December 8, 2022

Not going to lie, very tempted by this one! We spend a lot of time at Smith Mountain Lake boating during the spring and the summer! Only ten minutes to Smith Mountain Lake and there are views of Smith Mountain. This home was built in 1937. It is located on 5.28 acres in Pittsville, Virginia. The home features a covered front porch and hardwood floors. Definitely needs some TLC. Looks like it is an estate sale. Three bedrooms, one bathroom and 1,500 square feet. $74,900

From the Zillow listing:


A 1937 COUNTRY HOME sitting on 5.28 acres; with over 500′ of frontage on 40 & over 300 feet of frontage on Toshes Rd. The property provides great views of Smith Mountain, has lots of space for additional buildings, a garden, & goats, chickens, and horses. Wooden floors are original pine boards that would look great if they were refinished; home interior obviously needs upgrading/updating in order to provide for contemporary living. The metal roof appears to be solid, and the oil furnace appears to be ok. Could be a good investment/rental property OR okay for a first-time buyer. This property is located about 10-12 mins from Smith Mtn Lake, about 10 mins from the Town of Gretna where a family could see a doctor or dentist, shop for groceries, eat out, pick up farm supplies, etc.
