Oh WOW!   I am sure that will be your reaction when taking in the views from this mountaintop acreage.  This parcel contains 20.7 acres in Dillons Mountain Estates at Hidden Valley.  There are (5) of these 20 acre mountaintop parcels that were originally developed back in 2004.  The neighboring subdivisions of Ritter’s Hidden Valley and White Cliffs were established from the 1970s.  Mr. Ritter developed these larger parcels later, and entitled land owners to use the amenities of Ritter’s Hidden Valley.  There is no HOA here, but road and park maintenance agreements are in effect to maintain the 17 miles of gravel roads, the fishing and swimming lakes, tennis court, picnic pavilion and playground, and the trout stream.  Dues are approximately $400 annually.  Hunting is allowed. You can also ride your ATVs on the 17 miles of roads within the community.  What is so unique about this 20+ acre lot is that 75% of the land is fairly level, some tall hardwoods, little underbrush, making most of the land quite usable.  The wooded land falls off the back side (not steep/steep), creating a buffer from the 1000’s of acres of wooded land below.  This lot owner has cut a driveway into the property, and has created several trails through the land for trail riding with your ATVs.  The owner has also erected (3) separate “oversized” sheds on the property; 1 serving as a “bunkhouse”.  The 3 structures, along with a neat campsite, will convey with the property.  Access is really good to the property, again, using the roads through Ritter’s Hidden Valley.  Through most of the year, you will not need a 4WD vehicle to get to the land. Ask me for a plat and the covenants/ road & park maintenance agreements.  Electricity runs in front of the lot.  A well (or cistern) and septic will have to be installed if you plan to build.  There is an abundance of wildlife here offering great potential for hunting the land.   Annual taxes to Hampshire County, WV are $651.  The MLS# is HS8576895.   The price is $120,000.   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). At bottom of hill, make left on Old Mill Rd.  Follow to 1st concrete bridge over  stream (High Cliff Dr.) Take High Cliff to top. Make left on Ritter Dr. At next intersection, make sharp right turn to stay on Ritter (not  Halderman). Stay right at next intersection also to continue on Ritter (Not Haines). Stay on Ritter, past Mayflower, underneath the power lines. Continue on Ritter Dr.  The property will be on your right. You will see an opening into the land with 3 “shed structures” within site.  This is the lot (Lot #2).  The next lot is also available (Lot #1), different owner.  Bring a family member or friend.  That would give you potentially 40 acres of fantastic mountaintop land.  There is a Cedar Creek Real Estate sign posted.
