Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: I grew up in Blacksburg and got a B. S. at VA Tech. That stimulated me to get graduate degrees from Oklahoma State and The University of Tennessee. I retired from the University Of Kentucky. After my late wife died, Kaye and I blended our families making for one with 7 children and 17 grand children. We value family and like to provide places for families to celebrate significant life events. As a 10 year old boy , I helped my father build the Harding Place. ( I doubt I helped as much as I thought I did but the house is well built anyway.)

Why the Owner Chose Blacksburg, VA, USA:
Comfortably furnished, secluded but so close to everything, especially to Blacksburg and VA Tech Campus. Short drives can put you on hiking trails. A little longer drive can take you to the country village of Floyd, VA or the Blue Ridge Parkway.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The side porch and yard provide space to relax and watch birds and deer.
