This lovely, warm country home offers gracious, comfortable living and is tastefully decorated throughout. The light-filled great room, with its cathedral ceiling, is perfect for entertaining friends and family. In addition, there is a cozy living room with a stone fireplace and a separate dining room that are ideal for intimate gatherings. The bright and spacious country kitchen enjoys a picture-perfect view. A privately located office on the main level benefits from high-speed Comcast internet, and adjacent to the office is a half bath. The covered back porch, which overlooks the pond, is an inviting location for morning coffees, an afternoon nap, or evening relaxation.
The upper level of this home has three bedrooms: one is currently in use as a second home office. The primary bedroom has hard wood flooring; the hallway, second and third bedrooms have new wall-to-wall carpeting. This level also features a full bath with hard wood flooring, and large hall closets that provide generous extra storage space.
The lower level of the home offers a guest suite, with both sitting and sleeping areas, its own full bath and a wood burning “pot belly” stove. Prior owners had a second kitchen on this level; the sink area and water lines are still in place, should the new owner ever want to use them. Laundry facilities and a utility/storage area are also located in separate rooms on this level. Walkout double French doors and above grade windows provide light as well as easy access to the backyard.
A separate building lot, included in the sale, offers the rare opportunity to build a second home and create a family compound, or to hold for future investment. Total acreage is 6.7 acres.
This property offers a variety of recreational opportunities. The large fenced yard enjoys mature trees that provide shade for outside activities. A barn, with two stalls and two fenced paddocks, is ready for horses or other livestock. The large field on the property produces an annual hay crop, but could be turned into a small vineyard or orchard. The beautiful pond behind the house is an attractive asset and provides a safe haven for fish and wildlife.
Although this home has a Huntly address, it is less than a mile to the village of Flint Hill, where one finds the popular restaurants Griffin Tavern and The Blue Door, as well as the convenience of a small gas station, convenience store, bank and local post office. The property is also less than ten minutes from the county seat of Washington, Virginia, with art galleries, boutique shops and, of course, the world famous 5-star rated Inn at Little Washington. The lively village of Sperryville, at the gateway to the Shenandoah National Park, is only fifteen minutes away.
The house is also in close proximity to both public and private pre-school through grade 12 schools.
