Welcome to the Martha Jefferson House
Nestled in the heart of Charlottesville, Virginia, the Martha Jefferson House is a senior living community tucked away at the end of a private cul-de-sac surrounded by the robust culture of the University of Virginia. Martha Jefferson House is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that offers Independent Living, Assisted Living, and Long-Term Nursing Care. As a private, boutique community, we are able to approach resident care with a person-centered care plan that recognizes and respects all individuals uniquely.
Join a community rich in history with access to many shops, parks, museums, theaters and the Gordon Avenue Library right outside of our doors. Imagine calling this 1921, stately-brick Georgian-style mansion home, we cannot wait to welcome you!

Over 60 Years of Senior Care in Central Virginia
Founded in 1957 by local philanthropist Hunter Carlyle Perry, the Martha Jefferson House provides for the health, social, and recreational needs of single adults and couples who no longer wish to manage a household and may need support with their activities of daily living. Our community is centered around an elegant 1921 Georgian-style brick mansion and beautifully landscaped grounds. It includes one and two-bedroom apartments in the Perry Wing built in 2008, original suite apartments in Eleanor’s Landing, and suite and studio apartment options in Hunter’s Way, as well as private and semi-private rooms in our Long-Term Care Nursing wing, both built in 1957.
