About the Property
Adventure awaits you in beautiful Rappahannock County, Virginia. Just 6 miles from the historic village of Sperryville, Oak View Cottage is an ideal base from which to enjoy all the area has to offer. This newly built three-bedroom home sits on 1.2 low-maintenance acres, freeing up more time for fun.
Enter the front door and be surprised by the modern, open and airy great room. Featuring a cathedral ceiling, a multitude of windows, and a unique ceiling fan, the room encompasses the living area, dining area and kitchen. A wonderful layout for entertaining, your guests can enjoy the comfortable living area, belly up to the kitchen island bar, or be seated around the dining table while still interacting with the chef. The kitchen has an expanse of granite counters, ample shaker-style cabinets, stainless steel appliances, and a pantry. A large deck expands the great room to the great outdoors. Its proximity to the kitchen makes grilling and al fresco meals a breeze. The home’s thoughtful design is additionally reflected in details that include sturdy two-by-six framing, recessed lighting and care-free luxury vinyl plank flooring throughout.
The primary bedroom is on the main level, just off the great room. It includes a walk in closet and a beautifully tiled bathroom with a granite-topped vanity and a big window overlooking the woods behind the home. The second bedroom, also on the main level, has its own ensuite full bathroom. Both bedrooms are light and airy with big windows. Rounding out the main floor is a half bath just off the entrance hall and a roomy laundry/mudroom with a granite counter and shelving.
The walk-out lower level is fully finished and exhibits the same attention to detail as the main floor. There is an ample family room with a convenient half bath. Adjoining this room is another space that could be used as an art studio, exercise room, or perhaps for a pool table. This space also has a door to the back yard, making it possible for the lower level to be used as a separate apartment. A large bedroom with an ensuite bath makes up the other side of this level. Just off of the bedroom, there is a space that could be used as an office or reading nook and also has a door to the outside.
The 1.2 acre parcel is gently sloping and has some beautiful old oak trees and other hardwoods, daffodils and crocus, old boxwoods along the road frontage, and perhaps other gems to discover as the growing season progresses. A garden shed left over from bygone times adds a bit of whimsy along with practicality. An interesting old road bed is included inside the back property line and the northwestern neighbors are horses and cows.
Rappahannock and surrounding counties offer endless possibilities for adventure. 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, including a long stretch of the Appalachian Trail. The county is also known for great restaurants such as the famed Inn at Little Washington, Three Blacksmiths, The Blue Door, Blue Rock Inn, Rappahannock Pizza Kitchen, and Sumac. There are wineries and breweries, 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 local historical museum. 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 and would be equally suitable as a full time residence.
