Evermore Farm! Circa 1870's with modern amenities. Spectacular property emcompasses 31 plus acres in the Shenandoah Valley. The large home, built in a traditional European style by one of the founding families of the county, has walls 12 to 16 inches thick constructed of concrete filled with stones from the river. There are three stone fireplaces and a wood burning stove. Exquisite woodwork throughout home is comprised of American chestnut, heart pine, walnut, and knotty pine. The eat-in kitchen has been upgraded with high end SS appliances, granite countertops, and a chef inspired center island. The master suite has walk in closet with views of the blue ridge and river which can be enjoyed from the balcony patio or separate sitting room. The formal living room, formal dining room, and library all have hardwood floors. The family room has custom slate floors with grand bay windows providing views of the Shenandoah River. All rooms, including the bedrooms, are quite substantial in size. On the side of the home facing the Massanutten mountains is a 10 by 54 ft covered and screened in porch. The outbuildings include a 3 car garage with an attached run-in for horses, a heated self-filling water trough, and a paddock for riding. The original summer kitchen with its massive restored limestone fireplace has been converted into an office and guest quarters with a large loft bedroom and full bath. An enormous Valley Bank barn, converted into a profitable destination wedding venue and vacation rental, is a showstopper. The three level barn houses a family room, full kitchen with fireplace and eating area, 3 bedrooms, and 2 baths. The recreation room has a 30-foot high stone fireplace, basketball court, pool table, ping pong table, an antique piano, and a performance stage. There is a 66 ft porch overlooking the Shenandoah River with a hot tub. The lower level houses canoes, kayaks, and inner tubes for guests to use on the private deck and pier. Open acres, formerly pasture for horses, are now cut for hay as a source of income. In total, there are 8 Bedrooms and 6.5 Baths. Great opportunity for an adventurous soul. Possibilities are endless...a vineyard, brewery, cidery, or the addition of rental units on the buildable waterfront sites. Homes can also be built on the acres of pastures. The destination wedding venue and vacation rental has bookings into late 2019 with requests for 2020. There is tremendous potential for income. Nearby tourist attractions include Shenandoah National Park, countless numbers of hiking trails to include a large portion of the Appalachian Trail, Famous Luray Caverns, numerous other caverns, Civil War battlefield sites, Massanutten Resort, many antique dealers, several golf courses, and businesses geared towards family oriented vacations and for those seeking adventure.
