Nestled down a half mile gravel road you will find a peaceful serene home sitting on 10 acres without another house in sight. Conveniently located only 6.8 miles from downtown Charlottesville this charming 3 BR / 3.5 Bath country retreat comes with all the amenities of modern life. There are four wineries within 6.5 miles of the house as well as historic sites such as Monticello & Ash Lawn which are each about 5 minutes away. The house is bright and airy, features all hardwood flooring throughout, a large kitchen, screened in porch and separate outdoor seating area by a babbling fish/frog pond. Below the house is a fire pit surrounded by 8 Adirondack chairs with plenty of stacked wood at your disposal.
Upstairs there are three bedrooms. The master is very spacious and bright with a queen bed and its own full bathroom and tub. The second bedroom features a queen bed and is very bright and airy surrounded by windows . The third bedroom features two twins and both of these bedrooms share a full bath which features fully tiled and glass enclosed shower. Finally, in the walk out basement there full size pull out sofa bed, gaming/poker table, TV, dart board and complete with its own full bathroom with glass enclosed tiled shower. All bathrooms are supplied with salon grade shampoo, conditioner, hand soap, towels and washcloths.
On the main floor there is a TV/sitting room with large bay windows, a piano and wood burning fireplace. The kitchen is bright and large and well equipped with a large sink, dishwasher, disposal, gas range and an assortment of high quality cookware/knives. For coffee lovers there is Keurig Machine (bring your own k-cups) or a 12 cup Cuisinart percolator. Also provided are a large variety of spices and basic cooking necessities such as sugar, flour, salt, pepper, cooking oils, vinegars, etc. The kitchen has its own breakfast seating area or you can wander out the back door and relax in the screened in porch. The dining room, visible from the kitchen, comfortably seats six, although you could squeeze eight.
Much of the nearby land behind the house is all under conservation easement and you may enjoy taking one of the many walking/horse trails which are quite extensive. There is a full vegetable garden and small orchard on property which I maintain. You can relax in the outdoor seating area by the fish pond to the sounds of babbling water in the background or lounge in comfortable Adirondack chairs under the tall surrounding oak trees while enjoying the fire pit. This is truly a ‘get away’ retreat and you will leave feeling relaxed and recharged!
