Built in 1890, this classic country estate is known as "Shaffer Manor."

If you're yearning for the quiet country life, then this is the home for you. It was once an inn, a bed and breakfast, and is now just waiting for new owners to enjoy it.

On paper, this is a 4-bedroom home, but with dozens of rooms serving various purposes, it has infinite possibilities.


The property is located at 390 Hulings Lane in Timberville and is currently listed for $1,950,000 by Veach Realty Group.


As soon as you walk in, it's as if you've stepped back in time. Every room has been thoughtfully modernized while maintaining classic features like gleaming wood floors and elaborate chandeliers. You simply don't see workmanship like this in a contemporary build.

The farmhouse-style kitchen is full of custom cabinetry so everything has its own place. It's a home cook's dream if organization is their primary concern. There's even a butler's pantry, complete with wine storage, for extra prep space.



Just imagine how incredible this dining room would look, all decked out for the holidays!

Upstairs, the bedrooms feature en suite bathrooms, so you could always resurrect the manor as a bed and breakfast again. Could the innkeeper's life be for you?



Shaffer Manor is perched on over five acres of land, so you've got plenty of room to expand. You could easily put in a guest house, a pool, a greenhouse, or even all three. For someone with a bit of vision, this is the ultimate dream home.
