About the Property

Maple Bend Cottage is a hidden gem. The humble exterior belies the exquisite renovations within. The seller has lovingly restored this farmhouse to be a well-thought-out blend of traditional and contemporary. Old-fashioned comforts like a wood stove and shady front porch blend seamlessly with a modern open kitchen and dining area. Charming touches such as the Dutch door in the kitchen complete the picture.

Renovated between 2015 and 2016, the home now has a beautiful, light-filled kitchen and dining area. The kitchen features quartz counter tops, stainless steel appliances and a farmhouse sink. Just off the kitchen is a butler’s pantry with additional counter space and room for storage. The dining area’s large windows flood the space with natural light. Recessed and statement lighting plus oversized tiles on the floor finish the look.

There is a living room at the front of the home which opens out to the front porch. There is also a cozy family room with a wood stove. The renovated bathroom, with glass-front shower and granite vanity counter, is just off this room. Two cozy bedrooms look out under the shade trees and across the lawn.

Perched on a little rise and tucked beneath the beautiful, mature trees, Maple Bend Cottage is an ideal weekend escape or a cozy full-time home. There is a welcoming expanse of lawn with a backdrop of woods and a bit of a mountain view. Old Rag Mountain can be seen from the property in the wintertime when the leaves are off the trees. There is an old farm shed out back, just right for storing your mower, outdoor furniture and lawn games.

Maple Bend Cottage is located less than 20 minutes from the village of Sperryville, recently voted the best small town in Virginia. Run into town for wood fired pizza at RPK and grab a craft cocktail at Francis while you wait for your order. Or stock up on gourmet goodies at the Corner Store and have a growler filled at one of the two breweries to enjoy on your front porch while the sun goes down. There are also restaurants, a coffee shop/wine bar, a whiskey distillery, plus art galleries and a yoga studio.

For adventures farther afield, Rappahannock and surrounding counties offer endless recreational possibilities. Shenandoah National Park and Old Rag Mountain are nearby. The park is home to scenic Skyline Drive with its overlooks as well as many miles of trails. The area boasts 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.

Located under two hours from Washington, DC, and about an hour from Charlottesville, Maple Bend Cottage is an easy drive for a weekend getaway yet it feels a world away. It also offers a full time resident easy access to these two metropolitan centers and all they have to offer.
