This all brick home was built in 1971.  A previous owner used it as his week-end getaway, but the present owner has built a new home on land behind this one, and has had tenants in here the last few years.  The home has plenty of unique features, but does seem some finishing work.  The floor plan is somewhat unusual, and I can see a new owner potential changes some walls around to make it “their own”.  The home was built on a concrete slab.  It is serviced by its own septic system and well.  Entering in the front door the first thing you will notice is the cozy feel of the living area centered on a brick fireplace and walls covered in brick or barnboard, and beamed ceilings.  The galley kitchen opens into the living space with a long breakfast island.  The dining area is also opened to the livingroom and has picture windows looking out onto the neighbor’s farmland and pond below.  The dining area also gives direct access to a rear covered patio, with brick built-in bar-b-que.  Down the hall, a tiled hall bath (shower) services bedrooms 2 & 3.  The master bedroom is also down this hall, with its own full bath.  Through the master is a huge room (great room let’s call it), with a pellet stove, picture and bay windows, laundry area, and direct access to the covered breezeway.  Reconfiguring this area could add a 4th bedroom, office, or other desired space. This area has recently had the carpet removed, with some other floor covering planned.  Many of the windows in this home have been replaced in the past few years.  The roof shingles have been replaced also.  Some wiring has been updated. The heating is by electric baseboard heat.  There is no central air.  Total finished square footage is 2128 sq.ft.  The garage is very much oversized, with potential 3 car parking.  There is a workshop area behind the garage, and another room for storage. The covered breezeway and the covered concrete patio would make excellent areas to entertain.  The home is situated on 2.66 acres (some of the land runs on the other side of the road.  The owner of this home has her new home located on the back 35 acres.  Next to this property is 100+ acres in a conservation easement (won’t be developed).  The road out front has no thoroughfare, and dead ends in a short distance.  There are a few fruit trees on the land, and there is NO HOA, or restrictions.  Annual real estate taxes paid to Hampshire County, WV is $1811.  That figure will come down considerably if you make this your primary residence.  The property is approximately 10 minutes from Capon Bridge, WV, and is about 20 minutes from the Winchester, VA Medical Center.  State maintained roads (Catlett & Pleasant Grove Roads are gravel) give you access.  The MLS# is HS8674585. The price is $179,900. DIRECTIONS TO THE PROPERTY: From Rt.50 at the VA / WV state line (coming from Winchester), continue on Rt.50W towards Capon Bridge.  1 mile ahead is Timber Ridge Road.  Another mile farther is Smokey Hollow Road.  Either will take you to the property.  If you take Timber Ridge, drive approximately 2 mile, very sharp “S” curves, look for Pleasant Grove Road on your left.  Drive 1 mile, watch for Catlett Road on your right. Take Catlett until you see the property on your left, just before the road ends.  From Smokey Hollow, 2 miles, right onto Pleasant Grove Road, 2 miles to left onto Catlett Road.  The physical address of the property is 387 Catlett Road, Capon Bridge, WV 26711
