    Look at the aerial, no immediate neighbors! And a great view! Just needs some goats and a wee bit of work. 🙂

      Goodness, this ticks the decorator/refurbisher/hermit needs. Some angora goats, buff orpington hens, and a garden. Y’all come visit! 🙂

      And my 3 horses, the pugs, the Chihuahua, the Pit, some chickens, three cats, two guinea pigs and one very large Flemish Giant rabbit.

    It’s worth every penny just to be able to bring a lawn chair on the weekends and enjoy your new view. The house is beautiful though and this is the kind of place and property I dream of. Though it no doubt needs some work it doesn’t look like a major project. Well relatively speaking. I know this is the style that a lot of people like to leave in the shabby chic style. Not this one. I’d want to restore until it was as shiny as a new penny. Keeping the design integrity I’d make it as modern as possible.

    This place is absolutely darlin’. Those views and a wonderfully solid simple farmhouse! I’d shine it up in that 1940’s barkcloth drape style that my grandparents had and not miss the neighbors at all!

    Floyd is a great little town, not too far from where I live. It’s a bit higher in elevation, so tends to get more snow than surrounding areas. The town has a strong progressive vibe that’s still kind of down-home country, so it draws a mix of artsy, environmental, hardy-do-it-yourselfers. There’s a local pottery guild (Sixteen Hands) and Roanoke is about 30 minutes (depending on where you are.)

    A real sweet little farmhouse with some great details, but man oh man, the scenic beauty of this place could make me happy with only a tent.

    I can see me raising critters and growing my own food while fixing the whole place up and put in both solar and wind energy sources . Would like to get a few more acres if possible. This is a dream I have had my whole life. Love all the surrounding green. Wonder how bad the winters are in this area. Don’t remember seeing a kitchen which is crucial to any farm house

    …and the corner details on the fireplace mantle…wonder if that was a Martha idea?

    Could have been my grandma’s house. Same style and floorplan. Takes me back some years. She also had multiple lightning rods on her roof. Serenity would be my byline should I have a place such as this.

    I was confused with the fireplace fork detail, and what appears to be asymmetrical white trim on the same mantel…also the mantel that seems to have lost her fireplace and the big stove with the little mantel. No matter… she’s just what I need…I have the end of life rescue dogs, the cats, I’ll need goats and chickens and also a few rockers on the porch. I’ll be having some moon viewing parties out there if y’all want to come. Does the barn belong to this property or the neighbors?
