Cedar Creek Real Estate Marketed by Lynn Beightol III, REALTOR Licensed in Virginia and West Virginia 2300 Stroneridge Road Winchester, VA 22601 540-667-1130
This neat cabin/cedar rancher is situated on 20 wooded acres.  This cedar sided home was built in 1990, and has basically been a one-owner home.  The present owner just purchased within the past few months, but health issues and the desire to be closer to family has necessitated the sale.   This home is in fantastic condition inside and out.  The home features one bedroom and one bath on the main level.  Total finished square footage is a compact 924 sq.ft., but all the necessities are here.  The spacious livingroom is carpeted and has a built-in entertainment center.  The "U" shaped kitchen has the needed appliances, very ample cabinet space, a pantry closet, and dining area that allows you to watch nature and mountain views while you enjoy your meal. Both kitchen and the full bath are quite modern.  The main bedroom is very large, with a nice sitting area, and double closet space.  The lower level also has a guest bedroom, includes a closet, and access to a half-bath.  This lower level also features large unfinished space with washer/dryer, a very nice woodstove (I am sure this will heat the entire house), a hobby room which includes a gun-safe built into the wall.  This home is on septic. There is a well on the property (status unknown), but the home utilizes (2) 1750 gallon cisters capturing water from the room of the garage. Water is fed through a filtering system and pumped to the house, with chlorination added.  While not potentially for drinking, it works great for all other water usage.  The heating system is baseboard electric heat, with window airconditioning.  I am not so sure you would need air conditioning with this mountain location and tree cover.  The owner also wanted me to mention that the land is full of tall standing oak and poplar, with potential for a nice harvest in a few years.  The basement also has direct access to the rear yard (level, walk-out access). The basement also has a propane gas heater.  There is a hookup for a generator in the basement, and the generator is stored in a shelter just outside the door.  The exterior of the home is cedar siding. There is a fabulous covered side deck which allows for views of the distant mountains and a nice little stocked pond.  Also on the property is a Lester brand metal building, measuring 60x24.  There is a 4 bay garage, full concrete floor,  large workshop area with stairs to storage above.  There is also a "lean-to" beside the building for outside storage.  The community is called North Mountain Estates.  There is no HOA here, and road maintenance is by voluntary contribution.  There is a road maintenance agreement alluded to.  Annual real estate taxes to Frederick County are $999.18.  The MLS# is FV8303106.  The price is $219,900.  Directions to the property:   From Winchester, VA, take Rt.50 West (towards Capon Bridge, WV).  Drive 10 miles.  Watch for the Gore Post office on your left. Make the next left onto Gore Road.  Drive .5M, and make a left onto Back Creek Road. Drive 6.4 miles, and turn left onto Sawlog Rd. (cross a small bridge over the creek, it should be your next left. )  Take Sawlog 1M (past Moorehead Rd) to a driveway on the left that shows 523 Sawlog Road (sign on a tree), Gore, VA 22637.  The road is gravel/dirt, but fairly well maintained.  You will not need a 4WD vehicle to get here.  There is a Cedar Creek Real Estate sign posted.  Please call me for an appointment. In close proximity is the Cove campground, offering swimming, fishing, snowtubing, and other family related activities, and the BOA Boyscout Camp.  You travel right by the entrance to both of these properties, on Back Creek Road.
