Open the front door to find A POP OF MID-CENTURY MODERN DESIGN.

A surprising brick home in the RUTLEDGE NEIGHBORHOOD OF CHARLOTTESVILLE,  sited on a PRIVATE LOT OF NEARLY 2/3 ACRE within a special area tucked behind Yorktown Rd, a block away from one of the RIVANNA TRAIL's best access points.
This unique home is tucked away off of Yorktown Rd.  The living area is clearly based on a mid-century aesthetic with clean, clear lines.  There is a surprisingly large  eat-in kitchen, which is attached to a fantastic screened porch.  The porch was originally a carport, and the first owner screened it.  Instead of reduce its original function, however, the space has been built to allow a simple return to its original function if desired.
