United States of America, West Virginia, Kanawha County, Malden
Grandview (Rapidan, Va.)
"Country garden of curvaceous mixed borders edged with stone walls. Extensive views of the Virginia countryside. Design was center from kitchen views. The owner designed romantic plantings like a "painting" with bright colors and good variety."
"The property is on the knoll of a mountain. In 1988, the 95 year old farm house with gardens that consist of untended but extensive bed of herbaceous peonies and every kind of bulb along the north fence, and lots of mature American boxwood surrounding the house, included a mysterious boxwood room with easily 12 feet high or more at the northeast corner of the house."
Persons associated with the property include: Mr. and Mrs. Frank Priest (former owner); Mr. Vernon Spurzem (former owner 1960 to 1988); Mr. and Mrs. Roger Surzem (former owner).
