Lovers of history, searchers of babbling streams and front porch swings, and those longing for the memories of simpler times – find your way to 12807 Harpers Ferry Rd in Purcellville, VA. The setting is special! Piney Run meanders through your property, passing stone walls and bamboo forests. Dotted with flowering cherries and Japanese maples, this professionally landscaped property has surprises around every corner. You will notice the remains of an old summer kitchen, with logs from the extinct American chestnut, and in the front yard is an antique carbide pit generator – used back in the day to provide lighting for early American homes. You have a paddock for the animals, an open pad site perfect for a storge building or future barn, and an adorable picket fenced yard. It’s uncommon to have Hardiplank siding on a home of this era, but that is a fantastic upgrade. With 1” thick rigid foam insulation, geothermal heat, spray foam attic insulation and brand new windows, you will not be worrying about the common drafts and poor energy efficiency found in many older homes. And notice the freshly painted standing seam metal roof! Step inside and see beautifully refinished heart pine floors, new paint, new carpet, remodeled and updated baths, and a large kitchen with SS appliances and new lighting. The main level office with built in study spaces is something you won’t find in most older homes. In the dining room, notice the built-in china cabinet and the custom light fixture made from a hand-hewn beam found on the property. Built in 1870, this 3 bedroom, 2 bath darling farmhouse features 1834 finished square feet on 1.5 acres. Over the last 13 years the previous owners have lovingly cared for, majorly updated, and transformed this classic one-of-a-kind property into the jewel that it is today. It may be where your next chapter starts!
