About the Property

Tucked in a small clearing on a wooded 33 acre +/- lot, this thoughtfully designed home is the perfect country retreat. Large windows throughout the home provide lots of natural light so even though you are tucked into the forest, your home has plenty of light. The majority of the property is heavily wooded with second growth forest. The home is located on a small knoll that rises above the property.

This delightful 4 bedroom home was built by local master builder Peter Kreyling who was renowned for the quality of his craftsmanship. The home has been thoughtfully laid out and is an entertainers dream. The first floor features a large kitchen that is easily accessible from the back door. The kitchen seamlessly flows into the dining room. A small bar separates the two rooms and is perfect for a quick bite or serving as a buffet for the family dinner. The dining room offers quick access to the wrap around deck through a pair of french doors. This is perfect for letting in the cool evening air or letting the party flow outside.

The balance of the first floor is a huge great room. This room has windows on three sides and has a light airy feel. A magnificent wood stove artfully set next to the stairs leading to the bedrooms upstairs is the highlight of the room. The stove can easily heat the first floor with plenty of heat rising to the bedrooms above. A 1/2 bath is located off of the great room.

Upstairs, the home features 4 bedrooms and 2 full baths. The master bedroom has southern and eastern exposure maximizing the sunlight. Plus, you can see Old Rag as you look out the bedroom window. The master bedroom has a nice master bath and a large master closet. The second bedroom features a pair of hand crafted bunk beds. Further down the hall is a third bedroom which also features a hand crafted bunk bed. The fourth bedroom would make a great office or could be used as a bedroom if needed.

Truly, one of the highlights of the property is the one room cabin by the pond. Built in the 1960s by Charles Seib, a Washington Post reporter and Ombudsman, this cabin was the basis for his book “The Woods: One Man’s Escape to Nature” as he tried to recreate a Walden like existence. A small path leads from the home through the woods and over a small creek to the cabin. From the cabin you have a great view of the pond and all of nature’s residents that stop by for a drink. Like Charles had hoped, this cabin is a great place to reconnect with nature.

Poplar Hollow is convenient to Warrenton, Culpeper and only about five miles from the monthly Castleton in Performance, which brings world-class concerts, operas and other performances to the area. Only 20 minutes away the Shenandoah National Park offers an amazing array of waterfalls, canyons, trails and hikes. Rappahannock County has many fine restaurants and wineries that will allow you an array of fun activities every weekend.
