Bella Vista (Frederick Seibert House and Distillery)

-A A +A
Frederick Seibert House and Distillery
1807. Southwest side of Berkeley County 15, west of Nollville. 2.3 miles west of the intersection with I-81.

Bella Vista and its attendant outbuildings make up one of Berkeley County's most picturesque and easily seen rural architectural groupings. The two-story main house, built of roughly coursed limestone, has a formal five-bay facade and a carved date stone with the numerals 1807. To the rear, the old Tuscarora Road (Berkeley County 15) curves around the beautifully landscaped property, where a springhouse and distillery, both of stone, stand close by a pond. On the slope to the rear, a stone and frame bank barn with a protruding forebay adds its charm to the perfect picture.
