October 4, 2018

This setting is seriously perfection! Long range mountain views, that beautiful sun, would be very happy here. Black Lick was built in 1911. Great pocket doors! Love that kitchen stove. And that log cabin would make a great guest quarters or Airbnb. Located on 5.30 acres in Rural Retreat, Virginia. Five bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 4,053 square feet. $395,000

From the Zillow listing:


Built in 1911 this is a house rich in history, family and love that is now looking for a new family to call it home. The beautiful 2 story brick home sits on over 5 acres surrounded by lush green farms, breathtaking mountain views and less than 2 miles from I-81. The 5+ acre parcel is almost completely flat offering a wide array of possibilities. As you enter the home you are greeted by a grand staircase with a living room/library to your right and family room to your left, both with converging solid wood pocket doors. The family room has a hand painted mural “Black Lick 1911”. The master is on the main level and is accessible from the family room, hallway or master bath that also has a door to the hallway. The main level also has a formal dining, kitchen, laundry, mud and sun rooms. Upstairs is 4 large bedrooms, full bath, possible 2nd kitchen and sunroom with exterior stairs. The property also has a large workshop, several outbuildings, log cabin and smokehouse. See 3D Tour.
