Although there are some homes without basements, we've learned by living here full time that what anyone really needs while living in this area is a strong, soundly built, newer home that meets all current codes. Our home is perfect because it requires no work!! It's a newer build on a level lot that provides all of the living space that you need on the upper level and a finished basement for use when you have visitors. We live seconds from the slopes and our community is a gated one with fulltime security guards. Lots of hiking and fishing as well as BEAUTY. You can reach me at (304)866-8631 if you're interested. Just so you know, we're selling because we have to move to Northern VA for my husband's job.
