Silver Thatch Inn has a long and distinguished history as a Virginia inn and, especially, a Charlottesville inn. With seven lovely guest rooms this Charlottesville VA inn for sale has much to boast, and much opportunity to offer!
Significantly, Silver Thatch is a member of Select Registry. The oldest section of Silver Thatch Inn dates to 1780 with a log structure built by Hessian soldiers after the Revolutionary War. In 1812, a wing was added to serve as a boys' school until 1860. From 1937 until 1984, it was the home of the University of Virginia's Dean of Men. Then in 1985, the property was turned into one of the area's first inns, offering fine dining on a level not found elsewhere in the area. Today, the inn sits on just over an acre of commercially zoned land in Hollymead, about 7 miles north of Charlottesville, and a couple of miles from the Charlottesville Albemarle Regional Airport along the busy Route 29 North corridor.
Until 2013, Silver Thatch was a full service inn. However, after several years, the owners for the past 15 years decided to simplify their lives and run the inn as a Bed & Breakfast. With seating for around 60 diners in four rooms, plus a wonderful, intimate English style pub, a new owner could reopen the restaurant with their own format! There is room for meetings too, as dining rooms can be converted to accommodate groups in a variety of configurations. Special events are a natural fit for this property, and the grounds are very suitable for weddings. Possibly, this is one of the inn's most promising opportunities for future development.
One of the best features of Silver Thatch Inn is the three bedroom, two bath, two story, residence with a detached garage just steps from the inn, making it possible to enjoy a comfortable, private home life at the inn when needed!
Silver Thatch Inn is offered exclusively by The B&B Team, Inc. for the price of $1,100,000. For details, please contact Peter Scherman, 434-286-4600.
