Days Gone By
Days Gone By is a beautifully restored 1890’s era farmhouse situated on the banks of Silas Creek, just minutes from New River. This gorgeous home has much to offer both inside and out.
The lower level includes a parlor with original hardwood floors, living area with propane fireplace, completely rebuilt kitchen with stainless appliances, roll out drawers in cabinetry and lots of touches that retain the character of the old country kitchen yet add functionality to make the kitchen area fully functional for a busy family.
Step up to the raised dining area which includes a beautifully lighted built-in etagere to feature your favorite items or out on the lower level wood deck with its view of the country landscape beyond and outdoor fire chimnea. Or if you prefer the front porch enjoy the porch swing, creek noises and view of the partially fenced front yard area.
The lower level full bath has a tiled shower and includes lots of storage as well.
Follow the original staircase upstairs to find two large bedrooms with original hardwood flooring, pickled wood walls and nicely added closets.
There is also a wide open hallway with top of the line washer and dryer on pedestals. The full bath on this level includes a gorgeous clawfoot tub with shower, two pedestal sinks and lovely white tile floor.
Also on this floor, a third bedroom and a fourth room suitable for a nursery, playroom or office.
There is access from this floor to the open rear deck with steps down to the rear yard area OR the covered front veranda where you can get your Southern Belle on.
OPTIONAL: For the handyman or carpenter, there is a very large wood-working shop on the property that is negotiable and available to the right tenant.
Also on the property a small stream running from the back yard towards the creek in front and an old original structure—canning kitchen. The structural integrity of this building is questionable so caution is required.
And a short ½ mile drive or walk will take you to one of the most beautiful sections of the New River, where rock outcroppings abound and you may enjoy all that the river has to offer… from fishing to canoeing, kayaking and more.
