About the property

Engage oneself in the beauty and tranquility of being “un-plugged”.

This perfect retreat offers a fully equipped kitchen with gas range, laundry room, dining room, living room, office room and half bath on the main level. The second level has a master bedroom with a king size bed and private bathroom with soaking tub and separate shower. The other two bedrooms, feature one queen bed and two full sized beds. These two bedrooms share a large bathroom room with double sinks. Getting back to nature is as simple as stepping out the front door. Nature trails criss-cross through this private 25 acre wilderness providing you with ample privacy as you enjoy a stroll or even mountain bike ride through the Virginia woodlands. The home features a prominent wrap around covered porch that provides plenty of opportunity to relax and soak in the beauty of seclusion and tranquility. Even the pitter-patter of rain becomes treat under its spacious shelter. Take advantage of the outdoor furnishings for a lovely outdoor BBQ from the provided Weber gas grill (please only use outside of covered porch). Toast the sunsets from the sun deck and on summer evenings and watch the lightning bugs bring on the star filled sky. In autumn you will discover the splash of colors as the trees celebrate the change of season. While spring will bring the fresh fragrances of an awakening forest and love songs of amorous birds. Winter time is so special, as you discover that even with a quiet quilt of snow, the forest is teaming with life. (Four wheel drive recommended if winter storms are pending) The culture and history abound in this area and many terrific sites are within an easy drive. To the west is the Blue Ridge Mountains and Skyline Drive which provides access to many hiking trails and scenic views. Quaint towns hosting fabulous shops, antiques, gourmet restaurants, and plenty of wineries are all within a short reach.
