Property Description

Majestic retreat with panoramic mountain views and shared border with Shenandoah National Park. Nearly 72 acres of mixed woods and fully fenced open fields with electronic gated access to ensure uninterrupted, peaceful enjoyment. Stately custom home with over 6,600 sq. feet of finished living space is sited beautifully on the mountainside. Enjoy breathtaking sunsets from the wrap around front porch and side patio. Dine al fresco from patio or large back BBQ deck. Meandering stone retaining wall supports a kaleidoscope of mixed shrubs, annuals and perennials. Step inside the central foyer with a soaring ceiling, graceful staircase and gleaming hardwood flooring. Here you are flanked by the library/study and formal dining room with elegant moldings and easy kitchen access. Before you is the heart of this home warmed by streaming natural light, a towering stone fireplace, hardwood flooring and a pine ceiling. The open floor plan seamlessly connects great room to kitchen, casual dining area and back deck. Gorgeous cherry cabinets, black Corian countertops and nearly new appliances surround you in the very spacious tiled kitchen with center island cooktop and mountain view from the windows over the corner sink. Conveniently just steps away is a light-filled laundry room with high efficiency front load w/d, ample storage space and extra refrigerator. Continue down the hall to the second staircase accessing the lower level and oversized 2 bay garage. The true gem of this north wing is a lofty and magnificent office/den with a soaring wood ceiling, charming gas stove, and custom poplar wet bar with Subzero refrigerator drawer. The large picture window showcases the glorious mountain view to the west while the back of the room accesses the deck and luscious landscaping. Next to this room is a full bath with custom vanity and exquisite detail. Rounding out the main level, and adjacent to the great room are a guest half bath and owners’ suite featuring a bay window, two walk in closets and light-filled bath with separate shower, soaking tub, double vanity and seated make-up counter. Three additional bedrooms, a full bath and guest workroom/office are located on the upper level. The fully finished and carpeted lower level boasts a large entertainment room with gas fireplace walking out to the glorious side patio. Adjacent to this is another office or hobby room (could be a 5th bedroom). Whether your passion is working out, playing pool or both, additional cool and carpeted space is perfect for a variety of indoor recreational activities. In the area below the brick front porch is ample industrial shelving for all your storage needs. The detached brick four bay garage has a full bathroom and unfinished upper level for storage or future caretaker cottage. The 7.5 HP air compressor conveys as does a 500 gallon double walled diesel tank and powerful outdoor wood stove designed to efficiently supplement home heating systems. The house backs to healthy forest and fronts to ten open acres with 3 fully board fenced paddocks and horse stables. Adjoining 82 acres with significant SNP shared boundary also available (different owner). Recreational opportunities abound near Bentonville. The property is just a short walk to Jenkins Gap Trail that links to the Appalachian Trail at Skyline Drive. Glen Manor Vineyards and Andy Guest State Park are just minutes away, and the restaurants, stores and other amenities of both Front Royal and Luray are also close by. This property is just 66 miles from Dulles International Airport and 80 miles to DC. Schedule a showing today and bring your binoculars!
