Not much you can do. In our MLS a house can have 10 rooms with windows, closets and beds, but if the approved septic system says 3 bedrooms, that is all we can advertise it at. The rules in your area may be different, but I can't imagine the cost of changing your tank and drain field would be worth it for resale.
If the same rules apply in your area, and were in place when you bought, you may be able to take some action against your seller.

Sorry ... should have put the response here I think.

Read page 40, paragraph 2, in the 2013 Orange County comprehensive plan:
Shotgun Hill Branch meets Wilderness Run about 2500 feet south of the Rapidan river.

I'm so glad you asked about lake properties in or near Orange! One of our most popular lake communities is "Lake of the Woods" in Locust Grove. The main lake covers 500 acres, and there is also a smaller lake (the fishing lake) that covers 35 acres. The Lake of the Woods community is a gated community that has something for everyone. Lake of the Woods is located on Rt. 3 in between Culpeper and Fredericksburg, about a 30 minute drive on Rt. 3 to the actual town of Orange. I've attached a hyperlink for your convenience that will give you more information about Lake of the Woods.

We also have Lake Orange, Lake Anna, and Lake Monticello which is closer to Charlottesville. All of our lakes are beautiful and unique in thier own ways. If you are not already working with a Realtor who is representing you as your "buyer agent", please give me a call for more information, a list of homes that meet your criteria, or to begin your home search.

Thanks again for asking about Orange, I hope to hear from you again soon ~ Garlene
