The space

Just under a mile from Charlottesville's Downtown Mall and only 2.4 miles from the Rotunda.

Enderly is listed on the National, State and Local historic registry. Built in 1859, it was originally the preeminent home of the Locust Grove neighborhood and later served as a tourist home taking overflow from the Monticello Hotel just off the downtown mall in court square (now the Court Square condos).

Once surrounded by an orchard, this city home still offers beautiful landscaping including a secret garden, several hundred year old magnolia, pergola covered in wisteria, an outdoor stone fireplace, grill, and two outbuildings boasting lots of character.

Inside the home there are four bedrooms and four full baths. Additionally, on the main level the drawing room can easily be converted to an additional bedroom with the pull out couch or inflatable mattresses (which can be found in the closet). Otherwise those rooms can be used along with the chef's kitchen, great room and library for entertaining.

Kitchen includes a Sub-Zero refrigerator, two ovens, warming drawer, steam oven, in-wall coffee maker, wine fridge, range-top, farmhouse style sink, two dishwashers, trash compactor, large butcher block island with seating.

Ample parking for five+ cars available on the property. Unrestricted street parking also available.

The listing was accurate, the house was simply lovely! They've really kept and/or restored the integrity of the house historically and it is wonderful! The garden is so beautiful and the screened in porch was perfect for the evenings. And the kitchen, the kitchen was awesome and just what we were looking for with our daughter's graduation. We had four elderly people with us and brought a gourmet chef with us so that we wouldn't have to run around going to different restaurants. She had plenty of space to cook some amazing meals, and the openness of the kitchen, dining, and casual living area really allows plenty of room for congregating without feeling crowded. All in all, it was a wonderful place for our family to stay. The hosts were extremely responsive and readily available for questions by text or phone. We felt well taken care of this past weekend!

Awesome hosts! Beautiful, inviting home! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Chris went out of his way to bring us a speaker for the weekend and was quickly available for any other questions we had.

Checkin was super easy, Chris was great to work with, and the house was wonderful! It is gorgeous and spacious, and close to everything we wanted to do in Charlottesville. Our group of 8 was very comfortably accommodated. Chris also volunteered to ship back a macbook charger one of us left--we thought we'd lost it forever!

The Enderly is an absolutely stunning home. It was the perfect setting for our family over graduation weekend - everyone had plenty of individual space, as well as great common areas for meals and socializing. Chris was very responsive to questions about the home even long before our stay. Easy access to 250 bypass from the home makes it simple to get around Charlottesville. Would highly recommend this beautiful home! Thank you for making it a perfect graduation weekend for our family.

Beautiful house, exactly as advertised. The photos don't even do it justice. Chris and Clare prepared the house wonderfully for our stay. The perfect place for a nice weekend in Cville!

Clare and I were married in September of 2012 and two months later purchased Enderly. We've been working hard ever since to make it our own, and are excited to call such a beautiful place home.

Originally from Alabama, Clare's family also spent a lot of time in Charlottesville and she later attended UVa for her BA, JD and MBA. Chris, from Northern Virginia, also attended UVa and later HBS and has spent the better part of his post college experience lucky enough to be living and working in Charlottesville.

Together we enjoy the many local restaurants and bars as well everything outdoors that Charlottesville has to offer. We love to share what's so great about this city, so when staying with us we'll be sure to leave a print out of all of our local recommendations!
