History

View More History Information Below

In early 2007 a group of local investors passionate about Charlottesville and the University purchased the “Barringer Apartments” and eventually added two former professor’s homes nearby in a newly-designated National Historic District. A multi-year approval process and a thoughtful 18-month renovation with BMC, transformed the properties into today’s hotel, furnished residences, gourmet cafe and coffee bar. Privately owned and managed yet seemingly on the “Grounds” of the University, we offer modern comfort in a rich residential setting at a midpoint between the Rotunda, Hospital, and football stadium.

Overview

Dr. Paul Barringer

Dr. Paul Barringer joined the faculty at the University of Virginia and helped open its first Hospital on Thomas Jefferson’s birthday, April 13th, 1901. Later in life (after serving a term as President of Virginia Tech) Barringer and his family returned to Charlottesville and built the boarding houses at 100 and 102 Oakhurst Circle at a time when there were few dormitories for the growing student body. The buildings continued to serve as student housing until the renovation began in 2012.

These classic Crafstman homes have served as residences for so many individuals who have worked for or attended the University. We love to welcome former residents as returning guests to show them the transforming improvements we have made. From Bobby Kennedy to members of our own staff, we are very proud of the long and prestigious list of Charlottesville citizens who have made Oakhurst Circle one of the premiere residential areas in the city.
