Million Dollar Homes: 25 Miramichi Trail

High in the hills of West Virginia, overlooking Cheat Lake is 25 Miramichi Trail.

The home owners spent two years building the home to perfection. It's listed at $1.9 million, sits on 12 acres of land, and is not only aesthetically pleasing, but energy efficient.

"You would think in a house this size, this open, but our gas bill and our electric bill are very very conservative," said Lynn Hawkins, the home owner.

Clair Hawkins continued, "before we built this house, our former home was 3,200 square feet and this a little over 9,100 square feet and the utilities were more at the former house.

The house has a finished basement that leads to the backyard. There's also a custom built bar, fit for anyone wanting a drink while playing a little pool.

"All the cabinetry in the home is custom built here in town by a local craftsman," said Anna Marie Stephens, a Howard Hanna Real Estate Agent. "Everything from the kitchen cabinets, bathroom cabinets, all the build ins in the kitchen, dining room, family room, bathrooms."

The main floor has a formal dining room, family room, and a side room perfect for overlooking the Cheat River.

All of those rooms equal a very open floor plan, and if you want to head up to the second floor you can always take the elevator.

The second floor has five bedrooms each with their own full bathroom. There's also three half baths.

Each room has radiant heat through out the floorboards. Including, the master bathroom, which also features a claw foot bath tub and a shower with a heated floor and walls.

Every single room has a great view from both the front and back of the house.

"If it's clear, you can see the smoke from the Shinnston Power Plant," said Clair Hawkins. "You can also see the smoke from the Masontown Power Plant so you can see for miles and miles. Matter of fact, Fourth of July we can see the fireworks from Nemacolin."

Especially in autumn, winter and spring, the home owners still say that the views are the best part of the property.
