Richmond house description

Lovely Victorian Row Home located in the heart of Richmond's famous and historic Fan District. Our home has been completely renovated and offers our guests every amenity, including a full completely remodeled kitchen with dishwasher, microrange, an upscale gas grill stove top, oven, double stainless steel refrigerator and center island and every cooking utensil you could want or need. Our home has three lovely bedrooms, one of which has a king size bed, another a queen, and a third with a pull out queen. There are two large flat screen TV's and a smaller TV in the kitchen to entertain and/or inform when you are preparing meals. We also have a DVD and an extensive video library. There is a small office upstairs complete with printer and scanner and the house has WIFI. The laundry washer and dryer are in the basement. Other rooms are a large dining room, sitting 8, a living room downstairs with a nice library, along with the kitchen, and a completely redone bath. There is an additional remodeled bathroom upstairs. The home has 4 fireplaces, the one in the living room is gas. There is a front porch for evening and afternoon sitting to view beautiful Meadow Street Park across the street. Their is a small patio area off of the kitchen in the back of our home with a table and 4 chairs for outdoor dining. The Fan is not only historic but fun. It's a great location for walkers, a short walk to the restaurants and shops in Carytown and almost 80 restaurants within walking distance, many of Richmond's best. We are a short walk to all of Richmond's outstanding museums including the Virginina Museum of Fine Arts. Richmond is centrally located to many Civil War sights and battlefields and only an 90 minute drive to the Shennadoah Valley to the west and the beaches at Virginia Beach to the east. We are only a short 45 minute drive to Williamsburg, Virginia and just two hours to Washington DC. The spring in Richmond is fantastic, and the fall is sooooo beautiful.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2010

              About the owner: I am originally from the east coast but have lived out west in California and Arizona for the last 30 years, San Diego, Tucson and Lake Tahoe. My wife, Shirley, and I, when our three children moved away from home, wanted to return to the eastern seaboard and a four seasons climate. In Richmond we have found a wonderful, charming and historic community to do just that. We also wanted to be in an urban setting and in an historic area and Richmond met our requirements on every level. I was a newspaper publisher/owner for the last 22 years and before that a banker.

              Why the Owner Chose Richmond:
              Because of its history and beauty and the charm and character of the 'Fan District' and it's people. Wonderful urban era for walking and enjoying the history and charm of the neighborhood.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We can walk to almost everything. Museums, restaurants, shopping, sporting events. We are also close to the beautiful Shennadoah Valley and Williamsburg and Washington DC.
