This unique property opens expansively to the RESERVOIR with impressive views and direct access. Designed by local Architect Alison Smith and built by Jeff Smith of Alterra Construction in 2000 as their own home. This house was designed with the marriage of two themes in mind, combining details of the ARTS & CRAFTS Movement with the overall feel of a MOUNTAIN RETREAT. The central portion of the home is constructed in the POST & BEAM tradition using exposed ANTIQUE HEART PINE structural elements. This double-height Gathering Space (includes Great Room, Kitchen and Dining) is also open to a Loft Space over the kitchen. Private, secluded, waterfront and only 10 minutes to Downtown Charlottesville.
