What a neat place this is.  The owner has made numerous improvements over the years they have owned it which includes a couple of additions (done very nicely), along with many upgrades.  Ritter’s Hidden Valley has a mixture of full time homeowners along with many weekenders.  The owner of this cabin does make it a full time residence for 6 months out of the year.  The cabin is located high on one of the ridges in Ritter’s Hidden Valley.  The gravel roads are well maintained, and access should not be a problem throughout the year. The 6.01 acre wooded lot is very private.  The adjoining 2 lots (10 acres total) are also owned by this cabin owner, and could be available for sale at under $20,000 per lot.  Construction began on the chalet in 1983 (per tax records), but really completed for occupancy around 1990.  2 additions were completed in the mid and late 2000’s.  The exterior of the chalet is T111 painted wood.  The roof is asphalt shingle.  All of the windows and exterior doors have been replaced within the past 10 years.  Skylights have also been added for additional light. Laminated flooring graces the living/dining/kitchen area.  The kitchen is newer with golden oak cabinetry and nice appliances.  One bathroom is new, the other bath has been totally renovated, enlarged and includes space for the washer/dryer.  The master bedroom was a later addition, with vaulted ceiling and an attached sunroom / office.  The master is quite spacious, carpeted, with a walk-in closet.  A second bedroom is also on the main level, a perfect size for overnight guests.  A long, side deck with overhead trellis leads from the parking area to an entry with a more recent addition.  Enter into a nice den area, with a passthrough to a full bath.  The passthrough also leads into the dining/kitchen area.  This area offers a quiet area to relaxing, or potential office space.  The flooring here is carpeted. The bath is vinyl.  Numerous windows in this area allow for an abundance of natural light coming in.  Heating sources range from propane wall and floor heaters to a wall unit offering air conditioning and heat, and a woodstove (livingroom). There is a pulldown stair that leads to 2 finished rooms on the upper level with limited headroom, but perfect for children to sleep or play.  Total square footage in the chalet is 1502 sq.ft. without the upper level. There is also a detached garage/workshop, measuring 32 x 32.  This is really a nice amenity, offering terrific storage.  The walkway from the garage to the house looks out over a grassy sideyard with chainlink fencing.  Perfect containment for kids and pets!  The property has a cistern system as a water source, and does have an approved septic system installed.  There is no HOA here in Ritter’s, but an annual fee is collected for road and park maintenance.  That fee is around $400 annually.  Each lot owned does require this annual fee.  Annual taxes to Hampshire County, WV are $533.  The price is $131,500.  The MLS# is HS9701463.  Directions to the property:   45 minutes from Winchester, Va., less than 2 hours from Dulles Airport.   From Winchester, Va., Rt.50  West, 17 miles to Capon Bridge, W.Va., continue 2 miles to L on Dillons Run Rd., 3.5 miles to L on Loudoun (Ritters Hidden Valley)  (Watch for Hidden Valley sign, stone pillars, stockade fencing & satellite dish marking the entrance on your left)  Enter on Loudoun, at  1st fork continue to right on Loudoun (not left on Davis).
