Ritter’s Hidden Valley is a recreational, mountain subdivision, not far from Capon Bridge, WV.  The VA/WV state line is under 20 minutes.  This 1600 acre subdivision has very nice community amenities.  Swim in the lake with a beach, playground, picnic pavilion, tennis court.  Participate in the annual fishing tournament at the stocked fishing lake.  Drive your ATVs throughout the community roads and hunt/shoot on your property, and other undeveloped lots, with permission.  This 5 acre lot being offered is on the mountain top, mostly wooded, with nice rock outcroppings.  Neighboring homes have built out on the rock ledge, affording you the opportunity to pick up a nice mountain view.  A couple of the photographs are taken from adjoining homeowners.  There are a handful of full time residents in close proximity, but most of the 150 homes within the subdivision are being utilized as weekend or vacation cabins.  Ritter’s Hidden Valley doesn’t have a homeowner’s association, but the Maintenance Corporation does collect an annual fee to maintain the roads, lakes, park and common areas.  That fee for this lot is $400 annually.  A small price to pay for what is offered.  This neat 5 acre lot has a level “bench” area between the road and the rock ledge in which to build a nice cabin or home. The land tiers down  from the ledge, with plenty of land to enjoy hunting activities or just use as a buffer from the lot down below.  The land has tall hardwoods and pines.  There is plenty of wood here to feed the firepit or to use in your future fireplace, woodstove, or wood burning furnace.  Don’t miss seeing this lot.  It is the only lot presently available within Ritter’s that offers this terrific view.  Electric is available from the street.  You will have to add septic and your water source (well or cistern). There are minimal covenants & restrictions.  Annual real estate taxes paid to Hampshire County, WV are $233.  The MLS# is WVHS113194. The price is quite affordable at $31,900.  Ask for a plat & covenants.  Directions to the property:  (Don’t depend on the GPS.  It will sometimes send you through a neighboring subdivision where access is not available, and may direct you into a non-entrance into Ritter’s.  Use these directions):  From Winchester, drive Rt.50W towards Romney, WV.
