This charming, architect-renovated home on historic Locust Avenue welcomes you with light-filled rooms, beautiful finishes, and Domino mag-inspired decor. Its 2 bedrooms comfortably sleep 4. Just minutes from the Downtown Mall, UVA & Rivanna Trails!
The Locust House lands you in one of Charlottesville's most beloved neighborhoods. It's right downtown, yet one of the quietest areas in the city. The home's recent renovation by its owner-architect takes full advantage of the home's excellent orientation; sunlight fills the cheery rooms from dawn til dusk. Beautiful finishes such as the original hardwood floors & new soapstone counters---combined with original art and new lighting--give the eye wonderful places to roam.
Guests may access the full house and yard, with the exception of the attic.

I'm an architect, writer, and mother of two. I design and write for families.
In high school and graduate school, I spent time living in Japan and Italy. My parents worked in academia, and we often hosted visiting professors and their families--or were hosted by them. These experiences gave me an enduring interest in travelers and traveling.
Things I can't get enough of: Kalamata olives, design magazines, martial arts, opinionated children, and sweet deals from the Habitat Store.
When I travel, the experiences that most imprint on my memory are the unexpected discoveries as much as the postcard monuments. A unique gallery, a hoppy pint, a high-five with a trolley driver, a polished doorknob, or the glimpse of a mother's sweet shush-shush to her baby. These go in the vault of Why Life is Beautiful. As a host, I want guests to feel at home, and to design little touches that make their visits special.
