NEIGHBORHOOD:

Windsor Farms was the first planned neighborhood in Richmond and was incorporated in 1925. The span of its architectural styles ranges from original Tudors to Georgians, mid-century moderns, and tri-levels but all share in the friendly neighborhood atmosphere. With many shared neighborhood green spaces, the remnants of Civil War breastworks, and the famed Agecroft Hall and the Virginia House in our midst, Windsor Farms has long been thought of as a highly desirable place to live. There is also a spring cocktail party and a fall picnic for all residents.

SPECIAL FEATURES:

The interior of this house has been extensively renovated throughout with new hardwood floors, bathrooms, recessed lights, hardware, chandeliers, carpet, mirrors, all bar and some kitchen appliances, all bathroom and basement and some kitchen cabinetry, as well as custom built-ins on all three floors.

The exterior has been extensively landscaped and terraced, with additions of new irrigation on all four sides, front and back outdoor lighting, a secret garden with fountain, both a trash and recycling house, and a new privacy fence along the west property line.

A highlight of the past year for this property was being showcased on the Windsor Farms Tour during the 2010 Garden Week.
