Welcome to the original Deyerle family home, circa ~1820. Gently hidden amongst the modern development that is now West Main Street, stepping off the main road transports you two centuries back to a place ripe with history. The original home boasts thick English bonded brick walls, some remaining original windows, and three original masonry fireplaces all with wood stoves in use. The home has been meticulously cared for and upgraded over the years, with thought given to the aesthetic of keeping a period home. The furnishings, d├ęcor, and everything visible in the main house upon viewing will remain unless otherwise noted in documentation.

Thirteen acres of usable farm land and functional outbuildings leaves vast opportunity for operations: dairy, equine, cattle, lumber, and more. A one bed, one bath guest house historically housed the family's innkeeper of the property, but now yields a close-in suite for a family member, guests, or rental income potential. A rental estimate sheet is attached for review.

Walking the land, you will find bricks galore, as they were originally handmade on the property by the first family. A small bridge transports you across the Callahan branch creek bifurcating the property and providing an endless water supply previously used to generate power via the remains of the dam visible nearby.

The current owners constructed a solid hardwood barn on the property, a product of their sawmill operation that will convey to new ownership. All of the lumber for the barn, and all pieces present in the storage shed and silo, were harvested from the land and will also convey to the new owner.

A grandfathering of zoning from Roanoke County allows the agricultural designation to remain, but also includes low intensity commercial development (C-1) zoning, see attached sheet. This allows the continued operation of a functioning farm, including animals and production.

The Deyerle's second home may be seen just down the road towards town: Pleasant Grove, located at 4377 West Main Street, circa 1853. Enjoy your own piece of history today and become only the fifth family to bear name to this beautiful relic of our country's past.
