The professionally decorated home is tastefully graced with an array of southern charm. The newly renovated kitchen, with its gas Thermidor range, will be a pleasure for any foodie in your group: imported Italian tile back splash with accompanying serving table; fully equipped culinary utensils and supplies; four Parson chairs and glass, black wrought-iron table as an eating area. And step into the sun room --- small and intimate --- with its Palladium windows and floral love seat as the outdoors and sun come right in: this is where you're going to rest after a day on the town. Or, if the weather is nice, relax in the wrought-iron chairs with comfortable seating on the private side deck surrounded by brick walls --- the feel of the Mediterranean. In the front parlor of the house is the formal living room with pocket doors leading to the dining room providing seating for ten or more around the banquet table. Brass chandeliers provide the ceiling lighting throughout the house.
Upstairs, the master bedroom and its adjoining bath is in the front of the house. You will enjoy the light coming in through the bay window as well as the newly renovated master bath with Carrera tile and Austrian chandelier. There is also a guest bedroom with a double bed as well as a single bed in the third bedroom. A hall bath with double sink serves both of these two rooms. As with the master bath, there is Carrera marble in the guest bath.
The Fan is a unique place to live. To name a few of the attractions: The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (one of the top ten art museums in the USA with a fine-dining restaurant and a casual cafe --- a MUST ad only 8 walkable blocks away); Maymont (park/small zoo/nature museum/historic home to tour; bike and hiking trails); The Museum of the Confederacy; Hollywood Cemetery (famous U.S. presidents' burial ground); Carytown ( a quaint area for shopping and lovely assortment of restaurants/ice cream/ coffee shops you'll love). A few miles away is the now-made-famous- Libby Hill in another area of Richmond called Churchhill where the UCI cyclists completed a grueling course of cobblestones for the Worlds 2015. St. John's Church is located there .... where Patrick Henry gave his "give me liberty" speech. In the summer they do awesome reenactments.
Restaurants galore: Joe's Inn (only a few blocks away - Italian, inexpensive and the local watering hole; be prepared for a HUGE serving; they also have a to-go service; I suggest the Greek Salad with homemade feta); Cuba Cuba (obviously, Cuban cuisine about 6 blocks away and good coffee); several walkable restaurants on Broad Street. Hop in the car and go to Stella's about a mile away (Greek cuisine but you will need a reservation, often several months in advance if you're going on a weekend); downtown there is Julep's and Comfort; in Church Hill there is The Roosevelt as well as Dutch and Company plus more; in Oregon Hill there is L'opossum (French and somewhat expensive but my favorite) and Mamma Zu which is crazy busy. On the counter in my kitchen is a folder with additional recommendations.
Public bus transportation is available going in the west direction (uptown) at the corner of Hanover and Meadow (three houses away) while bus transportation going downtown is one block over on Grove Avenue. Easy access --- actually within walking distance --- to VCU and an easy drive to the campus of University of Richmond.
Our home is clutter-free as the children are grown and live elsewhere. You will feel as if you are in a high-end hotel all clothes and personal belongings removed from the bedroom closets and drawers. With the additional amenities of a professional kitchen, elegance throughout the house; and the best neighborhood in Richmond, this will be love at first sight.
Discover the beauty of living in a 3 bedroom historic home in the City of Richmond. This is the perfect setting situated in Richmond's Fan District filled with stately homes of grandeur. Whether visiting the Virginia Museum of Modern Art, or strolling to a neighborhood restaurant, or visiting other cities nearby .... this is the place to call home.
