Almost Heaven has windows through-out so that you may enjoy the outdoors while indoors. There is a beautiful view of the valley from the deck and kitchen windows. The white cabinets and natural red oak floors invite you to kick off your shoes and relax. The kitchen is fully equipped with an oven, cook top, microwave, dishwasher, and refrigerator with ice maker. The well water is super refreshing. The master bedroom has a queen bed, tall chest of drawers and chair. The sun room/2nd bedroom which we like to call the bird's nest, because it has windows on all 3 sides has a single bed and over sized chair - a perfect place to read/journal. There are double doors which connect the sun room to the living room which can be opened to make it part of the living space which has a sofa and 2 side chairs, coffee table, fireplace, bookshelves, games, puzzles, and CD player. High ceiling fans circulate the air. The bath has an over sized tub/shower. The wrap around deck has a round table with 2 chairs, 4 directors chairs and 4 Adirondack chairs.
The lower level is set up as an efficiency apartment with a sofa, easy chair, 2 twin beds and a double bed, bath and kitchen. The kitchen has a stove and refrigerator, but is not fully equipped. TV receives local channels. If you wish to watch a movie, please feel free to choose from our DVD library. The washer and dryer are located on the lower level. Double doors lead out onto the lower deck where you will find charcoal grill which is to be used in the open space to the west of the house.
House has a well and septic system.

About the owner: We live in a metropolican area and retreat to our country home to escaped the the hassle and bustle of city life. As we crest the mountain ridges on the way, our worries and cares seem to disappear and a deep sense of relaxation floods over us. As a former military family we kid each other by saying, we keep the Civil War alive. One of us grew up on a northern farm and the other in a southern city. It just goes to show, opposites do attract. We have two grown sons, dubbed - the sons of thunder. We have traveled much and still seek to discover and try something knew, which we continue to find in WV.
Why the Owner Chose Baker, WV, USA:
One day while looking at property in WV we came across an estate auction sign at a gas station. After meeting with the autioneer, walking the property line and looking over the various out buildings, we fell in love with the possibilities this property held. A few weeks later we stood on the steps of the county court house and bid on the property. To our delight, we won. A year later we broke ground to build the house and this past year refurbished the largest shed. Some day we hope to retire in WV. Until then, we invite you to enjoy our home.
