What may strike you first about Martha Jefferson House isn’t really the House at all, but what is around it. The House sits on a private cul-de-sac, lined with old trees, and close to the beautifully landscaped grounds of the University of Virginia. In the heart of Charlottesville, the House is mere blocks away from churches, libraries, shopping, and bus routes, as well as medical and educational resources. You will also appreciate the unique and spacious gardens and terraces surrounding the House. They are beautifully landscaped…often with the help of residents…with room to read, walk, talk, or just relax.
Imagine in 1921 seeing a beautiful brick Georgian style mansion at the end of a private cul-de-sac with a lush forest that surrounded it. As the years have gone by The University of Virginia has built around that same private cul-de-sac, bringing together not only the opportunity for UVA Students to volunteer and be a part of our neighborhood, but also for Alumni to live near the Grounds once more. With amazing shopping, restaurants, theaters and parks nearby there is something for everyone at Martha Jefferson House.
