              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2003

              About the owner: All I know is due to not being ashamed to ask for information while conversing with all descriptions of people on those topics that form their own professions and pursuits of life, liberty and freedom. I have determined what life is all about, living a life dreamed. A place out in the woods to relax, star gaze, enjoy nature and peace. Ride your 4-wheeler/golf cart/dirt bike, go fishing, hunting, mountain hiking & biking. We live on site, we could stay or go. The cottage is very well equipped as we live there with household appliances, utensils, all the comforts of home. We like to travel so if you want the place to yourself, no problem, we will leave for the period of time desired. We travel to visit friends/family often. I want to share my future retirement home with you. Availability based upon request.

              Why the Owner Chose Capon Bridge:
              Acres of privately owned land, each lot is 3-20 acres, my lot is 5 acres, very private and secluded. There are over 21 miles of dirt/gravel roads to ride your bike, 4-wheeler, motorcycle, golf cart or horses. PLEASE NOTE: SPEED LIMIT IS 10MPH, speeding is very hazardous on the mountain roads, do not expect to go wide open on your recreational vehicles, this is a residential area. The people that live or visit this area are very friendly. Hunting, fishing, bird watching, plenty of nature out here but close enough to big cities for shopping or to go to the movies. There is a 'Alamo Drafthouse' movie theatre, Outback, Carrabbas, Texas Roadhouse, Longhorn, Red Lobster, Olive Garden and many other local places to eat within an hour drive from the cottage. The small town of Capon Bridge has a Family Restaurant, Mexican restaurant and an Italian restaurant. There is also a Dollar General and Family Dollar in town for odds and ends. The Winchester Medical Center is the closest large medical facility (45 minutes away) and a local Urgent Care facility within 20 minutes.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              Someday you will be looking back at your life and your memories, this would be one of them. Peace. Serenity. Nature. Going to the woods is like going home. Available to show you around the place, take you for a tour around the valley on my 4-wheeler, point out the best hiking trails or fishing spots etc. As so stated in history 2800 B.C. (not PC), the world we think we know is speedily coming to an end. A woodland retreat, come share it.
