  1. Talk about a diamond in the rough (very rough). It seems that more of the millwork is intake – it’s plain and severe as expected. This is surrounded by renovated homes and warehouses that are condos/apartments. Plenty of dining choices and within 5-10 minutes of the downtown. After renovations, this would be worth $750K+. Houses in this area sell for > $300 per sq foot. But it would take serious work and finances to get it to where it needs to be.

    Oh, boy. This house is as sad as that one from a few days ago, that was stripped of its beautiful woodwork-the one with the bat like gargoyles at the bottom of the outside stairs that led from the sidewalk. I always wonder, how does a house like this, get in such a poor shape?
    I wonder what the other half looks like, if it is reno’d/kept up, or if it is also in this kind of state. I hope not. I wish a floorplan of each floor had been included, to get a sense of the layout.
    NOw, the tax abatements. What exactly is that? You’re excused from paying taxes, if you fix this place up, within a certain number of years (because its going to take years!)? If thats what it means, are there certain ways of redoing, and updating this house, that you have to abide by? Such as, no crazy modern sculpture sticking out of the roof, don’t paint the brick neon green? Would the city/county/state make you even adhere to certain colors of paint? I once looked at a house in a historic district. When it would come time to paint the exterior, there were only so many colors the city would let you use, colors that were in vogue at the time the neighborhood was built.

  3. Wow! When I viewed the outside I thought this could be so nice with possibly not a lot of expense..But so sad to see the inside in such derelict conditions…And not as much intact woodwork as I expected but if you have the money …This place could be a beautiful home..

  4. This poor house survived the devastation of Richmond during the Civil War. If for no other reason that should be cause enough to be restored. It’s had a long hard life. Would love to know it’s history.
