The Diamond House is a serene modern retreat deep in the woods of West Virginia on 23 acres, but still only 1.5 hrs from the D.C. area. The Diamond House has vaulted ceilings, hardwood floors, and is filled with windows that provide access to views that stretch for miles and natural light throughout the day. Amazing sunsets. A perfect retreat from the hustle of the city.
Designed by award-winning architect Aaron Poritz ( the Diamond House is a modern, minimalist interpretation of a cabin in the woods. Just completed in 2016, the Diamond House was built facing the southwest so light pours in through varied-sized windows creating angles and shadows that reflect the house's unique, angular design. The open kitchen, living and dining room space upstairs is the perfect spot to gaze at the view over the Warden Lake valley. Downstairs bedrooms stay cool in the summer and open up on to a patio and garden. Two bedrooms with queen size beds. One kids room with bunk beds.
Located in the Lost River area of WV. Filled with great country towns, beautiful mountains and valleys. There are farmers markets, hiking, canoeing, kayaking, swimming, fishing and access to multiple state parks and national forests and recreation areas.
