From the Zillow listing:


I’m not sure where to start on this one, because I’m a country girl at heart and there is so much to love about this farmhouse and its location. This home sits on 6.8 acres of level land on Gooney Manor Loop in the scenic Browntown area of Warren County. Browntown and Gooney Manor Loop are surrounded on 3 sides by Shenandoah National Park. In the backyard there is a view of Hogback Mountain and in the front the view is Dickey Ridge on Shenandoah National Park. This home has 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, Living Room, Dining Room, Kitchen and Laundry Room, two staircases (one in front, and one going from the kitchen to the second floor). And my favorite spot is the giant screened porch just off the kitchen and dining room. Peaceful, serene and mountain views! Also included is the “summer kitchen” building in the rear of the home that you could use for storage, she-shed or man cave. Bring the farm animals as they are welcome here! This property is not in an HOA (there are Covenants) and it is currently in Land Use. Just down the road is the historic village of Browntown with O.J. Rudacille General Store, multiple churches and the Browntown Community Center, Browntown is often called the Mayberry of Warren County because life is slower here, neighbors know each other and wildlife abounds. Also nearby is Award Winning Glen Manor Vineyards, Shenandoah River, Shenandoah River State Park and Shenandoah National Park. Both the towns of Front Royal and Luray offer charming Main St shops and restaurants. Recent renovations on the home include new kitchen, new main level bath, laundry room, new paint, refinished floors on main level, new well and new septic field. Internet available currently is Starlink or Brightspeed DSL while All Points Broadband is coming to the county in spring of 2024. A more detailed history of this home is available in the documents tab.
