Crush of the Week – Fairytale of Cville

cotw – fairytale of cville

Our real estate crush this week is the magical, one of a kind, fairytale of cville. The cedar sided, fairytale cottage is shrouded in warm oak paneling, with a stone fireplace (would there be any other type in a fairytale?), skylights, vaulted ceilings, and multiple decks. The detached, heated 2 car garage has a fully kitted out 1 bedroom apartment above it. What makes this property even more magical is the treehouse. Not your average, rope ladder, backyard treehouse, either. It is built around a central, live trunk, with knotty pine paneling, air conditioning, kitchen, loft sleeping area, and WiFi! Kind of a dream of mine, so I am crushing on this super hard. The three little pigs, the little red hen, the three billy goats gruff, and more could all coexist happily within their own separate fenced paddocks (ask about the goats – they could convey if you’d like them) Located in Western Albemarle, the property is a rural, fairytale idyll while still being super convenient to both UVA & downtown Crozet.
