199 Mill Lane, Charles Town, WV
Come home to comfort and serenity in this newly improved creekside estate on just under six lush acres 199 Mill Lane, Charles Town, WV.
The former Cottonwood Inn has been given new life as a private residence that is as perfect for entertaining as it is a perfectly quiet refuge. North Bullskin Run swiftly flows through the property to the nearby Shenandoah River.
A gazebo and the fire pit on at the creek’s edge promise three seasons of magical evenings with cool drinks or toasted marshmallows, and the large covered porch beckons rocking chairs and breezes. Mature trees welcome guests, and a sturdy charming bridge over the creek ensures guests’ passage to the home.
Inside the home, a spacious foyer in the 1820’s section of the house directs visitors to the generous living room and library combination with a brick fireplace or to the equally expansive dining room with giant brick fireplace and sitting area that lends itself to a home wine bar. The kitchen rivals any farmhouse chic, Joanna Gaines design with new floors, new cabinets, reclaimed wood shelving and hardware, a walk-in pantry, an area set aside for a coffee bar, and appliances to delight a gourmet chef. The kitchen flows to a rear foyer that leads to the large mudroom/laundry, an exercise room, and an oversized three car garage.
With seven bedrooms and eight-and-one-half bathrooms, this home could easily be converted back to a bed and breakfast. One of the en-suite bedrooms is located on the main floor with a private entrance and has many possibilities. Above grade square footage is estimated at over 5,400 square feet plus basement.
There are original hardwood floors with a beautiful patina throughout the home as well as new micro window blinds, tasteful, high end light fixtures and ceiling fans, walls painted in rich yet neutral hues, and system upgrades such as ductless HVAC units, new windows in the 1820’s section, bathroom improvements, and a water filtration/softener system.
