RIVERS EDGE ESTATE EXTRAORDINARY SHENANDOAH RIVERFRONT PROPERTY We are extremely pleased to offer the finest Shenandoah River property we have ever had the privilege of listing in the over 30 year history of our firm. This extraordinary 90 acre property has approximately 1 mile of direct frontage on the Shenandoah river as well as direct access to Route 115 ( old Route 9). It is located 5 miles from Charles Town, less than 25 miles from Leesburg, Va., and 35 miles from Dulles Airport; easy commuting distance to DC and the Maryland/ Virginia "federal" suburbs. The current owners spent 30 years scouring the Shenandoah Valley, from Lexington, Virginia to Harpers Ferry, WV, in search of their dream waterfront property. They assembled this property in 2012 and devoted the next several years into transforming the beautiful but very raw land into the equivalent of their own personal state park. For the person who has longed for a waterfront country escape that is both private and convenient, with woods and open fields, where deer, foxes, wild turkeys and eagles are abundant, this is the proverbial once in a lifetime opportunity. This is a property that has to be seen to be believed. A team of highly skilled, local craftsman spent countless thousands of hours improving the property, including: Clearing thousands of down or damaged trees, Removing and burying utility lines, Building an attractive, secure entrance, Installing a several thousand road system to allow full access to all of the most spectacular parts of the property, Creating a fully permitted boat ramp,Opening extensive paths along the river for nature walks.The privacy and integrity of the property are protected with approved zoning for two residences. (Family members can build an additional home). The ideal building sites have been cleared and prepped and the road system provides access to both sites. There is no equivalent to this property any where in the region. The opportunities for hunting, fishing, hiking and communing with nature are endless. The views of the Shenandoah are spectacular and the opportunity to watch eagles, hawks, herons and geese on the river never grow old. The current owners frequently go kayaking on the river by entering at a public ramp a few miles to the south and paddling down river to their private ramp. For history lovers, this estate has been witness to many of the great moments in American history, George Washington was a frequent visitor to the area and crossed the river near the property's edge many times. (He was so taken with the region that he persuaded his brothers to settle in the area. Charles Town is named for his brother who donated the land for the village. And nearly 80 members of the Washington family are buried in a local cemetery). Old Route 9 was the original path to the "west" and it is on this road that native Americans, British soldiers, explorers and other colonial figures passed as they opened the country. During the Civil War, both the Union and the Confederate armies passed by the property many times on their way to the 24 battles that were fought in Jefferson county. By every measure, this is a special property, a property of dreams. The lucky person or family that purchases this land will have the opportunity to create a rich, inspiring family history of their own.
