The Tuscan Villas is a Mediterranean Revival-style building that occupies the entire east side of the 500 block of Arthur Ashe Boulevard. Designed by Bascam Joseph Rowlett, it was completed in 1929, when Mediterranean Revival was near its peak popularity nationally. It's been called the paramount expression of the Mediterranean Revival in Richmond. Stucco walls, a red tile roof, Juliet balconies and a mix of architectural details from various Mediterranean countries are among the building's standout features said architectural historian, Chris Novelli. Tudor casement windows and panels with carved griffins, as well as its rhythm of projecting ells and recessed courtyards are intriguing. Completely renovated kitchen and bath. 3 mini-splits (heat pump), wonderful light and views with no overhead noise.
