    Description

    HISTORIC COAL BARON E.E. WHITE MANSION Overlooking the village of Glen White, the historic former residence of coal baron E.E. White surveys the valley in which he established one of the state's most progressive mining concerns. Though the Industrial Revolution has long since passed, the opulence that exemplified the high-water mark of the age remains everywhere apparent in this home. Little expense was spared in its construction. A ballroom, golden-oak woodwork, and a colonnaded portico are among the hallmarks of the residence.Christened ''Maplecrest,'' the Colonial Revival landmark sits on a knoll surrounded by towering maples; planted by designers to shade the lawn in summer, they ensure comfort through the warmest months.Throughout the property, the attributes of gracious living are in evidencea gazebo, a lattice-work arbor, stone-walled garden terraces. Outdoor-living amenities such as a patio with a hot-tub have been added more recently, as have practical outbuildings such as a barn and kennel. More than a century after its construction, the residence remains in a state of near-perfect preservation while the village of Glen White has gained recognition as one of the most intact historic coal-mining towns in the state. Deer and wild turkey roam the hillsides where miners once trudged, and a sixty-acre vineyard sprawls across the heights on Glen View Road. Though it adjoins the suburban Beckley area, the property backs onto the vast forest that extends into Kentuckya paradise for hikers, bikers, hunters, kayakers, and ATV enthusiasts. Location is a particular advantage here. Homeowners benefit from rural quiet as well as easy access to nearby Beckley, the commercial center of southern West Virginia, a drive of approximately 15 minutes away. Convenient retail centers are also located at Sophia and MacArthur, a drive of only five and 10 minutes, respectively. The home provides proximity to outdoor recreation amenities and is fewer than five minutes from a recently completed section of the scenic Coalfields Expressway, which is expected to boost tourism throughout the region. Hiking, biking, hunting, kayaking, and ATV touring are already growing increasingly popular in the area. Six miles to the southwest, Burning Rock Off-Road Park continues to expand to meet the demand for ATV touring and outdoor recreation. Winterplace ski area and Twin Falls Resort State Park are a drive of only 20 minutes away, and the New River Gorge National River is only 30 minutes away. Excellent rock climbing locations are only minutes away in the New River Gorge area.
