This nearly 7.5 acre parcel is a mostly open gentle hillside.  The house is set at the back of the lot to afford privacy and mountain views.   Wider mountain views could be easily achieved with selective clearing of larger trees in the foreground.  There are extensive plantings in the front and back of the house and dogwoods and other trees at the forest edge provide four season interest.  A wide front lawn merges seamlessly with the forest via rhododendrons, azaleas and other landscaping. The headwaters of the Rush River meander through the property at lower elevations and a sturdy trestle bridge on the paved driveway fords the river on the way to the house.   A stone wall provides an inviting entrance.   Harris Hollow Hill is nestled between larger parcels a stone’s throw from the borders of the Shenandoah National Park, thus affording complete privacy surrounded by nature, yet easy access to the outside world.
