About the Property

Tucked off Main Street in Sperryville, this simple home, built circa 1900, was originally the home to the town blacksmith.  The two bedroom home has been lovingly restored and expanded to create a delightful cottage that blends history with modern conveniences.

The home sits on a small lot off Woodward Road, one of the prettiest roads in Rappahannock County, which eventually winds its way back towards Shenandoah National Park.  Several fabulous hikes can be accessed from Woodward and you are sure to meet your neighbors as they stroll along the country lane.

As you enter the home from the welcoming front porch, make sure you notice the craftsmanship on the front door which is original to the home.  You enter into a cozy kitchen in the old section of the home.  The kitchen has a second antique door that leads you to the terraced garden behind the home.  Throwing both doors open lets the light flood into the home.  A small staircase leads from the kitchen up to the upstairs bedrooms.  Next to the kitchen, also in the original section of the house, is the dining room.  Behind the dining room, the new section has been artfully blended with the old.  The new section features a comfortable living room with large windows.  Between the two sections the renovation includes a laundry room and a full bath.

A wide staircase leads from the living room to the upstairs family room.  Along the staircase, the renovators installed stained glass windows both to keep the morning sunlight from being too bright and as a nod to days gone by.  The upstairs family room has a small balcony that looks out on the private yard behind the house.  With a large closet and a full bath attached, this room would also make an excellent master suite.  From the family room, the home transitions back to the original cottage with two bedrooms that served the blacksmith and his family.  The house also features a garage.

The property is immaculate landscaped with roses, dogwoods and a myriad of other beautiful plantings.  A row of peach trees runs along the fence that separates the backyard from Woodward Road.  A stone retaining wall has been built to create a perfectly level area that would make an excellent town garden or could be used for a wide variety of games.

Aside from the convenience, the village location provides the added benefits of high-speed cable internet and being connected to the public sewer. Both hard to come by in the country! The village of Sperryville has become the new, thriving heart of Rappahannock County. Recent years have seen the addition of a coffee shop, two tiny breweries, a wood-fired pizza kitchen and craft cocktail bar, an outdoor gear and lifestyle shop, Stonewall Abbey Wellness gym, and Three Blacksmiths. This, our newest restaurant, recently received a stellar review by The Washington Post’s food critic. Sperryville is also home to the Corner Store, Stonewall Abbey Yoga, a hair and nail salon, an art gallery, several shops, multiple restaurants, Copper Fox Distillery, and of course, a post office.

Rappahannock, Madison and Culpeper counties have a wealth of farms and farmer’s markets, antique stores, wineries, restaurants, art galleries, historical sites, and much more. Shenandoah National Park and Skyline Drive are less than 15 minutes away, providing one of the country’s most scenic drives and many miles of hiking trails. Located about an hour and a half from Washington, DC, and about an hour from Charlottesville.
