Richmond, Va. | $1,299,900
A Colonial Revival house built in 1914, with four bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms, on a 0.1-acre lot
This house was designed by Otis Asbury, the lead architect of Asbury & Whitehurst, a firm that worked extensively in Richmond during the 1910s, with a focus on high-end homes. While the kitchen and bathrooms are new, much of the historic character is intact, including original mantels and mahogany pocket doors.
The neighborhood, known as the Fan District, is popular for its early 20th-century houses and its nightlife. Virginia Commonwealth University is less than half a mile away, and downtown Richmond is a 10-minute drive.
Size: 4,225 square feet
Price per square foot: $308

At the back of the main floor is a kitchen with a Sub-Zero refrigerator and granite countertops. Off the kitchen is a half bathroom, as well as a set of stairs leading to the laundry room in the basement.
