Significance: Tudor Grove plantation is located approximately two miles south of Charlottesville, on Old Lynchburg Road. The property is dominated by a large brick plantation house, a central passage structure with two primary rooms on either side of a hallway on each floor. This handsome Georgian house is sturdy and well-built, and its plan, construction technology, and interior moldings date it to the early years of the nineteenth century. Additions have been subsequently added to the rear of the house, and in recent decades, a four-columned, double-storied, pedimented portico has been implemented by the present owner, Ms. Camille Price, who has resided at Tudor Grove for three years. Due to her vigilance, several of the plantation's outbuildings have been preserved. The garden shed is located approximately 75 yards south of the main house.
