700 Locust Avenue Featured in The Hook’s ‘On The Block’

Nest Realty’s Laura Winn Smith’s listing on Locust Avenue has been featured in this week’s edition of The Hook’s On The Block section.

This home is conveniently located in the Martha Jefferson neighborhood of Charlottesville, just steps from the Martha Jefferson site and Charlottesville’s Downtown Mall.

Check out what The Hook had to say about this gem…

The house itself feels like a dollhouse in the best sense of the word. White, with mustard trim, and a front porch perfect for lemonade and neighbor-watching, this Victorian has stayed true to form. It’s eminently livable— no falling through floorboards or fighting over closet space. Everything has been carefully brought up to the present century while the spirit of the time when men wore hats and women wore bustles has been preserved.

The flooring is all heart pine, the ceilings are high (9’4″ downstairs), and the walls are painted in salmon, peach, and sage. The small, street-facing living room is the most elegant, with crown molding and an antique mirror above an ornate fireplace (unfortunately now blocked with tiles of red marble because it can’t be resuscitated).

And 8 out of 10 stars?  We agree.  It’s a pretty sweet place.
