Nestled cozily in a flora-heavy, 1.61-acre lot, this two-bedroom Bluemont cabin makes the most of its 935-square-foot floorplan and offers an optimal escape for nature lovers. It is currently listed at $399,000.
“If you are looking for a unique home with a mix of nature and convenience, this is the one for you!” listing agent Vicki Broy said in a prepared statement. Indeed, while the property’s immediate surroundings provide forest-swaddled privacy, some of rural western Loudoun’s premier attractions are a mere mile or two away. These include the Appalachian Trail, Bear’s Den Scenic Lookout, Bear Chase Brewing Company and Twin Oaks Tavern Winery, as well as several restaurants and antique shopping spots.
Rustic stone composes a large amount of the home’s exterior, including the walkway leading from the driveway, the front patio, the chimney and a base wall wrapped around the façade. While the exterior’s bucolic quality fills visitors with a serene sense of homeyness upon approach, the interior’s luminous, youthful design is sure to invigorate. Windows on all sides fill the open-concept living area with natural light, which is further reflected off the polished maple hardwoods.
Only a few wooden, T-bracketed columns separate the living and dining area from the kitchen. Guests can warm up around the wood stove — which is surrounded by a wide stone mantelpiece — while the host prepares a snack or meal in the kitchen. Here, white-painted cabinetry blends pleasantly with a generous length of wood countertop, as well as a window over the sink that looks onto the verdant property beyond.
The aforementioned maple hardwoods continue in both bedrooms on the main level. One is situated at the corner of the floor plan and, thus, has extra light through perpendicular windows. Both share the owner’s bathroom, which includes a curtained, standing shower and hardwoods covering the wall as well as the floor. An additional, fenced-in shower can be found outside the house.
Though currently unfinished, Broy said the home’s original cellar is primed to be converted into a wine cellar or added living space. Other outdoor amenities include a fire pit and, right at the edge of the property, a backyard creek, which Broy said is a pleasant spot for morning coffee during the warmer months. She added that the home has a “strong rental history of both full-time tenants and as an Airbnb,” making it an opportune source of income for buyers.
