*Seller offering $10,000 towards Buyer's closing costs to help buy the rate down* Peaceful and Private Escape in the Great Outdoors! Tucked away amongst the trees is where you'll find 14697 Skinkers Mill Road, just over the Stafford line in Fauquier County. This 4 bedroom, 3 1/2 bath hidden gem rests on a 50-acre lot, with paths leading down to the Rappahannock River/Rock Run Creek. Once part of a large tract of land, this area was settled around 1750 by Thomas Skinker, who operated one (possibly two) gristmills on the Rappahannock, as the waterways served as important sources of food and commerce. Today, it's the perfect spot for metal detecting, hiking, mountain biking, ATVs, kayaking, and canoeing. Or simply relaxing while enjoying the tranquil harmonies of nature . An outdoor lovers paradise, you're surrounded by mature hardwoods everywhere you turn. At the center of it all is a lovely Colonial-style home waiting for its new owners to love it as much as the current owners have over the years. The tastefully-appointed formal living room is the perfect place to entertain guests, and the dining room is a great spot to host intimate dinners for family and friends. The kitchen is located in the back of the home and features a large center island, and looks into the cozy family room, complete with a wood-burning fireplace surrounded by built-in bookcases. Off the family room is the bright and light sunroom which overlooks the expansive, tree-lined backyard, making it an amazing spot to watch the deer as they enjoy the privacy and quiet peace of the surrounding area. The second floor of the home features an owner's suite with immaculate wood floors and a large bathroom with plenty of storage space. Three other bedrooms and an attractive hall bathroom round out the upper level. The lower level is where you'll want to spend your time during the cold, snowy winters. The wood stove will keep you toasty and warm as you snuggle up under a blanket to watch your favorite movie or catch up on some reading. There's also a separate room that can be used as an office, but the sellers say it's the perfect napping room as it's so quiet and dark. There is even a full bathroom with shower to clean up in after a long day of kayaking or four-wheeling through the woods. Back outside, the expansive back deck features a large gazebo for alfresco dining and a separate decking level which would be great as an outdoor living room. The oversized attached two-car garage affords plenty of storage space, as well as a large, detached carport. There's even an adorable outbuilding that can be used as a kid's clubhouse, bunk room, or office space. He shed, she shed, anyone?!?! A Virginia Outdoors Foundation Rappahannock River Easement protects the Riparian Area between the Property and the Rappahannock River. The easement allows you to continue to use the forest and river for hiking, canoeing, camping, and other outdoor recreational activities; otherwise, the property will be kept in its natural state, preserving valuable riparian buffer lands. With so much to offer, 14697 Skinkers Mill is where you'll want to call home. Schedule your showing appointment now...you won't want to miss out on this one! Need pasture space for your animals? Adjoining pasture may be available for lease.
