Shady Oaks listed on the National register of Historic Places, is a notable example of the refined homes built in North Carolina's Roanoke Valley in the post-Revolutionary period. Its tripartite style is elegant and livable, and the exterior details and stone chimneys are reminiscent of the 18th century houses of Williamsburg, Virginia. Thought to have been constructed for tobacco planter,entrepreneur and civic leader Robert Tines Cheek, Shady Oaks is characterized by the elaborate Adamesque woodwork featured in the music room, the home's main living and entertaining space, and by a rare carved blind arch in the entrance hall. The home has been lovingly restored and expanded by two preservationist owners, David Peebles of Virginia and John and Barbara Kennedy of Warrenton. The Kennedys added a substantial wing that includes a main level master bedroom suite, upper level guest suite, kitchen, sun room and a charming snuggery. The Kennedys also remodeled one of the property's accessory buildings as a guest cottage. The grounds are extensively landscaped and provide a suitable setting for the home and a compliment to the accessory structures. Preservation North Carolina holds protective covenants on the property.  Shady Oaks is suitable for horses with adequate pasture and the opportunity to create trails.  2013 Real Estate Taxes: $2,774.22
