Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

Since the days of Thomas Jefferson the Dabney Carr house at Rosneath has offered Virginians and their guests just about the perfect place to greet the four seasons. Today, a newly remodeled kitchen and the latest entertainment gear enhance the experience. Rosneath is a great place to stay indoors with friends and family on a crisp winter night, walk in the meadows on a cool spring morning, sip a drink on the porch as the summer sun sets, or take in the hardwood trees’ fall fashion show.

The house rests in 120 acres of meadow and woodland, less than 25 miles from the Wintergreen Resort, 18 minutes from UVA and Monticello, 20 minutes from the foot of the Blue Ridge Parkway and Skyline Drive and a few miles from the historic, enchanting village of Batesville. It’s minutes from the Pippin Hill winery and within a half hour to the Trump Vineyards. With all that nearby, guests often say they would prefer to remain on the property and breathe pure mountain air, drink clear fresh water from the land’s private spring and enjoy dazzling sunsets and a star filled night sky.

The kitchen is newly remodeled and fully equipped. There is a dining room, media room/parlor and living room. Upstairs, the master bedroom has a private bathroom and an adjacent office that can be used as a bedroom or nursery. Down the hall there are two bedrooms, one with a queen bed, and the other with two twin beds.

About Randy Elliott

The house has been in our family for over 60 years. We were a military family and posted all over the states. Coming back to Rosneath was, for us, a chance to recharge and be surrounded by beauty and nature (our other residence was often surrounded by barb wire and bombers). Now that our parents are gone we thought it would be wonderful for others to be able to escape from the stress of their working lives as we have,

Randy Elliott purchased this farmhouse in 1948

Why Randy Elliott chose Charlottesville

Many generations of our family were raised nearby in Ivy and other parts of Albermarle County. Our grandfather knew his son-in-law and his daughter would be raising children at military postings and wanted an anchor for his family, http://youtu.be/DpziAVMBcxY

What makes this farmhouse unique

It is secluded and restful and yet close to wonderful amenities and a thriving cultural experience surrounding the University of Virginia.

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Our great experience began months before our travel date. The house has been in the family for generations, and online communications with Ross were much warmer than you usually have with property managers.

The rooms were large & comfortably furnished; the kitchen easily accommodated 3 of us fixing meals at the same time. And we had a hard time deciding where to relax outside & enjoy the beautiful country scenes!

The one downside was leaving the house each day to enjoy the many day trip opportunities. The listing doesn't exaggerate how convenient it is to Monticello, the Blue Ridge, etc. (Highly recommend Grand Caverns.) We even did a cider tasting at an orchard just a couple of miles away!

Restaurants nearby are excellent. Nearby Dr. Ho's was good enough to go to twice, and we also stuffed ourselves at Smoked in Crozet.

But with all the daily destinations, when I think of Rosneath I will think that I'd like to go back just to spend more time at the house itself and its delightful surroundings. Thank you so much Ross and Misty!

Wonderful Home with modern amenities!

  • 5 of 5

Three friends and I stayed at Rosneath for our annual girls trip. We toured local wineries and historical plantations and homes. What a great, pleasant place to stay with more rooms than we could use! The house was immaculate! Even though it was an old, old home, it had all the modern amenities. Misty and Dan were nearby if we needed anything. Beautiful rural setting with porches, decks and patios.
