The historic bank barn has been carefully restored and offers endless possibilities. It pre-dates the house and survived the burning of dairy barns in the Shenandoah Valley during the Civil War. There are no nails and screws in the barn, only wooden pegs. Sliding doors open in front and rear and there are stairs to the lower level. Weddings and other events have been enjoyed here. There is kitchen sink, counter, cabinets and storage shelves in the finished room on the upper level. The upper level of the barn is 4500+ square feet. The horse stable is accessed from the rear. It includes seven nice stalls, a tack room with sink and a wash area. The aisles are wide in front of the stalls and in the rear and all covered with rubber mats. There are 3 paddocks, outside and automatic water and a run in shed. The 80 'x 150' riding arena has crushed Blue Stone footing and is located near the stables. Enjoy riding the trails in the woods.
Additionally, there is a pond with island, a machine shed and storage shed. There are two wells and a newer septic system.
This charming property would be ideal for a full time residence, weekender or operated as a B&B. There are many attractions close by such as wineries, working farms and fruit orchards, historic towns and villages. Harper's Ferry is a short drive plus there is easy access to major highways to visit other historic sites such as Antietam and Gettysburg or head South to Front Royal, Skyline Drive, Luray Caverns, National Forests and beyond.
House square footage is approximate. The sellers would like the 3 horses to remain on the property if possible since it is the only home they have ever known.
