Welcome home to your beautiful, rural peaceful setting in Rhoadesville, Virginia, situated on a mostly level lot. Entering the driveway, the focal point of the front yard is the gorgeous water fountain and fish pond, lending anticipation of the beauty of the property overall. New owners will be provided the best of both worlds with easy access to main roads and highways leading to the larger historic cities of Fredericksburg, Charlottesville, Richmond, Northern Virginia and Washington, DC, all of which are within a 30-90 minute drive. The closest VRE is in Fredericksburg which is an approximate 30 minute drive. Located in the heart of Virginia's horse country, enjoy the nearby equestrian centers, shopping, dining and antiquing in the surrounding quaint towns. There are two golf courses within 15 miles, and many wineries in the area, as well as hiking trails of Virginia's Piedmont Mountains, such as our famous "Old Rag Mountain". Fishing areas are available in the many nearby rivers, streams and lakes. The closest golf and ski resort is Wintergreen, which is an approximate 90 minute drive. Boasting five legal bedrooms and 2.5 baths, a large family room, formal dining room, formal living room, an 18 foot cathedral ceiling in the family room, and a spacious upper level overlook with views of the foyer and family room, there is plenty of room for entertainment of family and friends. The house has an abundant display of charm and personality with special touches throughout such as the kitchen drop ceiling, the wood ceiling in the eat-in space, tray ceilings in the living room, dining room (lighted), and the owner's main level suite, whose bathroom includes a jetted tub, separate sinks, separate shower stall, and an enclosed commode closet. The house has a dual zone HVAC system, one which is electric and the other is gas. A 500 gallon buried gas tank provides fuel to the fireplace and the gas HVAC. The wine rack over the current refrigerator may be removed so that a larger refrigerator can be installed if desired. Many pallidum windows provide a light-filled house and the wood floors and stone fireplace lend warmth and cheer. The chandelier in the formal dining room appears to be an antique, although the exact time period is not known. It is not certain, but it is believed that the sitting area in the largest upper level bedroom (now serving as the game room) could be renovated to provide an ensuite bath since it shares a wall with the current hall bath. The Listing Agent spoke with a major flooring company and was told that the laminate flooring in that bedroom appears to be Wilsonart, which is of the highest quality. As we now focus on the backyard, there is a patio with plenty of room for a grill and a large dining area, and a firepit nearby. The detached garage can most likely accommodate four sedans, or two very large vans, SUVs or pickup trucks. It is also home to a workshop with electricity, and just outside the side door is a functioning well water pump. With 4.74 acres, there is plenty of room out back to build a horse barn or other structures as desired. The house currently has five legal bedrooms, but the site perc'd for three bedrooms, allowing the septic system to accommodate six people living in the house full time. In April of 2022, a new septic distribution box was installed, a new blue tooth compatible, energy efficient, 50 gallon electric hot water heater was installed in the attached garage, and a separate HVAC system providing both heat and air conditioning to the garage was also installed. Orange County Planning and Zoning has informed the Listing Agent that the lot can be subdivided with a required minimum of two acres per lot, although prospective Buyers should consult with Orange County to confirm. The current owner is using the attached garage as a staging and packing area as he prepares to move his family to their new home. Please note that all room sizes are approximate.
