From the Zillow listing:


This super cute bungalow is a little bit of a diamond in the rough – low maintenance and ready to move into. Approximately one mile from downtown Galax, 11 miles from Independence, VA it is a perfect starter home or “get away to the mountains” weekend refuge. The 10′ ceilings make it feel larger than its 1,200 sq. ft. The original hardwood floors have been refinished and glow with warmth, kitchen and laundry/mud room have vinyl laminate. It has new paint throughout, new butcher block counter tops, new stove and refrigerator, and an outdoor fireplace. We’ve installed a brand new energy efficient ductless dual zone heat pump that heats and cools upstairs and down. It has a single car garage that is large enough for a workshop and tools. There is a stone patio at the back entrance that extends to the garage – perfect for enjoying the outdoors and entertaining.The basement is clean and dry with outside access. City water and sewer

This adorable house is warm and welcoming, the neighborhood is quiet and convenient to downtown Galax, music, and art. Galax is a wonderful small town near the Blue Ridge Parkway, Galax Fiddlers Convention, hiking, the New River and more. This low maintenance home could easily be a full-time residence or a weekend retreat.
