= marks the location of this home
Charlottesville is the historic town where Thomas Jefferson lived at Monticello and designed the beautiful University of Virginia. We live in view of the Blue Ridge Mountains and are 2 1/2 hours from Washington DC and the Atlantic Ocean beaches, 1 hour from Richmond, 2 hours from Williamsburg. Charlottesville is an international city with a high degree of culture - galeries, museums, restaurants, concerts, theatre, lectures, cafes on a downtown pedestrian mall etc. Yet it is easy to join a hiking or boating club even for a short time. Only 20 minutes to the mountains!
Something about ourselves
I am a single woman in my sixties and have a lovable Portuguese Water Dog (yes, the breed Obama has) - she is hyperallergenic (I am allergic to dogs and Leala is OK for me). I could travel with or without her though I would love to bring her along. If you don't want her in your home, I would ask that you take care of her here. I am bilingual in French, having lived in Paris and visited extensively throughout France and Europe. I have founded, directed and taught in three Montessori schools and have been a Realtor for many years. I will respect & take care of your home. See the Homepage.
