Cedar Creek Real Estate Licensed in Virginia and West Virginia 2300 Stroneride Road Winchester, VA 22601 540-667-1130
This great weekend home was built in 1978.  It is ituated on 5 “interesting” acres in Ritter’s Hidden Valley, Capon Bridge, West Virginia.  The home has T-111 wood siding and has a newer architectural shingled roof.  Dillons Run Trout Stream runs through the property, taking a wide sweep through the side yard and within a few feet of the rear deck. Yes, you can literally fish for trout from your rear deck. The stream is stocked by the Department of Natural Resources, when funds are available.  A couple of acres of level, grassy land surround the house.  Across the road there is a path that leads to a level knoll on top the mountain. The owners have created a unique gun range, with close to 300’ of level land to shoot at various targets.  The path is wide enough to get your ATV to the top.  It is a nice, challenging walk to the top, but the switchbacks make it easier with the ATV.  The community doesn’t have an HOA, but there are a few covenants and restrictions that mostly add to the ambience of this hidden retreat in the mountains.  You can hunt, shoot, ride your ATVs on over 17 miles of gravel roads.  There are swimming & fishing lakes, with a beach area, playground, picnic pavilion and a tennis court.  Your family and friends will appreciate what this neat little getaway has to offer.  The home has over 1200 ft. of finished floor space.   The interior is rustic, with dining area off the kitchen and a stairway to the loft. The loft, although somewhat confined in headroom, offers sleeping space for guests or a place for the kids to hang out.  There is a spacious main level bedroom, full bath (whirlpool tub & separate shower), and an oversized greatroom with a woodstove insert in the brick faced fireplace.  There is a rear deck off the greatroom that offers a great place to sit by the wide, everflowing creek.  The cabin has a propane fired, hot water heating system (very efficient and very warm) . Open the windows for a nice breeze to help cool in the summer months.  The interior has a lot of exposed pine, making for a comfortable and warm atmosphere.  There is no HOA here, but there is a maintenance committee that collects an annual fee to maintain the roads and the park areas.  That yearly fee is $400.  Paying this fee also gives you access to the stocked fishing lake and the swimming lake/beach and the amenities that Ritter’s has to offer.   Annual taxes to Hampshire County, WV are $350.  (yes, unbelievable) The property is under 15 minutes to the VA/WV state line, and about ½ hour from the Winchester Medical Center.  The MLS# is HS10252137, and the list price is $129,900.  DIRECTIONS TO THE PROPERTY:  From Winchester, VA, Rt.50 West, it is about 17 miles to Capon Bridge, WV.  Driving through Capon Bridge, continue another 2 miles on Rt.50W and make a left onto Dillons Run Road.  Drive 3.5 miles, and make a left into the subdivision on Loudan Drive.  Stay right onto Loudan at the 1st fork in the road.  After a short distance, Loudan ends, and you will make a left onto Old Mill Road.  Watch for the 2nd bridge over Dillons Run  (you will have passed the swimming lake, tennis court, small clubhouse), which is Ritter’s Valley Drive. Turn right onto the bridge to cross over the creek, and stay on this road for over a mile.  Watch for the property on your left.
