Featured on the cover of House Beautiful in 1944, this exquisite French chateau with high-end furnishings and art is a little oasis in the middle of an urban park. A half mile from charming Carytown, Richmond's premiere neighborhood for restaurants and shopping, this unique two-story home with an elegant, circular front staircase has two master suites with king beds, full baths and TVs, and a smaller room with a queen and half bath. The formal living room adjoins the dining room with service for 8 and leads to a fully-stocked kitchen, breakfast nook that seats 4 and a back staircase to the second-floor den with TV. From the kitchen you may access the back patio with dipping pool, a kitchen herb garden and a dining area. The classical side garden designed by George Gillette is perfect for a game of bocce. From here, you can walk or bike to downtown or hop on the Buttermilk Trail along the James River to Belle Isle, Brown's Island and the TPott bridge. Or go the other way, to Carytown for lunch and a stop at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts or the adjacent Virginia Historical Society. The Science Museum and Children's Museum are a 10 minute walk from there. PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT a party house and may not be used for weddings, showers, birthday parties or other such events. Due to neighborhood concerns, gatherings must be confined to 10 people or fewer.
