Visitors will not have to venture far from Charlottesville city limits to encounter the unique properties on this year’s Albemarle-Charlottesville tour. There is something to please everyone, from historic estates to restored Gillette gardens to prized modern landscape architecture. An Albemarle Garden Club member originally owned one home on the tour, and her gardens reflect a lifetime of collecting treasured trees, shrubs, and plants. A private modern home seamlessly relates to the landscape and showcases native and non-native specimens in gloriously colorful, expansive borders and beds. And on a grander scale, stately manor homes – one dating back to the mid 19th century and one in the early 20th – capture the essence of refined country living in Central Virginia.
