Charlottesville house description

Skyline Crest is a private mountain-top retreat high in the Blue Ridge Mountains west of Charlottesville, Virginia.

Part of a 1,400-acre gated compound bordering the Shenandoah National Park, the property offers supreme privacy in one of the most spectacular natural settings in the Eastern Mountains. Deer, bear and turkey wander through the forests and open fields. Hawks soar overhead. An elevation of 3,200 feet ensures cool temperatures and constant breezes throughout the summer.

The views from the striking contemporary house are breathtaking - a 120-mile panorama from the level Piedmont in the east, over the near Blue Ridge and the Shenandoah Valley to the distant Alleghenies, fading far into West Virginia.

(For photos and video, follow the link to our website - see below, just above 'Owner's Profile.') Five decks, including a spacious rooftop deck, open onto the various daytime vistas - and at night provide for thrilling star-gazing under some of the darkest skies in the Mid-Atlantic.

The house itself (2 bedrooms, 2 full baths) features every modern convenience, including a state-of-the art kitchen, satellite TV and wireless internet. A whole-house generator provides backup power and peace of mind year-round.

Although it feels like a world apart, Skyline Crest is only 35 minutes from Charlottesville and Jefferson's University of Virginia, giving you easy access to all the cultural amenities that a cosmopolitan University community can offer. Also nearby is Wintergreen, the renowned four-season resort, featuring two award-winning golf courses and some of the best skiing and snowboarding south of New England.

                              Within walking distance of the Appalachian Trail and its vast network of side trails within the Shenandoah National Park. The area around Charlottesville is host to many distinguished wineries, and there is a first-class micro-brewery right at the foot of the mountain. Local orchards offer peach picking in late summer, apples in the fall. Springtime is for ripe strawberries and raspberries.

                              Year Purchased: 1986

                              About: I'm a Charlottesville/Albemarle County native. Both my parents' families were peach orchardists - my father grew up at the base of this mountain near the little town of Crozet. As boys, he and his brothers would often hike to the top - to take in the panoramic views and exult in the feeling of being on top of the world (a rare enough experience in the depression years of the 1930s). My wife and I built this house in 1986 as our weekend retreat (and completely remodeled it in 2009). We live in Charlottesville, where I'm a farm and estate broker and she is a professor of English at UVa. We have one daughter, who is a student at the College of William & Mary in Williamsburg.
