It's also known as the Villa Maria.
Nearly 13,000 square feet, this historic home was built in the early 1900s and is set on ten acres. It's now owned by a California couple who rescued the estate from the auction block.
Stunning, despite the fact that the grounds need some grooming.
I marveled at the architecture of this part of Virginia, as well as the topography. Like being in a Southern-style rain forest.
But that's the extent of my touristy photos, as I spent the past week helping my son (who is recovering from ACL surgery) settle into in his new mancave. He's just beginning an exciting phase of his life: Graduate school. Specifically he's a student in the doctor of physical therapy program at Lynchburg College, and now preoccupied with 'gross anatomy.'
Or, as I think of it, "Corpses 101."
