This terrific mountaintop chalet is located in Ritter’s Hidden Valley, outside Capon Bridge, WV.  The acreage is mostly wooded with tall hardwoods. A spacious rear deck looks to the west, offering a mountain view.  You can’t see any neighbors from this elevated site.  This weekend getaway has been meticulously maintained by the owners. The exterior is painted T-111 wood siding (recently painted). A newer roof and replacement windows are recent upgrades. Entering under a covered front porch, you will notice new wood flooring in the kitchen/dining area. The oak cabinetry with green Formica countertops blend in well (also new upgrades in recent past) in this bright and cheerful area (the skylight helps bring in the natural light). A spacious bedroom is off the kitchen. The wood flooring carries into the vaulted great room.  A nice sized full bath is off the great room.  A free standing gas “fireplace” heater is centered in the great room, supplementing electric baseboard heaters throughout.  From the great room, you can access the spacious rear deck, taking advantage of privacy and the mountain views.  A staircase leads to a loft bedroom, carpeted and complete with new built-in bunks and an area for dressing or child’s play. Many of the furnishings will convey.  Ask for the list. There is some additional storage space in an area above the bathroom. Below the deck, from the exterior, is a large cistern storage tank for water. This 1000 gallon tank has been utilized for this family for the past 12 years without ever running dry. Also underneath, in the “crawl space” is access to plumbing utilities. The chalet is serviced by a septic system and drainfield. Total finished square footage for the interior of the cabin is 864 sq.ft.  Annual taxes paid to Hampshire County are $294.00.  There is no HOA, but annual dues are collected to maintain the 17 miles of roads within the community, and the swimming lake, fishing lake, tennis court, and common grounds.  The dues for this property are $400 annually.  ATV’s are allowed within the community, as is hunting.  Capon Bridge is the town nearest (15 minutes), (small town with 2 Dollar General type stores and 24 hour convenience with gas pumps), and the Cacapon River runs through Capon Bridge.  The MLS# is HS9644542.  The price is $119,900.  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).
