Earlier this month, we highlighted the five least expensive homes sold in Blacksburg, Christiansburg and Radford in the fourth quarter of 2011. Not surprisingly, they were fixers, and most needed a lot of work. But there were five others that sold during the same time frame that were quite the opposite. While the prices of the most expensive homes sold weren’t quite as high as in quarters passed, these are still five very nice homes.
- 3475 Evergreen Trail, Blacksburg – there’s a builder in our area, Tom Triplett, who builds homes that are all similar in their design. Typically one level (with a basement), they feature things like wood trim, wood vaulted ceilings, and open spaces. I describe them (and probably inaccurately so) as California ranches, and they’re usually very nice. This home, with 4 bedrooms and 3 baths, on almost three acres, was a Triplett home. It was listed for $449000, and sold for $425000.
- 1225 Brockton Street, Blacksburg – the usual adage is “a lot of square footage for the money”, but in this case it could be switched to “a lot of money for the square footage”. With a total of 2850 square feet, this new construction was built in Blacksburg’s Cedar Orchard neighborhood. It has a basement that’s listed as having 1350 unfinished square feet so it could be a much larger house, however. Listed for $479950, it sold for $481500 (I assume with some upgrades).
- 535 Wood Haven Court, Blacksburg – located in the Deercroft neighborhood, this home (like so many in that neighborhood) had nice views of Ellett Valley. A two-story brick home, the 5 bedrooms and 3.5 baths, spread out over 4100 square feet and 1.24 acres. Listed for $525000, it sold in just 81 days, for $485000.
- 2611 Woodland Hills Drive, Blacksburg – and speaking of views … I never took the opportunity to go see this home, for some reason, but always meant to. With unobstructed views of Ellett Valley from many different angles, it looked to be absolutely stunning. And the setting – an older contemporary home on 5+ acres, looked very cool. Listed for $549000, it sold for $498000.
- 2231 Peakland Way, Christiansburg – while 1225 Brockton Street checked in at 2850 square feet, and 535 Wood Haven at 4100 square feet, 2231 Peakland Way blew them all away with a massive 5237 square feet. Built in 2009, this 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath home in Christiansburg’s Heritage Place neighborhood included upgrades everywhere, including a 2400 square foot lower level and – somewhat rare for our area – a geothermal HVAC system. Listed for $595500, it sold for $560000.
