About Susan Pierce
We are Virginia natives and our family has lived in the Charlottesville area for several generations.
Susan Pierce purchased this House in 1953
Why Susan Pierce chose Afton
This property was purchased by our Grandfather in 1953 as a working apple orchard. As a local Charlottesville businessman, he wanted to create a country getaway on the mountain. We've made his dream a reality by restoring the and enlarging the original log cabin. Our extended family spends holidays and long weekends here also.
What makes this House unique
When you really want to get away from it all, this is the place. This double, restored log cabin is located on 400 acres of forested mountainside. Wildlife abounds; bear, variety of bird species, raccoons, deer, flocks of turkeys. On a clear night the sky is dense with bright stars (UVA conservatory is located close by because light pollution is so low). Once or twice a day you can hear a train whistle far in the distance, to take you back a century. The cabin is centrally located to the area's wineries. Charlottesville is so close by that in 20 minutes you can be at a UVA football game or University of Virginia graduation, or at the historic mall complete with its outdoor pavilion and live performances. It's the same distance in the other direction to Wintergreen Ski Resort. There are many activities within easy distance along scenic local byways; historic locations such as Thomas Jefferson's Monticello in Charlottesville and the Frontier Culture Museum in Staunton, cultural experiences such as Blackfriar's Shakespeare Theater, outdoor adventures such as tubing and canoeing on the James River and hiking, apple and strawberry picking, Skyline Drive for fall colors, antique stores, wineries, breweries, horse shows, golf, fine dining, contra dancing, Lock'n Music Festival, Blue Ridge Rock Festival, and much more!
