    Description

    Available from its stewards of twenty-four years, Guard Hill House offers historic prominence with modern conveniences. The 1821 brick and stone house is perfectly positioned on top of the hillside, surrounded by mature trees and overlooks the the Shenandoah River. Mountain views are prominent from the upper porch from the Northwest, West and Southwest. On the left the entire eastern horizon is filled by the endless peaks of the Blue Ridge, and on the right the Massanutten and the Alleghenies. This classic early 19th century brick house commands on a tall promontory, facing south towards Front Royal with the ground sloping away toward the rear, or north side, so that both the front Main floor and the rear English basement are well-lit by windows and on ground level. The main level offers an elegant sitting room with built-ins, and a formal living room with built-ins and access to the front porch veranda and the spacious rear balcony porch, which wraps around to a second-floor guest wing entrance. Stairs to the upper level are found in the in the living room, leading to the library/game room and the Master Bedroom with Master Bath. The library features built-in book cabinets and an open wooden staircase leading to a fully floored, well-insulated full-length attic. The Master Bath features a large whirlpool jet tub. The Master Bedroom, with built-in closet cabinets, opens to an open sunporch with a portico and extensive mountain views. Antique hardwood floors are throughout the house. Five fireplaces offer warmth and focal points on each of the three levels. Four are wood fireplaces, one is gas-fitted. All feature Antique mantles, two of indigenous Winchester-type. The lower level or the English Basement, houses the well-lit and meticulously updated kitchen, a laundry area and an elegantly remodeled full bath with glassed-in shower. The dining room offers a chance to turn back time and experience the original stone walls, exposed beams, and the candle-burning chandelier, certain to charm your guests. The dining room and kitchen both have doors that enter onto the walkway under the middle floor balcony and provides covered access to the guest house. The main house features a built-in stereo sound-system with controls on each floor. The semi-attached guest wing has three bedrooms and two full bathrooms, and a second kitchen. The basement of the guest house has a fully equipped laundry area with a second washer-dryer set and a freezer that conveys, and an outside entrance porch. The grounds are very well maintained. The lighted brick walkways guide you from the parking area to the stone patio, stone patio, front and back porches, and grass courtyard. A tulip poplar and lovely plantings of hydrangeas, crepe myrtles, lilacs, peonies and other shrubs line the lawns and garden areas. The well and cistern have been repurposed to serve the built-in garden irrigation system. The home features a security system, and whole-house sound system. Behind the house, there is a detached garage with a built-in workbench and a separate climate-controlled storage building, with electricity to both. This area is accessible via a recently re-engineered private driveway, and secured with a newly built retaining wall system, designed in harmony with the historic home features. You will not be disappointed in this fully updated and equipped gracious historic home. Built by Isaac Longacre, the home retains many original features, is well known as the site of several key Civil War actions, and is a popular locale for area special events.
