Verde Heights For Sale

 Beautiful Verde Heights is on the market as of Monday May 19, 2014. Verde is 11.36 acres of beautiful evergreen (Verde) trees and lush grounds filled with local history. The property belonged to Mr. Azel Meadows who donated the land for Meadows Elementary and owned land all around the Cabell County area. He built the beautiful property around 1916 for his family.

The rose garden was designed for his bride by a landscaper in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Much effort has been put into restoring the gardens to their former beauty by adding period perennials and taming some originals that still grow after all these years.

What a lovely estate. The price is quite incredible for all that you are getting! In our area, you wouldn't get nearly as much for that price!
