An 1850s one room school has been artfully repurposed as a delightful country home that is at the head of its class. On a picturesque country road a few miles south of Sperryville, the Old School House has an enviable location near the Shenandoah National Park with easy access to Sperryville and A+ views across one of the loveliest landscapes in Rappahannock County. The Old Jenkins Hollow School has been added to and altered throughout the years and is now a quirky rambling and comfortable country home full of character and creativity. The schoolhouse building is reincarnated as a large living room with soaring ceilings, a fireplace and plenty of windows and glass doors to drink in the spectacular views. A half round window in the gable end allows southern light to splash throughout the room. The kitchen is connected to the living room via a large dining room with a south facing bay window overlooking the front terrace, lovely gardens and the mountains beyond. The kitchen features a long center island, a six-burner gas range, ceramic tiled counters and plenty of storage. On one side, the kitchen opens to a cheerful sunroom and on the other side there is a large screened porch, perfect for al fresco dining. The master suite on the main floor is a spacious room with a cathedral ceiling, gas burning fireplace and lots of natural light. The master bath includes a soaking tub and a steam shower. There is also an office/den currently in use as a media room. It has a skylight, separate access to the rear deck, a bay window with window seat and its own bathroom. On the upper level, there are two more bedrooms, another full bathroom, and an office space. The home features broadband internet. When it is time for recess, you will delight in the outdoor environment created on 10.1 excellent acres. The home is surrounded by ornamental gardens, old stone walls, flowering trees and shrubs. Towering pines and an impressive maple tree shade the outdoor terraces, decks and porches. When school is out, there is a 36 foot x 18 foot pool with screen gazebo for summer fun. The rolling lawns around the house are laced with shade trees and interesting plantings. A small stream fed by springs creates a delightful little lily pond, home to a wonderful chorus of bull frogs. The property includes a detached 2-car garage. The Old School House has easy access to many of the popular attractions in Culpeper, Charlottesville, Madison and Warrenton. Close by is the village of Sperryville that has become the new, thriving heart of Rappahannock County. Before and After, a premier coffee shop; breweries including Pen Druid Brewing and Hopkins AleWorks; Galleries including Haley Fine Art and Thornton River Art; RPK, a wood-fired pizza kitchen along with an excellent Corner Store; Happy Camper, an outdoor gear and lifestyle shop; Stonewall Abbey Wellness and Yoga; and Three Blacksmiths Restaurant are some of the many attractions. Sperryville is also home to the Hair Gallery, multiple restaurants, Copper Fox Distillery, and a 9-hole golf course.
