Exhale as you arrive at this inviting cottage set amidst a magnificent country landscape that offers respite from the busyness of normal life. Overflowing with charm and character, this magical retreat is nestled off the gorgeous winding roads of Virginia's fabled horse and wine country. Past the open gates, you'll find a welcome home that boasts 3 bedrooms and 2 baths on almost 2 bucolic acres in Hume, VA. Step into the vestibule and allow tension to melt away. Inside you’ll be greeted by a welcoming entry with 3 floor-to-ceiling windows that provide views of the yard, beautiful stone wall, and beyond to the meandering stream and woods. Stroll into the living room, dining room or large kitchen. Through the new Pella windows, lift your gaze to the views of the meadow and the prominent weeping cherry tree or enjoy time by the brand new gas fireplace flanked by stone and a gorgeous barn beam. Enjoy dinner under the Restoration Hardware lighting or entertain a big group around the large kitchen space. A full bath and laundry are also on the main level. Upstairs you will find a generously sized primary bedroom with a large walk-in closet, 3 more floor-to-ceiling windows to enjoy the view of the stream and land, French doors to the evening deck where you can sip coffee in the morning or stare at the stars at night and 2 new Pella windows in the sleeping area with views all the way up the meadow. Two secondary bedrooms with new remote control ceiling fans & ample closet space, a linen closet and a full bath are on this level. The third level is amazing flex space and is the full width of the home with massive amounts of sunlight. Home office, family room, exercise room…so many options! Two storage rooms are also on this level. The home has two decks that offer generous space for relaxing and enjoying your time outside. Walk along the stone wall which extends along the entire property line, stop by the pond, the greenhouse or keep going all the way to the end of the property. Turn around and enjoy the view to the main house and the enormous 2-car garage that includes a workshop, an attached shed and tons of storage overhead (possible apartment?). The property is fenced along the Hume Road lot line and there is also a new fenced-in area attached to the main house to keep pets safe. Three dedicated parking spots are located at the main house on a driveway of pea gravel and outlined by stones from the land. A great weekend retreat just 65 miles from downtown DC. Mere minutes to horse stables, wineries, restaurants and farms. 15 minutes to Shenandoah National Park (Thornton Gap entrance). Or a full time property which is perfectly situated 15 minutes to downtown Front Royal, close to Marshall and Flint Hill.
