This Free Classic, two-story brick mansion was built in 1901 by Elwood McGuire, a Richmond entrepreneur best known for pioneering production of affordable lightweight lawn mowers, McGuire expressed his success and wealth in this spacious home designed by local architect Stephen O. Yates with an eye-grabbing turret and impressive front porch.
This amazing home has painstakingly been brought back to its historic glory, featuring craftsmanship of a time gone by, including zebra inlay flooring with several different designs and patterns. The property includes a breathtaking entry with seating room featuring curved glass windows and lovely mantled fireplace. The first level also includes spacious dining and family rooms, again with curved glass windows, lovely modern kitchen, 1 powder room and full bath.
Heading upstairs from either the rear or front staircases, you’ll find two large suites, a large guest room with ornate fireplace and its own powder room. The summer sleeping room off the one master is surrounded by windows which all open, and also features a lovely soaking tub and an exposed brick wall. The fourth bedroom has been converted into a California Closet, but could easily be restored and then you would have a shared full bath with the other suite.
