LOCATION LOCATION - A Handyman's Special - cozy, well-insulated, two-story, stone foundation, wood-framed farm house was built in 1890's, renovated in 1980's & modernized for technically in the 2000's. Come see through Sellers stuff to discover this hidden GEM. Reshape your own piece of heaven on Earth with gently rolling topography graced with blackberries and shade from a row of apple trees, scattered and perimeter mature walnut, sassafras, Kentucky coffee, Norway maple, mulberry, pine and cedar trees, to name a few. This property is kept chemical free by the seller, who has been maintaining a small flock of organic, pasture roaming chickens for many years. The top soil is rich & fertile, the grass and garden soil is pesticide-free. A large bonfire pit & privacy earth-berm are located on the western point of the property along with spectacular sunsets, a wooded, rocky ridgeline area & a small creek. Many critters also share the tree lines, open lawns and meadows including deer, rabbits, squirrels, chipmunks, skinks, salamanders, frogs, pollinators, songbirds, woodpeckers and more, which is a solid indication of quality, pesticide-free growing conditions, perfect for gardening & grazing small animals. This turn of the last century farm house has thick walls, large boxed, mostly wood-framed, double-hung windows, which delivers efficient and consistent heating/cooling and low maintenance. A woodstove is all it takes to keep warm on the coldest of winter nights and it's easy to stay cool on the hottest summer days. The LP Gas furnace HVAC & Rudd A/C is functional, yet requires a new blower motor, or a complete upgrade. Internet Service options include Starlink, cable, cellular & broadband satellite. House conveys with off-air rotating television antenna, & fire/security alarm system. Perimeter security & camera surveillance systems is negotiable. This house is loaded with cabling for home theater, audio/visual, ethernet, cable, TV, internet, security & closed-circuit camera systems. A locally-sourced, eco-friendly pallet privacy & livestock wood fencing system encompasses the entire perimeter, adding even more seclusion and outdoor protection for pets and family members. By application a home occupation permit or special exception for this strategic residential-zoned property has potential personal and commercial uses to include possible home-based or small contractors business. A county letter of pre-approval permits a second small cottage/guest house for family member, in-laws, private studio or home office space. This property cannot be subdivided. Dual driveway entrances allow separate access points to pull around the front driveway circle centered with a large dogwood tree by the main house from John Marshall Highway, or access the back entrance to a separate 3-bay, metal-clad, pole-barn shop building (36x24 deep) off Bunker Hill Road. Further, this driveway is a full pass through across the property. . The shop has weight bearing storage lofts, an automatic rollup door with 10 ft clearance, concrete slab, and a chimney for ventilation of wood stove or other fumes. Off-street parking is more than ample with at least 9 spaces noted on a previous appraisal, with more added by parking on the property. The filtered well-water is pure, fluoride-free. Recent upgrades included a new well pump, electric hot water heater and pressure tank, but dates are unconfirmed, so it's safer to say they were installed 7-12 years ago. Roof shingles were replaced in 2003 with 25-year rated asphalt shingles. An above-ground 500-gallon LP tank is owned & conveys with property. Numerous nearby attractions include the N. Fauquier Sports Park only a short distance, if you make it past the Mexican restaurant, feed shop and the Livestock exchange at Zulla Road.
