1023 Park AVE Richmond, VA 23220
Elegance in The Fan a Spectacular Renovation
1023 Park Avenue is stunning … a monument to expert construction, an owner’s eye for its classic details and a desire to renovate this 1911 home to its original condition and style while at the same time, creating a home of warmth and comfort, filled with every modern convenience for today’s lifestyle.
The owners began their renovation on a small scale, but upon finding extreme structural and termite damage, they elected to do a total rebuilding and design of the home. A complete demolition was done … walls were torn down leaving only the façade and side wall. Under the guidance of the owner, a Commercial Designer/Contractor, the floor plan became more open for today’s lifestyle and incorporated the feel of a coastal vacation home. 1023 Park Avenue maintains the integrity of it’s classic design … its mouldings, its fixtures, the mantels. The Chef’s kitchen/family room is a wonderful surprise … open, bright and perfect for casual living. The French doors open onto unique outside living spaces and carriage house easily converted to a summer house for entertaining.
The design of the front gardens were influenced by those in Charleston and beautifully landscaped accordingly … with a cupid fountain focus.
The extensive renovation was part of the City of Richmond’s Real Estate Tax Credit Program and has a credit of approximately $4,500 per year until 2015, then declining each year until 2018. At settlement, the seller will provide all records and documentation to the new owner.
The house has been featured in the Fall 2011 edition of Kitchens: The Smart Approach to Design by Creative Homeowners, the Chef kitchen was featured in the Better Homes & Gardens December 2011 issue of Kitchen and Bath Magazine, the master spa bath was featured in the February 2012 issue of Kitchen and Bath
Magazine, and as recent as the 2012 August/September issue of Boomer Magazine … the home was described as “Drop Dead Gorgeous” in its six-page spread.
The owners have generously opened their home for the 2010 Fan’s Women’s Club Tour and The Fan District Association December 2011 Holiday Tour. These tours raise money for each association.
