Charlottesville/Richmond VA area
I am a retired gardener living in a house downtown so that I can walk instead to restaurants/shops. The house has a sweet patio with a little garden as well as a screened in porch. I enjoy reading, listening to the radio and wandering downtown.
Our Home & Location
This is a three bedroom house with 2 1/2 baths and windows that look out over the neighbors immaculate backyard. The house is heated with radiators and set at 65° . In the summer we have ceiling fans downstairs and central air upstairs. You can easily walk downtown and there several restaurants, shops. Great hiking is found at Madison's home, Montpelior as well as a good Community theater. River paddling and kayaking are not far and some excellent junk shops to be perused. Charlottesville is about 45 minutes south and there is plenty of Civil War history in the area.
Responsibilities & Pets
Gizmo’s happiness and well being is the priority while staying here. He is now elderly and sometimes sleeps away the day. There are several flowerpots and bird baths that need to be watered. Fun places to visit and lovely roads to travel on are some of the perks. Yes, I have internet and I stream Netflix on the TV. Gizmo should not be alone for more than two or three hours. This is an old house and it is a safe neighborhood with friendly neighbors one of whom keeps ducks and I bring my compost to feed them with.
