On the New River near charming Hinton! The house is spacious and private with a huge front porch offering exceptional river views. The low-traffic New River Parkway runs between the house and private riverfront lot.
There is a large master suite upstairs and four smaller bedrooms downstairs, making it ideal for large/multiple families or groups. The layout is also well-suited for couples who do not need the extra space.
The master suite has a king bed and a futon in the on-suite that folds out to a comfortable twin size bed. Three of the downstairs bedrooms are located together in a hallway off the foyer- the purple room with a twin over full bunk, the blue room with twin over twin bunks, and the pink room with twin bed. The downstairs orange bedroom has a queen bed. All beds have bedding including sheets, comforters, pillows, and extra blankets.
The kitchen has all the necessities- a stove, fridge, microwave, coffee pot and Keurig, crock-pot, toaster, basic cookware and dishes. We keep the basics stocked- coffee, tea, sugar, olive oil, salt/pepper, and condiments in the fridge.
There is a high-capacity washer and dryer in the laundry room.
In addition to the sleeping spaces inside the home, there is ample space for camping by the river or in the yard right beside the house.
There is a basketball goal in the front yard and plenty of space to play, and there are horseshoes on the porch for your use.
The river front lot is very large and private. There is an established fire pit, charcoal grill, and picnic table. Bring your camp chair.
There is no boat ramp into the river but the bank fishing is great and there are multiple public accesses within a couple of miles. Launching in your tube or kayak from the bank (at appropriate river levels) is no problem, but its not suitable for launching a john boat.
There is one large flat screen TV in the living room and a smaller television in the master on-suite, both with Direct TV.
WiFi IS provided, without it cellular service is generally poor on the property except in front of the signal booster in the living room.
Climate control is not a problem with the heat and A/C system. There are also backup gas heaters in case the power goes out in the winter.
The house has undergone major renovations that are nearly complete. Some unfinished projects remain- the laundry room/carport are functional while awaiting completion/remodeling, a historic gazebo moved to the property needs restoration, and some areas of unfinished trim/finishing touches remain. We are keeping the price down as we complete the upgrades. The house was build as our home- not as a rental- and it's uniqueness is part of the charm.
This is a great property for anyone looking to escape to the river. Send me a message if you have any questions. We look forward to hosting you!
