About the Property

Black Bear Crossing is an idyllic mountaintop retreat with some of the finest views in Rappahannock County. Walking trails, a delightful pool complex, starlit nights and the lights of Sperryville twinkling in the distance make it reminiscent of your favorite summer camp, but infinitely more luxurious.

Black Bear Crossing is a perfect blend of country charm and sophistication. A wide front porch wraps around the home, offering covered areas and bright open decks with amazing views. The dining room to the right of the entrance foyer is delineated by columns, creating an open, airy feel. The living room features soaring ceilings with plantation windows that capture the magnificent views. A fieldstone fireplace anchors the living room. The fireplace is modified for gas logs for convenience, but can be converted back to wood-burning. The living room opens to the deck with its expansive views of the valley and Blue Ridge, including Old Rag Mountain.

The gourmet kitchen has a Viking professional gas cooktop, GE Profile appliances and granite countertops. A comfortable breakfast nook adjoins the kitchen. With a wall of windows, the nook offers views of forest and mountains. The kitchen opens to a covered deck so you can enjoy outdoor meals anytime. The first floor also offers a large master suite with full bath and a laundry room and 1/2 bath for guests.

The second level features another master bedroom with luxurious en-suite bath, its own deck, a reading alcove and an expansive walk-in closet. Another bedroom with full bath is at the other end of the upstairs hall. All rooms have spectacular views and a great open, airy feel. One walk-in closet even has a window, providing more mountain views.

The lower level features a game room with professional size pool table and office/guest bedroom with en-suite bath and a sitting room. A second wood-burning fireplace adds a cozy touch. A storage room and utility room complete that level.

Throughout the entire house you will find interesting architectural details and handy features that enhance an easy lifestyle. The home has been wired inside and outside with intercoms and speakers so your relaxation can have its own soundtrack. Most of the doors are a full 36 inches, which makes the home suitable for aging in place. A full list of the features can be found here.

Adjacent to the home is a pool and a rustic log cabin that serves as a charming pool house. It is a large one room structure with a wood stove. Carved into the hillside, the pool and deck have endless mountain views. The heated three car garage is also wired with the intercom and speaker system and a wall mounted corded telephone.

The grounds are luxuriously landscaped. Mature plantings (azaleas, rhododendrons, hostas and many more) blend seamlessly with the fieldstone home, creating a sense of oneness with the land. Just enough trees have been cleared to maximize the views, while still maintaining the forest feeling for privacy and excellent wildlife habitat.

Black Bear Crossing has complete privacy and an ideal location, yet it is only minutes from the shops, galleries, theatres and restaurants in Little Washington and Sperryville. Imagine dining at the legendary Inn at Little Washington less than 10 minutes from your front door. The Inn was awarded two stars from the Michelin Guide in October of 2016, the highest rating received in the Metro DC area. Further afield in Rappahannock County are numerous wineries, two breweries, a distillery, organic farms, art galleries, charming unique shops, gourmet food producers and other delicious dining destinations. The majestic beauty Shenandoah National Park with its network of trails and outdoor opportunities is only about eight miles away.
