Cedar Creek Real Estate Licensed in Virginia and West Virginia 2300 Stroneride Road Winchester, VA 22601 540-667-1130
This is an amazing mountain cottage; very cozy and well planned out.  The front livingroom looks out over McDonald fishing lake, where the community has their annual fishing tournament.  You can also see the unique wooded covered bridge, crossing over Dillons Run Trout Stream.  This 3.25 acre lot borders the stream for over 150'.  The structure was built in 1983. The exterior of this beautiful cabin is wood siding, stained.  Finished square footage is approximately 992 sq.ft.  There is a high observation deck behind the home that has recently been refurbished.  It is great to relax in the portable hottub (the shed has all the goodies, and they convey with the sale). A sheer rock wall borders the top of the deck, and continues to climb towards the rear of the lot.  This offers a great buffer against any future neighbors, and gives your brave friends the opportunity to try scaling the wall!  Ask me to send you more photos, but they won't do this place justice.  The owner has done a tremendous job in adding personal touches that make this cottage a weekend "home away from home".  The kitchen and adjoining diningroom measures 24 x 15.  The pine floors are painted for contrast against the new cedar kitchen with granite countertops and skylights.   All of the appliances are here including microwave, gas stove, refrigerator, dishwasher and disposal.  There is also a laundry closet with stack washer/dryer. The dining area itself is quite spacious with a freestanding propane stove for heat.  The cabin also has baseboard heaters in all rooms.  There are two bedrooms, each perfectly sized at 12x9, also with pine flooring.  A full, updated bath is conveniently located off the dining area.  The front livingroom, 15x14, has pine underneath an area rug, a sofa with pullout sleeper, lounge chairs, an electric space heater, a spanse of windows offering that terrific view, and access to a covered 12x8 side porch. This is a turnkey opportunity. The owner is offering the furnishings to convey at settlement. There is no HOA in this recreational community, but there are road and park maintenance agreements that apply.  The annual fee to maintain the common ground areas within Ritter's are $400.  The community has a lot to offer with the swimming lake and beach area, picnic pavilion, playground, tennis court, fishing lake, hunting privileges, and 20 miles of roads to ride your ATVs.  Ritter's is approximately 2 hours away from the Beltway, giving very good road access by way of Winchester, VA (approximately 1/2 hour away).  The roads in Ritter's are gravel, but well maintained.  Annual taxes to Hampshire County, VA are $403.
