Restored farmhouse for rent in historic Newport. First floor includes the kitchen, dining room, living room, and one bedroom (previously used as an office). Upstairs has three bedrooms and a bathroom. There is a spring room and covered back porch, great for bicycle dry storage. Large basement provides more storage (can be used as a root cellar to store veggies and canned goods). There are also numerous outbuildings, including a garage, storage buildings, and barn. Yard around the house is fenced. There is a huge garden space, which you are more than welcome to use for veggies/flowers/etc. Landscaping/mowing of the property is provided and included in monthly rent. Tenants may also hunt or forage on the 20 acres or fish in Sinking Creek, which borders the property.
House has been renovated (new roof, efficient windows, rebuilt porch, hardwood floors refinished 2023, kitchen upgrades). Furnace heat, rent includes enough fuel for this winter and potentially enough for part of next winter (assuming reasonable use). Upstairs bedrooms have air conditioning units. All bedrooms, hall, and living room are hardwood floors. House is not furnished but appliances are provided (refrigerator, washer, dryer). Located on Rt. 42, directly across from the ballpark/tennis courts.
Ideally, tenants will have lived in an older rural house previously and understand the nuances of such living and/or are mature and responsible enough to take care of a 100+ year-old farmhouse and abide by rental regulations.
Because of damage from the pets of previous tenants, this property has some pet restrictions. Up to two cats are welcome. Dog approval is based on temperament. There is a non-refundable deposit of $500 for each pet. No livestock. Chickens are welcome if properly contained.
Proof of steady income and references are required. Security deposit will also be required equal to one months rent. Initial lease will be through May 2025 and a rent discount of $100 will be given to tenants signing through May 2026. This is a really great location as it is only a 10-minute drive to Blacksburg, yet with all the benefits of living in the country.
