All new in 2024: Beautiful exterior painting, deck and patio power washing, landscaping including shrubs, plants and flowers, side yard path and barn door. Also new: vinyl plank flooring in the main bedroom and painting in the dining area. Furnishings included in the sale. Shangri-la awaits you! A rare offering on a deepwater section of the Shenandoah River provides limitless opportunities for powerboating, jet-skiing, canoeing, kayaking, paddleboarding, swimming, fishing - or just floating! This rustic 3-bedroom, 1 full bath cottage is right on the River, and at 15+ feet above regular water levels, is higher than most riverfront homes in the community. Enjoy the River from many vistas: inside the house through the wall of windows, the huge patio and deck looking over the River, or your private floating dock right in the River. The perfect getaway to clear your mind, recharge your batteries, soak in nature, and enjoy friends. The community's own private boat ramp is conveniently located 0.5 miles away. Owner's Experience: It is hard to put to words the shared joys and restorative energy that our Riverhouse has provided us over the past 20 years. Our children were 4 and 6 when we acquired the house, and while a “2nd home” on paper, our experiences and memories there are just as vivid and adored. Frequently when we would arrive to the house, we had barely put the car in park before the kids were bounding out their doors, racing straight to the back and jumping in the River. Most days were spent in the River, with a popular means of entry plunging off the dock. The early days sported games tossing the kids into the water, and while the launching diminished as all of us aged, the memories and smiles remain. We enjoyed boats of varying shapes, sizes, and speeds, swapping them for noodles or tubes for “float therapy”. After long days in the River, the nights were frequently spent directly above it, on the spacious patio and deck, with firepits, marshmallow roasts, and s'mores for everyone to enjoy. The 5-minute drive to the Shenandoah River Estates community over “the cattle-road” (Mary's Shady Lane) provides the perfect transition from hustle & bustle to the state of bliss and relaxation that the River offers. Feel the stress melt-away as you enjoy mountain views on all 4 sides, and your mindset shifts from civilization to wilderness, and focusing on what's important to you - including you. And while Summer is “peak-season,” the home provides year-round respite. As the colors change throughout the year, the views continue to impress and to calm. Amazing colors in the Fall, even longer views with fewer leaves (and occasionally snow!) in the Winter, and verdant recovery in the Spring are not to be missed. We have no doubt of the benefits and joys that accompany time spent at 505 Avalon Drive. Truly, it's the entire package: the air is cleaner, the food tastes better and you wake up more refreshed! We wish you and your loved ones a variety of priceless experiences like the indelible ones that we fondly recall. Dive right in!
