A stately two-story home, Eastgate lies on the edge of Lewisburg city limits on East Washington Street. Built in 1921, the spacious 3000 +/- square foot neoclassical manor features detailed craftsmanship and signature splashes of vibrant color by designers Carleton Varney and Dickie Chilton. Seamlessly blending old and new, Eastgate is a one-of-a-kind home that has been lovingly restored and meticulously maintained.
A covered front entry graced by brass carriagehouse lamps opens into a foyer with black-and-white polished marble tiles and a grand staircase. The large living room features a gas log fireplace, mirrored alcove, two crystal chandeliers, and plush carpeting loomed exclusively for the room by craftsmen in Dublin, Ireland. Just off the living room a large sunroom with colorful built-in window seats offers access to the yard via French doors and a covered brick portico. A wood-paneled den with built-in bookcases and a gas fireplace provides another, more private, setting on the main floor.
The spacious kitchen is a cooks delight, and also lends itself well to entertaining. A built-in Sub-Zero refrigerator occupies the same wall as a Thermador double oven. A large gas range and microwave are three steps away, and as well as a dishwasher and trash compactor. Two sinks one in an eat-at island with a polished granite countertop and another retrofitted in an old apothecary cabinet with wood countertop provide ample workspace. Recessed ceiling lights and a recycled pub lantern add atmosphere, and a wine pantry with built-in racks makes bottle storage handy. At the far end of the large kitchen a breakfast area offers another eat-in option, and French doors open onto a covered porch overlooking the spacious back yard.
A doorway at the working end of the kitchen leads to the formal dining room, with gas fireplace, crystal chandelier, oak floor, and hand-painted touches.
Upstairs four rooms serve as either three bedrooms and a laundry area, or four bedrooms. The bedrooms continue the homes signature artistic touches, with four-poster antique beds, a hand-painted wardrobe, and designer wallpaper and carpeting. One bedroom opens onto a large balcony overlooking the west and north sides of the property and a small gazebo. Two large bathrooms are located on this floor, and a half-bath on the main floor.
The exterior of the house features a slate shingled roof originally on the home of former West Virginia Governor Hulett Smith. A detached two-car garage with the same slate roof, and a copper cupola and weathervane, connects to the house via a covered stone walkway. Two rooms in back of the garage provide space for a workshop and/or lawn and garden tool storage.
A cozy two-bedroom, two-bath guest cottage with a cedar-shake roof and cupola occupies the northeast corner of the property, and offers ample parking. Like the manor house, the cottage is professional decorated. Its many unique touches include hand-painted folk art murals and stenciling, 1212 ceramic tile flooring, and recessed ceiling lights. The modern kitchen has a deep sink, dishwasher, garbage disposal and trash compactor. An extra room off the kitchen offers possibilities for a den, a home library or a music or craft room.
The manor house, guest cottage and 8.5-acres currently constitute one estate, but the property has been surveyed in three parcels. Its size and proximity to picture-perfect historic downtown Lewisburg make this an exceptional residential and/or investment opportunity for the discerning buyer.
