Charlottesville Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description
Stunning Mountain Views Enclose This Welcoming Retreat From The World
Lovely 1898 country estate home located in the historic Keswick area, Turkey Run Farm is convenient to Charlottesville, but far enough away for amazing peace and quiet, and night skies. Very accessible to Monticello, Montpelier, many of the area’s most celebrated vineyards and cideries, the University of Virginia, the historic Charlottesville downtown, the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Skyline Parkway. Fantastic views of the Southwest Mountains can be enjoyed from several vantage points, complete with regular sightings of wild turkeys, albino deer and Bald Eagles. A wonderful, relaxing place to walk and ride bikes, Turkey Run Farm is a gracious and welcoming environment for family reunions, smaller wedding receptions and company retreats.
Four private bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and living room with fireplace are located on the main floor, with a stone family room and large farm kitchen in the English basement. Front and rear porches and stone terrace offer exquisite, unsullied views of the Southwest Mountains.

About Richard Davis
Richard Davis, the owner, grew up on a horse and cattle farm in nearby Gordonsville area and graduated from the University of Virginia. He has both worked in aviation and the space program for years and has traveled extensively. Richard has always found the Blue Ridge Mountains to be incredibly beautiful and inspiring. He spent years looking for a place in the area that met his dreams and was very excited to find Turkey Run Farm when it recently became available. He and his sister Deborah McLeod, who manages the property for him during his absences, have spent the past year restoring and furnishing it for guests as well as Richard's family's own part time use.
Richard Davis purchased this farmhouse in 2013
Why Richard Davis chose Charlottesville
Richard and his four children tremendously enjoy the nature there, the dramatic views of the mountains, the extensive landscape plantings all around the house, a place for the children to explore nature, the amazing clear views of the night skies, the graceful presence of history in the house, and most importantly, the incredible peace and quiet of the surroundings.
What makes this farmhouse unique
Turkey Run's greatest benefit is the tranquility that can be experienced from its outdoor spaces - the terrace swing or the ease of the front porch chairs. The only sounds that can be heard are the calls of birds and the rush of the wind.
