On historic Hanover Avenue and only a few blocks from The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts; The Science Museum; highly-rated restaurants plus small neighborhood markets ... think Europe.
Discover the convenience of living in a 3 bedroom historic home. This is the perfect setting situated in Richmond's Fan District filled with stately homes of grandeur. Whether viewing the now-over UCI bike races, visiting the Virginia Museum of Modern Art, or strolling to a neighborhood restaurant, this is the place to call home.
The professionally decorated home is tastefully graced with an array of southern charm. The newly renovated kitchen, with its gas Thermador range, will be a pleasure for any foodie in your group: imported Italian tile back splash with twin 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. In the front parlor is the formal living room with pocket doors leading to the dining room providing seating for eight 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 candelier. 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); Maymont and Byrd Park (park/small zoo/nature museum/historic home to tour; bike and hiking trails); The Museum of the Confederacy; Hollywood Cemetary (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 where the UCI cyclists just completed a grueling course of cobblestones for the Worlds 2015.
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.
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 with the additional amenities of a professional kitchen, elegance throughout the house; and the best neighborhood in Richmond. Long term rentals of one to two months available.
We look forward to seeing you!
I always wanted to live in a historic home (built early 1900's) with high ceilings with sidewalks to walk everywhere and that is what I have! I am a retired IB and AP Biology teacher from Fredericksburg who enjoys traveling, cooking, and reading. In the last 8 years I have taken on an additional role as event planner for wine, beer, and art festivals, and now that I am retired I am pursuing a certificate in the culinary arts. At your request, I will provide professional grocery shopping to stock the fridge as well as prepare menu items (baked goods; entree dishes; casseroles, etc.). Will also arrange restaurant, theatre, museum reservations as well as transportation needs.

A lovely, friendly neighborhood; immaculate, upscale home in a sought-after neighborhood. Accommodates adults only ... and so sorry but no pets (and we love animals --- and children --- but this way our house remains allergy free.)
Will be here upon your arrival and assist in any way. All personal items have been removed from bedroom drawers and closets so you will feel you are in a hotel. Because we want you to feel safe in our home, we ask that you provide us information about you and your guests on a lease to be provided.
Great location, lovely home, and very accommodating host - I gave it four stars because the living spaces are small but that is quite typical of the area and it is an historic home that has been well-tended.
