Description

Unit 9D in the Prestwould (yes, that's the 9th floor and its panoramic views of the City at night are glorious), offers a rare opportunity to live in Richmond's version of an elegant, "doorman style" New York City high-rise. In 1927, Lord Alfred C. Bossom, a well-known English architect, and Richmond, Va transplant, had a vision to bring the sophistication and architectural details of the "Roaring Twenties" to Richmond. You really experience his genius when you enter the elegant grand hall and lust at the elevators that are sheathed in bronze and black walnut wood paneling and up to the minute tasteful "glitz". Added in to the experience is the gorgeous interior garden where your neighbors gather each Tuesday evening! But more than just the looks that have survived the years, the Prestwould still offers on-site staff, security during the evening and weekends, gated and assigned parking, paid water, gas, heat, and door service Mon - Sat. for mail, packages and trash collection. So, what about Unit 9D? She's a lovely lady who's fallen away from her earlier grandeur. If you think about an estate (which it isn't), you'll get a sense of the condition of the unit. Paint, AC, and refinishing the floors will go a LONG WAY to bringing her into our times. Many buyers may also want to re-do the Kitchen (which is fine and has a nice retro vibe), but all of the appliances really need to be replaced ASAP, and new countertops/backsplash would go a long way to bringing it up to date. The half bath needs work and the primary bath could also use some updating. Would you rather create a showplace? The Prestwould absolutely can handle that investment as well! Since work does need to be done, the owner has priced the unit below others in the building. Please feel free to bring your contractors and your vision, but also recognize this will be an as-is sale and the seller will make no repairs. This is a once in a generation opportunity!
