About the Property

In the quaint country village of Flint Hill, tucked under a canopy of trees, you will find Cottage Green. The deceivingly spacious cottage features three bedrooms, one full bath, and two bonus rooms. The property is convenient to Warrenton, Front Royal and Interstate 66 via a drive on scenic Crest Hill Road.

The house sits on a 1.63 +/- acre wooded and open lot and has expansive views of the surrounding countryside and village. As you enter the home you walk into the living room and find yourself drawn to the large wood-burning fireplace, which is the focal point of the room. A tunnel like hall with interesting archways leads you to a hallway just off the kitchen with access to the full bathroom and the main level bedroom.The kitchen was recently renovated and features custom cabinets, granite countertops, and stainless steel appliances. A small mudroom/laundry room located off the kitchen gives you access to the spacious rear deck. The deck is an ideal place for summer cookouts and star gazing.

A curved staircase leads you upstairs where you find the two additional bedrooms. One of the bedrooms has access to a unique deck, located above the storage shed, via a wooden walkway. This intimate space, located under several mature trees, would be great for a hammock. Adjoining one of the upstairs bedrooms is a spacious bonus room that can be used as a walk in closet or play room for children.

If you are looking for a peaceful and picturesque country retreat in a quaint small town, Cottage Green is the place for you. The village location offers cell phone and high speed internet services. You can walk to any of the restaurants in town from Cottage Green and the property is located immediately across the road from the popular Public House Restaurant.

The home was built in 1942 and is stucco sided with a metal roof, an especially appealing combination. The approximate 1652 square foot home includes a small basement of 226 square feet with access from the laundry/mudroom. The current owner upgraded the kitchen and performed other renovations in 2012. The heating and cooling systems are central forced air.

Flint Hill features three dining options and lively country night life at both the Griffin Tavern and the Public House. Stock up with wine and culinary gems from Merry Moo Market, and become a regular at 24 Crows for coffee, sandwiches, ice cream, and scones. Nearby, the Shenandoah National Park offers an amazing array of hikes and trails featuring flora and fauna, waterfalls and canyons. This home is only 15 country miles from the monthly Castleton in Performance, which brings world-class concerts, operas and other performances to the area. In addition, Rappahannock County has many fine restaurants, boutique shopping, and award-winning wineries that will allow you and your guests an array of fun country activities every weekend.
