The house is within easy walking distance of most of the great restaurants, bars and shops that make Fayetteville one of the Coolest Small Towns in America. You are close to the New River Gorge Bridge, national park trailheads, town parks and playgrounds and the 200 ac Gaines Estate which you can enjoy as our guest.

The house is two stories with one bedroom on the ground floor and three bedrooms upstairs.
