Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: We are a couple with diverse backgrounds but similar interests. Spoma grew up in Los Angeles and Lewis grew up in South Carolina. Spoma is a first generation American and Lewis' family has been here since the start. We came together in NC, one as a professor (Spoma), the other as a lawyer (Lewis), both working to advance justice and ethics in the community. Lewis is now retired, but working hard nonetheless! We stay at the cabin often, but when we're not there, we might be in another city to visit friends (Denver, LA, Las Vegas, Savannah) or in another country to meet new friends (recently, S. Korea, England, France, Italy). We have 4 grown children, 1 shy dog, and 4 teen chickens who provide us enough eggs to eat all year long.

Why the Owner Chose Fancy Gap, VA, USA:
This cabin and where it's situated is as beautiful as it gets! We found this "little piece of heaven" within easy driving distance from our primary home and knew it was perfect. In all the years we've owned it, we say every time we walk in the door, "WE LOVE THIS PLACE!"

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The front porch delivers on the promise of offering a relaxed space to unwind from the M-F schedule. The wood throughout the house smells so good. The kitchen is open, allowing the smells of dinner or an apple pie in the oven to permeate. Lewis has found a new hobby in collecting wood pieces and crafting them into creatures, birds, and candle holders--all sprinkled around the house.
