Woods... 10,000 acres of mountain land, divided into 363 large
residential/recreational parcels of 20 to 215 acres in West
Virginia's Hardy and Hampshire Counties. Yeeow! New
primary and second home construction taking place throughout.
Lots of gorgeous new Log and Timberframe (Post & Beam)
homes, high on the mountain, with spectacular views and
sunsets. So far, mostly just building lots for
sale, but resale homes are just starting to come to market in
this new community. Lots of re-sale land parcels for sale
(hey, there's 363 lots!) and plenty of builders to choose
from. A partial list of West Virginia log home builders
working in Ashton Woods is at the bottom of this page. Current
home values range from modest cabins, to well over one million
dollars. Most homes are not visible from the roads,
being deep into these large properties.
Ashton Woods owner myself and an active participant in the
community. I can probably answer all your
questions about any aspect of Ashton Woods and can email
anything but the property itself. Don't be shy about asking
for plats, maps, deeds, covenants, perc test results,
topographic maps, or whatever you may need to help you learn
about any of these properties. I'm happy to email whatever
you need, to you, if you're working with me.... or to your
Realtor, if you're working through another
Realtor to make your purchase.
I've located, or created, a topographic map for each
property shown here that provides the very best information
about any property, if you know how to read them. When
buying large acreage in the mountains the topo map is your
very best friend. Learn how to read them here: TOPO MAP READING.
Note: Ashton Woods has installed electronic
security gates at all three entrances. You must have a Realtor
with you to enter Ashton Woods to see property. Please
don't expect us to provide our security code to
you. I'm available to show property to qualified
buyers almost any day, by advance appointment.

Ashton Woods Property in General:
About a 4-8 minute drive (from Ashton Woods' 3 gated exits) to
public access points on the South Branch of the Potomac River
for canoeing, hiking and fishing. New 4-lane portions of
Rt. 55 (Corridor H) cut drive times considerably for those
coming from the DC area. All Ashton Woods lots are perked
(making septic systems legal), surveyed and accessed by good
gravel roads, maintained for year-round use. Phone and electric
lines are already in front of most lots... coming soon to the
rest. Electric lines to every lot were already paid for by the
original buyers. ALL 363 lots have access to DSL Internet lines
along the road provided by Hardy Telecom. Those phone lines also
access the phones at the gates for visitors to call you and
allowing you to open the gate from your home phone.
Restrictive covenants that protect your property from mobile
homes, commercial use, or from lots being subdivided any smaller
than 20 acres etc., are summarized below. Full 10 page copy of
the Ashton Woods Restrictive Covenants is available to potential
buyers. I can email them to you once I know which lot(s) you're
Nearby Moorefield (5-8 miles from entrances) has a 24-hour
WalMart, several good restaurants, a six screen movie theater

Moorefield has an emergency care center right behind the
McDonalds (just by coincidence).
ALL these Ashton Woods properties are
privately owned by different owners and are listed by Realtor
Charlie Winfree. You are welcome to use my services directly, or
the services of any other Realtor as a Buyer's Agent to help you
make your purchase, but when using another agent, you MUST use
their services to request additional information and to show
these properties to you. That's how they earn their fees. I will
email whatever they request, plus the proper access code through
the gates. Ashton Woods is a Gated Community. You must have your
Realtor with you to gain entry... codes found being used by
non-owners have been canceled. I'm always ready, willing and
able to show these properties to my Buyers. I know the owners,
the land, the roads, the rules, the upcoming plans and I even
know of some lots not on the market that may be negotiable.
I build these web pages for my Buyers! They're to save us both
time and help you make the very best decisions with the best and
most current information. When I work directly with Buyers (as I
do 90% of the time), I provide you with the same level of
loyalty, service and confidentiality that I do for my Sellers. I
do this by providing Dual Agency services, which, when done
correctly, simply levels the playing field, giving equal
representation to both Buyer and Seller. Nothing more, nothing
less. Learn more about how that works HERE
When working directly with me on these properties, I will
provide you with maps, plats, topographic plats, aerial photos,
covenants, Association details, septic (perc) papers, comparable
property information, current deeds, and much more, before you
make your purchase, PLUS a huge wall map of Ashton Woods at
closing, if you like.
I am an owner in Ashton Woods and know it well.
Working directly with me gives you the edge on selecting
your purchase carefully. I know every lot, every trail,
every road, every bargain property, every view property,
every type of property. I know where to put the driveway,
the well, septic and the best place to build. I know the
contractors who can provide you with a driveway, or a
beautiful log home, or whatever style you want. I know the
property corners and where the neighbors are most likely to
build on the adjacent lots. I have the maps and plats of
everything. I can quickly determine the lots you really need
to see after we look at one or two and I get your feedback
on those. We will waste no time together.
If you are serious about seeing/buying these properties,
good shoes or boots and long pants are essential. Leave the
sandals and shorts at home, or in the car. Be certain
to dress for the weather and for the woods! You will NOT see
these large properties effectively from the seat of a car.
If you do not plan to make a purchase in the next few
months, you should enjoy the website and wait until you're
about ready to buy. The list of available lots changes
weekly. Today's best deals won't be there in 3 months. When
you do come out to look, be sure to bring your spouse, or
co-purchaser. They need to see and hear everything you do
and I need to hear their thoughts.
Bring your dogs along... they're OK in my car! The dogs love
walking in the woods with us. Make sure you have a leash as
there are bears, turkey and squirrels that are usually too
much for most dogs to resist.

Lot 148: 20.15 ac Sold
20.15 acres of mountain land in Ashton Woods, featuring mixed
hardwoods (mostly Sugar Maple) and Pine, at an elevation of
1400-1500'. About half the acreage is gently sloped,
meaning potentially available for a building site and driveway,
taking you far from the roads. This lot has an old logging road
running along the main ridge line through the pines that could
be the basis for a driveway or just a great trail for walking
through the forest. It takes about ten minutes to walk from one
road to the other through the lot, mostly on this old road, and
it's a pleasant walk the whole way. This lot has good access
from TWO roads and potential building sites are accessed from
either road. Phone & electric lines border the lot on

Lot 77 has a bit of everything.
Several acres in the front are small pines and brushy fields

the property, there are several acres of hardwood forest
bordering a year-round creek. A wooded hill rises 100'

property is relatively level fields with small pines and a few
hardwood trees popping up here and there. The fields slope very
gently down to the crystal-clear creek. Take a look at the TOPO MAP
Elevation is about 1100'. A home could be built about anywhere
on this property. The best spot would be at the top of the
gentle rise, just behind the pine patch from the road, biggest
windows facing South for the sunlight, or East toward the creek.
