One of Blacksburg's best kept secrets: A sprawling 1260 sq foot PLUS A LARGE COVERED PATIO PLUS A LARGE INDOOR COMMON AREA JUST OUTSIDE YOUR FRONT DOOR. This immaculately clean condo has acres and acres of sheep meadow as a backyard yet it is closer to VT's campus than 1,000's of other rental units AND this residence is very quiet with lots of parking.
VERY CLEAN, RECENT RENOVATION, SPACIOUS, SMOKE-FREE, PET-ALLERGEN FREE, Brand New window treatments on All windows.
3 bedroom condominium with 2 FULL bathrooms (one has a privacy door between the bath/shower/toilet and its two sinks). Bedrooms are well-spaced for privacy with two BR and one Bath at one side and the Master BR and one Bath at the other. It is like a sprawling ranch house without the yard work!
Recently installed a new electric panel in a new location making it possible to fully utilize the walk-in pantry area! This closet is in addition to all the storage in the cabinets, on the long countertops, and over the cabinets (up to the nine foot ceiling)! These cabinets are so sturdy they can hold all your shower and wedding gifts. Since this is a 3 Bedroom unit, often there are 3 separate Moms sending pots, pans, dishes, etc to outfit a kitchen. These cabinets can hold it all and still have more room.
Also, there is a curved shower curtain rod that rotates to save space in the room when you are not in the shower as well as gives you lots of space when you are showering. We look for things that make our places unique, and you get the benefit. This is so new, it was a recent Kickstarter Project!

AVAILABILITY: The majority of our residents renew year after year and move only when they no longer need a rental residence in the Blacksburg area. This unit is available for immediate move-in.
WELL-MAINTAINED & VERY EASY TO KEEP CLEAN: Ceramic floors everywhere, except bedrooms, which are carpeted. Kitchen now has same flooring as shown in Living Room images. We urge residents to tell us when something needs attention because we want to maintain things so they do not break. Paint on walls is very durable and scrubbable. We regularly ask residents to alert us to anything loose, dripping, or just does not seem quite right; so things can be fixed before they break.
MAINTENANCE: We try very hard to answer, promptly, residents' calls for assistance - day, night, weekends and even on holidays.
SPACIOUS: 1260+ square feet of well-planned space. NO space wasted on stairwells. In all our units, All hallways serve dual purpose of being access to the large rooms and for access to the numerous closets and cabinets. Over NINE foot high ceilings; so you can use the space on top of regular height bookcases for more items. Plenty of space for over-sized items above very durable kitchen cabinets.(I know I mentioned this, but one rarely has too much storage in a kitchen.) Large pantry area. Washer and dryer are in lit closets with still more shelving.
PLUS: Dry, covered Patio walks out onto lawn effectively enlarging your living space. Safe to barbecue under roof!
PLUS: Common area Foyer for the building provides even more indoor space.
BRIGHT: Lots of natural lighting during the day during the winter and tree shading patio during summer. Many built-in light fixtures for lots of light, even in closets.
ENERGY-SAVING FEATURES: Has Heat Pump but rarely do tenants ever turn on AC. Naturally cool in summer. Ground floor unit; so the Earth keeps it warm in winter. 52 inch reversible ceiling fans with lights in all rooms which cool in summer and bring warm air down from 9 foot ceilings in winter. All windows and Patio door are double pane. Patio door swings and has a deadbolt; so it seals much better than a typical sliding patio door. Owner has lived in the unit so can share additional tips for conserving.
VERY QUIET Location. Occasionally the sheep in the meadow outside your windows might wake you, perhaps once a year. Otherwise, most people move to Brightwood Manor to live quietly. When apartment/condo/townhouse/house hunting please come by any night and likely you will hear very little except some "neighborhood" type sounds, not loud parties. Please do come by on Thursday through Sunday evenings and you would find it hard to find a loud party. If you hear much noise, please do let us know! Brightwood Manor is known for its tranquility, and we want to keep it that way so people like you can have a quiet place to call home.
There are nice, relaxing VIEWS out windows and off patio.
UTILITIES: Water/sewer/trash pick-up included. CAT-5 computer, TV and telephone cabling to virtually all rooms. Comcast and Verizon DSL are available.
MORE INFO: Two full baths; one has two sinks with a door providing privacy for tub and toilet. Refrigerator (Energy Star-used only a few months), range, dishwasher, garbage disposal, microwave (so new -still in the box!), full-sized washer & dryer (with energy-saving booster fan). Great closets and many of them sore to the high ceilings.
Deposit is one month's regular rent. Click into the listing for contact information, pictures and details.
SCHOOLS AND PLAYGROUND NEARBY:
Blacksburg Middle School
Blacksburg High School
Much lawn around the buildings
MINIMAL ALLERGENS: Since renovations we have not allowed smoking nor any uncaged pets. Unlike many units at Brightwood Manor, your clothes dryer will vent to the outside of the building through a well-designed ventilation system, complete with booster fan. Also, there are exhaust fans in both bathrooms and over the kitchen stove.
SMOKING POLICY: No smoking in our units or on the patios or balconies.
PET POLICY: No uncaged pets and nothing that is even capable of making noise heard outside the unit even with the windows open. No outdoor pets.
When you live near our units, you will not hear barking or parrots shrieking coming from our units. When you rent our units, there will be no screens bowed out from cats leaning on them. There will also not be residual pet odors wafting around. We personally love critters, but, if they are capable of damaging our units in any way or disturbing the neighbors, we do not permit them in our units. Our units are designed to tolerate --very well --- residency by responsible humans; thus, humans very rarely damage them. We want you to be able to get your full security deposit back when you move out; so we have provided, durable, quality features to our units and they are easy to scrub clean.
Thank you very much for considering renting one of our 9 units. Since we are not a big company just, literally, a "Mom and Pop," for the last 20 years we have tried very hard to personalize our service to all our residents. Apparently, we must do OK because our residents tend to renew year after year until they move out of town, buy a home, or need a type of place we can not offer. For example, 902 #2 was passed amongst upper class-men and graduate students for nine years, and, when one of them came back into town to work years later, she was disappointed to learn it was already leased.
We look forward to the opportunity to show you this great place to live!
