SARA’s staff and volunteers want to encourage everyone to play a role in creating a community free from sexual violence by intervening when they witness violence, by speaking out, by educating children about respect and empathy, and by offering help and support to victims. The non-profit agency expects hundreds of local community members to participate. “When we came up with this idea last year, we thought this would be a fun way to show how it will take all community members working together to tackle assault and abuse,” said SARA director, Margaret Mikkelsen. Visitors to the website can view a video of last year’s event showing participants traveling carefully over the mall bricks. If 500 pairs participate in the race, SARA will break the world record for the most participants in a threelegged race. “Breaking the record would be a bonus, but the important thing is to break the silence around this issue,” says SARA Community Outreach Coordinator, Rachel Smith. Registration for this familyfriendly event is now open at 3forall. Registration is $20 per pair, or $10 per person for larger teams. Participants are encouraged

to create an online fundraising page and collect pledges from friends and family. People of all ages and abilities are encouraged to enter. Civic groups, congregations, workplaces and other groups can form larger teams of multiple pairs. Prizes will be awarded for most money raised, most spirit, and biggest team. Prizes have been donated by Ragged Mountain Running Club. Other event sponsors include Virginia National Bank, C-VILLE Weekly, Alakazam Toys, Crutchfield, and the Downtown Business Association.

Antiques In Charlottesville t o B e n e f I t P r e s e r va t I o n v I r g I n I a


ntiques In Charlottesville is returning to town from March 23rd to 25th at the Main Street Arena. Mounted by the respected show management team of Melrose and Johns, the event will directly benefit our community with three days of shopping and more than forty antique exhibitors. Jay N. Melrose, the senior partner at Melrose and Johns, began selling antiques himself in the 1980s and has more than 25 years of experience on the show circuit. “I believe Charlottesville is the ideal venue for an antiques show,” he declares. “It’s steeped in history, has great architecture and is a center of higher education. Antiques enthusiasts in and around Charlottesville are sophisticated and have a hunger to gather knowledge—a huge advantage to the exhibitors who will be visiting in March.” Some enthusiasts love antiques in general, while others become very specific collectors. For example, Beth Davis of Keswick recalls her father giving her mother an antique- reproduction doll that led to Davis and her mother opening a antique-reproduction doll shop in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. “We began learning about antique dolls, attending dolls shows, and buying and selling antique dolls,” she says. “Sometimes we were our own best customers.” She now has an engaging collection of dolls and doll accessories. “Each one has a story, if only they could talk,” she reflects. “Just think, they survived clumsy little girl ‘mothers’ and a hundred years later, they are still beautiful and ready to play with.” Today she enjoys seeking out small doll accessories in antique stores or shows and utilizing a bit of old lace or silk to make a new outfit for a doll. “Mostly,” she concludes, “I think the dolls allow me to hold onto small piece of my childhood.”

Melrose says that antiques shows are perfect venues to explore the market, and to compare quality and prices. Unlike antique auctions, they offer novice collectors an opportunity to build knowledge and learn from experts in their fields. He laments that the number of shows has declined recently, but contends, “This idea that people aren’t collecting any more is nonsense. People have always collected, but what is changing is the type of objects that entice new collectors to begin collecting.” He says that today’s economic climate means that the current antiques market is full of bargains. “This is the time to buy,” he says. Melrose explains that the exhibitors for Antiques in Charlottesville have all been carefully vetted and have agreed to properly identify and totally guarantee their wares. “The dealers are chosen for their reputations and the quality of their merchandise and their honesty must be unassailable.”

Windsor Hill

Albemarle County • Offered for $2,375,000 Windsor Hill Farm is one of the lovely Estates located with in the Southwest Mountain Rural Historic District. Classic Greek Revivalstyle architecture, c. 1848 with brick exterior, wrap around veranda, high ceilings, plater walls, wooden floors, 12-stall barn, 6-room cottage, swimming pool riding ring, paddock fencing. Located 3 miles into Historic Gordonsville and travel 12 miles down scenic byway into Charlottesville. It is time to polish and keep one of the jewels in the Crown of the Southwest Mountains. She is accepting visitors by appointment only. We look forward to your call. Since 1927

She stands there ever so proudly perched on her knoll with an expansive view of the Southwest Mountains. If 160+ years gifts you the Test of Time, then Windsor has earned her keep. Built in 1848 by William Cowherd (of Cowherd Mountain fame), a lovely Country Estate using brick (Jefferson’s preferred building material) when the trend was to build more expensive, showy plantation houses. Windsor’s historical architectural significance is in good company with; East Belmont, Tall Oaks, Cobham Park and Castle Hill. You’ll find her in all of the History Books regarding Albemarle County. Professor Ed Lay provides a detailed description as: “The Home is a five-bay, double-pile Greek Revival-style dwelling with a hipped roof and gableend chimneys.â€? Windsor has been Home to several prominent Virginia families including James Field, Attorney General of Virginia (1877-82). Many structures that survived after 1860 were treated to enlargement and some restoration. Between 1905– 1930, Windsor received a 2-story wood frame addition which brought the kitchen into the Main House. Another 2-story wood structure provided Summer sleeping porches. In 1946, Floyd Elmer Johnson, a leading Restoration Architect and UVA graduate (1934) was commissioned to restore Windsor to her original prominence as initially designed. Since then Windsor has stood strong while one project at a time is addressed to keep her in good standing. Her wonderful wrap-around front porch framed with colossal Ionic columns has been restored and provides a veranda from both the double-parlor Room and the large 51)(, /&5 '#&35Living ,'5)Äż,5 ),5."5Ĺ€,-.5.#'5#(5 lf53,-85gfl8o5,-5) Dining Room. 5)*(5,)&&#(!5&(51#."5-0,&5 The four chimneys are .&35-#./.5.5."5!5) 5#-.),#5 in -.,'-5(5*, good working order for the eight fire),)(-0#&&85Äť5,)*,.35")&-5'/"5#(0-.'(.5 places throughout the Home. *).(.#&5/5.)5&).#)(5(5."5-/,,)/(#(!5 *,)*,.#-85,.5-)#&5 ),5(35!,#/&./,&5(.,*,#-85 Äť,5#-55h5,))'6g5."5")/-5(55g5

While Windsor did make application  ,))'6g5."5)..! (sometime in the 1980’s) to both the Virginia Landmarks Register and the National Register of Historic Places‌. the ball was dropped along the way and she is not yet on the List. Windsor is considered significant architecture in the Southwest Mountain Rural Historic District [Reference:#A5 (2-167)]. The Main Dwelling, the Tenant House, the Carriage House, the Barn and three wood sheds are all categorized as “Contributing Buildingsâ€? to the Historic District. I mention this because there is so much opportunity with regard to this Property. She is a Project with “Good Bonesâ€?‌actually she has more than Good Bones‌ she has the “they don’t build them like that anymore.â€? Windsor Hill is an architect’s dream project as her floor plan remains original with thick brick & plaster walls, high ceilings, crown moldings and wooden floors. A full basement adds many possibilities including a wonderful wine cellar.

18 nization dedicated to saving historic places and to perpetuating and revitalizing Virginia’s cultural, architectural and historic heritage. “It’s the oldest state-wide continuous preservation group in America,” explains Judy Rasmussen, president of the group’s Thomas Jefferson Branch, which covers four counties in the Charlottesville area. The local chapter offers programs, tours and preservation awards. This is only the second year the show will benefit Preservation Virginia. “They say you usually don’t make any money for the first couple years,” Rasmussen continues, “but last year they did make some money. Not a lot, but some.” Funds earned from the show go to the state organization that owns properties as diverse as Jamestowne, the Walter Reed birthplace in Belroi, the Cape Henry Lighthouse in Virginia Beach and other historic places. Rasmussen explains that the moneys will support the promotion of preservation and the maintenance of existing properties. One example is Bacon’s Castle in Surry, which opened earlier this month after being closed for more than a year for much-needed restoration and stabilization work. Built almost 350 years ago, the Castle is the oldest datable brick dwelling in North America and includes the best preserved, largest, and most sophisticated colonial-era garden in North America. For more information, visit “Mary Howard is really the mother of this wonderful event,” Rasmussen concludes. “Well, I don’t know about that,” Mary Howard demurs graciously. “I love antiques and decorative arts and my background is in preservation planning. I go to antique shows often and many these days are for nonprofit organizations. So I thought, Why not Preservation Virginia? Why not here?” Howard was the Director of the Western Region for Preservation Virginia and when she proposed a high-end benefit antique show in Charlottesville, people liked the idea. “We started to organize in May of 2010,” she says. “I approached Jay [Melrose] because he’d done shows here before and he said it would be a perfect fit and a fun thing to do.” The Main Street Arena was chosen for several reasons, Howard explains. “We wanted to bring people to the Downtown Mall with its many restaurants and stores in historic buildings. Adaptive use of these old buildings allows us to keep these historic properties, which in turn let us main-

tain our sense of place. It’s a social anchor to our history and to the history which makes each community distinctly special.” She adds that exhibitors love the venue at the Main Street Arena. “It’s the right sort of space,” she continues, “not huge and not crowded. It’s pretty with nice decorations like backdrops, columns and curtains and also has tables and places to sit.” These venue-loving exhibitors come from Michigan, Kentucky, Alabama, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maine, South Carolina, Ohio and New York City. What would bring an exhibitor all the way from the Big Apple we asked Zane Moss of Zane Moss Antiques on East End Avenue in New York? “We did the show in Charlottesville last year,” he explains. “Virginia has always been a sophisticated area with a long historical tradition in fine quality antiques and we found the people knowledgeable and incredibly interested in antiques.” This year he will be bringing 18th and 19th century English furniture with a wide range of complementary accessories such as paintings, wonderful desk objects and tea caddies. “We’ll have an assortment of extremely fine Black Forest carvings,” he notes, “including a rare large wallhung eagle.” It’s important to have both a good venue and a well-run operation to convince dealers to return year after year but last year—the first year—there was a big glitch, Howard admits ruefully. Not only was it pouring rain, but only one truck at a time was permitted on the bricks of the Mall, so the exhibitors had to wait far too long for their turn to bring in their wares. Problem solved for this year, emphasizes Howard. “We’ve rented electric carts to help dealers move in so we can put their minds at rest. We have wonderful dealers and we want them back.”

Focus On Education The main focus this year will be education, Howard says, starting with the Gala Preview Party on Friday, March 23rd from 6 – 9 p.m. It’s an excellent opportunity to benefit Preservation Virginia while getting

a chance to meet the exhibitors and having the first look at their wares. By reservation only, it is an evening of fine food and wine from a dozen of the area’s top caterers, restaurateurs and vintners. Alphabetically, these are: Barboursville Vineyards, the C&O, Camino, The Catering Outfit, Fellini’s #9 Restaurant, Glorious Foods, Harvest Moon, Horse and Hound Gastropub, Hotcakes, Maya, Mona Lisa Pasta and Sandy Motley Catering. Tickets are $55 per person or $100 per couple. “You can hardly go out to dinner these days for that cost,” Howard notes. Either before or early in the party, the Best-in-Show pieces are selected. “There are usually 10-20 outstanding pieces,” Howard says, “based on rarity and value.” Viewing these prizewinners is always popular with visitors. Saturday morning brings the Walk-Thru with Experts from 9:15 – 10:00 a.m. offering visitors an early chance to view the exhibits.

Furthering the educational program will be Dealer Talks when various exhibitors will give talks at their booths. Specific times, which will be posted on a signboard, and the talks are covered by the general admission. “Our object is to educate the public,” says Howard. “It’s great if you buy antiques, but a lot of people have inherited pieces and don’t know exactly what they have or its value or how it’s made.” She explains that when visitors spot an item similar to one they have at home, exhibitors often can provide general information such as its history and—in the case of one of those mysterious what-is-it objects— its function. “We also will be fortunate to have Wallace Gustler, former curator of Colonial Williamsburg Foundation and an expert in 18th century guns, porcelain and other items,” Howard says. “He not only will be giving a booth talk on Sunday, but he also will give a special lecture on his and his wife Liza’s own collection on Saturday at the Omni Hotel’s Lewis and Clark room.” Another very popular event is Meet the Appraisers, a sort of mini “Road Show” evaluating items visitors bring with them. This is available both Saturday and Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Two independent appraisers, Will Paulsen or Sandra Perry, will provide a verbal Professional Opinion of Value for each item. The curious may purchase tickets at the door of $10 for one item or $25 for three items. It is not necessary to buy a general admission ticket. Paulsen is well known in central Virginia as a collector, appraiser and a University of Virginia instructor. He began collecting when he was young and is still collecting and appraising in areas including furniture, fine art, militaria, manuscripts, letters and documents. Perry is an appraiser for Harlowe-Powell Auction Gallery in Charlottesville, which offers University of Virginia, Jeffersonian, and other historic collectibles and ephemera. She

has been a credentialed appraiser since 1984. “Between my time in New York galleries and here in Charlottesville, just about everything has come through my hands. Our appraisals are the opinions of someone who has been doing this for a long time.” Sometimes, of course, some old thing is just an old thing, but you never know. “People often have no clue what they have,” Perry points out. “It’s come down through the family or they’ve been given it by a friend or it’s part of an estate.” She mentions a woman who came to her with two framed works of art— one a large landscape—a couple years ago which she’d gotten from her parents. “I saw enough of the signature on the bottom of the larger one that I flew to the Internet. I found it was by Samuel Colman, one of the foremost ‘Hudson Valley School’ artists.” When she described it to a New York City dealer over the phone, he drove directly to Charlottesville where he bought it at auction for $40,000. And did Mary Howard, “mother” of Antiques in Charlottesville, buy anything last year? “Oh, yes,” she says with a chuckle. “I bought a sweet painting of ships in a harbor by a woman named [Yvonne] Canu. She was a pointillist painter, probably a friend of Seurat. It’s hung in my hallway.” So whether you are a browser, a novice or a dedicated collector of antiques, be sure to stop by the Main Street Arena for this wonderful benefit Antique Show. You, too, might discover a “sweet painting,” a piece of furniture to make a statement in your home or a perfect one-of-a-kind gift for someone you love.

Terrace The

CAAR Real Estate Weekly | celebrating 20 years 1992-2012

by RobeRt boucheRon

The back porch is part of American folk culture, and the wooden deck was popular in the late 1900s, but neither has the style and durability of a terrace. A transition between house and garden, a terrace allows French doors to open from the living spaces, promotes fresh air and sunlight, and provides an ideal place to entertain. Best of all, a terrace connects directly to the garden, through borders of flowers and shade trees. Designed by a landscape architect or by a supplier like Scott Price at Snow’s Garden Center, or Tim Reese of Bella Terra Landscapes, a terrace may be inseparable from the planting that envelops it. There are plenty of idea books and how-to guides for home gardens and terraces. One that you may not have seen is Gardens for Small Country Houses, by Gertrude Jekyll and Lawrence Weaver. Originally published in 1912 by the British magazine Country Life, this book distills a lifetime of experience by Jekyll (1843-1932), a well-known artist and garden designer. A century later, her ideas are still sound, and her advice is practical. Referring to a terrace as a parterre, she says: “The beds are arranged in such a way that all work on the flowers can

be done from the paved paths. This is useful in the many cases where ladies do not leave pruning, etc. to the gardener, and like to do the work dryshod.” Jekyll and Weaver’s book gives many examples of paving, with suggested materials, patterns, steps, retaining walls, and accessories like statues, sundials and seats. The modern term for these built-in features is “hardscape,” as opposed to soil and plants. The illustrations show mainly rectangular shapes and hard borders,

softened by masses of foliage. Contemporary American design may be full of curves and flowing lines, with ambiguous blending of pavement, grass, herb beds, and water features. Flagstone, brick, and ceramic tile are traditional materials for a terrace. Lay them on a concrete base for maximum stability. Or lay them on a bed of sand or directly on the ground if the soil is firm and level. Stones can be irregularly shaped for a rustic look, or cut to measure for an urbane terrace to match a high-style house. If bare concrete is used, give it a decorative finish like exposed aggregate or careful troweling. Tinted and stamped concrete were popular a few years ago, while shaped concrete pavers are a current option. Bear in mind that all concrete will crack, and that the soil under it must be firmly compacted. The reason for creating a terrace is often to overcome sloping or uneven ground. Stone and brick steps can be a very effective design element, both at the house wall and from the terrace to the garden. Then again, the paved area may step down in more than one level. In any case, it has a slight pitch to allow rainwater to drain. Retaining walls come into play

for the same reason. They should be designed to withstand the weight of earth, and allow groundwater to drain at the bottom. Poor examples that have failed are easy to spot. Plant flowers and shrubs at the edge of a terrace to best enjoy them. Add a pergola to filter direct sun and train vines, and place garden ornaments for effect—urns, vases, statues and boulders. For an Italian or French note, plant flowers and small trees in tubs and pots to move them around, and to raise them closer to eye level. Consider the line of sight of a person seated on the terrace, as well as one looking from inside the house. A railing or balustrade should be low enough to see over. A pool, fountain, or other water feature provides a strong focus for a terrace. A sheet of water reflects sun like a mirror, and it can have a mystical effect of calm. Running water or the splash of a fountain, on the other hand, adds life and gaiety. If you have young children, almost any body of

Is a

Reverse Mortgage for

Reverse mortgages are a special type of federally insured home loan that allows seniors to convert the equity in their home into cash. They can give older Americans greater financial security to supplement social security, meet unexpected medical expenses, make home improvements, and more.

Common MYTHS to a Reverse Mortgage: Lender takes the deed/ title to your home. This is not true!

You need good credit for a reverse mortgage. This is not true!

Reverse mortgage borrowers owe more than their home is worth. This is not true!

Title on a reverse mortgage is no different than any other mortgage you’ve ever had – only the homeowners are on the title.

A reverse mortgage is only based on your home’s equity and the borrower’s age. Income and credit are not qualifying factors.

Reverse mortgages are “non-recourse” loans which means that the borrower can never owe more than the value of the home regardless of loan balance.

There are several ways to receive the proceeds from a reverse mortgage. • Lump sum – a lump sum of cash at closing. • Tenure – equal monthly payments for as long as the homeowner lives in the home. • Term – equal monthly payments for a fixed number of years. • Line of Credit – draw any amount at any time until the line of credit is exhausted. • Any combination of those listed above.

Please feel free to contact me to discuss anytime or schedule to meet in my office or in the privacy of your home. All meetings are absolutely no-obligation and confidential.
