    Description

    Serenity Mountain is ideally located in the prestigious Falling Spring Valley of northern Alleghany County Virginia. Situated between Hot Springs, VA to the North & Covington VA to the south. The paved drive to the property directly accesses Rt 220 & is 20 minutes north of Interstate 64; providing an uncomplicated drive to major metropolitan areas. It is located, 1 hour from Lexington VA ,1 ~ hours to Roanoke VA, 2 hours to Charlottesville VA, 2 ~ hours to Bluefield and Charleston WV, 3 hours to Richmond, VA and 4 hours to Washington DC. Encompassing 569 acres, this property occupies the western flank of Warm Springs Mountain & has been carefully managed to enhance the natural beauty and natural resources of the Alleghany Highland environs. The one-mile paved drive brings you to mountain meadow at an elevation of 2,600ft and to the improvements on the property. The views of the valley and mountains in every direction are breathtaking, looking west you have a commanding view of 5 mountain ranges. The property continues to climb in elevation to 3,200ft, the highest point in Alleghany Co, VA. Surrounded by large parcels and sharing a border with the George Washington National Forest, this recreational and hunting property offers privacy and protection from the outside world. Falling Springs Run that forms the northern boundary of this property is the source of water for the spectacular 70 ft Falling Spring Falls that is located across Rt 220 a few steps from the eastern corner of Serenity Mountain. The most extraordinary feature of this Virginia mountain property is that it includes a unique Warm River cave, the second largest warm water cave in the world & the largest of its type in the United States. The main house was built in 1973, and has a fabulous story behind it~s design and construction, & it certainly takes advantage of the commanding views, but as the case of many custom homes, it~s a bit eccentric & suffers from deferred maintenance. To renovate or remove will be the next owner~s decision. There are other options while you make a decision on the main house. The climate controlled, 3 bay, 10 car garage has an attached 2 bedroom 1 bath apartment with full kitchen, laundry, & family room. There is a guest cottage that has 2 separate units each with 2 bedrooms, a bath, kitchen, & family room. The caretakers house is the first residence you reach coming up the paved drive has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, it is the newest structure on the property. All the dependencies were recently upgraded to board and batten siding with metal roofs and new HVAC systems. If hunting and hiking on this lovely Mountain property doesn~t provide enough recreational activity there is an oversized indoor pool, clay tennis court & a hot tub. For the horses there is a 5-stall barn with hay storage and paddocks with run-in sheds and automatic heated waterers in each field. The miles of Jeep trails on the property are also excellent riding trails for horses or mountain biking. The current owner has cattle on the property and built a state of the art working facility. Located in the eastern corner, at the back entrance to the property, just off Rt 220 is an additional three-sided 80x24x18 storage barn, with an attached, 72x32x18 enclosed garage for recreational vehicles. There is a 500 gallon diesel tank with pump at this location for easy refueling of farm & recreational vehicles. This is also the back entrance to the main house from this part of the property. The property is designed to be self-sufficient and operate off the grid should the need arise. The property has been carefully managed to enhance hunting opportunities. It shares a border with the George Washington National Forest & has natural ponds and streams providing excellent natural habitat for white tail deer, bear, grouse and turkey. The current owner has added several food plots designed for habitat improvement, making this a top of the line hunting property
