Welcome to Appalachian Overlook -- with stunning views and the serenity of five private wooded acres, it feels like your own mountain retreat worlds away, but is only about an hour from Washington, DC. Featuring a two-year-old home with modern touches, the property offers many lifestyle options, whether as a primary home or a second-home getaway. From the charming front porch, you enter into an open-concept main level. The living room, with a wood-burning fireplace, opens on to the dining area and kitchen, which features granite counters and stainless-steel appliances. The dining area opens onto a back deck that overlooks a huge fenced-in backyard and forest views. Three bedrooms and two bathrooms finish off the main level (the primary bedroom has an en suite bath). The lower level is a completely unfinished daylight walk-out basement, with a footprint that matches the main level. You can leave it "as isâ€� for games, work-out equipment, hobbies, and more, or create another 1,200 square feet of finished living space, customized to your needs. This property really has it all, with a great location and rich history. The Appalachian Trail crosses the mountain, and there are two entrances to the trail nearby. The home is only 20 minutes from the Shenandoah National Park & Skyline Drive and about 20 minutes from Front Royal. Linden Vineyards is at the base of the mountain, as well as the Apple House, a very popular local restaurant. The surrounding area also has other wineries, hiking trails, and small towns that make for amazing afternoon drives and day trips. You can choose seclusion, but with great Wifi in place, you always have the option of staying connected.
