Right in the center of the Richmond sits a lovely, impeccably kept Arts and Crafts home with an air of farmhouse charm, even though it is decidedly in the city. The charm begins right at the front door, where a wooden staircase leads to the upper level and a wood-paneled glass sliding door leads into the living room. Although the entire house is appealing, one of its most compelling features is its price: the ask is just $1.495 million for three bedrooms and 2,050 square feet of space. The only real downside seems to be that there are just one and a half bathrooms. However, it last sold for $1.275 million in 2008, so we bet the owners are hoping for more than the ask.
In the living room, a big brick fireplace is surrounded by built-in shelving and another sliding wood-and-glass door leads to the kitchen. A vintage Wedgewood stove and farmhouse sink make the kitchen feel like it is from another era, although the stainless steel refrigerator brings it back to the modern age. In the basement, a wood-paneled bonus room with a bar is a bit more 1970s. The backyard is sizable and tree-lined, and there is parking for one car in the garage. Any bets on how high over asking this one will bring in?
