A laundry-utilities room completes the lower level. Except for the ceramic tile in the bathroom, the flooring is easy-care vinyl. An exterior door leads to a level woodland garden with a path around the house and to the garage.Separation from neighboring houses is provided by copses of trees. The tree canopy provides dappled light throughout the day and the extended roof eaves afford good shade in summer. Bryce is known for its playful breezes and restorative energy and 56 Blackberry Hill embodies those qualities. This pristine house is offered fully furnished. 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 and muggy climate 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, Shenandoah House, was finished in 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. Temperatures tend to be 10 degrees and cooler and 20% less humid than at lower elevations. Residents are from all over and from many walks of life and either live here full-time or have a part-time presence.
