Cedar Creek Real Estate Licensed in Virginia and West Virginia 2300 Stroneride Road Winchester, VA 22601 540-667-1130
This beautiful mountain subdivision is located just 15 minutes from the Va./WVa. state line, out Rt.50 West from Winchester. These 10 lots are now offered by the original developer. Mr. Ritter purchased this 1600 acre mountain retreat almost 30 years ago. He, and nature, has carved out a wonderful, park-like setting, in Ritter's Hidden Valley. Dillons Run Stream, McDonald's Bass Lake, Tisinger Tennis Court, the main swimming lake w/beach, 20 miles of roads (atv's are allowed) great places to hike, hunt, swim & fish, are all taken in, within the community.  The 10 lots are ranging in size from 3 to 5 acres. Many offer great views and all are wooded with nice rock outcroppings. They are, for the most part, moderately sloped. Perfect for a weekend cabin, and, wildlife doesn't care if the land is level or not.  All lots are accessed by way of "4 Wheel Drive", or actually DeHaven Dr. The locals dubbed the road "4 Wheel" as it is recommended that you have one at your disposal to reach these lots. Actually the road is greatly improved, and except for being a little on the steep side, it is in very good condition. There are a couple of "switchbacks" in the road going up to make a little easier climb. I would hesitate going up the mountain in ice or snow, and wet roads could cause a little anxiety on the way back down, but once you get to the top the views are extraordinary, and it is quite peaceful. You can try it on your own, but you may catch me on many weekends in Ritter's. I don't mind driving to the top.  I can send you plats, but the individual lots are not yet marked. I am meeting with Mr. Ritter within the next few weeks to determine location of each lot. Clinton Ritter is also willing to owner finance at reasonable terms. All lots are priced from $3,000-$5000 per acre. The MLS# is HS5425025, and the price will show as $20,000, referencing the 5 acre lots. Park & road maintenance dues apply to each lot, at approximately $350. annually. NO Hoa. Directions to "4 Wheel Drive":  From Capon Bridge, W.Va.,  (and the bridge on the outskirts of town) drive 2 miles on Rt.50 towards Romney. Make a left on Dilllons Run Rd., drive 3.5 miles and make a left on Loudoun Dr., into Ritter's Hidden Valley. Stay on Loudoun at the first fork (to your right). This deadends on Old Mill Road. Make a left. Drive approximately 2 miles staying on this main road (Old Mill). When you come to the Bass Lake on your right (and the wooded covered bridge next to it) you have just missed DeHaven Dr. on your left (4-Wheel Dr.) There may be a wooden sign nailed to a tree, pointing out that this is DeHaven Dr.  Don't stop until you get to the top, and drive beyond the power lines to see the views that are possible. There is one little area of that first climb that is fairly steep. Just make sure you have decent brakes for the trip back down!
