Cedar Creek Real Estate Marketed by Lynn Beightol III, REALTOR Licensed in Virginia and West Virginia 2300 Stroneride Road Winchester, VA 22601 540-667-1130
This comfortable “Chalet” style home could be used as a full time home, or a vacation home with thoughts of future retirement. The home was built in 1978. There was a later addition of the livingroom.  The exterior is wood siding, the roof is asphalt shingle.  The home is on a crawlspace.  There is a shed that is used as a workshop.  There is an oversized “carport” with very usable storage space. A previous owner had horses; the run-in-barn has a few stalls.  This 5 acre lot has some unique features. At the back end of the lot (downhill), a wet weather stream runs most of the year.  Up high on the bank, the owners have a swing strategically placed, to take in the wooded scenery below.  Enter the home through the laundry room.  Down the hall is a full bath.  A unique set of stairs (nautical, I am told) takes you to a loft area where potentially 2 bedrooms could be utilized (go through one room to get to the other).  This area is carpeted, has storage under the eaves, and has 2 skylights bringing in some natural light.  The stairs originate from the kitchen area.  The kitchen is fairly compact, clean and serves its purpose.  Off the kitchen is a glass sliding door leading to a rear deck.  Also off the kitchen is the dining area with a fireplace and much appreciated wood burning stove. This woodstove helps to heat the entire cabin.  Off the dining area is a nice sized livingroom with a custom coffered ceiling.  The mastersuite on this main level is quite nice, with a walk-in closet, full bath, and a separate seating area (built- in cabinets) and upgraded laminated flooring. Total finished square footage of the home is 1429 sq.ft. The home is heated by baseboard electric heaters.  There are window air conditioners and ceiling fans to help cool (tree cover keeps it fairly cool).  The home has its own septic system and well.  This property is in Ritter’s Hidden Valley, a recreational style subdivision that offers a swimming lake with a beach, playground, picnic pavilion, tennis court.  You are allowed to hunt within the community and ride your ATVs on the 17 miles of roads. There is no HOA here, but annual dues are collected to help maintain the roads, parks and lakes.  The fees on this lot are approximately $400 annually.  The annual real estate taxes to Hampshire County, WV are $563.  The List price of the property is $159,900.  The MLS# is HS9864722.  The physical address of the property is 29 Loudan Dr., Capon Bridge, WV 26711 Directions to the property:  35 minutes from Winchester, Va., less than 2 hours from Dulles Airport.   From Winchester, Va., Rt.50  West,  17 miles to Capon Bridge, W.Va., continue 2 miles to L on Dillons Run Rd., 3.5 miles to L on Loudan (Ritters Hidden Valley)  (Watch for  Hidden Valley sign, stone pillars, stockade fencing & satellite dish marking the entrance on your left)  Enter on Loudoun.  The property is the 3rd  driveway on your left.
