It is extremely rare for such a unit to be available for long! Click into the listing for contact information, pictures and details!

Step into 900 #3 Brightwood Manor any time of day or night and it will greet you with its bright cheeriness! The attention by these owner/ managers to detail during the recent renovations and with routine maintenance is very apparent. This unit is easy to keep looking really nice. Most of our residents honor us by renewing year after year..

We try hard to provide a good value for our residents' money. You can choose what utilities to pay for and economize. I just called places with much higher rents, which they justify by having many amenities and utilities "included." Check carefully! Will you use those amenities and do they have a cap on for example, on the "included" electricity usage. Some charge you extra in the winter months and do not refund you when you do not use as much in the summer, when you are away and your refrigerator and water heater are turned off or reward you for opening windows and cooling off using fans.

This unit is in a small condominium complex with a neighborhood feel. Ages range from newborns to octogenarians. Serious students, professionals, and families all like this quiet building because it has a reputation of not hearing neighbors easily and of attracting residents who do not have lots of parties...

All of our units have great parking for residents and guests...
The BT Bus stops at the end of the driveway; yet in this unit, no window has a view of asphalt and the patio gate opens out onto a wide lawn. If the weather is dry when you are moving, getting in and out of the patio door is the way to haul stuff!

We strive hard to keep our promises to our residents to provide clean, well-maintained, quiet residences. They should be pet allergen and smoke free. If you have pets, please read through to the discussion at end of this lengthy description. We love critters; yet we have a strict pet policy regarding noise and that the pets need to be confined to the indoors and inside cages or aquaria...

No smoking please!..

Nice ceramic tile flooring was installed in the kitchen, living room, dining area, hallway, foyer, closets, laundry area, and bathroom. (Hopefully you can see the grout lines and the actual pattern in the tile in the photos.) The bedrooms' carpeting is professionally cleaned and stain-protected...

There is a great, very well-lit, galley kitchen with lots of counter space and an amazing amount of very sturdy wood cabinets. There is nothing flimsy here! Since the ceilings are 9 feet high the open soffit area above the cabinets provides even more kitchen storage. Refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, exhaust fan, newish stove and garbage disposal. EZ to take out, rinse off and reuse vinyl shelf lining will make it easy for you to maintain...

Bathroom has bright new ceramic tile from tub to ceiling and around the vanity. The vanity has two sinks. The full-sized porcelain bathtub with shower and toilet are separated from the sinks with a door for privacy. There is a double curved rod for extra space when showering and lots of decorating possibilities. And the wonderful floating shelf over the sinks just makes this room sparkle even more. Also, included are robe hooks at least three towel rods plus towel rings. Lots of mirrors in this unit, including full length ones in each bedroom...

Nice very recent full-sized FRONT loading washer and dryer. Very efficient dryer ducting system to keep your laundry costs way down! The washer spins fast and uses little water (less to heat!) and the dryer has a powerful blower, but you will barely need the dryer as the washer will all but spin dry your clothes!..

Many other brand new items were installed throughout unit. Nice built in oak corner shelving unit was custom-made for the unit...

All new faucets in the bathroom, kitchen and bath/shower. New universal/ADA height, elongated toilet. Substantial grab bar in the bathtub. Door way to the sink area was just enlarged. Doors have new Schlage lever style handles and locks...

Unit is a ground floor unit which requires steps to access via the front door, but access through the back is right onto the lawn. Railing on patio can keep children on patio and then, when gate open, allows level access from the lawn directly into the unit and makes it easy for children to get to the lawn to play. Easy to walk directly to nearby playground...

Trash pick-up is provided, with the dumpsters, conveniently, right next to the 900 building but out of sight of this unit. Sewage and water are also included...

There is CAT-5 computer cabling and TV hook-ups in both bedrooms and the living room. You have a choice of Internet providers. Verizon DSL and Comcast both are available...

Central heating and AC system is only a couple of years old. Double pane, insulated windows. All the double hung windows are vinyl replacement windows that are very easy to clean since they tilt in. The paint is a very good grade of Zinnser paint that is durable and resists staining with reasonable care and of course the ceramic flooring should be very easy to maintain. The Scotch guard stain protectant on the bedroom carpeting should also help minimize cleaning difficulties. We put much thought and money into making it possible for reasonably responsible and careful residents to get their entire security deposit back...

Also, 52" 5-bladed reversible (for summer cooling and winter heat circulating) ceiling fans with lights in both bedrooms and the living room. Track lighting provides many lighting options; so there are plenty of lighting options everywhere! Mirrored closet doors make the spacious living room/dining room seem to go on and on. There is great place to hang a heavy plant in front of the South facing living room window. This unit has great lighting, even all winter as the winter sun comes streaming through the patio door in the afternoon. The patio ceiling however, cuts the western sun all summer so breezes can come through the patio door decreasing the need for costly AC. ..

Amazing amount of storage! Closets are everywhere! Many soar to nine feet high. Large pantry area. Large linen closet. There is adjustable shelving in the laundry area along with a bar to hang shirts fresh out of the dryer. The washer/dryer can be hidden behind doors even with the door to the washer left open to keep from getting musty...

Very quiet complex. Family-oriented. Children's playground nearby. Bike trails to the super market and Virginia Tech. The VT sheep meadows are adjacent to Brightwood Manor..
Kipps Elementary School and Blacksburg Middle and High Schools.

Large Family doctors' office with evening and weekend emergency hours right next door...

Blacksburg Transit bus stops at the end of the driveway...

Plenty of parking for residents and their guests. No need for hang tags, parking stickers or assigned parking spots. There are ample...

Very rural feel almost in the middle of Blacksburg...

Views from unit are of expansive lawns, a children's playground and Oak Manor Townhouses. Sheep meadows and woods are next to Brightwood Manor making it fun and convenient to watch the sheep and the llama. When you relax on your patio it is very likely you will hear the sheep "Baaa". A family walk could take you to the sheep barns to watch the lambs. Woods separate Brightwood Manor from nearby office parks...

This is a terrific unit for serious students as well as families, individuals and couples. Brightwood Manor is a small (only 36 units) complex that is well-known as a place where one does not have wild parties. Expect it to be very unusual to hear much noise, except a couple of weekends in August (before new, noisy residents realize that noise is not tolerated) and then at graduation in May...

Unlike apartments, Condominiums are individually owned and the particular owners and their managers make the decisions about how well they will be maintained. So you will find a lot of variation from one condo to another in the same building and complex. At Brightwood Manor there are people who own the units in which they live, and there are many people who rent units. Who owns and manages each rented condo varies greatly. We own four condos at Brightwood Manor, and we take great pride in how well we maintain each one and that we know all of our residents. In many cases we have memorized their email addresses because we keep in touch to make sure that things are working correctly and to keep them abreast of things that affect them. Since our residents renew so often and we only own a total of nine rental properties, it is possible for us to offer such personal attention to the details that affect each of them...

Our numerous renewing residents obviously believe our units are a good value for their rental dollars. When you reside in one of our units, you would be residing in a unit where the owner/manager pays attention to details and the concerns of the residents and tries to install features that will keep residents' utility bills lower. We really do respond promptly to requests for repairs. We periodically send out e-mails asking if anything needs attention, and then follow-up quickly, if any work is needed.

When a new resident moves into 900 #3, or any of our units, the unit is immaculately clean. Most of our residents renew year after year until they no longer need a rental unit in Blacksburg because we try hard to keep the units as nice as the day people move in...

We work with our residents as they move in and move out in the hopes of making no one have to pay for an empty unit or miss out on a good unit just because they have to move sooner than the date listed in an advertisement. Since real life rarely matches up with the dates on a lease, most of our residents prefer to move at different times. We post our residents' units as available shortly after residents think they will have them empty and cleaned...

No Smoking & no uncaged pets: As with all our units, this unit is maintained pet and smoke allergen free since renovation. This also helps us to keep our units looking as if they were recently renovated. There should be no residual pet odors to surprise you when you close the windows in the winter and turn on the heat. We do allow most quiet caged pets as long as they are well cared for. No uncaged pets and no outdoor pets. To keep our promise to the neighbors: No permitted pet in any of our units can be capable of making noise that could be heard outside the unit even with the windows open, except song birds which, of course, sound similar to birds outside in the trees and feeding at the neighbors' bird feeders. We maintain a list of the types of caged critters that have resided in our units so we can inform people with allergies of when the critters lived there. Over the years we have been offering rental property, residents in our various units have had fish, anuls, a canary and a hamster...

Good luck finding a home that is perfect for you! Hopefully one of ours will be it.
