Cedar Creek Real Estate Licensed in Virginia and West Virginia 2300 Stroneride Road Winchester, VA 22601 540-667-1130
This mountain retreat is quite unique in location and features.  Perched on the edge at the top of “4 Wheel Drive” in Ritter’s Hidden Valley, this 1991 chalet is an affordable weekend getaway. The rear deck is in the treetops and offers a nice mountain view.  This “one owner” home offers peacefulness and privacy.  The 5 acre wooded lot falls off sharply below, runs across Old Mill at the bottom and actually borders Dillons Run Trout Stream.  The deck wraps around to the back side. Entering in the front, you are in the spacious kitchen, more modern than many of the cabins you find within this recreational subdivision, offering nice oak finished cabinetry and ceramic tile floor.  Off the kitchen is a half-bath, and a dining area.  Farther down the hall you enter into the greatroom, with a vaulted ceiling, pellet stove, and glass sliders leading to the rear deck.  Off the back hall is the main level bedroom and full bath. The bedroom has a slider onto the side deck.   From the greatroom, you can climb stairs to a very spacious upper loft.  The loft has a wet sink, storage under the eaves, and plenty of space for overnight guests. The vaulted ceiling here also features skylights that let in plenty of natural light.  The home has over 1,000 sq.ft. of finished floor space. Heating is baseboard electric.  There is a private septic system and a cistern for the water source.  The exterior of the chalet is stained T-111 siding.  The more recent roof is architectural shingle.  Annual taxes to Hampshire County, WV are an amazingly low $328.  The access road to the top is fairly steep and may be inaccessible in inclement weather.  A four wheel drive vehicle is suggested.  The community, Ritter’s Hidden Valley, offers a swimming lake with beach, playground, picnic pavilion and tennis court.  There is also a stocked fishing lake.  There are 17 miles of roads within the community to ride your ATVs.  Hunting is also allowed.  The price is $129,900.  The MLS# is HS10331700.   Ask me to send you more photos.
