422 Harris Hollow Road
This lovingly maintained split-foyer home in Harris Hollow, with stunning mountain views, is tucked into a private setting and yet is only a few minutes away from the Town of Washington, Virginia, making it a perfect home for any family. The well-built house, constructed in 1981, sits on almost six partly open and partly wooded acres. The living room overlooks the sweeping front lawn, and the long asphalt driveway approaching the house. A stone chimney stands nearby, a reminder of an early homesteader who once lived before the gorgeous mountain backdrop in the front of the house.
Enter the front door and from the foyer take a few steps up to the main level of the home. Here you find the living room and a large kitchen with abundant cupboard space, as well as an adjoining dining area with sliding doors providing access to the backyard deck for grilling, visiting and other pleasing pastimes. The three bedrooms and two full baths are also located on this level.
Back to the foyer and down a few steps leads you to the partially finished lower level where there is a spacious family room with a pellet stove, a mudroom, a tool room, and a utility/laundry/storage area. There is also convenient side-door access from the parking area to this level. The attractive sidewalk provides safe access from the parking area to both doors of the house as well as around back to the deck.
Rural living means you will have an opportunity to enjoy wildlife and birdlife; with this property you can see and hear it all. While the front lawn is open except for a few shade trees, the rear of the property is wooded, providing a haven for deer, turkey, and other woodland creatures.
When one buys a home, one becomes part of a neighborhood and a community. Harris Hollow Road is a peaceful and desirable road on which to live. Centrally located in beautiful Rappahannock County, this road winds gently alongside the usually lazy Rush River behind “Little” Washington all the way to the back of the Hollow, where the road turns and winds it way out again as Gid Brown Hollow Road. There is little traffic except for the folks who live in Harris Hollow, so you will probably find yourself waving at your neighbors in any car you pass. You can feel any daily tension being left behind as you drive home on this bucolic country road.
Nearby the Town of Washington serves as our county seat, with its quaint government offices and its circa 1835 Courthouse built a few years after Rappahannock County was formed from Culpeper County. However, the Town is perhaps better known as the home of the famous Inn at Little Washington, where locals, weekenders, city folks, politicians and celebrities have all been known to rub shoulders. The Town also boasts local favorite eating place, the Country Cafe, as well as the popular Tula’s bar and restaurant, Ballard’s gift shop/art gallery, Gay Street Gallery, Wine and Chocolate, a Post Office, and other shops, not to mention the many beautiful private homes that one can enjoy viewing during a walk around this small, friendly town. Only a few miles away is the Thornton Gap entrance to the Shenandoah National Park with its beautiful Skyline Drive, offering opportunities for hiking, fishing, trail rides, birdwatching, swimming and many other outdoor activities.
