The basement sure was a surprise! The built-in aquarium is pretty cool! Love the sauna! And there is a hot tub in the basement! This home was built in 1942. It is located on 1.7 acres in Bristol, Virginia. Home of the soon to be Hard Rock Casino. The house has a family room with vaulted ceiling and hardwood floors. I would want all of the carpet removed. The property looks beautiful with stone walkways, an in-ground pool, and a grape arbor. The basement has a spiral staircase, sauna and a built-in fish aquarium. Three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and 2,845 square feet. $249,000
