About the Property

This very spacious open plan home has 2 master bedrooms, both with en suite bathrooms, 2 large living rooms, both with gas fired stone fireplaces, a large well equipped custom kitchen with stainless steel appliances, a separate kitchenette on lower level, and two expansive decks making it an the ideal vacation property for large family gatherings.

The middle level features a spacious living room with soaring pine clad cathedral ceiling, a gorgeous stone gas fireplace, amazing 180° views of the forest, Satellite HDTV, Blu-ray DVD player, and opens into the kitchen area. The bright kitchen is furnished with granite countertops, custom cabinetry, double sink, D/W, Fridge Freezer with TV built into the niche above, large farmhouse table, and huge island with bar sink and seats 4. Kitchen gives access out to the huge deck, which is equipped with BBQ and Patio furniture. The deck overlooks the valley and is a wonderful vantage point from which to enjoy the sunrise or sunset, or to watch the numerous birds, squirrels, chipmunks, and occasional deer and groundhogs, which visit the property. This deck wraps around to the back of the property, so can also be accessed from the rear. The kitchen has a large floor to ceiling panty, and leads on to a powder room, second access door to the deck, and a mud room with its own access door to the deck. This level also has two bedrooms, bedroom 3 has two twin beds and bedroom 4 has one full-sized bed. These rooms share a separate bathroom with single sink and shower.

There are two further bedrooms on this level with connecting French doors, making it ideal for families with young children. Bedroom 5 has a queen-sized bed and bedroom 6 has one set of bunk beds, and a single bed with a trundle bed underneath. These bedrooms share a separate bathroom with double sink, bath and free standing shower. There is also a large laundry room/mud room on this level with HE washer and drier, crates for two dogs (pets by arrangement), and a small kitchen table seating 4. This is the main access room for the property as it leads directly out to the driveway, which has parking for three cars.

Car: Necessary

There are abundant opportunities for outdoor recreation available in all parts of Nelson County, from the top of the weathered Blue Ridge peaks down to the wide bends of the James River. These options include: hiking along the Appalachian Trail or to the top of Crabtree Falls (the highest cascading waterfall east of the Mississippi River), excellent canoeing or fishing on the James or Tye Rivers, or cycling on U.S. Bicycle Route 76 or one of the many Virginia Scenic Byways. Additionally, one of the boundaries of Nelson County is milepost zero of the Blue Ridge Parkway, which closely mirrors Nelson County’s northwestern border for 30 miles.

Long established family orchards provide apples in the fall and hold fall festivals on the weekends. Other seasonal fruits available are peaches, strawberries and blackberries.

The restaurants and dining options offer a variety of foods with many offering Virginia grown products and are also locally-owned and operated. Nelson County is also home to many thriving vineyards, three craft breweries, a cider barn, and a whiskey distillery. The Brew Ridge Trail has taken the craft-brewing world by storm and has become extremely popular in Central Virginia.

Nelson County is home to Swannanoa mansion and is the location of Walton's Mountain made famous by the television show The Waltons.

Visit Staunton to see unique museums and theatres including The Frontier Culture Museum - an outdoor, living history museum with exhibits and programs that explore the diverse old world origins of the earliest immigrants, and The Blackfriars Playhouse - the world’s only re-creation of Shakespeare’s indoor theater.

Charlottesville is 1 hour’s drive away. Walking tours of downtown Charlottesville offer a deep look into early-American history. Visit the home of Thomas Jefferson at Monticello or his lasting academic legacy the University of Virginia. Dive into the history of American democracy at Montpelier, home of James and Dolley Madison - Father of the Constitution, Architect of the Bill of Rights, and America’s 1st First Lady.

The Virginia Safari Park is located in Natural Bridge. Virginia's only Drive-Thru Zoo is a unique 180-acre animal encounter park, home to over 1,000 exotic animals and where visitors are encouraged to interact with the animals by feeding them with specialty grain directly through the car windows!

Historical Richmond is a 2 hour drive away where you can enjoy museums, ghost walks, river cruises and Segway tours.

Colonial Williamsburg and Busch Gardens are a 4 hour drive away.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Our family lives in Cypress, TX and we love coming to the mountains to experience real seasons. In particular, we enjoy the cooler temperatures in summer. It is a great place to relax and have fun with family and friends all year round.

Why the Owner Chose Wintergreen, VA, USA:
We discovered the well-kept Virginia secret of Wintergreen in 2006, fell in love with the area and built our house there in 2007.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We have traveled the world but the Blue Ridge Mountains have a special place in our hearts and renting out our home there is our way of sharing our love of the Wintergreen resort with others in a setting which is relaxing, comforting and great for getting away from it all.
