Cedar Creek Real Estate Licensed in Virginia and West Virginia 2300 Stroneride Road Winchester, VA 22601 540-667-1130
This “open air” cottage has the most relaxing location on the Cacapon River, in Hampshire County, WV.  Built in 1948, but upgraded over the years, the interior of the cottage will both surprise you in a pleasant way.  There is hardwood flooring throughout, with the except of the tiled entrance and some tiling in the kitchen.  The livingroom features a gas-lot fireplace, vaulted ceiling, some wood (pine) finished walls, and an open feel all the way out to the river.  There is a screened porch at the rear of the home, extending in length beyond the end of the house. You can open French doors in the kitchen and bedroom and looked through the screened porch, right to the river. The river is fairly deep here (over 8’), with plenty of options for recreation.  The large bath with walk-in closet features a “sunken” tub.  There is a den/office that could suffice as a guest or 2nd bedroom.  The home measures 42’ x 25’, giving you 1060 sq.ft. finished, without the rear porch.  The exterior of the cottage is wood siding, the roof is asphalt shingle.  A utility room offers a “stack” washer & dryer.  Heat is by propane wall heaters, plug in heaters and the gas fireplace. The cottage has a septic system, and is supplied water by the community spring.  The owner here has also installed a 1500 gallon tank for supplemental water supply. This cottage is in the Bubbling Spring community, whereas the waterfront lots (2 lots) is leased from a private owner at approximately $750 annually.  The community originated as riverfront campsites, but lot renters were allowed to build cabins and cottages.  There are rules in place that allow the landowner to purchase the structures at fair market value if so desired, or if the lease is not renewed.  The landowner typically has no desire to purchase the cottages, so they are offered for sale. A rule is also in place that the cottage won’t be occupied as full time residences from September through April.  The river is less than 20’from the cottage, creating an instance where flood insurance may be desired.  Call me for additional details.  There are no real estate taxes owned to Hampshire County WV on the structures.  The land owner pays annual real estate taxes on the lot.  The list price on the cottage is $59,900.  The MLS# is HS10029962.  THE OWNER ALSO HAS A SECOND COTTAGE ON AN ADJOINING LOT, FOR SALE.  The owner would like to find a buyer that might be interested In both properties.  The 2nd cottage would make a fantastic guest cottage for family or friends.  Also quite rustic, with 1 bedroom, full bath, vaulted ceiling in the livingroom with a large woodburning fireplace, and a freestanding woodstove.   The kitchen is quite adequate.  A screened porch wraps around the back side, also with great views of the Cacapon River.  This unit has wood siding, a metal roof, and a septic system.  The water is also supplied by the community spring, but also has access to the holding tank of the cottage next door (as described above). This cottage is also located on a rented lot with annual rent of approximately $400.  This unit is being offered at $24,000.  The owner desires to sell the larger cottage first, or hoping to appeal to a single owner for both properties.
