About Ame Hellman

Ame Hellman and her husband Doug, a master builder for Ilex Construction, purchased Adaven Farm in 2005 and embarked on a serious 'restoration' of the historical property. In addition to the farmhouse, guest house, cow barn guest house and grounds, the farm serves as a home to competition dressage horses. A native to Virginia, Ame headed west to attend college and law school where she met her husband Doug, a Nevada native. Prior to returning to the Commonwealth, the couple spent years looking for the perfect location and property--finding Adaven farm was just that.

Ame Hellman purchased this house in 2005

Why Ame Hellman chose Virginia

The Somerset Estate District boasts some of the most historic and picturesque farms in Virginia. The Virginia Outdoor Foundation holds many conservation easements around Adaven Farm--and the surrounding area reflects most residents' desire to protect its natural character. Adaven Farm is protected by an easement as well. Nature hikes, birding and serenity abound and the 'cow barn' is truly a luxurious experience.

What makes this house unique

Great character, historical charm, proximity to Charlottesville and historical sites, wineries and gourmet restaurants make this a truly unique property to rent.
