Quiet Bungalow just 5 Minute Walk from Charlottesville's Famous Downtown Mall - Restaurants, Bars, Shopping
Welcome to our quiet urban craftsman home! We live right in the middle of everything in the thriving small city of Charlottesville, Virginia. The house is literally a five minute walk to the famous pedestrian Downtown Mall, where you'll find a wide selection of small shops, restaurants, cafes, bars, and theaters.
Our Home & Location
Our home is an updated 1920s craftsman with three bedrooms and two full bathrooms. It is on a quiet dead-end street in the highly desirable neighborhood of Belmont, and it's hard to believe how close it is to all the city's amenities. The Downtown Mall is just a 5-minute walk away, and downtown Belmont is just 2 blocks away with a cluster of charming restaurants and a couple of shops. Charlottesville's other famous landmarks are the University of Virginia and Thomas Jefferson's magnificent home, Monticello.
Our house would be wonderful for a couple or single person looking for a change of scenery in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. We have a new memory foam mattress on our queen bed in the master bedroom, and plenty of comfortable seating in our cozy living room as well....
Additionally, our home is ideal for a family with children, as we have a darling children's bedroom with two single beds, and a separate bedroom with a luxurious Bloom crib for a baby or toddler. We also have an attic playroom with a host of toys, games, books, and an extra queen-sized air mattress, should it be needed.
In 15-20 minutes, you can drive out into the beautiful countryside of Albemarle county where there are wide variety of wineries and breweries. The Blue Ridge Parkway and Shenandoah National Park are only 30 minutes away, and there you will find mountain hikes and views.
The regional airport (CHO) is just 20 minutes away and has frequent connections from major hubs. Other nearby airports are in Washington, DC, (IAD, DCA, BWI - 2 hour drive) and Richmond, VA (RIC - 1 hour drive). + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
The house sitters will be taking care of our dog and cat, along with watering a few potted plants indoors. Sadie is a two year old Australian labradoodle. She is full of love for everyone and quite calm for her age. She shouldn't be left alone for more than about six hours during the day. Siena is our curious and friendly Maine Coon cat. She is very easy to take care of and loves a quiet pet or snuggle in the evenings.
