From the brick sidewalk to the manicured yard, this 1759 beauty boasts all you would expect from a grand centuries old home. Known as the Abraham Shepherd Home (Captain Abraham Shepherd of the Revolutionary war), it is one of the most distinguished homes in the oldest town in West Virginia. ***One step inside the grand and inviting foyer gives hints to the historic details and charm that have been well preserved like the original heart pine flooring, wide trim and deep window sills. The library at the front of the home await your personal collection. There is plenty of room for entertaining in the expansive and sunny living room with lime plaster walls that leads to the lovingly maintained brick patio and colonial perennial garden. The updated gourmet kitchen with stainless appliances, gas range with exhaust hood, granite counters and locally sourced cherry wood floor is in keeping with the character of the home. The gracious and generous formal dining room features a silk-screened wallpaper and a border made from photo plates brought from Padua, Italy by Ira Glackens (son of William Glackens) who lived in the home from 1973-1990. The gorgeous and gracious staircase continues to the 3rd floor attic access. ***The original floors continue throughout the second level , home to 5 spacious and welcoming bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms and sitting room. There are five fireplace mantles (fireboxes are not currently in operation) in the home. The home sits on a third of acre where you can sit under the shade of the mature trees and enjoy privacy from the street and the sound of the creek and the view of the Thomas Shepherd grist wheel.
