About the 2024 Houses ....

1. Wade and Janet Nystrom

Franklin Pike SE, Floyd VA 

The Nystrom house, constructed in 1910, has witnessed the passage of time and the hands of several different owners, each leaving their mark through various additions and interior changes. Wade and Janet have called it home for 17 years, meticulously restoring it using original materials. Wade's craftsmanship skills extend to crafting much of the furniture and creating artwork adorning the walls. Every nook and cranny of the house is utilized, maintaining its old-world charm. Original features like wood stoves, fireplaces, and the original entry door with Tiffany glass inserts, add to its allure. Additionally, the property boasts a woodworking barn, springhouse, terrace, and a charming picnic area. Each corner of the house tells a story, seamlessly weaving together the threads of history and masterful craftsmanship.


2. Rodger and Sherry Foster

Indian Valley Post Office Road, Willis VA 

"Scionhaven" is more than just a house—it's a sanctuary designed for family life. Built in 2017,

with its expansive, sunlit spaces, this home provides ample room for reading, indoor plants, cooking, and stargazing. The Victorian theme imbues the interior with a timeless elegance, evident in every detail from the vintage telephones to the carefully chosen furniture and accessories. Craftsmanship shines through in the exquisite woodwork that adorns every corner. Antiques like the oak cabinet with curved glass doors holding a collection of butter molds and the functioning hand-cranked wall phone add a touch of nostalgia, inviting guests to

step back in time. Recent additions enrich the estate's charm and hospitality, including a tranquil pond and an outdoor kitchen. This home, equipped with a solar power system, is a treasured retreat where the rich tapestry of family heritage blends with contemporary comforts.



3. Tupper and Virginia Garden 

 Timberline Road, Copper Hill VA 


Nearly two decades ago, Tupper and Virginia purchased a 20-acre plot, kickstarting their dream of leaving city life behind. With a leap of faith, they began constructing their home two years ago, a project led by their son, an architecture student. The resulting 1400 sq ft house boasts a full basement and striking features, including an 18 ft tongue and groove pine ceiling in the great room, offering breathtaking views through clerestory windows. The ceilings and pine paneling throughout the house create an inviting atmosphere, while the kitchen, a long-awaited luxury, exudes simplicity and functionality. The guest bedroom and bath, connected

by a screened porch called a dogtrot, provide a serene escape from the main house. The expansive loft stretches across the entirety of the great room, featuring a specially crafted ladder designed with their grandchildren in mind. Other highlights include the river porch overlooking the Little River and sustainable features like raised garden beds and

beehives. Ongoing enhancements, like the outdoor shower made of the same hemlock siding as the house and driveway, show the Garden’s dedication to improving both form and function.


4. Virginia Highland Haven Airstream Park 

 Highland Haven Road, Copper Hill VA 


Virginia Highland Haven Airstream Park began in 1964 and has expanded to 46 paved full hookup campsites, boasting mountain vistas, meadows, wildlife, forests, hiking trails, and a waterfall. Today, the park continues to thrive as a gathering place for Airstream enthusiasts, providing a perfect place to unwind. House and Garden tour guests have the exclusive opportunity to explore four Airstream homes, graciously opened by their owners. These owners are available to offer insights and answer any inquiries, adding a personal touch to the experience.
