    Description

    Another price drop-INSTANT EQUITY!Welcome to perhaps the most private and largest parcel(7+ view-filled acres) in all of Lake Front Royal, with a price tag you won't believe! This unique gem is filled with custom features cleverly crafted by the original artist owner who is happy to explain his ingenious special touches. The main portion of the home sprawls through the woods like a magnificent treehouse and consists of nearly 1,200 finished square feet with three bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms. An additional greenhouse-like entrance, a ~man-cave/ping pong room~ in the rear of home (19x9), a ~sleeping porch~ just off the covered master deck (that formerly housed a hot tub) and enormous storage areas throughout make it feel spacious and measure much larger. Two detached buildings also add to the living area on the property~an artist's studio with huge view-filled window (15x15) and a workshop (20x18 complete with exhaust system to control dust)with similar mountain/tree filled views from its huge windows. Both have storage under the buildings, south facing windows, well-designed built-ins and gas heat. There's also an attached (12x5) garden shed (with electric and a hose bib area), an attached (24x4) built in storage room (that has a recycling area, wood storage section and dog access to an exterior fenced area) and a detached 16x8 storage shed (half open, half enclosed). Though the septic is rated for a two bedroom home, there are three bedrooms in the main house and the detached buildings provide extra living space.Perfect for a weekend getaway or full time residence, the home has an efficiently arranged kitchen (with gas stove, dishwasher, refrigerator, double sink and pantry under the stairs) and anopen living/dining area (with a $5k easy to clean Jotul stove w/ screen that heats the entire house). Located under 10 minutes from historic Downtown Front Royal with easy access to I-66 and I-81 for commuters, youwon't want to miss this opportunity!UNIQUE FEATURES NOT TO MISS:Custom locally crafted mural and stained glassLarge and remarkable rock formations throughout the propertyA fire pit area built around an enormous rock formation (below the detached buildings)Former trails throughout property could be re-cleared by hiking enthusiasts Zero grass to mow as the vegetation is natural (native plants and wildflowers are a haven for birds and wildlife)A lovely controllable ~pondless waterfall~ feature at the main entrance (with goldfish pond)Long eaves to protect windows from aging prematurelyA secluded cul-de-sac location that provides excess parking for guestsLighted railings to detached buildingsThe man cave/ping pong room in the rear of the property (with storage underneath and a roof updated approximately 2 years ago)BONUS FEATURES:Laundry shoot, recessed lighting, backup gas heater, ~top-down, bottom-up~ honeycomb Nextday Blinds, like-new hardwood floors upstairs, clever storage solutions, hammock hook in the MBR (currently a music room) ~sleeping porch, and Downstairs~ heat lamp and solar lights in bathroom, a compost area, Pella windows, gutter guardsLake Front Royal lake, picnic area and park accessNearby Appalachian Trail accessThe tree at the foot of the driveway marked with red will be removed by Rappahannock Electric Cooperative.PASSIVE SOLAR FEATURES:(in addition to 2 active solar panels that operate LED lights throughout the exterior and interior):South facing windows in the main home and buildings Terra cotta Terrazzo tile flooring throughout the main level (toasty in the winter months)Upstairs is double insulated and main home is insulated by the attached extra living space~s positioningInexpensive electric bills are well under $70 per month using wood as heat source (and sellers will leave 3 cords of wood)Excellent cross ventilation, ceiling fans appropriately positioned, and concrete walls w/ exterior insulation keeps the house cool in summer months and warm in winter months due to the passivesolar design
