Welcome to The Hermitage, a historic gem of Jefferson County. Set on 5.25 acres and nestled at the end of a long, tree-lined drive, this enchanting residence boasts Provençal gardens, mature landscaping, and sweeping vistas of the Blue Ridge Mountains, providing unparalleled privacy and sophistication. The Hermitage stands as a testament to local history, once owned by local figures such as the Hite family, Daniel Burnett, and Roger Preston Chew. Its grounds feature an early 18th-century main residence, the original 18th-century stone cottage, a 2-car garage, swimming pool, and tennis court. The stone cottage, a rare 1-1/2 story Georgian of limestone construction dating back to c. 1734, is arguably the oldest structure in West Virginia and a cherished relic of Jefferson County's heritage. The heated pool, surrounded by lush shrubbery and fragrant roses, offers a tranquil retreat on hot summer days, while a pathway leads from the pool to the tennis court, inviting leisurely games under the sun. Throughout the property, expansive hardscaping, multi-level patios, and screened-in porches create idyllic spaces for relaxation and entertainment. The main house captivates with its turn-of-the-century center portico, 3 foot limestone foundation, gable-end chimneys, and newly installed standing seam metal roof. Inside, the foyer welcomes with yellow pine floors, a walnut handrail, and tongue-and-groove wainscoting. The formal living room, adorned with a fireplace and floor-to-ceiling double hung windows, bathes in natural light, while a cozy den exudes warmth with its rich wood paneling and brick fireplace. A spacious dining room, adjacent to the den, spans the width of this wing and is ready to host gatherings with loved ones, while an enclosed screened porch offers a serene escape to the backyard. Just off of the dining room is a convenient full bathroom, adding functionality to the main level. Continuing through the dining room, the kitchen stands within the perimeters of the original 18th century cookhouse. This area features a wood cabinets, exposed beams, and pantry/laundry area. A second screened porch off the kitchen invites al fresco dining overlooking the gardens and stone cottage. Upstairs, three bedrooms await with raised ceilings, wood flooring, and recently restored plaster walls. A renovated oversized full bath crowns the upper level, blending convenience with luxury. This remarkable property is more than a home; it's a living testament to a bygone era. From its resorted and preserved architecture to its storied past, this estate offers a rare opportunity to own a piece of timeless elegance. 24 hours notice required for showings.
