          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2010

          About the owner: We live in North Carolina, an hour away, and also have a rental property in Cape Coral, FL. We enjoy going to both places.

          Why the Owner Chose Galax:
          We bought this property because it is in a beautiful location right on the New River and is right across from the New River Trail.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          It is perfect for relaxation and the scenery of the river is outstanding. The mountains are beautiful in this area of Virginia and it is like going back in time to a simpler less hectic lifestyle.
