A little bit of history:

Some history:

The original deed of this property was granted by the King of England and has changed familial ownership only three times since the mid 1700s. At one time the Avon Hill Plantation totaled 1300 acres but today only 105 acres remain.The original house at Avon Hill burned in the early 1800s and the current homes date from the mid 1800s with many improvements. A 1750s home was disassembled from the Williamsburg area of Virginia and reassembled and attached to Avon Hill’s late 1800s structure. After an 11 year ground up restoration Avon Hill is complete and serves as a private home. The adjacent farm (once part of Avon Hill) was purchased in 2009 providing access to over 1.5 mile of the Rockfish River where it then empties into the James River. The 1860s house, now called Avon Hill Lodge, is now completed with a full ground up restoration. Perhaps the most lasting and beautiful impression that Avon Hill leaves visitors with is the English and American boxwood gardens. Many of these old world shrubs now reach over 40 feet in height. The “hill” used to be a boxwood farm. In 1932 the property owners loaded 22 flatcar trains with boxwoods which today are part of the landscaping of the Governor’s Mansion in Williamsburg Virginia.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: Avon Hill is run by a father-daughter duo. Bruce is a history fanatic that has been in the service business space for over 30 years. Sarah has a background in Public Relations and hospitality and grew up exploring Avon Hill. Together they provide an unforgettable guest experience!

Why the Owner Chose Charlottesville:
Avon Hill Lodge is Old Virginia. It will take you back in time and will leave you with special memories. My first time I climbed the drive way leading to Avon Hill I was immediately struck with by the obvious history and energy of this historic property. It was 1999, in search a new domicile. Through my experience living in England in the early nineties I developed a deep fascination for old and historic properties. Having looked at over 50 properties in the Charlottesville area, it was the first drive up the Avon Hill that I knew I was home.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
Avon Hill offers private river access, a private pool, beautiful boxwood gardens, unique history and so much more!
