The Most Expensive Homes Sold in the New River Valley in 2016

cash moneyPeople 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.

#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.

What’s The Most Expensive House On The Market Right Now?

I get asked all the time, “what’s the most expensive house on the market in the New River Valley right now?”.

As of a couple of months ago, it was a nice Victorian in Christiansburg, on the market for the “bargain” price of $2,000,000. That house has since lost the title, however, when the West Wind Farm came on the market.

West Wind Farm

West Wind Farm

Listed by RE/Max First-Christiansburg, the home includes a vineyard and winery, set on 100 acres, in Max Meadows, VA. From the listing description:

West Wind Farm-Vineyard & Winery is an award-winning Virginia vineyard and winery producing quality certified label wines. After years of establishment, management, and growth, it is now being offered by the owners for sale as a complete, turnkey operation. One visit to the property and you’ll see a dedication to excellence everywhere you look. The owners have worked hard to develop a top-shelf business and it shows in this elite property. Nestled on a fourth-generation homestead in the Southwest Virginia Blue Ridge Mountains, West Wind Farm offers 100 acres of pristine land, vineyards, winery & tasting room, and beautiful custom 3,122 sq. ft. home surrounded by stunning vistas year around. Five acres of quality label certified vinifera varieties produce over 1600 cases of wine annually.

This sale will include all equipment needed to continue management of the winery and farm. Several revenue streams are established that will allow a new owner to generate income from day one.
ADDENDUM: The winery produces approximately 1,600 cases annually. 90-95% of sales occur on-site via the tasting room. West Wind Farm has been voted as one of the top 23 wineries in Virginia out of the 250+ in existence. The gift shop provides a comfortable shopping environment where guests can choose from a large selection of unique items that compliment their wine purchases. Corporate and social events can be held on-site. The outside gazebo surrounded by lush, green hills is the perfect site for an outdoor wedding. The formal dining room inside the winery has been home to catered meals for various corporate entities. The winery also hosts monthly dinners and seasonal concerts for their patrons. Off-site grape sales can also generate additional income for the business. About every other year, the owners sell surplus grapes to other wineries and clients in the state. The property also includes an 1850’s-era farmhouse that has tremendous potential for a bed and breakfast.
