Charlottesville house description

You will experience a true Virginia country getaway at this estate cottage. With a separate driveway entrance this home is conveniently hidden off the main road. Easy access to head in to Charlottesville to the east or the mountains to the west. The home is Cape Cod in style and was once the home of a famous Gibson Girl. Her family history has a stronghold to this area. The cottage shares the 78 acres with the Ramsay estate home which is on the National Register of Historic Places. Breath taking views of the Blue Ridge Mountains are just beyond the rolling pastures. Decorated in a casually elegant fashion throughout, the cottage has a family room at one end which makes for a nice private spot to read or enjoy intimate conversation. Then enter the full kitchen, the living room/dining area combination, and the screened in porch with a panoramic view. Two bedrooms are on the first floor. The exquisite master Queen bedroom has a fireplace and ensuite bathroom. A lovely sunny Twin room has a private hall bath, the Twin beds can be converted to a comfortable King bed arrangement. A third Twin bedroom and bathroom are upstairs. Outdoors and just steps away from the cottage is an historic stone fireplace and patio area equipped with outdoor lighting, a gas grill, and speakers where you can enjoy grilling and entertaining. Truly a magical place for your special vacation.
