OPEN Sat 9/16 2-4PM! Zoned AR1 for a myriad of uses for business, weekend retreat, income potential, or residence. Welcome to Derry's Tavern! The historic property was a way station on the journey west. George Washington originally surveyed the land and records from the Thomas Balch Library substantiate his presence at the original log cabin.
The current owner has lovingly restored the property and where not possible, has updated with timeless elements. The log portion with loft offers electricity and a separate entrance for a studio or office and awaits your creativity. With age unknown yet believed to be from the 1780-1790s, the tax records are incorrect on total square footage. Please check out the floor plan for a more accurate total. Since 2004, the septic field has been replaced, central AC and propane heat added, the kitchen rebuilt & modernized (former kitchen had been gutted) updated wiring & plumbing on the upper 2 levels. The 35,000 gallon in ground pool has been fenced, pool equipment replaced & a propane heater added. The original wide plank upper level tavern bedroom floor is intact along with the original staircase winding around two of the home's 3 fireplaces. In 2022 the roof was replaced, the interior and exterior painted. and both baths were fully updated. In 2023 the microwave, dishwasher, washer and dryer were replaced along with updated lighting in the kitchen and laundry room. Stone walkways lead to both the front and back door. The stone room (sunroom) overlooks the terraced flower gardens where wildlife abounds. The gardens have been developed as a labor of love over time. The vegetable gardens are protected by fencing and irrigation is provided. Edible perennials are established to provide strawberries, blueberries, asparagus, & rhubarb for years to come. It appears this had been a weekend getaway home for the past several owners until the current owner poured her passion for old homes into the property. Her thoughtful simplistic approach to restoration and renovation are revealed throughout. The original staircase we ask you do not use. Surprisingly, there is plenty of storage in this older home! So much more to say with ample room sizes and secret nuggets tucked away throughout! The cat colony may stay or the Loudoun Cat Coalition will assist in relocating. The bank barn is usable for storage, however, caution should be used upon entering the upper section. All wood cut and stacked conveys.
