Hi. We have a great home in Blacksburg for you. The house is adjacent to our current house and separated by about 1/2 acre. The home is furnished and is a turn-key rental, that is appropriate for visiting professors, post-docs, sabbaticals, international hires, new hires, and professionals. You can arrive with some suitcases and be ready to live here. It is a dedicated furnished rental home, not our house that we are vacating temporarily. We have had multiple sabbatical families in the house as well as those relocating to Virginia Tech to work professionally. All of them commented on how helpful we made their move. We are directly next door and can help you with the hundreds of different decisions you will have to make when you get to Blacksburg (particularly if you are coming from outside the U.S). We speak English (although we wish we spoke 4 different languages :) The house is comfortable for (up to) 2 adults and 2 children (maybe more if they double up in a room). 2000sq-ft total, split between 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 center, restaurants, banks, bus route, and supermarkets. -Most sought-after schools in the area: Kipps Elementary, Blacksburg Middle School, Blacksburg High School. - Ranch style house, 3 bedrooms upstairs, with family room and kitchen. - Includes most kitchen items that you would need.
