NEWS & VIEWS

Recently Habitat for Humanity of Greater Charlottesville celebrated two families purchasing affordable homes on 12th Street NW. The dedication ceremony honored the partner families’ completion of Habitat’s Homeownership Program including homebuyer education, financial counseling, and hundreds of hours of sweat equity in preparation for the purchase of their new Habitat homes. Both Anderson and Jackson, the two mothers purchasing the Habitat homes, are graduates of Habitat’s Pathways to Housing Program. Families in the Pathways program often struggle with debt, credit issues, and low wages, but have the drive and potential to achieve their goals. Through one-onone financial coaching, homeowner education classes, and monthly group meetings with their cohort, Pathways to Housing families work diligently toward graduation. Upon graduation, families are able to purchase a home through Habitat or, if they choose and qualify, on the private market. “The Pathways program helps partner families find innovative, creative solutions to their specific financial and housing challenges. We work with low-wealth and debt-burdened families to help them achieve economic stabil-

ity and self-sufficiency and put them on the path to homeownership—be it Habitat homeownership or otherwise,” says Janette Kawachi, Habitat’s Chief Partnership Officer. By investing in families that otherwise would not qualify for homeownership, Habitat is committed to providing wealth building opportunities for Charlottesville families who have no other pathway to home equity. In areas of town that are facing the pressures of gentrification, like the 10th and Page neighborhood, Habitat focuses on families from the neighborhood and the Charlottesville community to allow them to move up without moving out. “These homes and the work of these wonderful families demonstrates that you can reinvest in neighborhoods without displacing the people and the bonds that make communities great,” said Dan Rosensweig, Habitat’s CEO and President. About Habitat: Habitat for Humanity of Greater Charlottesville brings people together to build and rebuild homes and communities while catalyzing new pathways to safe, decent affordable housing. Our work has evolved from building one house at a time to developing vibrant, sustainable, mixed-income communities, where local families can achieve their dreams of homeownership. Since our founding in 1991, we have built 225 new homes and safely housed 2,000 neighbors, thanks to the commitment and dedication of our thousands of volunteers and supporters.

Pantops:

Close-In with Views, Shopping and More

t rises directly east of Charlottesville, right across the Rivanna River, once a major trading route. Thomas Jefferson’s family once owned the land, and he coined the name, incorporating the Greek prefix “pan” (all) to allude to the panoptic view from the top. But you don’t need to stand on TJ’s own patch of Pantops for a heartlifting view. Just drive down Route 250 heading into town—and “down” is the direction you’ll be heading—and you’re bound to smile at the beautiful sight of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Now imagine doing that every day as you go to or from work. Imagine you lived on Pantops. You’d have fast access to Route 64 and points east and west. You’d have shops, restaurants, and medical facilities aplenty to choose from, and you’d have the Thomas Jefferson Center for the Protection of Free Speech and the Kluge-Ruhe Art Museum for classy institutional neighbors. You’d likely have pool privileges.

BY KEN WILSON

“The location seems to really resonate with homebuyers,” says Simone Alley of Howard Hannah Real Estate Services. “I would say that that’s the key: the sheer convenience of being close to everything, and the ease of getting to the interstate and of getting to the downtown area. A lot of folks love the fact that Darden Towe Park is there; and new restaurants have been coming in.”

Good Eats Let’s talk about the restaurants first! Pizza, Mexican food, “anything you’d want in that area” you can find, Alley says. “That’s been very attractive for a lot of families.” She loves the new, locally-sourced burgers, pizza, and more American fare place called Riverbirch, owned and operated by Charlottesville transplants Joan and Kenny Mady, and named after the sturdy riverbirch tree. A comfortablysized, popular and locally owned Grit Coffee serves java, espresso, tea and baked goods. Tropical Smoothie offers wraps, sandwiches, flatbreads and salads along with dozens of smoothie options. Sticks

Kabob Shop has Mediterranean skewers. The Lazy Parrot “is always packed after work,” probably because “they have great wings.” Half the fun in getting to know a region’s cuisine is reading the enticingly named dishes on the menu. At Mi Casita Salvadorian Restaurant, open early to late, are Salvadoran-Honduran breakfasts, pupusas, baleadas, Carne Asada, Pollo con Tajadas, and Yuca con Chicharron. Shadwell’s, an old Pantops standby, serves fresh and creative Southern comfort food—fried oyster burgers! Pimento cheesesteak eggrolls!—plus beer, wine, cocktails. Another beloved Pantops eatery is Tip Top Restaurant, a lovely diner—check out the old-fashioned blackand-white checked tile floor and service counter in the front room—serving breakfast all day, plus subs, pasta, pizza, pitas and other Greek specialties, and much (much, much) more. But the oldest restaurant around, established in 1935, back when a workingman didn’t mess around with hummus and would have eyed smoothies with disdain and

suspicion, is Riverside Lunch, still by many accounts the best greasy burgers and fries joint in the city.

Easy Shopping, Easy Getting Around The main Pantops artery, Route 250 (Richmond Road), scoots right into Charlottesville heading west, with exits onto East High Street, McIntire Road, and Route 29 North among others. Charlottesville Area Transit buses run to, through and from Pantops via several routes, making for quick trips downtown. Pantops is also close to Charlottesville’s Amtrak and Greyhound stations, and is only 11 miles from CharlottesvilleAlbemarle Airport, with connections to Atlanta, Charlotte, Chicago, New York City, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C. It is a convenient place to shop as well. Pantops Shopping Center has over 30 retail stores, professional service providers, and restaurants—from Food Lion, H&R Block, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Jiffy Lube, and Rudy’s Cleaners to Mountain Kim Martial Arts Academy, Animal Medical Center, and Pantops Pet Salon.


Unlike many other desirable spots, Pantops has fantastic medical facilities. Award-winning Sentara Martha Jefferson Hospital’s website lists services literally from A to Z, including cancer, maternity, imaging, weight loss surgery, heart and vascular, orthopedics, and home care. An outpatient center serves cancer patients. What’s more, the facilities are attractive and inviting, with art on the walls and lovely country views out the windows. UVA Health’s Primary and Specialty Care Clinic on the lushly landscaped Peter Jefferson Parkway offers a wide range of services. These include treatment of acute and chronic illness; health promotion and prevention of illness; wellness visits for adults and children; women’s health services, including prenatal care; assessments and lab tests; acupuncture; mindfulness-based stress reduction; medical yoga therapy; and cancer survivor support.

cases before the U.S. Supreme Court and sometimes lower federal courts. The Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection is the only museum outside of Australia dedicated to the exhibition and study of Indigenous Australian art. The museum comprises five galleries, an interactive activity space, a library, a classroom, five offices and three art storage facilities, all on the ground floor and basement of a lovely, colonial revival style house completed in 1938.

Pantops Area Real Estate Most Pantops homes—single-family detached homes, townhouses and apartments with Colonial architectural features—are located on and around Richmond Road/250. Many enjoy panoramic views of the Rivanna River or Pantops Mountain. “I’m seeing more young families coming into that area,” Alley says, noting its “immense amount of condos.” The

relatively new Pavilions at Pantops development includes modern row houses and townhomes with large lawns. One of the oldest developments in the area is Fontana, with its 160 existing homes and an additional 34 still to be built. Located on Route 20, a half a mile north of its intersection with Route 250, Fontana enjoys views of Darden Towe Park, the Blue Ridge Mountains, and Monticello, along with Browns Mountain, and the Carter’s Mountain range to the south. The Hyland Park section of Fontana features quarter-acre elevated home sites. “I’ve had several clients in Hyland Park at Fontana. I had some older clients go in there because they really liked the proximity to Martha Jefferson but were able to buy a house with mostly one-level living. They really liked the way it was laid out, sort of tucked away back there. On rolling terrain behind Fontana is Hyland Ridge, where each home sits on roughly half an acre. Homeowners in all these neighborhoods enjoy amenities like a clubhouse, exercise room, pool, trails, basketball and tennis courts, and a playground. “There are so many entrances to the Rivanna Trail in that area,” Alley says. Another booming community, Cascadia, a mixture of attached and detached homes, is right across from Darden Towe Park. “Cascadia had three developers,” Alley says, “Ryan Homes, Southern, and Craig Builders, and it built out quickly. In addition to retirees and second home owners, “quite a few families settle there because they find they can be in Albemarle County but still close to town. They like the schools, and they like the convenience to anything you need—groceries, shopping, hospitals, doctors, parks. There is walkability back there, especially with the park. The river is there so you can kayak and canoe, and then there is the Rivanna Trail. “I had another couple who were retirees who bought in Cascadia (as well) to be close to the younger family they had in the area. So, proximity again, but the proximity to the hospital was important to them as well.” Retirees can also choose from several handsome appointed retirement communities on Pantops, including Westminster Canterbury and Commonwealth Senior Living. One of the oldest and most established communities in the area, Key West, is close by Pantops, Alley notes: “It’s a really cool community. Everything is different there. You have a lot of space around you—most lots are half an acre. In fact, Key West is a mere mile or so from Pantops, just off lovely Route 20, which runs through Albemarle County countryside. Community members love to gather at the Key West Club for swimming, tennis, and social activities. The homes there enjoy privacy, are surrounded by trees, and are close to Rivanna River walking paths. Views and chews, and stores, banks, and all the rest that help grow a community—Pantops boasts them all, and more keep coming—and so do the people. Look around. You might want to join them.

FEATURE

Pantops homeowners are also close to lovely Darden Towe Memorial Park, with its playgrounds, dog run, ball fields, and canoeing facilities. This 113-acre space, open from 7:00 a.m. to dark all year round, holds one Little League baseball field, three softball fields, four multi-purpose fields, four tennis courts, horseshoe pits, a grass volleyball court, and 3.8 miles of trails. A boat launch affords access to the Rivanna River, and a one-acre dog park is fenced in so that dogs can run free. The playground is wheelchair-accessible, and the picnic shelters are reservable and have electrical outlets and open charcoal grills. The park is also home to the Lewis & Clark Exploratory Center, a hands-on center focusing on the historic expedition led by Meriwether Lewis from 1804 to 1806, which educates visitors about history, exploration, transportation, the arts, science, the natural environment, and native cultures. “We acknowledge the Monacan Nation,” the Center’s mission statement says, “who lived on the land where the Lewis & Clark Exploratory Center now stands. We also seek to listen to native peoples about the Lewis and Clark Expedition and its impact, as we travel along the trail of the Expedition often hosted by tribes of the areas, learning more to convey to our visitors in Charlottesville.” Currently the Lewis & Clark Exploratory Center is offering both virtual and on-site programs. Carpentry, photography, and other arts and crafts projects for kids and adults center on the explorer’s own maps, drawings, and written accounts. Completed projects are put on exhibition and have included boatbuilding and 3-D mapmaking. The socially-distanced “Introduction to Nature Journaling and a Hike” teaches the art of keeping a journal, while focusing on Lewis and Clark’s own writings and what Thomas Jefferson hoped to learn when he commissioned their expedition. All ages are welcome. Not much further away, off East Rio Road on Pen Park Road is Pen Park. At

280 acres it is the largest park in the City of Charlottesville. Named more than 200 years ago, its excellent recreation and leisure facilities include the 18-hole Meadowcreek Golf Course with clubhouse and pro shop, and an outdoor physical fitness course with 10 exercise stations along a nature trail winding toward the Rivanna River. At its end is another 1.5-mile trail along the Rivanna River. Leashed dogs are allowed in the park, but not on the golf course. Today the University of Virginia owns a portion of the land that once belonged to the Jefferson family and is home to two institutions that would be a credit to any area. Founded in 1990 and previously directed by Robert M. O’Neil, a former president of the University of Virginia, the Thomas Jefferson Center for the Protection of Free Expression is a nonprofit organization that regularly files amicus briefs in First Amendment

This detects smoke.

We detect smokescreens.

Housing discrimination isn’t always obvious.

These are the kinds of smokescreens you might run into:

“Sorry, we’ve changed our minds about selling.”

“We just rented that apartment.”

“It doesn’t look like you qualify for the loan.”

If you believe you may be a victim of housing discrimination, contact HUD or your local Fair Housing Center:

Your Choice. Your Right. Your Home. A public service message from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development in partnership with the National Fair Housing Alliance. The federal Fair Housing Act prohibits discrimination because of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, familial status or disability. For more information, visit www.hud.gov/fairhousing.
