Corley, Jr., the Corley Equestrian Center has captured the imagination of locals for more than a generation with its fanciful round barn, a landmark that's also become a well known venue for weddings and other gatherings. The barn area includes more than 19,160 total feet of roofed space covering working pens, a workshop, a paint shop, and the round barn with 13 stables and a caretaker's apartment. The caretaker's apartment is accessed by a spiral stair and includes a bathroom, bedroom, kitchen, laundry room, and a third-story living room in the cupola. The barnyard area includes 2.5 acres of fenced pasture, including five paddocks, the largest of which is nearly an acre. The property is now often used to stable horses and other livestock and is ideally suited as a horse motel, thanks to its easy interstate expressway access.

DEED AND TAX INFORMATION Deed Information: Deed book 5040, Page 6414; Deed book 570, Page 773; Deed book 5069, Page 1076 Raleigh County, West Virginia Acreage: 17.84 +/- Real Estate Tax ID/Acreage/Taxes: Raleigh County (41), West Virginia Shady Spring District (8) Tax Map 33 parcels 17 and 22.4; Class 3 2022 Real Estate Taxes: $585 SURROUNDING AREA The property is located in south-central West Virginia at Cool Ridge, a rural community highly regarded for its blend of upland forest, farmland, and interstate access. Though the region is legendarily cool in summer, the name is a misspelling of "Coolidge," and the post office established in the 1920s was to be named in honor of President Calvin Coolidge. Though principally an agricultural area, the upland around Cool Ridge and north of Great Flat Top Mountain have increasingly welcomed tourism and residential development, thanks in large part to the location of Interstate 77, which runs north-south through the region. Several exclusive residential subdivisions have been established nearby, including Flat Top Lake to the south and Glade Springs to the north. TRANSPORTATION Interstate expressways I-77 and I-64 converge nearby at Beckley. More than 418,000 vehicles are calculated to travel the interstate system around the city daily. Approximate hourly drive times to regional U.S. cities include Charleston, W.Va., 1.5; Morgantown, W.Va., 3; Columbus, Ohio, 4; Pittsburgh, Pa., 4; Cincinnati, Ohio, 4.5; Charlottesville, Va., 3; Richmond, Va., 4; Winston-Salem, N.C., 2; Charlotte, N.C., 3; and Washington, D.C., 5. The Beckley-Raleigh County Memorial Airport is a 10-minute drive. Just more than an hour's drive farther, Yeager Airport, at Charleston, is the largest and busiest flight-service center in the region, while the Greenbrier Valley Airport, at Lewisburg, provides flight options to Atlanta and Washington. Amtrak passenger stations nearby at Prince and Hinton provide direct rail access to Washington, Chicago, and New York City. HEALTHCARE Three hospitals, including a Veterans Administration Medical Center, serve the Beckley area and numerous clinics and healthcare centers. State medical centers at Charleston and Morgantown are an hour's drive and a three-hour drive from Beckley. Several medical and emergency care clinics serve Beckley, while the area's moderate climate and access to trails, gymnasiums, and athletic centers support healthy living. The nearest hospital to the property, Beckley Appalachian Regional Hospital, is a 15-mile drive. HIGHER EDUCATION Beckley is the higher-education center of southern West Virginia and is notably the site of the southern campus of West Virginia University. The university's Institute of Technology and New River Community & Technical College maintain campuses at Beckley, and Concord University and Bluefield State College courses are accommodated at the Irma Byrd Center at Beaver. Appalachian Bible College is also located nearby at Brad
