Great Furnished Home In Family Neighborhood Close to Virginia Tech, Shopping, Outdoors in Blacksburg, VA

Home is adjacent to our current house and separated by about 1/2 acre. We furnished the home two years ago and it is a turn-key professional rental which is appropriate for visiting professors, post-docs, sabbaticals, and international hires. You can arrive with some suitcases and be ready to live here. It is a dedicated furnished rental, not our house that we are vacating temporarily. We have had a Swiss, Brazilian, and US sabbatical family in the house. Besides having many positives, we are directly next door and can help you with the hundreds of different decisions you will have to make when you get here (particularly if you are coming from outside the U.S). We speak english. We have 2 girls under age 13. We have lived in Blacksburg for 30+ years.

The house is comfortable for (up to) 2 adults and 2 children (maybe 3 if they double up in a room). 2000sq-ft on two levels. The house is clean, well-furnished, and comfy.

This is the best located house in the best family community in Blacksburg. 2 miles to campus. 1 mile to shopping.

Depending on the various factors going on with the pandemic and jobs in the area, please contact us with your needs. It is possible that available move-in dates may change.
**Here's a bit tip. Even if you don't rent our house.... You can't show up in Blacksburg, rent a hotel, and try to find a house once you get into the United States. That may work in some places, but not Blacksburg. There are very few dedicated, FURNISHED, professional rentals in Blacksburg and the rental market (even for unfurnished homes) is insanely tight.
Email for questions. I may have more pictures available. We have added things since the pictures were taken.
