People often ask about the most expensive homes for sale in the New River Valley, and it’s interesting to see what’s sold. In years past, the spread between the homes has been close, but in 2016, the most expensive home was double the fifth most expensive home! Take a look below at the five most expensive residences sold in the NRV in 2016.
#5 – $775,000 339 Airport Road, Blacksburg – listed by Nest Realty, this one-of-a-kind home was prized both for the features inside, but also the nearly 1-acre flat lot in Town, which as you know can be a rarity. With an amazing kitchen and double-sided fireplace, coffered ceilings, and a two-story screened porch, the custom design screamed elegance, and buyers responded – it was only on the market for 26 days. If you want a porch like the one from this house, make sure to get a bed porch swing like the one they had.
#4 – $780,000 1491 Falcon Ridge Rd, Blacksburg – this monster, listed by Porch and Picket Real Estate, had been remodeled top-to-bottom by the owner over the course of a year and a half. Every surface of the home had been touched, and the home boasted one of the largest kitchens we’ve ever seen. This home is now back on the market again, with Coldwell Banker Townside – let us know if you’d like to have a look.
#3 – $875,000 570 Wood Haven Ct, Blacksburg – what do you get the most discriminating buyer? This home, listed by Coldwell Banker Townside, this was one of the most beautiful homes I’ve ever seen. A manicured setting amongst towering trees, this home with view of Ellett Valley was simply spectacular in every way. It was comfortable, yet elegant, which can be a rare combination.
#2 – $885,000 1401 Pebble Beach Rd, Blacksburg – located in the Country Club, this home on the backside of the Country Club backed right to the golf course. A pocket listing by Long & Foster-Blacksburg, the listing agent had a buyer lined up and ready to go, so it was never exposed to the market. We’re certain, though, it was nice. I mean, it was the second most expensive home sold in 2016.
And finally – the most expensive home sold in the New River Valley in 2016!
$1,500,000 1655 Plank Dr, Blacksburg – another pocket listing at the Blacksburg Country Club, this home listed by Coldwell Banker Townside takes the #1 spot for most expensive in 2016. Maxing out at a whopping 7716 square feet, the custom-designed Craftsman surely had all the bells and whistles you’d expect to find in a home of this caliber, and more than 4 acres of land surrounding it. This house sold in February, setting the bar high early in the year, and no one was going to come close to it for the rest of 2016.
So there you have it – the most expensive sales in the NRV in 2016. Any surprises? I’ll tell you what, for me it’s nice to see more and more agents using professional photography – we’ve been preaching it for years, and agents are finally coming around to the idea.
