Charlottesville, Virginia Retreat

Our architectural-award winning “solar envelope” home is both private and situated in a community of modern homes with tennis courts, a walking trail and a large pond for canoeing. The 1811 sq. foot fully furnished home has three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a large living/dining/kitchen open area and a sun room opening onto a large deck. The home has mountain views three seasons a year and is light and spacious. It’s located on approximately 3 wooded acres on the side of a small mountain, a few miles off Interstate 64 -- only 9 miles and 15 minutes from the University of Virginia. There is no lawn to mow, and required exterior maintenance is minimal.

On the first floor, the sun room has a cathedral ceiling and a wall of glass doors and skylights running the length of the house, facing a large deck with views of the Blue Ridge in fall, winter and spring, and of the woods in summer. The spacious living/dining/kitchen area has a wood stove. A bedroom and bathroom are next to these rooms, also on the first floor. Our furniture is both modern and classic and there is original art throughout. The kitchen includes a pantry and a full set of cooking and dining ware. On the second floor there is a master bedroom with a four-poster queen bed, an adjoining bathroom with shower and washer-dryer. An adjacent bedroom has a built-in desk and shelving that could also be used as an office. There is zoned heat and air conditioning throughout the house.

The house is located in an excellent school district: elementary (Murray), middle (Henley), and high (Western Albemarle). Enjoy the location, the views, the quiet, and the convenience to Charlottesville.

Rent is $1800 a month, plus utilities (electricity and water). Rental is for a minimum of 6 months.

About Me
I live in Northern Virginia and commute to Cambridge to teach at MIT as a lecturer and lead a research project. My field of interest is technology policy and innovation. The home I am offering for rental is a second home in Charlottesville, Virginia where my brother taught Psychology at the University of Virginia for many years.
