Wheeling farmhouse description

With large decks on 2 sides and a wrap around porch on the other 2, you can have views of the hills from all directions. A 6 person jacuzzi is off the back porch. There is also an outdoor hot and cold shower. There is a lovely walking path to the top of the hill then circling back to the house.

There are steps into the house at each entrance. A large cook's kitchen, fully equipped for serious cooks, graces the main floor. The large kitchen with cherry cabinets also has an island with a seating bar for 3 as well as an island sink. Stainless appliances and a relaxing corner nook (for a visitor to sit and visit with the cook or for the cook to take a break) complete the kitchen.

Enjoy the great room with a large antique dining table which can fit up to 10 with extender leaves. Leather couches in the great room seating area give elegant comfort. The TV rotates so that you can watch it from any area of the great room or kitchen. There is a DVD player and a variety of DVD's and books.

A large bathroom with 2 sinks, a toilet and a shower/ bathtub is off of the family room area. The washer and dryer are in the first floor bathroom.

Next to the kitchen is a living room with a leather couch, recliner and a single bed pull- out sofa.

Off of the living room is the first floor bedroom. It has a queen size bed, closet and chest of drawers.

On the second floor, find a large master bedroom with one of the original lovely cedar walls exposed. This room has a four poster king size bed, large closet and dresser. The master bath adjoins, featuring a granite counter sink, and a shower and toilet.

The third bedroom has a king bed, closet and dresser. In the fourth, there is a queen bed, and wardrobe.

The first floor has wood floors and the second floor is carpeted. The house is filled with sunlight and modern conveniences yet somehow retains a feel of its 1800's farm roots in spite of its makeover. It feels comfy and elegant at the same time.

                          Mountain Springs Farm is 2 miles from gorgeous Oglebay Park which has all the vacation amenities you could want in a mountain haven: swimming, tennis, skiing, world class golf, walking trails, museums, nature center, zoo, horseback riding, free summer concerts, light shows, paddle boats, miniature golf and much more.

                          Nearby Wheeling Park has many of these activities also, plus a great water slide. Downtown Wheeling has activities including various seasonal fairs and free concerts.

                          It is an hour drive to Cooper's Rock State Park for easy walks, rock climbing and more challenging hikes. You will see magnificent views without equal from Cooper's Rock itself.

                          To drive to Ohiopyle State Park, it takes 1 hour and 20 minutes. There you will find white water rafting and river sports by the lovely artsy town of Ohiopyle, PA.

                          Zip-lining is available 25 minutes from the farm in Moundsville.

                          Wheeling has many attractions aside from Oglebay Resort, including Centre Market with unique, small shops. There are also 2 closeby malls and a Tanger outlet mall about 40 minutes drive towards Pittsburgh. Amish country is closeby in a few directions in Ohio and Maryland. Wheeling is on a narrow panhandle which makes access to all of these states very quick.

                          Wheeling also has live theater. Capitol Theater offers shows and there is a local theatre troupe and a local orchestra.

                          There are great restaurants. Our personal favorites are the Metropolitan Grill, and Coleman's Fish Market. Coleman's has been named repeatedly in national magazines for their great tasting fish.

                          The farm itself can give you peace, beauty, and solitude. The house is surrounded by meadows and rolling mountains of woods on all sides. You will get daily visits from wildlife. If you are a birdwatcher like we are, then bring your binoculars. We have seen so many species of birds that we have lost count. The birds and wildlife usually come for your viewing if you just sit and wait quietly in comfort on the porch. Or seek them out on a nature walk.

                          Relax in the jacuzzi and enjoy the stars. Have a campfire in the pit and roast marshmallows and tell stories. Take long restoring walks on our walking paths.

                          If you want to vacation in a lovely home with every comfort, surrounded by the beauty of nature, yet accessible to many activities close by, this is the place.

                          Year Purchased: 1999

                          About: We bought this property for retirement. This place was once part of a dairy farm. Area seniors have memories of the farm and the kind man who owned it. The house was built in the late 1800's with hand hewn logs which have since been covered with siding. It had some additions which have since been torn off and a new section added to the house which holds the kitchen and great room. Lots of work, planning and money have been poured into the restoration of this house to a lovely and homey place. There are various mountain springs on the property and a lovely springhouse which provides the water (which is purified by UV light).

                          Why Wheeling:
                          This property is on the other side of the mountain from Lee's home while growing up. He loved it as a young man and told the man who owned the property that if he ever sold it to let him know. He did call to let Lee know and we immediately bought it.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
                          This offers the beauty of a home in the country with all the nearby conveniences and activities of a house in the center of a community. The house is located near the middle of 25 acres of rolling hills and woods. It is a bird watcher's heaven and a nature lover's boon. It truly renews the heart to visit there.
