The River Garden is truly a rare find. A beautiful home nestled in the foothills of the mountains, overlooking a pristine river just outside the award winning, small town of historic Abingdon Virginia. Upon entering the 2 story ranch style home, it seems to have brought the outdoors in with its large windows and sliding doors that emphasize the views in every direction. The natural theme is upheld with its Australian Cypress hardwoods and natural stone floors, cathedral ceiling with wood beams, and natural rock, wood burning fireplace.
