Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: Bill and Kathy Daggett purchased their Earlysville home in early 2000. Bill, after attending the University of Virginia, became an architect, currently focusing on humane animal shelter designs. Kathy, born and raised in Kansas, arrived in Charlottesville in the late 80's. A former insurance executive, she is now owner of Farley's Bar & Grill in her home town of Lindsborg, Kansas.

Why the Owner Chose Charlottesville:
With it's proximity to the airport and quiet country setting the home was a perfect choice for their propensity for travel and Bill's interest in aviation. After their 5 children moved on to make their own families Bill and Kathy decided they would like to share their expansive home with people looking for a whole family alternative to traditional hotels.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Besides the obvious bonus of having a private pool and hot tub, The White Elephant offers an affordable alternative to families and those looking to have a more private group experience than traditional hotels can offer. With two full size kitchens and two outdoor grills the possibilities for a family style experience with all the amenities a home has to offer are yours for the taking!
