About the Property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath Completely Renovated Home. Sleeps Up To Six.

Located at the apex of Hinton Ave in the vibrant and sought after neighborhood of Belmont, HighGround is the perfect landing place from which to take in all that Charlottesville has to offer. Highground has been thoughtfully renovated offering 2 spacious bedrooms; a comfortable living room with 51' plasma television, sound-bar, and available sleeper sofa; tranquil bathroom with great storage and rain shower; fully appointed, brand new kitchen with quartz counters, stainless appliances including gas range, and great light; and a generous dining room for those nights when you want to dine in. HighGround sits high on the hill on one of Belmont's flagship streets and is within sight of some of Charlottesville's most renowned local restaurants, including Mas Tapas, Tavola, and Lampo, The Local, and Junction (modern Mexican) among others. We are also just a short walk to the famous Downtown Pedestrian Mall with wonderful local boutiques; live music at The Jefferson Theater or Sprint Pavilion (Downtown Amphitheatre); theater, comedy, or opera at The Paramount Theater and live arts; Violet Crown Cinema, delicious dining options, gelato, and the Charlottesville Visitor Center. Many of Charlottesville's most popular attractions (Monticello/Ashlawn) are no more than 5 miles away. The wine culture here has gained national acclaim and tasting rooms at local wineries such as Veritas, Barboursville, Pollack, White Hall, Keswick, Jefferson, Glass House along with the burgeoning brewery tours of places like Blue Mountain Brewery, Three Notch'd, Devils Backbone, Champion, and Wild Wolf are within a 10-30 minutes drive and make for memorable day-trips. If you are an outdoor enthusiast, the Rivanna Trail (located in Belmont, about 5 minutes away) and the Blue Ridge Mountains are right down the road as well and are easily visited to take in the stunning vistas.

HighGround offers off-street parking for 2 cars and a level, fenced yard for backyard entertaining. A charcoal grill is available upon request. Air conditioning and wireless internet are included in your nightly rate as are local coffee, bottled water, and light refreshments. No pets, No smoking.

If you are traveling with children, we have many accessories available such as a highchair, pack and play, toys, books, etc. Feel free to leave yours at home and let us know what may make your visit more comfortable. A hair dryer, iron/ironing board, basic toiletries, and plenty of towels are all available for your stay. While several small, local markets (Market Street Market and Keevil & Keevil Grocery/Kitchen) are close by for basic kitchen essentials, we are happy to supply some basic grocery needs if desired for a small fee.

HighGround is the perfect alternative to staying at a local hotel. Allow yourself to spread out a bit and enjoy a cozy living room and a freshly brewed cup of coffee on your schedule or relax with a magazine on the front porch. We pride ourselves on having an impeccably clean environment, with top of the line beds and linens--everything you would need to feel at home.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Having both attended the University of Virginia in the early 90's and after receiving degrees in English/French (Grier) and Architecture (Kevin), they decided to make Charlottesville their home and have lived in the Belmont neighborhood since 1999. Kevin (mostly) grew up in California and Northern Virginia and Grier in New Hampshire. Following college, Kevin took his architecture skills and put them to use working with a high-end builder at Wintergreen to be able to learn the building trade first hand. In 2004 he opened his own design-build firm and put the best of both worlds together creating a one-stop-shop for his clients where his designs then became his next building project. Clean, simple lines and a bend toward Danish-influenced style with an emphasis on unique applications using natural wood make up much of what Kevin is drawn to. Grier took a different path post-college and opened a small cafe on the Uva 'Corner' which she successfully grew to eventually include a second location on the Downtown Mall and a mobile food truck. After nearly 8 years, in 2004 she sold her restaurant and refocused her interests toward a career which focused on her love of houses: real estate. 13 years later, Grier is an Associate Broker at the local Charlottesville firm Nest helping buyers and sellers alike. Grier and Kevin live nearby and personally renovated the entire home prior to listing on VRBO. They also act as the property managers and oversee the booking, cleaning, and guest's unique needs.

Why the Owner Chose Belmont, Charlottesville, VA, USA:
They have lived in Belmont for 18 years and have seen it undergo many changes, mostly all for the positive. It is wonderful to be able to share what they love about this neighborhood with others.

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
Some of the things that the owners love about HighGround include the gleaming natural light that filters throughout the house and the fact that while this home is only 1000 sq ft, it lives much larger. The spaces feel both intimate and separate from one another. As indicated by its name, HighGround has a wonderful presence at the high point on the street. The front porch is the perfect vantage point from which to take in the evening sunset and they love that in less than 10 minutes they can walk to some of the finest dining, best local parks, coffee shops, small food markets, great shopping, UVa, and some of Charlottesville's oldest landmarks.
