A National Treasure
“Farmington is a cultural treasure of national and historical importance and has much to teach us,” according to historical architects Mesick, Cohen, Wilson, and Baker. Situated west of the University of Virginia on the border of Charlottesville and Ivy, Farmington homes sit amongst the grounds of a full-service country club that first opened in 1929.
The club grew on the grounds of the Farmington estate, which was patented in 1735. The main house is a structure of historical and architectural significance as, in 1802, Thomas Jefferson himself drew plans for an addition to the house. That addition has been preserved in the current clubhouse and is known to club members as The Jefferson Room.
Special Homes in a Special Place

Estates in Farmington feature homes of national prominence, some surrounded by pristine forest and some with bird’s-eye views of the award-winning golf course. The residences feature many of the finest examples of colonial Virginia architecture anywhere in the commonwealth.
A View that Can’t Be Beat
The club is home to an 18-hole main golf course and the 10-hole East course that is adjoined by a state-of-the-art practice facility. The course is home to the prestigious Kenridge Invitational, a 54-hole tournament with a rich history and many distinguished champions dating back to 1932.
The main lawn boasts unsurpassable views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. It is home to an annual Fourth of July celebration that features one of the biggest fireworks displays in the country.
