Property description

Windcliff Acres at Escatawba is located at 3621 Midland Trail Road in Callaghan. The city of Covington is only 6 miles away with shopping: a super Walmart and a Food Lion grocery store. Many recreational opportunities are within a short distance; The Greenbrier and the Homestead are World class golf resorts under 20 miles away. The historic Humpback Bridge is within minutes of the house and there are many other historic sites nearby. Roanoke, Va. and Lewisburg W. VA have airports that service the area, along with Amtrak which comes into Clifton Forge and White Sulphur Springs.

The house was built in 1970 by Marie and John Bradley Jr. of Callaghan, Va. as their retirement home. The house is handicap accessible and dog friendly. The well water at the house has been said to be the freshest tasting water in the county.

The house has 3 bedrooms with ample sleeping arrangements for up to 8 adults in the bedrooms: 2 full size beds, 1 queen size bed and 2 twin beds, all with updated mattresses and linens. There are 2 full baths by the bedrooms and one half bath off the kitchen/laundry area.

The newly updated kitchen has stainless steel appliances and a deep-well sink with attached drain board, disposal and butcher block counter tops. There are three fireplaces in the house, though it is heated with thermostat controlled baseboard and wall heaters to meet individual preferences. We do have newly added central air and heat for the warmer and colder months. There are ceiling fans in all the bedrooms, den and kitchen. There is always a good breeze throughout the house when the windows are opened and there is an attic fan for circulating the air, day or night. The house also has a den and living room. There is comfortable seating throughout the house. The back and front porches have ceiling fans for use in the summer months. The house has a new bronze metal roof and is well insulated. Parking for approximately 6-8 cars is available on the property. There is covered parking for 2 cars.

The house has a land-line with a local phone number but can accept, but not place long distance calls. There is internet access with wifi in the house (information about set up is posted on information board in dining room and there is also a wireless printer for renters connivence. There are also 2 flat screen televisions (one smart) on cable service. Locally, the house is situated within a half a mile of 2 grocery store/gas stations and a bakery is about 3 miles away. The view from the back porch overlooks the quaint community village of Callaghan. Easy on and off access to the interstate 64 and lovely mountain roads that direct you to river and lake fishing. A great place to visit and enjoy with a variety of enriching amenities that the mountains and this historic area provide. Festivals and entertainment abound, but also a great place to just get away from the chaos of everyday city life.
