This attractive Colonial style home was custom built by the owner, in 1991.  This owner as maintained the home very well over 24 years, and is offering a home that is in terrific condition.  The exterior is maintenance free vinyl, with the front porch featuring brick.  The roof is architectural shingle.  This owner will explain that with the correct ventilation and attic exhaust fans, the roof is in excellent condition with many more years of service.  There is an oversized rear deck coming off the familyroom. The rear yard is like an oasis, with many plantings, a large goldfish pond, garden shed (garage sized), and a number of shade trees.  The concrete driveway has been lined with a decorative and functional retaining wall.  Above the wall (side yard) is a large grassy green area.  This is a great place to put up the volleyball or badminton court or croquet. The deed suggests this area has an easement for an old cemetery, but there is no history or records that anyone has ever been buried there.  Let’s talk about the interior!  Through the front door rises a 2 story foyer with a tiled floor.  The formal livingroom is to the right.  A front bay window here offers nice mountain views.  The livingroom opens wide into the main level family room. The livingroom has hardwood flooring, the familyroom and kitchen area have top grade laminated flooring.  The familyroom features a wood burning brick fireplace with antique wood mantel and surround.  There are French doors here, leading out to a very large rear deck.  A step up takes you to a sunny breakfast area.  Here you have a bay window, and a ceiling opening, extending 16 ft. high with a large window letting more natural light in.  The breakfast area also has a large pantry closet.  This area also opens wide to the spacious “U” shaped kitchen featuring cherry finished cabinetry and granite countertops.  A breakfast bar extends out over the base cabinets.  This area also gives access to a formal diningroom. This room has hardwood flooring, a chandelier, chair-rail molding and a closet.  The original plans call for this room could be an optional 4th bedroom or dining.  The homeowner has chosen the formal dining.  To the rear of the kitchen is a separate laundry or mudroom (direct access to the oversized 2 car garage), and farther down the hall is a full, main level bathroom (shower).  The upgraded laminated floor extends to this area.  Much of this main level was recently painted.  Upstairs are three bedrooms.  The mastersuite is quite spacious, with a large walk-in closet and a full bath (shower).  This is a split bedroom plan with the master on one side, and the other two bedrooms across a “bridge”. These 2 bedrooms are really a nice size, and they share a full, hall bath.  The entire upstairs has new, top grade, laminated flooring.  The “bridge” lets you see down into the front foyer area, and into the breakfast space.  There is also a lower level (basement), 75% finished.  This is divided into two areas, one with built-in shelving and cabinets for the TV entertaining area.  This area has vinyl floor, and direct access to the backyard.  This is level, walk- out to a brick paved area under the back deck.  There is also access from this area into an unfinished “work shop” area with the hotwater tank & furnace, not a large room, but adequate.  The other side of the basement is also finished with vinyl flooring, and is where this owner had his billiard table.  Also offered is a spacious full bath, with a soaking tub.  This area also has a room under the front porch, unfinished and shelved, suitable for canning or storage.  There is a stand-up freezer in this room. Most of the interior windows have been replaced with double pane, double hung windows.  The heat is by electric heat pumps for heating air cooling.  The property has city water and sewer.  There is no HOA here, so no annual dues have to be paid.  Annual real estate taxes to Warren County, VA are $2108.  The MLS# is WR8652914.  The price is $319,900.
