Those 3 luxury homes are at 103 Tally Ho Drive, 106 Reynard Drive, and 103 Cavalier drive.
Perfectly located just outside of the city of Charlottesville on one of the most scenic roads sits Colthurst Farm.
Colthurst Farm offers wonderful views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and nearby hunt country rolling lands. At one time, this was prime fox-hunting land for the Farmington Hunt.

“For all these years Colthurst has been Mary Helen’s love. “We didn’t want to live anywhere else,” she says. It was indeed the perfect setting in which to raise a family and pursue a very full life.
I asked Mary Helen if bringing the hunters back, with their calls of “Tally Ho!” as they galloped across our lawns, would help to ameliorate our current “deer problem”. She and I both agreed to leave that question a moot point.”— Florence Fitzgerald interviewed Mary Helen for the June 1993 Colthurst News.
Note: Colthurst farm is one of the most expensive neighborhoods in Charlottesville VA.
