About the property

5 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 10

Located on Old Garth Rd. just beyond the back entrance to Farmington Country Club, this house is convenient to both UVA and Barracks Road Center, and is only 32 mi. from skiing at Wintergreen. Positioned high above the road amongst tall trees on a three acre lot, the house lends a sense of privacy. In the back, a flagstone terrace surrounded by natural flora and huge azaleas provides a great place to enjoy Charlottesville's awesome weather. Inside, feel right at home in the beautiful kitchen and great room. The upstairs contains three bedrooms and three baths, while across a short breezeway along one side of the patio are two more bedrooms and a bath. This house is great for one large family, two families, or even a group of friends in town for a reunion.

Extremely elegant and lovely Home

  • 5 of 5

We booked the house for a family reunion. There was plenty of space to handle the family and the accommodations were beautiful. We enjoyed cocktails out back and enjoyed several lovely family meals in the dining room. The furnishings are very comfortable and the house was very clean. We will definitely come back

Excellent home with great location

We had a wonderful stay during our wedding week. The house was perfect for the 8 or 9 guests staying. Location is excellent and all amenities etc worked fine. Owner was pleasant to deal with and helpful although we did not experience any issues or problems. Would definitely stay again!

Wonderful location for our large family

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVED our stay here! We were with our 3 adult children, their spouses, and a 2 year old. The breezeway was perfect for separating the smaller child from the activity in the main house. We loved sitting outside on the patio and chatting. The house had EVERYTHING we needed! Would highly recommend this home to anyone!

This house was perfect for our group!

  • 5 of 5

Four couples came to Charlottesville to attend a wedding. We had plenty of space and enjoyed the fully equipped kitchen. The house is beautiful and close to Farmington Country club. We would love to come back and explore the nearby wineries.

Lovely home for wedding weekend

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for our family for our daughter's wedding weekend. (The wedding was at Kings Family Winery just down the road in Crozet.) Pat, the owner, was very responsive from the beginning of the booking process a year ago through our arrival Memorial Day weekend, answering in advance my questions about the home and letting us stop by for a quick look on an earlier weekend while in town for wedding preparations. The house is spacious and beautifully furnished in a classic style, and works well for larger groups. While we had 5-7 family members sleeping at the house over the four day rental, we were able easily to entertain a group of 12 for dinner. The kitchen is well equipped with basic supplies and serving dishes galore. The location is great - not too far from downtown Charlottesville, but also well situated for excursions to wineries and breweries to the west. A special place where we created family memories for a lifetime.

Perfectly comfortable home for groups

  • 5 of 5

The Old Garth house was the perfect choice for our girls weekend. There was plenty of room for the ten of us to spread out and plenty of beds for everyone. The house and grounds are lovely - we only wish the weather had been even warmer so we could have enjoyed the patio! The house is conveniently located to groceries, breakfast, and just a short cab away from downtown Charlottesville. I will definitely recommend this house to any friends planning a visit to the area.
