Houses For Sale

Public Open House: 1324 Winchester Pike, Front Royal – Sunday, October 11 from 1pm – 3pm

Published

on

Absolutely gorgeous, updated, upgraded, remodeled home! Still true to original charm, this home is a must-see! Located right off the double bridges, you are conveniently located close to everything including I-66 for easy commuting. The history of this property could possibly date back to the 1800s in portions of the home.

  • 6 Bedrooms
  • 4.5 Bath
  • .89 Acres
  • 4,647 Fin Sq Feet
  • Full details available here.

A bit of history:
The land the home is built on was part of what was once a 3,600-acre land grant to William Russell by the governor and Council of Virginia in 1735. In 1826, 220 acres of that land was inherited by Samuel M. Spengler, and he completed construction of the first home on the street,1315 Old Winchester Pike Riverside in 1850.  In 1854, the house passed to Major James R. Richards, who supposedly won it in a hand of poker. The house now sits on two and one-half acres of land. The property remains in the family. During the Civil War, the family witnessed troop movements and battles. Riverside provided a hospital, hide-out, and meals for soldiers.  Ashby Parker O’Malley, owner.  (Information found in a brochure from Garden Club of Warren County 2015)

It is thought the homes around 1315 Old Winchester Pike, including the property for sale at 1324 were homes that have been built throughout the years for other family members of the main home discussed in this paragraph of history.

Top recent improvements that have made 1324 Winchester Pike a modern-day showplace: 

  • KITCHEN – The gourmet kitchen has a bright and modern vibe but the refinished original cabinets keep the charm of years past. Lighting fixtures could be right from an episode of HGTV!  Granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, double wall oven, electric cooktop, with butlers pantry including an additional sink.
  • BATHROOMS – All bathrooms have been remodeled including ceramic tile and granite. There is a full bathroom on the main level in the library.  It can be used by the main level bedroom (once was the parlor and can be converted back).  Half bath on the main level has a fun green sink with laundry room convenience.
  • BEDROOM – Total bedroom count of 6.  One bedroom on the main level.  Five bedrooms on the upper level.  One of the rooms had recently been made into a kitchenette and sitting room.  It can easily be used as a bedroom. There is one bedroom that does have a full bath attached, could be considered the master bedroom.
  • UTILITIES – a 50-75K value of heating and cooling updates including a ductless HVAC system to keep cool on the upper level.  New oil boiler for hot water backup when temps drop below 32 degrees.
  • GARAGES – New 3-car garage detached.  One car garage attached.
  • OUTDOOR FEATURES – Heated pool.  Stamped cement patio.  Colorful flower beds and hardscaping. Almost 1 level acre. Mountain views. Close to the river for fun and adventure!

Top Things Seller Loves About This House:

  • Located in the best neighborhood in town, Woodland Park, which is quiet, safe, family-friendly, and great for walking.
  • Close to the schools and the school bus stops right at the corner of Accomac and Jamestown.
  • The mountain views from the Living Room is gorgeous. The sun streams through the kitchen window in the mornings and through the Living Room in the evenings, and the views of the sunsets are spectacular.
  • One level of living is really convenient!
  • The brick exterior walls are zero maintenance, provide great sound insulation, and the thermal mass keeps the house cooler in summer and warmer in winter.
  • The eat-in kitchen is large enough for a small table and chairs for casual dining, and I like that it’s enclosed from the Living Room to hide any mess when guests are over.
  • This house is great for entertaining! The large formal dining room is perfect for dinner parties, Thanksgiving dinner, and other holiday celebrations.
  • And on warm summer days, the screen porch is a cool place to relax with friends and look out over the neighborhood.
  • The two wood-burning fireplaces add a touch of class and romance to the house and are a great source of back-up heat.
  • Tons of storage space throughout the house. Wood floors throughout are beautiful and easy to clean.
  • The basement Family Room is very cozy and perfect for a ping-pong table. I use the unfinished room in the basement as a home gym. It could also be converted to a bedroom, home office, or so many other uses.
  • The large shop and tool room in the basement is a dream for DIY projects and tool storage.
  • Great to have a garage to keep my car safe from the elements, plus storage for the lawnmower and other equipment.
  • The basement has the potential to create a separate apartment suite that could be rented out for additional income.

5 Things Seller’s Daughter Loves About This House:

  • I love the huge screen porch.
  • It’s fun to sit out there with a glass of lemonade on a hot summer day.
  • I like how big my room is and there are good views from all the windows.
  • The big tree in the front yard is fun to climb and is a nice shady spot to lay in the grass. The yard is great for a dog. We put ours on a long leash, so he can run around and play.
  • LFK Elementary School is just a short walk away and has a cool playground.
