What I love about the home

This home sits tucked quietly along a creek, a hidden jewel. It's the perfect spot near the 'Burgs, Radford, and the entire NRV - yet be close to the river without the high cost of flood insurance. The small community is just that - a true community, with friendly neighbors. It grows on you quickly, becoming a home instead of just another house.
