Charming Home in Richmond's Northside Neighborhood


     The Northside is a much sought after neighborhood.  Its charming atmosphere, along with the residences' sense of community has always been the top selling points of this area.  I've worked in this neighborhood extensively and know from experience that these homes sell quickly!  A convenient location from downtown, as well as its own nearby shopping and dining, make Richmond's Northside a great place to live!
     Our current listing is a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home with unlimited amounts of charm! This 1920s built home maintains its historical detailing with all of the modern updates of today's homeowner.  A large, shaded lounging porch and Craftsman style front door give this home major curb appeal.  Inside you have hardwood flooring with lots of natural light and an addition that doesn't compromise the original design.  
     One of the draws to Northside are all the beautiful, historic neighborhoods and the streets and sidewalks lined with gorgeous trees.  Ask anyone who lives in the area about the sense of community and they will tell you it’s welcoming and inclusive.  Often times residents talk about outdoor potluck dinners or catching up at the neighborhood dog park.  The entire neighborhood gathers on July 4th to watch the Diamond’s fireworks from the popular vantage point of Brookland Park.
     Along with its friendly residents, there’s local shopping and eating.  MacArthur and Bellevue Avenues are home to many of those shops and restaurants such as Once Upon a Vine, Northside Grille, Rich’s Stitches and The Mill on MacArthur.  The area is also a stone’s throw and minutes away from activities like weekend ballgames, the movie theatre and the Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens.  Nearby is the Pine Camp Cultural Arts and Community Center and the Brookland Park Farmer’s Market.  
     The Northside offers city living with lush beautiful surroundings and without all the noise.  A top-notch school district as well as being minutes from the interstate to ease work commutes makes Richmond’s Northside a much sought-after place to settle.
