About the Property

Bluebird Haven is a quiet oasis surrounded by birdsong. This charming Cape Cod has been lovingly renovated by its current owners with obvious attention to detail. The three-bedroom, three-bath home features a very large living room, a full bath on each level, and a walk-out English Basement. There is a three-bay garage and a fenced vegetable garden, all on a private 14.5 acre parcel.

Entering the home from the inviting front porch, you will find yourself in the open-concept dining room and kitchen. The dining room has a bay window at one end, letting in views of the field and woods beyond. There is a bar-height counter at the edge of the kitchen, offering your guests the perfect perch from which to watch the action in the kitchen. The kitchen was completely renovated in 2018 and features Carrera marble counters, brushed stainless steel appliances, and a beadboard ceiling. Ample cabinet space and a large pantry make storage a breeze.

To the right of the dining room is the oversized living room. With its gleaming expanse of hardwood floor, a cathedral ceiling, four skylights, a bay window, and French doors leading to the back porch, the room is bright and airy. A field-stone propane fireplace, flanked by built-in shelves and a TV nook, is the centerpiece of the room. The back porch is extra deep, allowing space for outdoor dining in the shade and the comfort of its two ceiling fans. Rounding out the main floor is a laundry room with cabinets and a utility sink, a full bath with a tub/shower, and a mudroom area by the home’s side entrance.

Upstairs there are three bedrooms, one that features a bay window and another featuring two large dormer windows. All of the bedrooms look out over the fields and woods that surround the home. Like the kitchen, the upstairs bathroom has been fully renovated and is now a bright and calming oasis. The dual-sink vanity has a Carrera marble counter and ample storage. The high-end frameless glass shower door, rain shower head, and woodgrain floor tiles  complete the spa-like experience.

The lower level of the home is a walk-out English basement that is full of light. A new neutral tile floor makes the room feel bright and two glass doors invite in the views and open to the back patio. There is a full bath on this level as well. This space could easily be converted to a master suite and the bathroom enlarged.

The 14.5 acre parcel (4.5 acres were recently added) is a lovely combination of level and rolling, open and wooded, with plenty of privacy year-round. The varied habitat and woodland edges are perfect for songbirds and a previous owner sprinkled nest boxes throughout the property. The current owner added a fenced vegetable garden with raised beds and a small chicken run that would work well with a portable coop. There is a three-bay garage that has electricity and space for projects, lawn equipment, and your vehicles besides.

Rappahannock and surrounding counties offer endless recreational possibilities. Nearby Shenandoah National Park  is home to scenic Skyline Drive with its overlooks as well as many miles of trails. There are wineries and breweries, great restaurants and cafes, antique stores, farms and orchards, and much more. Looking for cultural activities? Visit one of the many art galleries, attend a play or a concert at one of the theaters, or visit the Rappahannock Historical Society’s museum.

Near Sperryville and “little” Washington, and convenient to Warrenton and Culpeper, Bluebird Haven is ideally situated for full-time residents or weekenders alike. Located less than two hours from Washington, DC, and about an hour and a half from Charlottesville, the property is within an easy driving distance for weekend getaways.
