Cedar Creek Real Estate Licensed in Virginia and West Virginia 2300 Stroneride Road Winchester, VA 22601 540-667-1130
It is unusual to find a parcel this large, within easy commute, great access, and land that is all quite usable.  374 acres, just a minute off Rt.259 and about ½ hour to the Winchester Medical Center.  Kump Road, a state maintained gravel road, subdivides the land into 2 sides, with approximately 140 acres on the “Manor house” side, and approximately 230 acres on the opposite side.  The Manor side has a brisk creek (Lomans Run) and a pond very near the house.  The Manor house was undoubtedly very nice in it’s “heyday”, with center hall, large rooms on the main level with 10’ ceilings, and spacious bedrooms upstairs.  All the features you might expect with fireplaces/mantels, back stairs, wood floors. The home needs total and complete restoration.  Structurally, the home appears to still be fine.  History books suggest that Governor Herman G. Kump was born here in 1877 and grew up here.  There is a spring house on the property with an apartment above.  There is a well and septic on the property, servicing the home.  The land is very nice.  There are logging roads/trails through the property, 95% of which is wooded.  The land has been timbered a few times to keep the property in land management, taking advantage of Hampshire County’s agricultural-use tax breaks.  This property would be ideal for a family retreat, an organized hunt club, or for personal use with thoughts in mind of restoring the old brick house.  Please ask for a plat, topo overlay, and additional photos.  Annual taxes to Hampshire County are currently (with tax advantages).  The MLS# is HS8642039, and the price is $895,000. Directions to the property:  From Winchester, VA., drive Rt. 50W towards Capon Bridge, WV. At Gore, VA, after passing the Gore Fire Dept. watch for Rt.259S (a mile up on your left.) Take Rt. 259 approximately 12 Miles, turn Left Onto Mt. Airy Rd. (If you get to Milk Road, you passed Mt. Airy Rd, which has somewhat of a hidden entrance).  Drive .5M, Cross Bridge, Land Starts Right Away On L. Make Next L Onto Kump Rd. Land Fronts On Both Sides As You Drive Down Kump For Over A Mile. There are ribbons on the corners if you know where to look.  There is no physical address yet associated with the property.  The post office is Yellow Spring, the tax record states High View, and history books identify it as Capon Springs.  These three locations are in close proximity to each other.
