A treat for spelunkers: Cave – with stalagmites – for sale

For those with dreams of spelunking or for those looking for a property with a true man cave, look no further than 262 Tranquil Shores Road in Front Royal. The property boasts a cabin built in 1940 on 1.3 acres of Shenandoah riverfront land along with another feature that everybody can dig – a cave.

Coldwell Banker realtor Ken Evans has been tasked with the unique listing, which is priced at $69,900.

“(I’ve) never had a cave (listing),” he said. “It’s probably the coolest listing I’ve ever had. The uniqueness is kinda cool. I was so excited about it because it’s different. The cabin is just a bonus to me –  the cave is the real selling feature.”

The cave comes complete with 30-foot high ceilings and stalagmites.

Evans said that while it’s a tight squeeze to get into the cavern, a buyer could easily work to make a less strenuous entryway, and he said he thinks it would great to connect it to the cabin somehow.

Selling the property are Robert and Shirley Nichols. Shirley Nichols said the couple used to use the one bedroom cabin as a place to relax but haven’t used it as such in “quite a while.”

“We’re selling it because we really don’t need it anymore,” Shirley Nichols said. “We don’t go up there much anymore. … It’s a nice place just to kick back if you want. That’s what we used to do, just sit on the porch and kick back.”

She said that the property would be great for a fisherman, hunter, hiker or combination, and they’re selling the cabin fully furnished.

“It’s good for anything. Somebody may just need a kick-back place. Maybe for a weekend place. They can park their camper there temporarily.”
