This one-of-a-kind Greek Revival home was built in 1862 and beautifully restored in 2021. Considered one of the gems of Church Hill's St. John's Church Historic District, the “Ainslie House” was home to George Ainslie, the mayor of Richmond from 1912-1924. A perfect combination of historic charm and modern opulence, this grand house features an array of exceptional architectural elements including a fluted ionic column entryway, two-tiered balcony, 12 ft ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, original marble mantels and hardwood floors. This corner lot also features a huge walled backyard that looks out on a cobblestone street. The main house offers 3 BRs, 3.5 baths, a gourmet kitchen and light-filled English basement. Through the brick patio, you will find the home's private garden house which offers 2 additional bedrooms, 1 full bath, kitchen and laundry making it the ideal guest/mother-in-law suite or rental opportunity. All this just steps from Church Hill’s famous restaurants, walking parks and of course the James River. Don’t miss this rare chance to own one of the neighborhood’s most elegant historic homes.
