Cedar Creek Real Estate Licensed in Virginia and West Virginia 2300 Stroneride Road Winchester, VA 22601 540-667-1130
This cute “cottage” was originally built in 1975.  It has recently undergone renovations and has a new kitchen, updated baths, new carpet and freshly painted. There are new windows and doors throughout. The home features 4 bedrooms (you have to go through one of the bedrooms to get to a rear bedroom) and 2 full baths. One of the bathrooms is off the largest bedroom.  The kitchen has new oak finished cabinets and a new vinyl floor.  The heat is electric baseboard (no air conditioning).  There is a nice side deck off the dining area.  There is a full, unfinished basement with a rear garage door that offers a space for your boats, kayaks, mower. The washer/dryer hookup and utilities are in the basement. There is a hookup for a woodstove also.  The exterior of the home is vinyl siding, and the roof is standing seam/metal.   This is on 3 city lots, with public water and sewer hookups.  The land is cleared, with a gentle slope to the rear.  The property backs to an old, vacated railroad bed owned by C&O Railroad.  The old tracks have been removed but the railroad still drives down this path to maintain other parts of the active lines running through Paw Paw.  Beyond this “path” there is a 6’ dropoff to level land below that fronts on the Potomac River.  Per the owner, the railroad allows adjacent land owners to utilize this bottom land to access the river.  This land is wooded, obviously in the 100 year floodplain, (the house is not in the floodplain) but offers an opportunity to have a campsite, and gives you direct, level access right into the river.  Within 5 minutes of the property is the C&O Canal towpath.  You can ride your bike, or hike all the way to Georgetown (DC), or hike the opposite direction to Cumberland, Md.  The Paw Paw Tunnel is a historic landmark, .8 mile long running through the mountains.  Don’t miss seeing this one if you are looking for an interesting weekend vacation home.  Annual real estate taxes paid to Morgan County, WV (for all 3 lots) is $973.  This list price is $79,900.  The MLS# is MO8549144 Directions to the property:  Going into Paw Paw (West Virginia) on Rt.9 (from Bloomery, VA or Berkeley Springs, WV), make a left onto Wilson Street.  Wilson deadends onto Potomac Street (one way).  Follow around to 269 Potomac St. on your left. There is a Cedar Creek Real Estate sign posted.
