THE BELMONT FARMHOUSE
Built in the late 1800’s and known as the Eddins-Robinson House, this historic Belmont property was divided into apartments in the 1960s. All rental apartments have been newly renovated from top to bottom with lots of details left behind from the original house. Each apartment is appointed with a full kitchen. Yards on either side of the house make the area feel extra private. The vegetable gardens in various areas around the lot are shared with the neighbors and local restaurants. Relax on the front porch in a rocker or the porch swing – you’ll enjoy feeling like you’ve lived here for a long time.
Named one of “America’s Best Secret Neighborhoods” by Travel + Leisure, Belmont was one of the nation’s earliest planned neighborhoods in the 1890s. Now a trendy residential area, it’s also home to several great restaurants that are just a few steps beyond our backyard. Stroll over in the morning for coffee and pastries, or plan a romantic dinner.
Our tree lined street is full of young couples and families. The area is safe and walkable. Locals love the area because of the restaurants and close proximity to downtown.
THE BELMONT GUESTHOUSE
This property was the first real chance for our whole family to sink their teeth into designing a complete renovation of 4 apartments in a historic building. Converted into apartments somewhere around the 1930’s – 40’s, this old home hadn’t been touched since. It was a perfect opportunity for us to maintain many of the original details, add some that had been eliminated, and accomplish a true historic renovation. We love the charm of the Belmont neighborhood so much that we chose elements of its past to inspire our décor in each of the apartments. We call it our “Ode to Belmont”.
Located in the popular Belmont neighborhood, Downtown Belle is just a short stroll away from Charlottesville’s downtown mall and the nTelos Wireless Pavilion. The house has been completely remodeled and can comfortably sleep up to 6 people. The master bedroom has a king sized bed with it’s own en suite bathroom. The other two bedrooms have queen sized beds and share an adjoining full bathroom.
Feel free to take advantage of the gas range and fully stocked kitchen. Enjoy a bottle of local wine in the sunroom off the kitchen or outside on your own private patio area. Equipped with a charcoal grill, picnic table, and outdoor seating it’s a great place to unwind before exploring the many shops and restaurants Cville has to offer.
