Cedar Creek Real Estate Licensed in Virginia and West Virginia 2300 Stroneride Road Winchester, VA 22601 540-667-1130
What a unique property this is.  Well suited for the weekend or vacation home buyer, but could be a full time residence for a single or couple with an addition of having a well drilled.  The present owners purchased this shell in the early 90’s and had a reputable and talented contractor finish out the project.  This is a 9 sided cottage (nonagon shape) that sits right on Dillons Run Trout Stream.   The structure has a full perimeter deck.  You can hear the “creek” rushing and see it from the deck.  This is within Ritter’s Hidden Valley, a terrific recreational subdivision just outside Capon Bridge, WV.  The cottage exterior is Hardiplank (top grade composite siding) and the roof is architectural shingle.   Windows are placed strategically to get natural light and creek views from the inside.  The interior is covered with knotty pine tongue & groove wood panels with drywall above.  The main level makes great use of the 545 sq.ft. with a nicely flowing kitchen/dining/living combo.  The home is quite inviting and very comfortable.  The bedroom with sitting area is on the upper level, with an interesting ceiling that you have to physically see to appreciate the craftsmanship here.  This upper level has a closet with future bath planned and plumbed.  The loft bedroom overlooks the “greatroom” below.  Again, wood surfaces and architectural details make the spaces very inviting and interesting.  The home is heated and cooled by electric heatpump.  There is an installed septic system.  The home has been plumbed, but a well has not been drilled.  Estimates have been prepared of up to $10,000 to install the well and connect it to the home (again, lines in place in the house).  There is a main level bath w/shower/sink/toiled already installed.  Just waiting for the water source.  This “cottage” is situated on a 3.8 acre lot at the very end of the subdivision (non – thoroughfare).  The adjoining 3.8 acre lot is also included in this sale.  That lot is also 3.8 acres.  These are wooded lots, both with the creek frontage.  The land extends across the main road also.  You can hunt on your land, ride your ATVs on the roads within the subdivision, and enjoy community amenities which include fishing and swimming lakes, with a beach area, picnic pavilion and tennis court.  The community does not have an HOA, but they do collect annual dues to maintain the park areas and roads.  That fee is $400 for each lot, annually.  Currently, taxes on the two lots paid to Hampshire County, WV are less than $600 annually.  The MLS# is WVHS113312.  The price is $130,000 (includes the extra lot, which is buildable).  The property would be considered as in the 100 year floodplain due to the proximity to the creek.  The cottage is built on piers with concrete block “fill in”, creating a crawlspace.  The main floor of the cottage is most definitely out of the 100 year plain, but flood insurance may be required, if you have a mortgage.  Ask for many more photos. Directions to the property.   From Capon Bridge, drive Rt.50W (towards Augusta/Romney) for 2 miles. Make a left onto Dillons Run Rd.

The home is at the end of that driveway.  The physical address of the property is 3622 Old Mill Road, Capon Bridge, WV 26711.   Please contact me for an appointment.  There is no real estate sign posted.    (If you decide to check out the area, be careful of the GIS directions.
