The attractive landscaping by Riverbend Nursery includes a row of crabapple trees lining the driveway, boxwoods, dogwoods and Japanese maples. The 30+ acres surrounding the home is a pleasing blend of mature forest with walnuts, oaks, maples and rolling pasture seeded with native grasses. The mixture of Atlantic White cedar and Autumn Olive bushes create thickets and soft edges between field and forest, making excellent wildlife and songbird habitat. Some of the trees gracing the estate are well over 100 years old and harken back to the 1800s when Greenbrier County was still a part of Virginia. The rolling pasture is suitable for those wishing to raise horses or other livestock. Of course, the night skies are nearly pitch black so star gazing and planet observation can be a source of year round enjoyment. White tailed deer, foxes, hawks, black bear and turkeys have all been seen on the property, which is less than 10 minutes from downtown Lewisburg. Even though nature is at the doorstep, so is shopping, fine dining, live music at Carnegie Hall, performances at the Greenbrier Valley Theatre, and an 8-screen multiplex cinema. Lewisburg, surprisingly cosmopolitan for a town of 3800 people, is home to a medical school, a community college, a $3 million library, two annual food festivals, and a literary festival. The renowned Greenbrier resort is in nearby White Sulphur Springs, and Snowshoe Mountain Ski resort is less than a 2-hour drive through pristine mountain scenery. A contemporary country estate with comfort and elegance, Barkalin Country Estate is a perfect place to call home and an outstanding place to entertain friends and family.
