About this listing
Beautiful home just off Rugby Road in quiet family neighborhood. 5 bdrms - 3 upstairs (K master, Double, Double), 2 bdrms in basement (Double, "bunk room" 4 singles). 3 1/2 baths.
Cheery, sunny, comfortable, old family home with three bedrooms and two bathrooms upstairs, a main living floor with large new kitchen, living room, family room, and mudroom. A basement apartment (with a separate entrance as well as internal connection) with two bedrooms, full bath, living room, partial kitchen, one double bed bedroom and one room with five singles. The basement is roughly finished, kiddish, not even a little bit elegant :) My teenage boys looooove it. Games, tv, etc in basement. Main floor covered porch is lovely for cocktails or coffee. MBdrm has a second floor deck up in the trees. Mature plantings and a gorgeous street.
Responsible guests can use the house like their own - respectfully.
Interaction with Guests
As much as they want. I'm an anesthesiologist at UVa and will be closeby all graduation weekend. My husband has a home 5 miles outside of town and we'll be there, easily accessible to guests if they need anything. Restaurant recommendations, a ride somewhere . . .
This neighborhood is a 3 minute walk from the fraternities (not that I spend time there) and less than a mile from the Rotunda. We should be able to hear the students, but just down our little hill from Rugby Road it is silent and sweet and full of professors and their families. Very sweet, much sought-after neighborhood. In the event you need to go to JPJ there is shortcut at the end of our street that allows you to walk there in less than 10 minutes. You can actually see JPJ over the trees of our neighborhood. The UVa bus runs within a quarter mile of our house and city transit (both the free trolley downtown and the main bus line) are within a mile and a half mile of our house. Walking to the UVa corner for dinner or bagels and coffee is a pleasant walk - shorter than a lot of students make to class each day.
Very convenient public transit. Three bus lines - UVA, free downtown trolley, and CAT city bus lines a very easy walk. Park in our driveway or on our street. If you need help to or from the airport, I'd be glad to help or even pick you up so we can meet.
We will rent the house to a responsible family for UVa events (graduation and parent's weekend); we expect guests to behave like we do . . . respectfully towards our home and neighbors, enjoying themselves in a responsible manner. You can't have big parties here but you can certainly have large family dinners. Just ask if you're not sure what would be appropriate to the house and neighborhood and I'll be glad to let you know.
Table extends with leaves to 4x10 feet (and has a narrow addition to make it 12 feet long) with table cloth and chairs to seat 12 people.
Lovely house. Perfect for a large family. Served us well for graduation weekend. About a 15 - 20 minute walk to the Lawn. Easy parking at the house. Lots of bedrooms -- Master w/bath and 2 large rooms upstairs. Basement was perfect for kids with it's own full bath. Lee was a gracious hostess. Definitely better than a bunch of hotel rooms. Basketball court was great to keep our young teen occupied!
