The Most Expensive Homes in Virginia!

Hi everyone! It’s the last Friday of March! Are all of you excited for April? It’s spring break this weekend, and I hope all of you are headed someplace nice or at least able to appreciate the beautiful spring weather.

Anyway before we say hello to the weekend, I’m dropping by again to feature Part Two of my Most Expensive Homes posts. This week I’m featuring the state of Virginia and their roster of their most expensive homes, gathered from Zillow. Let’s get this started!

The Most Expensive Homes in West Virginia!

Happy Friday, everyone! How’s your week been so far? I can’t wait for the weekend myself, but before the day ends I thought I’d share with you guys some interesting information I gathered on Zillow on the top three current most expensive homes in West Virginia! While not all of us are millionaires, it’s certainly fun to look and admire the homes of the rich!

Landing at No. 3 is 2 Quarry Rdg in Charleston, WV. For $2,450,000, this 5 bedroom, 7.5 bathroom home is yours for the taking. It has lovely hardwood floors, an infinity pool and even its own media room! Classic with a contemporary kick, this is a sweet home indeed.

No. 2 on the list is 920 Newton Rd, also in Charleston, WV. For $3,350,000, you can own this 6 bed, 6.5 bath home constructed back in 1923. It’s certainly an authentic English tudor style brick home with history! If you’re into the more traditional, old world feel, then this could be the dream house for you.

And taking the top prize is 319 S Pierpont Rd in Morgantown, WV. It’s on the market right now for a whopping $4,200,000! It’s a 5 bedroom, 5 bathroom home on over 3 and a half million square feet! Now that’s plenty of roaming ground right there! It’s a lovely English country estate complete with the floating staircase, Italian marble floors, and mahogany doors. Included in the estate is a tennis court, pool house, a barn, and a 4-car garage. Now that’s a rad pad.

A History lesson!

Hi everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend! I was busy working this whole week (not fun!) but with hard work comes payoff, so that’s always good motivation to keep me going!

Anyway today I thought I’d feature Berkeley Springs, one of the biggest and loveliest towns over here in West Virginia. As a fun fact/little history tidbit, Berkeley Springs (originally named Bath–after the English city!) first became popular because of George Washington. At the time when West Virginia was still a part of Virginia, Berkeley Springs/Bath was a popular destination for the state’s social elite because of its springs. George Washington’s half-brother, Lawrence, was ill at the time and often visited the town in the hope that the springs would improve his health. The mineral springs were believed to have medicinal benefits, attracting many Aboriginal Americans and Europeans to the town.

George Washington’s bathtub! The real deal! Pretty cool, huh?

For this same reason, the town’s population increased during and immediately after the American Revolutionary War. Wounded soldiers and victims flocked to the town for the springs and its purported healing qualities. Because of this, Bath became a bit of a ‘wild’ town where drinking and gambling became prevalent.

Bath changed its name to Berkeley Springs in 1802 when the Virginia postal system was established. There was already a Bath, Virginia registered, so the town came to be known as Berkeley Springs, named after the colonial governor Norborne Berkeley. Today the town is still officially named Bath, although it is more commonly referred to by the locals as Berkeley Springs.

And there you have it! A little history lesson about the town! Maybe I should become a History teacher or something…

Here’s to an awesome week ahead!

Curtain call!

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend! I had a pretty interesting Friday last week when I went to the Apollo Civic Theatre here in Martinsburg! I watched a show called “All I Really Need To Know I Learned in Kindergarten”, which was really fun and entertaining.

A production from the Apollo Theatre in Martinsburg

Based on a book, Kindergarten is an everyday story about several characters–a young schoolboy, a man who dreams of flying, a mother at a wedding, to even a modern-day Greek philosopher. The show is really interesting and heartwarming, and I recommend it if you’re up for a night on the town. Funny thing is, in the middle of it there was an act called “Howard”, and I ended up running into two good friends (and old clients) of mine. A really interesting night all in all!

If you guys want to check out other productions, you can visit Apollo Theatre’s website here for more information on shows, schedules, and ticket prices.

Ghost Tours of Harpers Ferry!

As Halloween is just around the corner, I thought I’d share an interesting “spooky” attraction if you happen to visit Harpers Ferry in West Virginia!

It’s called the “Ghost Tours of Harpers Ferry”, and it’s the oldest ghost tour in America! It’s a walking tour around the Lower Town area of Harpers Ferry where you get to visit places and buildings with reported ghostly activity over the years. A guide also shares the legends and history of the town. Sounds like a spooky treat for the whole family!

I’ve heard nothing but positive reviews about this tour. It’s even been ranked as the #1 attraction in Harpers Ferry by tripadvisor.com! If you’d like to read more information (schedules, pricing, etc.), visit the official website here.

What will you guys be doing this Halloween?
