Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I am an interior designer and my husband is in real estate and construction. We love to work in our garden and grow our own food. I love to sled in my yard and go tubing down the Little River. We do not like organized travel ...whether in another country or our own we enjoy getting off of the beaten path and exploring. We stay away from 'touristy' spots.

Why the Owner Chose Floyd, VA, USA:
It is easy to get to and close to other attractions...wineries, cultural art centers, biking and hiking spots, wilderness adventures. There are hundreds of acres of undeveloped land surrounding the house.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There's a creek to play in at the bottom of the hill. Organized hikes aren't necessary when the perfect hikes are right out of the front door....4.1 miles to Chateau Morrisette for lunch, wine, or music in the summer.
