Description

Rare find on Lake Laura in choice central location. 3 bedroom, 3 bath home in mint condition with view and access to Bryce Resort's Lake Laura, east side of the lake. Easy access from herringbone design hard-scape driveway to side entry of the salt-box styled house. A porch with cool breezes offers shade and access to the upper deck. Side entry to the Great Room with wall of glass to beautiful treetop views. The open Great Room includes a living room with fireplace, dining room and kitchen and walk-out to the deck.. The main level has two bedrooms and one full bath. Up the stairs to a Loft with views west, of trees and Lake Laura. The Master bedroom suite overlooks the front and side of house. A finished family room at the lower level offers a beautiful space with windows on views, access to the garden via a deck, a full bath, and a pristine utility room. Upgrades to the house include: a rare Lake Laura garage with overhead and lower-level storage room, including ventilation system. The garage has epoxy flooring and built-in storage. The garage is supported by 4 great steel beams and the structure is flanked on the side by perennial plantings. The original gravel driveway was replaced with hardscape pavers in a herringbone design with a border and built-up walls and planters on three sides of the house. All drainage draws water to the planters and away from the house. Exterior lighting includes lighting along walls, in the garden, including the stone retaining wall, and by all exterior entry doors (5 coach-style fixtures). The property has been landscaped on all four sides of the house with lilacs, daffodils, peonies, periwinkle, iris, liriope, dogwoods, redbud, ginkos, Japanese maples and arbor vitae all fully-established. Stairs were built down to the Water District easement below the house which constitutes a level path. Beyond the easement is another set of stairs leading to the Lake Laura path around the lake and to the Bryce Beach. Neighbors use the paths to the beach and beyond to the community store, and more. Other exterior work includes all new exterior doors on the house and garage, a wood shed for weekly refuse pick-up; a termite bait system. Interior work includes an alarm system, additional insulation in the roof, 2 Mitsubishi Splits for the Loft and Master Bedroom. In addition to the Lenox HVAC, this house has a whole house fan. Additional energy efficiency is in the tinting of all western facing windows and the custom cellular shades in all windows, including black-outs in all the bedrooms. Ceiling fans, a whole house fan and lake breezes make this a lovely house to enjoy. Other upgrades include all new appliances in the kitchen, a new quartz counter and new vinyl flooring + new toilets, cabinetry, vanities and lighting in the bathrooms. The beautiful, open family room occupies 3/4s of the lower level of the house and can be configured any number of ways. It too enjoys treetop views and access to the outdoors. The utility room has an upgraded electric system to 400amps. Basye-Bryce Resort is 1:30 to 2:00 hours from the DC metropolitan area and in the Allegheny Mountains of Shenandoah County. It has been a getaway from big city congestion since the 1900s. The community has underground utilities with high speed internet connections the norm. The Resort offers snow skiing and snowboarding in winter with great classes for all ages. Tubing, whether summer or winter is enjoyed by many. Golf, tennis, mountain biking, zip line and swimming and fishing in 46 acre lake Laura are among the summer activities, along with hiking in nearby National Forests and concerts four miles away at Orkney Springs. Lake Laura has recently been brought up to 500-year flood standards and a new Lodge was completed in January 2019. Private pilots can land at VG-18 SkyBryce Airport (daytime operations only) for breakfast at the Lodge a short walk away. The Airport Library is, we think, the only one in the lower 48.

Bryce

Bryce Resort is located about two hours west of the DC metropolitan area, next to the George Washington National Forest in Shenandoah County. It rests in a small valley within the greater Shenandoah Valley, the “Valley of the Daughter of the Stars,” nestled against the West Virginia border in the Appalachian Mountain range. The elevation of the area varies from 1,263 feet to 1,760 feet. The area around Bryce Resort is typically ten degrees cooler and ten percent less humid than the DC area, with lilting breezes almost every day.

Bryce Resort has been offering outdoor activities to visitors since 1905. Traditionally speaking, it is a place where people sought respite from heat, humidity and busy professional lives. This is a trend that has continued well into the 21st century.

Quality of Life:

Today’s activities include golf, skiing, tennis, swimming, boating, fishing, hiking, hunting, flying, and more recently, zip-line, bungee jumping, rock climbing and mini golf. Bryce is renowned for its sports clinics for people of all ages. Indoor activities include fine and casual dining, music, cards, and the meetings of various clubs and charitable organizations. The core area of Bryce Resort includes a lodge, a sports complex, a ski building, and a members lounge and locker room.

Fifty-two miles of private roads surround homes on the slopes, many of them with mountain views. There are two lakes, the largest of which, Lake Laura, has a beach area with lounge chairs, a concession stand, pedal boats, pontoons, and kayaks available for use. The water is soft and children grow up with fond memories of diving off pontoons or canoeing during the long, lazy days of summer. Fishing is allowed and permits are available at the community store. Boating is permitted, but no gasoline engines. Hunting is possible in the George Washington National Forest in season with a permit. Flying is done from the Sky Bryce Airport (VG-18) and it is an easy walk from the ramp to the Lodge and all activities. There is also an all-volunteer public library with Wi-Fi at the airport.

The Sky Bryce Homeowners Association provides road maintenance and snow removal, refuse pickup, and a roving security patrol. Homeowners enjoy underground utilities, public water and sewer service, high-speed Internet, and cable TV. In general, there are fewer outages in Bryce than in the DC metro area because of the underground utilities and the excellence of the utilities providers.

Homeowners in Bryce typically do not have lawns, since most of them have lawns at their principal residences, so the woods are deep and cool, and there is ample separation between homes for privacy. The area attracts people from all professions – some come just to relax and stay fit, others enjoy telecommuting from their Bryce home.

Whether you seek the peace of a natural setting in the Shenandoah or a lively day of sports and activities, Bryce Resort has something to offer all of your family and friends.
