Cedar Creek Real Estate Licensed in Virginia and West Virginia 2300 Stroneride Road Winchester, VA 22601 540-667-1130
This unique property is in Trails End Subdivision, on the edge of the Virginia/West Virginia state line, off Rt.55W, west of Strasburg, VA.  The home may be compact in size (1518 sq.ft. on 3 levels), but warm and cozy inside and out.  This out of state owner had recently purchased this property to be closer to family in the northern Virginia region.  Their plans have now changed, and after much renovating, they are sad to say goodbye!  All the changes were made with private enjoyment in mind with these owners.  Starting at the top, a new architectural shingle roof has been added (40 year roof).   The home is log, originally constructed in 1991. A new sunporch was renovated, adding hardwood flooring, baseboard heat, new windows, new doors, log siding, with access to a large wrap-around deck with railings (pressure treated, ready for stain this coming summer season). The deck offers terrific mountain views, both south and north. You enter from ground level (covered patio area) into the newly renovated kitchen (new cabinets, countertops), with solid wood flooring, and all new appliances.  The utility room contains a new "hot water on demand tankless system", along with a new washer/dryer combination ($2K item!).  The kitchen area wraps around to a dining area with free standing woodstove.  The stairway takes you to the next level where the full bath and living room is located.  This also is an "L" shape, given you space for additional bunk or pull-out sofa space. Two new sets of French doors leads to the side deck.  This area has tall vaulted, beamed wood ceilings (with skylight) with stairs to a loft  bedroom overlooking this living room space. The loft bedroom is compact, but quite adequate.  The rooms are heated with baseboard electric heat. A window unit cools the cabin, but this is in the mountains with nice hardwood tree cover.  The property utilizes a private well and septic system.  The septic will accept 3 bedrooms, so future additions to the cabin would certainly be allowable. This is a safe community, with at least 3 of the dozen homes valued in the $Million dollar range.  Lot sizes range from 10 acres+.  There is no HOA, but dues are collected annually to maintain the roads ($363.)  The roads within the community are gravel, well maintained.  The developer does remove snow during winter storms. The owner does have a monitoring system installed whereas they can detect access from a remote site. Other options are available with this monitorint system.  There are some restrictions/covenants in place (protects your investment).  Ask me to send these to you along with a plat and additional photos.  Annual taxes to Frederick County, VA are $826. The MLS# is FV8059900.  The price is $219,900.
