Described as a "Mediterranean fantasia" in Style Weekly, this Italianate villa, built in 1910, was chosen to be part of Historic Garden Week in Virginia in 2018. Situated on a double lot, the manicured gardens offer a sanctuary for relaxation and reflection. The rental space includes 3 bedrooms with queen beds and 2.5 baths. The master bath was renovated in January 2020. This fully furnished house is ideal for quick getaways and long-term executive and corporate rental.
This 3,000 square foot house has been meticulously renovated over the years to include every modern amenity. You'll have access to three bedrooms, 2.5 full baths, high-speed internet, TVs with cable, a laundry room with a full-size washer and dryer, and private off-street parking (with garage access for long-term stays). The kitchen appliances include a stovetop, double oven, refrigerator, microwave, and two wine fridges. You'll also have access to dishes and utensils, glasses, a coffee and tea bar with a Keurig (and a French press and teapot if you want to get fancy), and a host of cooking implements (toaster, blender, griddle, waffle maker, mini prep, bread maker, ice cream maker, etc.).
The backyard has multiple sitting areas, including a table for four, a chair and sofa area, a daybed, and a small bench in a secluded corner of the garden. The flowering gardens on this rare double lot in the city feature hydrangeas, camellias, peonies, lilacs, irises, tulips, clematis, roses, crape myrtles, plum and cherry trees, and a host of other flowering plants. There's also a vegetable garden run wild, primarily with herbs and tomatoes.
You'll be within walking distance (1 to 1.5 miles) of several restaurants and a coffee shop. You'll also have easy access to downtown Richmond (less than 10 minutes), the Fan (5 minutes), the airport (approximately 20 minutes), and the train station (15 minutes).

The Ginter Park area, named for businessman Major Lewis Ginter, of Richmond is filled with historic homes in a variety of styles. You'll be a block from Union Presbyterian Seminary and its gorgeous Tudor Revival architecture, a five-minute drive (or bike ride) from Bryan Park and its azalea displays and bike and walking trails, and a 10-minute drive from Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens. While you're in the area, check out the biscuits from Early Bird Biscuit Company on Bellevue Avenue.
