Nesting in Lewis Mountain

Step off the busy thoroughfares near the intersection of Emmet Street (US Route 29) and Ivy Road (State Route 250) and you'll discover narrow roads winding up, down, and around the small hills of Lewis Mountain, a neighborhood of 1930s, 40s, 50s cottages under a lush green canopy. The trees are tall, ivy creeps upon the walls and fences, steps and paths cut the ground in stone. This quiet community feels like a hideaway retreat and belies its proximity to major roads and the Grounds of the University of Virginia. Thomas Jefferson's Rotonda is a ten minute walk away. This is my new neighborhood.
