Edge Hill, also known as Edgehill and Edgehill Farm, is a historic home located near Shadwell in Albemarle County, Virginia, USA. It was built in 1828, and is a two-story, brick structure. It was rebuilt in 1916, after a fire gutted the interior. The house was built by Thomas Jefferson Randolph, grandson of Thomas Jefferson and executor of his estate. Also on the property is a one-story, wood frame structure, built as the original Edgehill residence about 1799, but later used as a school and office.[3]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.[1]
