Lakefront 3 BR, 2.5 bath home with large deck and gameroom.
Jeff and Kim live in Virginia and built this house as a vacation home for their family. Both of us have family spread all over the United States and we wanted a place where our children and other family can come once a year to gather and reconnect. Kim is a 'military brat' who learned early on that 'home is where you hang your hat'. Having moved around from state to state and country to country during her childhood and most of her adult life, Kim wanted a permanent place to 'hang her hat', Roxy Park is that place. Jeff originally hails from Chicago and also moved around due to his father's job. He settled in Virginia over 20 years ago and has never looked back. Jeff fell in love with Smith Mountain Lake the first time he visited and convinced Kim that it was the perfect place to build a vacation home. He was right! Kim is a novice stained glass artist and you will see several pieces of stained glass that she created in our home.
Owner purchased this House in 2011
Why Owner chose Goodview
Jeff wanted a vacation home at Smith Mountain Lake since the first time he visited the lake. Convincing Kim took a bit longer than he expected, but standing on this lot at dusk and watching the sun set across the water convinced them both that this was 'THE' spot. We originally designed the house on a napkin, then on graph paper, and finally had the plans professionally drawn up so that a builder could make our dream a reality. The home has surpassed our expectations and we never tire of that view.
What makes this House unique
Can't say enough about the view! The all glass front of the house allows us to take full advantage of the view from nearly every room in the house. The oversized dock is a family gathering place and allows us to all enjoy whatever it is we love to do best while being together. It's not uncommon to have sunbathing, fishing, book reading, canoeing, and jet skiing all going on from the dock at the same time!

Great place. Clean and fully stocked. Only issue was steep slope to dock.. Dock was wonderful place to spend down time.
This home was spectacular, the views of the sunset from every level of the home were amazing. Our stay was incredible in the quietness of the cove. Kim and Jeff were very responsive and provided all the details we needed to make this an amazing vacation.
Thank you for your kind words. We hope you come back to stay with us again.
Roxy Park Get - a - way
Roxy Park is just what is pictured. Great view of the lake from all three floors. Beautiful home that is modern and up to date. Kitchen is large and if high quality. Flooring is solid wood and very nice. We had one small maintenance issue that was immediately addressed by the owner. Highly recommended. BN
Thank you so much for your very kind words. We are so glad that you enjoyed your vacation. You and your family were perfect guests and we hope that you come back to stay with us for your next vacation.
Absolutely gorgeous property, house is segmented so that there are many islands of privacy but also areas for the entire party to gather. Our only issue is that sometimes we actually had to go outside to use the dock and lake. Great sunsets from roof of boat house or rear deck.
Enjoyed our stay at this beautiful property.
Could not ask for a better home to spend quality time with friends and family. The house is well stocked with everything you need. We would definitely stay there again, hopefully soon.
