The most unique parcel of land in Charleston and surrounding area.

Historically significant.

Have your own private park!!! This property was the cover story of the state magazine in 1967 proposing that it would be made into a park. I have a copy of the magazine. It ultimately was kept in the families estate.

16 beautiful secluded acres that sits in a hollow 3/4 of a mile off the main road. There is a beautiful creek running thru property, with a 12 foot waterfall, where a grist mill was built in the 1800's. Only some gearing and cut stone remain. The falls run into a natural "swimm'n hole" about 8ft. deep and the size of a small community pool, which freezes over during winter for ice skating! Several large rock outcroppings and overhangs to explore and to go "bouldering". Sets up well for zip line construction.

This property would be listed in waterfalls of WV books, if it were not privately owned.

Many home sites available and well suited for development, gated community B&B or private estate, retreat. A 2000 foot road was made down into the property using ti-par the whole way. Three inches of #3 stone then three inches of crusher run was put down. I made it this way in case it would ever be paved. A small hydroelectric plant could also be built that would provide enough energy to sell back to power company.

Five minutes to the largest WV airport, seven minutes to the capitol complex, and the intersection of three interstates, 64, 77, and 79. There is a man sitting right beside the top of the falls for size reference. A tree house for adults, built by Jonathan Fairoaks of Living tree, sits in three trees overlooking the falls. House is wired for electric, there is a sleeping loft and a nice deck in front and side which affords wonderful views. Additional acreage available.

  • Fraud & Scam Awareness
    Unfortunately, there are people that will use internet sites like to run all manner of scams on users. We do all that we can to prevent the willful misuse of our platform, however; every day, the scams get more and more sophisticated. We ask that our users be cognizant of the risk and review the following basic ways to recognize and avoid being scammed.
  • Recognizing and Avoiding Scams:

    • Use secure, traceable transactions when making payments - Do not pay a deposit by wire transfer, prepaid money card, gift card, or other non-traditional payment method. Also, refuse to make "overpayments" and never enter into "handshake" deals without a contract.
    • Don't accept suspect cashier/certified checks or money orders - Banks will process and cash the fakes, then hold you responsible.
    • Never give out financial or personally identifiable information - This includes banking and credit card information, your birthdate, Social Security/Social Insurance Numbers, PayPal account etc.
    • Suspicious communications - Watch for parties communicating using poor grammar, spelling or those who send nonsensical messages. Be wary of parties that are only willing to text/email and those that will never speak on the phone or that refuse to meet in person. Generally these people will claim to be "travelling" and unavailable to talk or located in a foreign country and unable to speak other than via text or email.
    • Deals Too Good to be True - If the list price is obviously too low, or the terms are too generous as compared to the market, it’s likely a scam.
    • Don’t be pressured to act immediately - Scammers typically try to make you think a listing is in high demand in order to push you into immediate action without consulting family, friends, or financial advisors. Say no to high pressure sales tactics.
  • Who Should I notify about fraud or scam attempts?
