Manahoac is a hillside hideaway that hugs the gentle contour of an unnamed foothill of the Blue Ridge Mountains at the foot of Shenandoah National Park. The charming board-and-batten and field stone home is tucked away just off of quiet Woodward Road, south of the Village of Sperryville. The 110 acre parcel rises slowly from the Hazel River, at the lower boundary, to a small peak above the home at the upper boundary. The top of iconic Old Rag Mountain is visible from the home and Hazel Mountain and the Hazel River Trail access are just across the road, making this an idyllic location for nature lovers, hikers, and anyone who would just like to “get away from it all.” The home was cleverly sited to take advantage of the topography. The front of the home is on grade and allows for one-level living. Walking in the front door, one enters a hall with a slate tile floor that leads to the sun-filled great room. The great room looks out over the view of unbroken acres of forest and Old Rag Mountain in the distance. A field stone fireplace with an efficient wood burning insert provides ample heat for those cozy winter nights. A roomy dining area begs for big dinner parties. The kitchen has a retro vibe with loads of cabinet space. In the other direction, the light-filled main floor bedroom has an ensuite full bath. The lower level, walk-out English basement also allows plenty of light in. The family room on this level has another field stone fireplace and opens onto an on-grade tiled patio. The home’s second bedroom is just off the family room and also features an ensuite full bath. Completing this lower level is the laundry room, lots of storage space, a root cellar, and a petite “wet bar” cleverly tucked in between. Just uphill of the home is a workshop and guest cottage. The structure has a little deck out front and a natural stone step into the guest quarters. The guest quarters are in need of renovation but there is plumbing for a full bath and a big wood stove to keep the space cozy. Both the main house and the guest quarters were built in 1965, so they are ready for some TLC. Manahoac’s 110.93 acres allow plenty of room for your own private walking trails. The old logging trails are overgrown but could be reclaimed to make for easy walking or UTV paths. A stretch of the Hazel River meanders through the lower corner of the property, just off the driveway. The upper portion of the property has another access point from Woodward Road, making it a possibility for dividing off some acreage and building another home. Rappahannock and surrounding counties offer endless recreational possibilities. Shenandoah National Park and Old Rag Mountain are nearby. The park is home to scenic Skyline Drive with its overlooks as well as many miles of trails. There are wineries and breweries, great restaurants and cafes, antique stores, farms and orchards, and much more. Looking for cultural activities? Visit one of the many art galleries, attend a play or a concert at one of the theaters, or visit the Rappahannock Historical Society’s museum. Near Sperryville and “little” Washington, and convenient to Madison and Culpeper, this property is ideally situated for full-time residents or weekenders alike. Located only two miles off of F. T. Valley Road (Rt. 231), about two hours from Washington, DC, and a little over an hour from Charlottesville, the property is within an easy driving distance for weekend getaways.
