About the Property

The Home in Harris Hollow is the ideal country cottage – rustic yet refined, easy keeping and not at all fussy. It has an ideal location in a picturesque valley just outside of Little Washington that’s near the headwaters of the Rush River. The 7.5 acre property is at about 1,200 feet in elevation on the south side of Hogback Mountain. From this strategic setting there are cool mountain breezes and grand views of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

The home is a cedar sided three bedroom cottage with a fine front porch that overlooks lovely gardens of flowering shrubs and native plantings. The main floor has an open floor plan with a large living room that flows into the dining area. The living room has tall glass windows that overlook the front porch. The windows provide wonderful natural cooling and a sense of space. The dining area has glass doors that lead to a delightful screened porch. When the entire main floor is opened, the home almost feels like a giant tree house in a magical forest. The first two floors are approximately 2400 square feet. The lower level adds another 1500 square feet of finished space to the home. The home was built in 1992 and is in excellent condition. A central vacuum system makes it easy to maintain.

The kitchen is bright, cheerful and sure to satisfy almost any aspiring chef. It has good natural light, plenty of cabinet space and premium appliances: Wolf Range, Samsung refrigerator, and Bosch dishwasher.

The master suite, a media room/office and a full bath are on the main floor. The master bedroom has six foot high glass windows that overlook the front porch, the perfect spot for morning coffee. Or open the casement windows, close the screens and sleep to the cool breezes and sounds of the forest at night. A convenient mud room/laundry area is also on the main level (Maytag washer and Gas dryer).

On the upper level, there are two expansive bedrooms and another full bathroom.

The lower level is almost like another home. There is a cozy reading room with a cheery red wood stove and built in book shelves. A second large dining room is set up and there is a comfortable living area that also enjoys warm wood heat. At the other end of the lower level is a workspace that would make a fine studio or office. There is a half bath on this level.There are glass doors leading directly to the outside on ground level.

The property is mostly wooded with mature poplars, hickories and oak with an understory of many dogwoods. It includes a strong mountain stream that is one of the main tributaries of the Rush River.

The home sits high on a hillside overlooking the grounds and forest. It is accessed by a paved driveway off of Harris Hollow Road. Despite a relatively small lot, the property is perfectly private and no other homes are visible.

Rappahannock County is a food lovers’ dream, with interesting restaurant options and a vibrant local food scene that includes wineries, vegetable farms, livestock farms and dairies. The charming Town of Washington (about 2 miles from the property) is home to the renowned Inn at Little Washington as well as several other restaurants, and an interesting collection of shops and galleries. Two organic farms that are CSA’s (consumer share associations) are within 5 miles of the home: Sunnyside Farms and Waterpenny Farm, and there are several wineries within a few miles of the property.

The Home in Harris Hollow is convenient to Sperryville (5 minutes away),Warrenton, Culpeper and about 20 minutes from the monthly Castleton in Performance, which brings world-class concerts, operas and other performances to the area. The Shenandoah National Park is only minutes away and an amazing array of waterfalls, trails and hikes await you.
