About This Listing
National historic landmark with a colorful history. Beautiful Greek Revival architecture. Only one mile from the Downtown Mall and just off Rt 250, meaning easy access to attractions both East and West of town.
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 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!
Staying at Enderly was a wonderful experience. Our group was in Charlottesville for a wedding and Chris was very accommodating to all of our needs. The house is amazing, very open and spacious. We felt right at home and greatly enjoyed our stay.
We stayed at Enderly for a bachelorette weekend and we could not have asked for a more relaxing and spacious accommodation! charlottesville and the surrounding vineyards were lovely and the house was more stunning in person than the pictures reflected. The backyard and screened in porch were very comfortable for long talks and iced tea. The bedrooms are charming and we were very happy to have such a large kitchen at out disposal. Chris is a very proactive host and we would love to stay there again and continue to explore charlottesville!
Enderly is a beautiful home and was perfect place for our family to gather from across the country for graduation. The house is well equipped, beds are comfortable and porches and gardens are lovely. We couldn't have asked for a better home for the weekend. Thank you!
We had a group of 8 stay at Enderly and it worked out perfectly! We came to Charlottesville to run the half marathon and this was the perfect location. We were less than a mile from the start so we could easily get to and from the race and main downtown area without having to worry about parking. Chris was very responsive to my emails prior to the stay and they left a good amount of information for us about the area. A couple people have commented about the place not having "4 bedrooms" as advertised. I know Chris worked to get the 4th bedroom settled before we arrived and we did in fact have 4 bedrooms all with beds (either twins, queen or king) in them. There was also an additional room with a pull out couch. We had a wonderful visit!
About the Host, Chris
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!
