Designed by esteemed Charlottesville Architect Thomas W.S. Craven, AIA, Chathill resides less than three miles west of Charlottesville, Farmington Country Club and the University of Virginia. Built of brick and blending Federal architecture with the Palladian concept of central block with portico balanced by wings, Mr. Craven created a mid-20th century gem. Triple sash windows, French doors, oak floors, 9' and 9 1/2'ceilings with five fireplaces are hallmarks of the interior. The principal rooms are of a generous scale to capture the original intent of entertaining. The Guest Wing with kitchen and full bath is another notable feature. The gunnite pool is sited amidst flowering shrubs with the period detail of bath houses balanced opposite each other at the east end. The grounds are a carefully chosen garden landscape and eco-system of native flowering shrubs, trees and Virginia hardwoods. The land is generally level with optimum space for lawn and play areas. Horses and hounds have been kept on the 18.5+ acres in the past and the stables can be utilized again with deep-rooted pasture. The view to the south can be improved to capture a broad hill and farm adjacent. The residence at Chathill is centrally located in the property offering the utmost in privacy complemented by the setting among farms and estates of Western Albemarle. It is exceedingly rare to find acreage of this proportion with such convenience to the business community, shops, health care, sporting events, schools and more.
