About the Property
Harris Hollow Hideaway, in the hills of Rappahannock County, is tucked away on a quiet, scenic country road just two and a half miles outside of historic Washington, Virginia. With a roughed-in driveway, electricity on site, and a three-bedroom septic permit already on file, it is ready for you to build your perfect hideaway at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Heading northwest from “little” Washington, Harris Hollow Road takes you past bucolic farms and forested foothills. You will follow along the fast flowing Rush River until you cross over it and turn into the property, bringing you back along a stretch of the river that marks the bottom of the property. From there, the driveway path takes you through a small meadow and begins to rise up the slope towards the proposed home site, approximately halfway up the property.
The homesite has fabulous seasonal views of the long, rambling ridge of Jenkins Mountain to the southwest and could be opened up for year-round views. Enjoy the tranquil forest from your hideaway perch and listen to the river below, with no neighbors in sight. There is another spot further up the slope that would be perfect for a fire pit and a few Adirondack chairs.
Located about an hour and half from Washington, DC, and about an hour from Charlottesville, this property is within an easy driving distance for weekend getaways. Rappahannock and surrounding counties offer endless recreational possibilities. The Mount Marshall trailhead is only a mile and a half away and Shenandoah National Park and Old Rag Mountain are nearby. The famed Inn at Little Washington and their newest offshoot, Patty O’s Café, are just up the road. There are wineries and breweries, great restaurants, antique stores, farms and orchards, and much more. Visit one of the many art galleries, attend a play or a concert, or visit the Rappahannock Historical Society. Or, just relax at your hideaway and get away from it all.
