Ski: Timberline Ski area is about 1 mile from the property, just outside the gated entrance to Old Timberline. Canaan Valley Ski area is another 5 minutes down WV32.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: I run a small software company called Apollo Matrix in DC and raise 3 kids with my wife Sienna. I am a design hack who appreciates good design in things natural and man-made. And I enjoy pretty much all mountain sports.

Why the Owner Chose Davis:
Canaan Valley is a pristine alpine setting with exciting weather, wildlife, mountain streams, conifers, rocky landscapes, a clear sky and all the mountain sports I love. Canaan reminds me of the West. And it's only 3 hours from DC.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This is one of the most valuable lots in Timberline for good reason. And according to more than a few, the coolest house in the Valley... Large indoor common spaces with epic views of mountains, lakes, meadow and wildlife. This is Canaan Valley experienced to the fullest. Great family hiking from the house -- much of it within view of the house. Skiing, Dolly Sods Wilderness and much more within minutes.
