              The historic Landmark Theatre is .5 miles from the house.....check out it's show schedules! I have many travelers stay for historic touring.... Fredericksburg and Charlottesville are about an hour away. Richmond has many yearly Runs where starting and finish lines are walking distance from the house. Many of Richmond's museums are less than a 10 minute drive away. Wonderful dining very close to the house!


              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2003

              About the owner: I am a nurse, living and working in Northern Virginia and have raised 4 children and enjoying 7 grandchildren. I have lived in Virginia all of my life. I became aquainted with Richmond when my daughter attended VCU there.

              Why the Owner Chose Richmond:
              I bought the house so that my daughter, who was attending VCU, could stay there with other students rather than live in the dorm. She loved living there, and so have the other girls who shared the house. It was very roomy and comfortable for them, plus convenient (walking distance) with all of their classes nearby. After she graduated, I continued to rent to students for a few more years. I thought about selling after the last group students left, but I had become very attached to the house...especially it's historic charm and architecture and there is so much to do in Richmond. So, after staying in a VRBO vacation rental myself, I decided to make the Richmond row house a beautiful and homey vacation rental. To begin, I had the interior of the home painted and the upstairs bathroom completely renovated. I also added new furnishings fit for a vacation rental. The walls are decorated with my son's beautiful art work. My family and I hope to continue to enjoy the house while others do too.

              The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
              The house comfortable and spacious and no more than 15 minutes away from ALL Richmond's popular spots! A favorite is visiting Carytown where there are great restaurants, and the historic and beautiful Byrd movie theater, where admission is $2 and an organist plays before the movie on Saturday nights. There are wonderful parks and I especially like Maymont Park, which is sprawling and complete with Nature Center, Gardens, Zoo and Mansion. I recently visited the close by Lewis Ginter Gardens at Christmas time, and it was spectacular! The old architecture all over the city of Richmond is a treat and I love Richmond's Southern friendliness and hospitality.
