Description

NEW LISTING- We are excited to offer the exquisite Ben Coolyn Farm Estate to Stay Charlottesville's Premiere Property portfolio. 

As seen in  Architectural Digest, Virginia Living, and featured annually in Virginia Garden Week, Ben Coolyn Farm is steeped in old Virginia history and style. This 144 acre estate sits atop rolling hills with views that inspire year-round. While the historic nature of this 1870s Federal Style stately retreat has been impeccably preserved, you will also enjoy all of the warmth and comfortability that you would expect of a well-appointed home. The delicate elegance throughout every room is only further accentuated by the sweeping views of the surrounding landscape. Whether entertaining indoors or strolling the outdoors to marvel at the pastoral setting, Ben Coolyn is sure to impress even the most discerning traveler.

Enter the gates to the property and follow the tree-lined drive that leads you straight to the front entrance loop. An additional parking area is included to the right side of the home, ideal for larger groups. Breathe in the country air to begin your relaxing getaway at this bucolic retreat while admiring the formal gardens encompassing the house. The immaculately maintained grounds and the spectacular views of the farm and vineyard provide the perfect backdrop for making memories with your friends and family during your stay at this idyllic estate. 

Each of the home's five guest rooms exhibit a unique personality filled with elements of historic Virginian design. With three en suite baths and one shared hall bath for two of the bedrooms, your guests will enjoy the privacy they would expect from a modern hotel during their stay. Awake refreshed from a comfortable slumber and leisurely descend down one of the two staircases to make your way to the solarium for a relaxing start to your day; savor your morning coffee while the sun streams through the wall-to-wall French doors and windows.

If you enjoy entertaining you will love the ample seating in the expansive living room, anchored by a wood grand piano in the far corner. It is the perfect spot to gather with hor d'oeuvres and an aperitif while one of the area's private chefs is busy preparing a locally-sourced, three-course meal in the kitchen. As dinnertime approaches, be sure to appreciate the curated selection of artwork as you exit the living room and move across the hallway into the spacious formal dining room that is set to host your dinner party.

Behind the house you will see more beautifully tended gardens, including a greenhouse, a private pool and pool house, and captivating views of the vineyards and pastures. With the rolling hills as your backdrop, enjoy the heated pool with your group during the summer months.The pool house is its own separate dwelling, featuring a living room, full bathroom, and kitchen on the main level. A set of stairs take you up to the pool house bedroom which is a great additional sleeping space that could be used as a "honeymoon" cottage or anyone seeking their own retreat. 

Located just 6 miles from downtown Charlottesville and the University of Virginia, Ben Coolyn Farm is perfectly situated to provide you and your guests with the seclusion of a vineyard estate property while maintaining easy access to the area's many amenities. Keswick Hall, Castle Hill Cider and Keswick Vineyards are all located in the surrounding area. The location of Ben Coolyn will grant you a one-of-a-kind experience, with just a short drive to activities both in the city and at the other nearby vineyards and attractions.
