The most amazing Infinity Pool with dining deck, pavilion and hot tub. Also included is the Pool House with full kitchen, laundry (beach towels provided), Queen Sleep Sofa and a full bath. The Pavilion provides covered outdoor entertaining and relaxing. Features include dining table and living room area, plus Gas Grill. You get 2 houses for the price of one! The Pool and Pavilion are a beautiful spot to host small events (not more than a total of 50), including Engagement Parties, Small Weddings, Bridesmaid Luncheons and more!

                      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, 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 co-owner of Crozet's Mountainside Grille with her daughter Kara and Kara's fiancee Jon.

                      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 (plus Bill is a Private Pilot with a plane at Charlottesville Airport!) After the departure of their 5 children Bill and Kathy decided they would like to share their expansive home with people looking for a whole family alternative to traditional hotels.
