Directly across from Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, this stately Colonial Revival home is being offered as a private residence or a fully furnished Bed & Breakfast. Built in 1922 by Judge William Rhea, US congressman and head of the camp for Confederate Veterans which occupied the grounds of the current VMFA, this 3738 sq ft. home sits on a quarter acre lot, one of the largest residential lots on Grove
Avenue. Designed by Luther Hartsook, architect of the nearby All Saints Reformed Presbyterian Church, the property was built with an astounding 66 windows to ensure that every room was bright and airy.  The beautifully restored home features spacious two-level front porches, four fireplaces, five bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths, a separate guest house with an additional bedroom and full bath, a large kitchen with 6 burner gas stove, an impressive master suite with a sitting room, office, bedroom, and luxurious bath with 2-person steam shower. There is a new commercial gas furnace, new commercial water heater, new roof, 1200 sq ft basement with large laundry, two zone air conditioner, new slate
patio, ample parking for five cars with a large two car garage and three large spaces accessible via an automatic 19’ drive gate. Shaded by beautiful mature oak trees, one of which is a remnant of the original oak grove that Grove Avenue was named for 200 years ago, the professionally landscaped double lot offers the option for future development.  The front and back yards are fully enclosed by custom fencing. Best location! The 2800 and 2900 blocks of Grove feature some of the grandest and most architecturally significant homes in the city. One of the nation’s top art museums is right next door and open 365 days a year. There are countless options for shopping and dining in Carytown just steps away, plus easy access to the interstate, downtown and the campuses of VCU, MCV and UR.  This property is
currently being operated as the highly rated Museum District Bed and Breakfast with an 89% occupancy rate.  Zoning allows a B&B.
