Cedar Creek Real Estate Marketed by Lynn Beightol III, REALTOR Licensed in Virginia and West Virginia 2300 Stroneride Road Winchester, VA 22601 540-667-1130
Mountain top/mountain side.  This is 99.77 acres with a panoramic view looking to the east.  There is a locked gate at the entrance into Great North Mountain Wilderness, at the top of Fall Run Lane. Through the locked gate (to the left), Great Mountain Lane cuts through the front of the property with approximately 700’ of quite usable land below the road.  The land has over 1500’ fronting on Great Mountain Lane. On the top side of the road there is a small hunting cabin, quaint and quite comfortable.  Turn up the driveway just a little farther down the road, and you will crest the driveway hill at the front of this fabulous log home.  Step up to the front porch and turn to gather in the scenic views of the valley below and the mountains in the distance. This long, covered front porch is where you might find yourself relaxing, or entertaining.  The owner built this log home in 2001, using 8” pine logs, pretreated and post treated;  this is a top of the line custom built log home in an unusual setting.  Entering the front door, you will notice the vaulted ceiling, the stone fireplace with woodstove, gathering in the warmth of the exposed log and wood trim interior. The livingroom has well placed windows for plenty of light to enter.  The kitchen is very nice with matching soft maple cabinetry, center island, and upgraded appliances.  The flooring is hardwood, throughout the main level, along with the mastersuite and loft upstairs.  The main level features an oversized guest bedroom with access to a full hall bath. There is also a large linen/storage closet and a separate laundry room. Upstairs is the mastersuite, with a huge walk-in closet & custom shelving. You can catch that panoramic view from the bedroom window.  The master bath is also on this upper level along with an open loft area that would make a great home office or seating area for the master. Total finished square footage of the home is 1600 sq.ft.  The home is built on a crawl space, and is situated on solid rock. No structural issues here!  There is a rear deck that reaches across the entire back of the house.  The covered front porch also spans the length of the house.  The entire home was recently re-stained, with porch and deck freshly painted.  The roof is a 40+ year architectural shingle.  All windows and doors are top of the line. There is a detached garage/workshop, and a newly constructed 60 x 24, (2) double bay garage w/concrete floor.  The new garage has cedar siding.  There is a large parking pad between the house and the garages.  The home is heated by propane gas, forced air, and the woodstove.  The electric heatpump cools the home.  There is a generator, serviced by the propane, that runs through its scheduled cycle to make sure it does the job should power go out.  Also, unique to the property, are the 18 solar panels mounted on the roof, that feeds electricity back into the system.  The Power Company purchased this generated power, and sends you a quarterly check that helps towards utilities. The property is serviced by its own well and septic system. The owner keeps the land in forestry use to get a tax break. A buyer can continue the same use. With “in land” use, the taxes are $2300 annually. There is an HOA fee to maintain the roads and the security gate.  That fee is $350 annually.  There are no restrictions against hunting.  The owner has 3 strategically placed treestands around the property.  There is an abundance of wildlife, including deer, bear and turkey. If you are up to the challenge, bring your hiking shoes and explore the land. The list price is $575,000. The MLS# is FV9776901.
