In Albemarle County, Virginia, there exists a certain kind of elegance that artfully melds luxurious amenities with sustainable country living. Revel in the best of both worlds in a community where one can spend their ideal day perfecting their golf swing, meeting with friends over a leisurely gourmet lunch, shopping on the pedestrian-friendly Downtown Mall, enjoying the excitement of a UVA basketball game, tending to cattle, or riding a horse through the fields at Round Hill. The property serves as an ideal base for those who enjoy city amenities yet desire a more private and peaceful lifestyle. Round Hill Farm is truly the quintessential Virginia country estate.
“Round Hill offers the opportunity to live in a private, manicured farm setting yet be mere moments from the conveniences, amenities, and social life of Charlottesville, Virginia,” explains Loring Woodriff, Principal Broker at Loring Woodriff Real Estate Associates. “This historic town is the home to Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello and has been a draw for decades due to multiple factors including the surrounding countryside’s physical beauty, its vibrant downtown scene that includes a 9 block, outdoor pedestrian mall, and Charlottesville is home to The University of Virginia, a perennially #1-voted public university.”
As you enter the gates of Round Hill Farm, staggering, panoramic Blue Ridge views greet you, and a gently winding drive takes you through the estate’s manicured landscape of gracious meadows and gardens. Built in 1940, the 10,949 square foot, 5-bed, 7.5 bath home was given new life by its current owners who seamlessly blended the old with the new to a create a grand family home. New additions include a masterfully renovated master suite, expansive family room, and a modern kitchen which overlooks the Blue Ridge Mountain views. Heating and cooling were upgraded using super-efficient geothermal energy technology. A dramatic outdoor stone fireplace, covered porch as well as open blue stone terraces were also added, providing endless options for admiring nature’s beauty.
The picturesque manor home also offers seven fireplaces, a garage apartment, gardens, farm dependencies, and a magnificently appointed swimming pool. Truly defining farm-to-table, the property is a working farm with greenhouses, cattle, and chickens. Life is bliss at Round Hill Farm. Just ask the farm manager, who enjoys riding her horses through the fields and down to the Reservoir for a drink of water.
“While Round Hill’s setting epitomizes rural tranquility and abuts the Reservoir (a portion of the Rivanna River), one can be at the Charlottesville airport (direct flights to Charlotte, Chicago, NYC-LaGuardia and Atlanta) in about 7-8 minutes,” concludes Loring Woodriff. It doesn’t take much convincing for one to see all the joys that can be found at this fairytale offering. Will you be the next owner of Round Hill to create lasting memories?
