Nestled in the Shenandoah Valley, this unique piece of property provides the perfect setting for a retreat. Two log homes reconstructed together, sitting on 358+/- acres, make this massive sylvan dwelling a great spot to host and entertain. The velvet sky is spangled with stars at night, and during the day, the sun slips over the mountains and bathes the property in light. The property is teeming with life, from wild geese, turkey and deer to a plethora of delicious fruit: apples, peaches, plums, berries and more. The estate intimates privacy and seclusion despite its proximity to the nearby cities of both Lexington and Staunton. You get the feeling even from the trip up to the valley through the winding, wooded driveway that you’ve stumbled upon a true vestige of bucolic splendor.
The wood paneling and exposed logs of some rooms give the sense that you’re still out amongst the trees, albeit with all the modern comforts a home could need. The two log cabins function as one comfortable dwelling, with four-five bedrooms, two half bathrooms and two full bathrooms. It also sports a well-equipped kitchen with a small den off to the side.
In addition to this, the property has a charming one-bedroom guest cottage with its own kitchen (open to the living room area), and an absolutely resplendent screened-in porch. This is truly a welcoming piece of real estate, perfect for all of your guests. The sprawling 358+/- acres could be utilized for any number of projects, especially horse or cattle farming. The ample acreage, scenic pond, and natural insulation from neighbors mean your stock could enjoy leisurely grazing and you can have the ultimate in privacy, owning ridgeline to ridgeline. There’s also opportunity for all manner of recreational activities: hunt some deer or turkey from the luxury of your porch, or hike the various trails around the property. If your personal paradise is pastoral, if it involves idyllic living amidst towering mountains and gorgeous blue skies without a neighbor for miles, this might be your dream home.
