The house is just south of Charlottesville in a wooded area on a mountainside. The house has a great living room/dining room and guest suite on the main floor perfect for entertaining, and bedrooms upstairs for us. Watch for hanging plants on the porch to the right. We also want to put native plants and wildflowers in front to replace the lawn.
Out in back is a terrific playground apparatus for all the parish kids. And the house is only a 10 minute drive from St. Paul's.
Our new next door neighbor, we discovered yesterday, is a retired Presbyterian minister and the founder of Virginia Interfaith Power and Light (St. Paul's is a member, and this blog promotes the green organization to the left on this page). We are therefore going to dub our mountain "Holy Hill" (with apologies to the GTU) and the house "Glebe Cottage."
We are delighted! Moving commences immediately. Now if someone can find us the keys.
