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
Located in the quiet village of Stephenson, just a few miles north of Winchester, and a few minutes off I81.  The “Bungalow” style home was built in 1945.  With 1008 sq.ft. finished, this home offers 3 bedrooms, all with pine flooring and one (the main bedroom) has a closet.  The hall bath has been somewhat updated over the years.  The “country kitchen” has space for a small table, and leads directly to the rear porch and the basement stairway. The kitchen has not been updated over the years, but has adequate cabinet space and the refrigerator and stove will convey.  The dining area is a pass through of sorts, but has plenty of space for a dining table and hutch or corner cabinets.  The livingroom is quite spacious with access to the covered front porch and a bedroom.  Both living and dining rooms have pine flooring.  Much of the walls in the home are covered in paneling, and all is in very good condition.  The home is heated by oil, forced air.  There is no central air.  Cooling would be by window air conditioning. The basement is unfinished and offers space for the furnace, hot water tank, and hookup for the washer/dryer.  There is a sump pump here, and access to the side yard with walk-up steps.  There is also stairs from the basement up to the kitchen.  The home is connected to public water, and it is on it’s own septic system.  The development of Snowden Bridge is off in the distance, in back of the house.  Part of the proffering of that subdivision included the donation of acreage to Frederick County to construct a park area immediately behind the house (potentially ball diamonds), and an elementary school a little farther down the road.  The home is located on a cleared level lot, measuring .83 of an acre.  The lot extends beyond the section mowed (in back), and the property has a circular driveway. The exterior of the home is aluminum, and the roof is asphalt shingle.  The electrical and some plumbing have been updated.  The home does appear to be structurally sound, is quite livable, but needs a little attention to the exterior, particularly some painting of trim.  The lack of closet space in two bedrooms may be an issue with those buyers needing government backed financing.  The home would make a great investment, with the very affordable asking price of $119,900.  Future County improvements in the region may bring public sewer one day. The MLS# is FV8682332.  Directions to the property: I81 Rt.11 (Exit 317) At Winchester, Take Route 11N For 2 Miles. Turn Right Onto Old Charles Town Rd.
