They don't make them like this anymore. That's not just a colloquial saying when it comes to the Abraham Shepherd House in downtown Shepherdstown, West Virginia. The home maintains a spot on the National Registry of Historic Places, as the son of Shepherdstown's founder and a Captain in the U.S. Army was the original owner. With a combination of the original architecture and construction, mixed with modern amenities, and a generous history, this property has withstood the test of time.
Built in 1759, the Abraham Shepherd House has 5 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms which meet the modern buyer's needs. Original features such as the heart of pine wood floors, silkscreen wallpaper created with original plates from Italy, and a structure which dates prior to the establishment of the town itself, the oldest town in West Virginia, are some of the beautiful details which you cannot recreate in modern construction. Yet, combined with modern touches such as the updated kitchen with granite counter-tops, tiled separate shower, jetted tub, and stainless steel appliances, you don't feel like you've been blasted back in time.
Many of the rooms are quite large and very versatile. There are several large closets for storage, built-in bookshelving in the library, an elegant spiral staircase which feins a third upper floor, original charcoal painting technique in the family room, accents of exposed brick interior surfaces, high ceilings throughout the living spaces, and a cellar which can be utilized as, well, an old cellar!
Set aside the oldest gristmill in West Virginia and a short distance from Shepherd University, The Thomas Shepherd House, features a great outdoor space for gathering on pleasant days. A natural wood privacy fence shields from prying eyes of pedestrian traffic traveling along the brick sidewalk which border the property. Lush landscaping and an assortment of trees
