Historic Italianate Villa and Gardens in Northside/ginter Park - Pet Friendly

Family-friendly villa in Richmond
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).

Events are not permitted without host permission. Please note that additional fees may be associated with events.

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. For great coffee shop, stop in Stir Crazy on MacArthur Ave. One of the best dives, profiled by Guy Fieri, is Dot's Back Inn, also on MacArthur.
Rooms open to patios. Bathrooms include shower/tub combinations.

5/5 Excellent

The best!
Kristin and her home were both wonderful. The house and yard looked just like the beautiful photos and Kristin responded immediately with our minimal issues. (We couldn’t get the moon lock to work one time-user issue, I think!) Due to rain coming the day her yard caretaker usually comes, Kristin had them come a day early to tidy things up before we arrived. We had a lovely weekend celebrating our daughter’s college graduation at her charming home.

5/5 Excellent

Lived up to expectations

5/5 Excellent

Great Stay in Ginter Park!
We had a wonderful three-month stay in this lovely home in Ginter Park. In fact, we would stay longer if we could. The home is spacious and inviting, the neighborhood friendly, and the location convenient. Kristen is super responsive when needed.

5/5 Excellent

Wonderful home to stay at during our daughters wedding weekend!
We hosted family meals at this wonderful home. There was a very well socked kitchen with all the tools we need to prepare dinners for our out off town guests. We were able to enjoy the beautiful yard too. We had a couple of issues with one of the toilets but it was resolved.
