Quiet - Great Eat In Kitchen-Woods, bike path
Address: 1849 B Merrimac Road near Prices Fork Road.
Great Neighborhood! The Stroubles Mill portion of the huge Hethwood subdivision is across the street. Click into the listing for contact information, pictures and details!
Trees, fields, stars, and wildlife are at your back door with no human residences for about a mile behind the building, which makes for great wildlife watching from your porch! It is such a peaceful, quiet setting.
Availability: August, 2018. Please let us know your needs, as occasionally due to life changes --- new job, marriage, early graduation, people decide to request to move out early. Please ask if any of our units have similar unexpected openings. Click into the listing for contact information, pictures and details.
This apartment is in a wonderful location. We have lots of
pictures and the floor plans posted on our website.
Real Oak floors! Large eat-in kitchen with lots of
counterspace. Stove, dishwasher, exhaust fan, microwave and refrigerator (It is large!). Two walk-in closets (one is very large, the other is huge) with flexible shelves and rods. Plus
there is a coat closet/pantry in the kitchen. Could be
used for a desk, play area, or nursery, they are so
big! All hardwood floors or nice vinyl. Living Room,
kitchen, large master bedroom + second bedroom.
Hardwired Ethernet/TV/Telephone to all rooms, including
Comcast broadband cable runs to a router; so not
charged for each connection separately!
Our 2.5 acre property has lots of parking for you, your
neighbors and everyone's visitors! There is a small
house. The four unit apartment building has two units
per floor on the upper two floors with a laundry room
and landlordâ€™s storage on the bottom floor. 1849 B has
views from all rooms looking West with trees to the
back, one small house next door, and lawns and view
over Stroubles Mill neighborhood to the front.
All the walls in the building were opened during
renovation so all plumbing and electrical is in very
good to excellent (brand-new) condition. All
renovations have been done with permits and government
inspectors. We worked hard to make all our units as if
our own children will be living in them.
The sound proofing is amazing, between units and within
the unit as well. Close your bedroom door and you do
not even hear the TV in your own apartment! It is very
rare to hear a neighbor or even your roommate. The
views are of trees, lawns and mountains. Rarely will
you hear a car door slam. More likely you will be
awakened by the wildlife in the acres of woods.
Inside the unit there are ceiling fans in every room (plus two in the kitchen - it is that big!) and zone heating; so the electric bills can be kept incredibly low with little effort. There are many
pluses to this building and you likely will find it
worth taking a look. Please call or e-
mail for an appointment. We only own 9 rental units and
manage them ourselves. You will not be a "number" to
us. Our residents frequently renew because they like
how well we maintain our units and how quickly we
respond when they contact us.
We try hard to make our residences nice enough that our
residents renew, and most do. Some stay with us for all
the years they are renting in Blacksburg!
We love animals, but in our rental units they must be
in cages or aquaria and be quiet so they do not disturb
others or damage the apartment. No outdoor pets as we encourage wildlife and our residents enjoy watching the deer, rabbits, songbirds, etc. from their windows and covered porches.
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...
This is a non-smoking building. Also, there is no
smoking on the balconies or near the building where the
smoke can enter through open windows. Since we own the
building, we are able to offer smoke free air when you
relax on the large balconies watching the deer and
birds or enjoying the night sky. The building is
located at the edge of Hethwood and behind it is
nothing but hills and farms. It gets spectacularly dark
when the motion-sensor security lights are not tripped
on. The stars and the moon seem to be much closer here
than in the rest of Blacksburg because they appear so
The bike path to VT and the rest of Blacksburg is right
across the street. Radford and Christiansburg (as well
as Blacksburg) are very easy to access from this
location. The hospital is just down the road.
Please do check Forests Edge website for a map. The
small apartment building is easy to find by taking
Prices Fork Road and turning onto Merrimac Road. Enjoy
the expansive view over the beautiful Wall Farm, rather
than dealing with traffic, stop signs and lights as
your friends do when they go home. It is only one and a
third miles to the three story white building. You can
pull right into the large, usually mostly empty parking
area. It is actually quicker to get here than to most
places that seem "closer" to campus. (Try it!) Plus it
is soooooo nice and peacefully quiet. It's pretty quick
(15-20 min) by bicycle (bike path) to most of VT and
The large homes on Tall Oaks Drive are right across the
street (the back of Hethwood). Blacksburg Transit bus
stop is a few blocks up Tall Oaks Drive. PLEASE ASK
WHETHER WE HAVE ANYTHING ELSE AVAILABLE. ALL OF OUR
UNITS ARE VERY QUIET & HAVE LOTS OF PARKING!
1849 B can have up to two residents due to the zoning
regulations. Only a maximum of 12 people may reside on
the 2.5 acres. 2 in each of the four apartments in 1849 and 4 in the house (1855 Merrimac Road) across the driveway.
The laundry room with nice front-
loading washer and dryer. No need for coins though and
you can safely leave your detergent on the shelf. There
is a reasonable monthly charge, if you would like to
use the on-site laundry.
Please make an appointment and come by for a tour! We look forward to meeting you soon.
