ft. of living space which includes 3 bedrooms, with the master bedroom having a mantle and free standing, gas log fireplace and 1 full bath. Additional rooms include a large parlor with mantle and free standing, gas log fireplace, a living room with a mantle and free standing, gas log fireplace and French doors that open up from a small portico with a woodstove, a foyer with a fireplace mantle and a spacious kitchen / dining area. There is also a room that would make a nice sunporch overlooking the side yard and road area. The home features old woodwork and trim, old doors with some having transoms, and stained glass in the parlor area. The windows are older wood windows with the water glass and storm windows. The owners just installed a brand new forced air and central A/C system, some new ceilings and other small improvements. The home is on city water and sewer. There is a small wraparound porch on one side of the home, complete with a place for a swing from which can get a view of some of the town of Glenville and Glenville State College. Additionally there are 3 other small porches with the home. An added feature is the hand cut stone cellar and cellar house. This structure is in close proximity to the home and has had some improvements lately as well. The cellar house has 4 small rooms, and could be remodeled into an efficiency apartment or would make a great office or guest house. The knoll sitting gives this historic home a private, yet convenient location while still being in town. There are stone pillars that lead to the paved driveway and the white vinyl fence gives tremendous curb appeal to the 3.85 acre parcel. A small runoff stream meanders through the lower edge of the property which is accented by a decorative bridge. The yard offers room for landscaping and shrubbery and a garden area if desired. Sitting a little higher on the knoll behind the home is an ideal area for some picnic benches or campfire circle. A historic home with this much land in a small country, one stoplight town, is a very rare find. This is your chance to own a piece of Americana. This rare and historic home can be yours for the reduced price of $159,000.00.
