Corner Cottage is in the heart of the quaint village of Flint Hill. The traditional circa 1850 solid brick home is chock full of history and charm. In the late 1800s to early 1900s, this home was known as the Blue Ridge Institute, a school for young ladies where music and languages were taught. Throughout the years, the home has been a mainstay of village life in Flint Hill and is now being sold for the first time in over 50 years.
Stone retaining walls surround the property and traditional fieldstone steps lead you into the home. Upon entering the home, you are greeted by the entrance foyer with its original heart of pine floors and access to the main layer rear screened-in porch. The living room has a brick fireplace and a small, attached reading room with built-in bookshelves, a closet and a half bath.
On the upper level, the roomy master bedroom has a fireplace and an attached screened-in porch that provides the perfect spot to relax. The second bedroom also has an attached porch with plenty of windows. There is a full bathroom on the upper level with unique, half-tiled walls and a Claw-foot tub.
The English basement is home to a minimal kitchen. The kitchen expands into an open area with an exposed stone wall and outdoor access to the porch, the perfect area for dining in the summer. There is also a garage/guest house in need of renovation.
Corner Cottage is convenient to the many village restaurants and shops such as the Blue Door Kitchen & Inn, Griffin Tavern and the Skyward Cafe. Rappahannock and surrounding counties offer endless recreational possibilities. There are wineries and breweries, great restaurants and cafes, antique stores, farms and orchards, and much more. The property has easy access to I-66 and is located about an hour and a half from Washington, DC, making it perfect for weekend getaways or a full time residence.
