Cedar Creek Real Estate Licensed in Virginia and West Virginia 2300 Stroneride Road Winchester, VA 22601 540-667-1130
Lake Jackson.  This unique neighborhood is privately tucked away, unknown to most of the heavily populated Manassas area, in Prince William County, VA.  Lake Jackson, a reservoir, was created by the Lake Jackson Dam on the Occoquan River.  Check out local history on the Internet. Beginning back in the 1950’s, the 800 acres is now the location of over 600 homes, cottages and cabins.  Originally created as a summer escape for the wealthy, Lake Jackson has become a year-around residence for many residents. This cabin has had a couple of modifications over the years. Originally constructed in 1958, the styling has become more contemporary on the exterior but remains very rustic on the inside.  Most of the interior has exposed wood surfaces, including the pine flooring.  A bedroom, full bath, kitchen (efficiency sized), dining area complete with stone fireplace with free standing woodstove, and livingroom occupy the main level.  There is also a mud room with washer & dryer hookup.  An open staircase gives access to an upper level with a large landing (sitting area), leading to a rear bedroom.  Total finished square footage is 1326 sq.ft. The property is serviced by a private well and septic. Heating is by baseboard electric heat.  The exterior of the home is T111 wood siding, with architectural roof shingles.  There is a crawl space foundation.  A storage/potting shed is attached.  There is a detached garage/workshop, matching the home. The lot size is .40 acre. Ivy covers the ground, with large shade trees dotting the yard.  The access road into the property is maintained by local, voluntary contribution.  The Lake and Dam area is just one row away from this property.  There is a “cove” nearby where an assigned boat slip is available.  The lake also has a beach area for use by local residents. Boating, fishing, swimming are many of the recreational activities enjoyed by the locals.  I will be happy to send you more photos.  Please just ask.  The asking price is $130,000, well below the assessed value of $173,300. Annual taxes are $2487.  The cottage does need some sprucing up, but what a great location near the DC suburbs.  Directions to the property:  Off I66, Exit 234S, towards Manassas/Dumfries/Pr Wm Pkwy.  Merge onto Prince William Parkway.
