Cozy Cottage in Heart of Downtown

This charming, architect-renovated home on historic Locust Avenue welcomes you with light-filled rooms, beautiful finishes, and Domino mag-inspired decor. Its 2 bedrooms comfortably sleep 4. Located just minutes from the Downtown Mall, UVA & Rivanna Trails. A five-star, Super-Host Airbnb listing, the Locust House is also available for long-term lease.

The Locust House lands you in Locust Grove, one of Charlottesville's most beloved neighborhoods. It's right downtown, yet one of the quietest areas in the city. The home's recent renovation takes full advantage of the home's excellent orientation; sunlight fills the cheery rooms from dawn til dusk. Beautiful finishes such as the original hardwood floors & new soapstone counters---combined with original art and new lighting--give the eye wonderful places to roam. The welcoming front and back yards make it easy to converse with neighbors and play pick-up games with friends and children.

Locust Avenue is the kind of street urban planners dream of: tree-lined, pedestrian-filled, and brimming with an interesting mix of architectural styles. Though now in the heart of downtown, the Locust house property was originally part of a large farm belonging to the Smith Family. The original Smith farmhouse remains--and is just two doors down from the Locust house. Nearby attractions abound: the Downtown Mall is a 15 minute walk out the front door to the left, and the Rivanna Trail System is an 8-minute walk out the front door to the right. The neighborhood's "home park" is Northeast Park, with play structures, picnic tables, a basketball court, a creek, a bridge, and nature trails. Locust Avenue is a vital, active corridor during the day, and is quiet and peaceful at night. Hooray for civic design!

Enjoy easy access to the University of Virginia via the city bus stop, across the street. Off-street parking. Winter mountain views. Convenient to 1-64, Rte 29, Rte 250. A 10-minute drive to Trader Joe's, Whole Foods Market, and a myriad of other shopping and dining options.

I'm sorry, but we haven't made any arrangement with Charlottesville architects so far. We are still waiting for their response to our request in search for an appartment in Charlottesville for 2020, Aug. to Dec. Probably, I've clicked the wrong button. By clicking "submit" I thought it meant simply that an info about our request was being sent to the Charlottesville architects... So: I'm still seraching for an appartment in Charlottesville!
