Situated on the historic site of the still present Warren Mill, the post-and-beam constructed Carriage House is the Virginia home-base of your dreams. Feel the cares and worries of your everyday life melt away as walk up to the second-story deck entrance, stepping inside the charming cottage to discover 1,200 square feet of well-appointed living space.
From the spacious living area with its cozy couches and glowing fireplace beckoning you to sit back and relax, to the lovely kitchen, fully equipped with everything you need to prepare your delicious home-cooked meals, you'll feel right at home.
While the interior offers an abundance of space to sit back and relax, the exterior provides a natural arena for you to unwind in the fresh air. The expansive deck overlooks the peaceful pasture and the creek on the 12-acre property, which is all of yours to enjoy during your stay! You'll love spending time here listening to the babbling waterfall, watching for the families of deer wandering through the pasture or stargazing into the late hours of the night.
In the courtyard, you'll find plenty of wood for a fire and seating around the fire pit, as well as a 6-person hot tub accented by a mini-orchard of dwarf peach trees in wine barrels. Although there is no barn, you could also bring your own horses to keep in the fenced pasture, taking them out for a ride, or simply using your own feet to walk along the paths behind the property.
Waking up to sip a freshly brewed cup of coffee on the deck overlooking the rolling pastures, you'll look forward to every peaceful morning in this stunning Scottsville paradise. Spend your days relishing in the beautiful outdoors, canoeing down the James River or walking to the wide waterfall behind the property to dip into the refreshing waters.
For dinner, fire up the gas grill for an old-fashioned cookout, wining and dining on the elevated deck under a canopy of trees as the gorgeous sun sets over the waterfall. End your evenings gathered in the privacy screened hot tub, enjoying each other's company as the bright stars sparkle above and the train whistles nearby. When you head back inside, there will be a set of plush robes and towels waiting for you!
Although you could surely spend your entire vacation unwinding on the deck or lounging in the spectacular yard, you'll still want to check out the surrounding attractions. With so much to do and see right out the front door, no matter what adventures you come across while in Scottsville, you're sure to make lasting memories while staying at this cottage!
Not only does the property exceed an outdoor lover's expectations with Ballenger Creek, the private waterfall and swimming hole, and the walking trails, but this cottage is also a 5-minute walk from the James River, making it the ideal location for enjoying numerous recreational water activities.
