BrockWorks, Inc. has been a proud sponsor of the Smith Mountain Lake Charity Home Tour for nearly three decades, with numerous homes featured throughout the years, including two of the Brock Family's personal residences. This year's tour features the McAvoy home, built by BW in 2018, which benefits the Roanoke Valley Speech and Hearing Center.

The Tour accomplishes this through partnerships with volunteers, charities, businesses and individuals. To date, the Tour has raised nearly $5 million for local charities.

Eight beautiful lakefront homes are opened to the general public for touring on Columbus Day weekend. Uniquely, all Tour homes are accessible by road and by water, with a significant number of residents and visitors traveling from home to home by private or rented boat.

The SMLCHT is the community fund drive to support critical services for those in need in the SML region.

Located in Park Place, the McAvoy home is a 4,200 sq. ft. Tuscan style home with beautiful views of the lake and Smith Mountain. It has 4 bedrooms and 3 ½ half baths, and an open floor plan with hickory hardwood floors. Oriental rugs are seen throughout the home along with antique wood mantles, tray ceilings, and touches of Italy. 

The kitchen features chocolate-stained cherry cabinets, granite countertops and a large island. There is a walk-out screened porch with a fireplace and a balcony. The master bedroom has His-and-Her closets, and the master bath has an oversized shower and a claw foot tub. The lower level houses 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, enclosed theatre room, game room, and a seating area with a bar. Outside, it is an easy walk to the dock, passing a fire pit nestled behind boulders that already existed on the property.
