Stone Cabin and Yurt for Sale in Floyd VA!
You have the opportunity to purchase this truly unique property at Online Auction! Property features a Stone Cabin, Yurt and +/- 37 acres of pristine land in Floyd County VA!
This property is designed for those who love the Outdoors: for relaxing in its serenity, for investigating and learning about the natural world, for its physical opportunities in working on the land or in working out.
The land is +/- 37 acres of rhododendron forest adjacent and directly accessible to (150 yds) the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway, only 5 miles from the town of Floyd VA. The wooded portion is around an open grassy field (2-3 acres) level enough for various recreational use. At the south end of the field is a large garden area enclosed by an 8’ chain link fence. Within this fenced area is a solar power installation feeding into the grid as well as a small garden shed. Across the field is a majestic forested escarpment that catches the rising sun.
Water on the property is abundant with a clear water stream fed by several on site spring systems. A well provides a high-volume flow to the structures and for watering. On the perimeter of the land below the escarpment there is a constructed trail, precisely one mile in length, for walking or for a challenging mountain biking trek. The fauna is diverse and profuse and a trail camera has recorded many deer, wild turkey, bear, bobcat, coyote, fox, raccoon, rabbit, etc.
The structures on the property are adjacent to the field with easy access from Woods Gap Road and ample parking. There are two separate living quarters, each with one queen bed, open sitting area and full bath. The Stone Cabin (of heavy fitted gray limestone over insulated cinder block) has a very efficient fireplace quite adequate for the coldest of winter days. But it has also a radiant hot-water subfloor system if necessary. Cooling in the summer is adequate by fan and open windows. A small kitchenette is within with sink, cabinets, a mini fridge and counter for microwave, small oven etc. At the rear of the cabin is an outdoor entry storage/utility room within which is a full size refrigerator/freezer and a standing gun safe.
The other living quarters is a recently constructed Yurt. This sits on an elevated Trex deck with a unique reinforced steel under structure, therefore maintenance free. A larger portion of the deck faces the field for relaxing, grilling, etc. Inside the yurt is a railing enclosed loft for children’s use. It's access is by spiral stairs also with safety railing. The Yurt has a kitchen with stove/oven and mini fridge. It also has a stacked washer-dryer.
Between the stone cabin and the Yurt, there is an outdoor kitchen. This is also constructed of matching limestone and hardwood beaming. It is a high use living space with an outdoor TV, and a sitting terrace next to an outdoor firepit. It has a two burner gas cooktop, large stainless steel sink and mini fridge.
Separate from the living spaces, there are two sheds. The smaller older structure has an open drive thru portion with roofed side area. This shed is currently used primarily for firewood storage. Another larger (60’x40’) and newly constructed shed has three compartments. In the rear is a closed (rolling overhead doors) drive thru for storage of motorized equipment and there is a single car garage facing the parking area. There is also a large 30’ x 20’ workshop/storage area. This space is connected for electrical and plumbing installment.
There is a small family cemetery in the SW corner of the property. There is a 50' right of way from Woods Gap Road along the southern border for adjoining property access.
