The Homestead

Although Jill, Chris and Penny each come from different parts of the country, we have all come to love our home in Charlottesville.  Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Charlottesville is certainly one of the prettiest spots in the country. From our townhouse, we have a good view of the Pantops mountains, and we're only a short walk from the Rivanna River.  We're also just a few minutes walk from Penn Park, one of the town's prettiest parks and a favorite spot for the whole family. Jill likes to run through the park's fitness trail;  Penny likes to hunt squirrels on the nature trail;  and Chris likes to play tennis at the park's beautiful courts.

Here are some pictures of our house and the neighborhood:

Here is Pantops Mountain overlooking the LeParc neighborhood.

The outside of our house.  It's a townhouse. As you can see, we haven't done much in the way of landscaping!

Our front door.  Note the pretty seahorse birdbath and the duck welcome sign!

We'll post some pictures of the inside of the house in a few days. In the meantime, here's a picture of our new curio cabinet and the mantel over our fireplace.. 

Sometime during the summer of 2003, we'll be moving to Dallas, Texas for a year, and then to Houston. Take a look at our TEXAS 2003 page!
