                          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. White Grass Ski Touring Center is about 10 minutes down WV32. Yours is an ideal location for being out of the main stream but within minutes of all three ski areas. Ski them all!

                           

                          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 many, 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.
