An Amazing Opportunity to Own Rixeyville's Whippoorwill Cottage circa 1949. A charm-filled home with lots of well-kept character of yesteryear. It sits on 10 scenic acres on the corner of Holly Springs Road. Plenty of space for children and their critters to roam till their hearts are content. There is a seasonal creek that runs behind the home beyond the old vintage spring house. The cottage sits between the two large fields where horses would feel right at home. 3-board fencing runs along most of the front parameters. There is a handsome barn in the rear right field that has running water and electricity. An old-fashioned berm-style path connects both fields from the back of the cottage. There is also an oversized one-car garage with additional space to bring additional storage or create a workshop. There is a brand new oil furnace in the garage should you decide to create an alternative means of heating. After purchasing, Sellers decided to utilize a heat pump instead. The land is organic. No chemicals or harsh pesticides have been used on the property since the owners bought it in 1999. Also it provides those hard-to-find views ever so present showing the distant Blue Ridge Mountains and the Majestic Virginia skies that chase them. Carry a blanket at twilight to one of the fields and lay back for a magnificent light show that the moon and stars deliver so brilliantly. You won't miss those streetlights at all. So much character this 3 bedroom/2 bath home bestows. You can feel the love and attention that has been given here from the moment you walk in the door. The current owners made substantial improvements along the way. Sellers are offering a 2k allowance for you to pick your flooring for the upstairs primary bedroom. There is plenty of storage and closet space to utilize. The partially unfinished basement has a full bath but the remainder is awaiting your finishing touches and you could easily add a kitchen on that level as well. Oh, the possibilities! You will love the primitive hardwood flooring throughout most of the home. The dining room showcases a lovely built-in corner china cabinet. The oversized galley kitchen runs the whole length of the home and exits to a deck with additional views. Below it, there is a brick patio that's perfect for you to observe the expert griller. Many places here to entertain. There are two charming bedrooms to the left of the interior separated by a full bath and a multi-use closet. There is also a possibility to build on the 5 acres that are on the corner. Zoning states the possibility of subdividing in two 5 acre parcels. Sellers will not be responsible for rollback taxes. This is a perfect property to just settle in and enjoy the good country life.
