Fantastic year-round views await on this fabulous 2+ acre parcel fronting on a state-maintained, paved road. Enjoy beautiful mountain views of the shenandoa valley! You can live well here without breaking the bank. There are no HOA fees, and if this lot, and your new home to be built on it, were located just a short distance away in Fauquier County, property taxes would be significantly higher. The property is perfectly sloped to accommodate a new home with a walk-out basement, and rear deck to offer southern sun exposure and incredible mountain views. Your building costs will be minimized by several factors: - A VDOT approved driveway entrance with culvert has already been installed. - The lot is served by a community water system, so there is no need to drill a well for your new home (you never know in advance how deep, and thus how much a well will ultimately cost).- A septic cert letter has been obtained from the health department for a conventional gravity flow system. This is the least expensive, least complicated type of septic system to install and own. This cert letter allows for a 3 or 4 bedroom (with conditional permite for a four) house to be built. If you want to build a 5 or 6 bed home, there is likely room for a larger system (ask listing agent for details - your purchase contract could be contingent upon obtaining this) The location is convenient: there are two access points to route 66, at Markham and Linden. At the bottom of the mountain off route 55, there is a farm market that sells local goods and produce, in addition to the post office, gas stations and 24/7 convenience stores. Recreational opportunities abound: there is a winery just down the road, and many more nearby in Hume, Marshall and Markham. The GR Thompson Wildlife Management area is nearby, which offers thousands of acres for hiking, hunting and mountain biking. The legendary Appalachian trail runs right through it. Warren County is famous for the Shenandoah River, and there are multiple public access spots along the river for boating and fishing. Do you commute to the DC area, or work from home, and are looking to build a custom year-round home in a rural setting? Perhaps you are looking to create a mountaintop weekend family retreat, or retire to the mountains, away from suburbia. If so, come take a look, and prepare to be impressed!This property is also offered for sale as a lot and custom home combination, constructed by a quality, reputable local builder. We can accommodate your design and specifications! In sought after community! With fantastic views - close to wineries & activities - great commuter location offering privacy - yet convenience.
