If you’re dreaming of a lovingly renovated home in a quaint yet vibrant village, your dream has come true in downtown Sperryville, VA, with this three-bedroom, two-bathroom home on a large, level lot just steps from Main Street.
This beautiful two-story house, owned by the same family since the 1940s, has crisp, clean curb appeal with a touch of historic flair and plenty of modern ease. The pea gravel driveway leads to ample parking behind the home near a spacious backyard anchored with raised bed gardens, mature privacy hedging and trees, two outdoor storage buildings and a delightful patio area perfect for entertaining.
The nearby back door is an ideal entry for toting in fresh goods from the local farmers market or Corner Store. A modern mudroom, for kicking off footwear or storing outerwear, leads to a spacious kitchen bathed in sunlight from a skylight that caps the center island. Gorgeous heart of pine floors fill the open space with a warm and inviting farmhouse feel. Sturdy cabinets, electric appliances and lots of space invite the new homeowner to enjoy classic features.
Oversized windows, a gorgeous brick wall, and a pair of patio French doors flank the kitchen eating area and cozy family room, perfect spots for lounging near the fireplace and wood stove. A full bath sits just off the family room near a small wine bar and the entry to the formal living room. The storied living room is an original part of the house boasting wood paneling, hardwood floors, built-in bookshelves, a working fireplace, foyer with staircase, and front door views of the tidy front yard wrapped in a white picket fence.
The kitchen and living room both have entries to the formal dining room, a charming space with fresh neutral paint, detailed chair railing and a beautiful pine floor, that joins an enclosed porch drenched in sunlight or moonbeams, for relaxed gatherings before and after meals. Houseplants will love the southwestern sun that fills this peaceful porch and garden corner.
From the main entry, a pristine wooden staircase leads upstairs, where three spacious and light-filled bedrooms fill the top level of the home. Gorgeous wood floors continue in each room, along with large closets and freshly painted walls. Tucked away in the master bedroom is a sweet little window seat snuggled next to a small set of bookshelves and a hidden storage chest. The master bedroom includes an oversized bathroom with a large vanity and jetted tub.
With carefully crafted vintage details and modern comforts, this house is a rare find in a special village.
Aside from the convenience, the village location provides the added benefits of high-speed cable internet and being connected to the public sewer. The village of Sperryville has become the new, thriving heart of Rappahannock County. Recent years have seen the addition of a coffee shop, two tiny breweries, Haley Fine Art Gallery, a wood-fired pizza kitchen and craft cocktail bar, an outdoor gear and lifestyle shop, Stonewall Abbey Wellness and Yoga, and Three Blacksmiths. This, our newest restaurant, recently received a stellar review by The Washington Post’s food critic. Sperryville is also home to the Corner Store, Hair Gallery, antiquing, several shops, multiple restaurants, Copper Fox Distillery, and of course, a post office.
