We wish we knew who to give credit to for the design of this gorgeous restored brick townhouse in Richmond, Virginia. It’s everything you’d want in a restored house in the middle of a southern city – especially one that values history as much as Richmond does. We love it and we think you will too – let’s start the tour!
The main living area is framed by painted brick walls on both sides. Painting the brick was a great idea that lightens up room, and frankly, is classier than the exposed red brick you often see in old townhomes. Exposing the floor joists and underside of the floor boards overhead adds a ton of character and texture, too.
Here’s another view showing the dining room, and the custom stair railing – a nice modern touch.
Built in cabinets and a restored fireplace make a cozy living room! And making the stairs open preserves the long views through the restored brick townhouse.
At the other end of the first floor is this spectacular gourmet kitchen. We love the ceiling – there’s a painted steel beam in the center, some cool light fixtures, and a painted board ceiling. And what is that gorgeous island all about? The blue stain and the zinc countertop hammered over the edge is the perfect counterpoint to the cabinets and countertops along the walls. How they got thatA subway tile backsplash echoes the pattern of the exposed brick.
Upstairs is a wonderful master bathroom painted a very modern dark gray. In the master bath, the subway tile continues the “exposed brick” theme.
That cool modern stair ends up down here, where there’s another bedroom and this…funky…green media room and bar.
And all of that spectacular restored brick townhouse is tucked behind this unassuming facade!
