Like the majority of the early 20th century Museum District properties that were influenced by the european city homes common at the time of their construction, 125 S Colonial is a modern scandinavian-inspired home that captures the classic massing and proportions of South Colonial Avenue while offering a refreshingly bright and intuitive living experience.
Notable features include: open air front entrance with integrated planter boxes, a true first floor master suite, a loft office or family room overlooking the 27+ foot tall vaulted living area, an immense two-story wall of windows on the rear of the home and structural glass handrails. Completing the design at both the front entrance and entire rear of the home is natural cedar cladding that softens the stark geometric lines and weight of the property and warmly welcomes you home to this true neomodern masterpiece.
Zach Kennedy | Upward Builders: My passion is in creating unique homes and living spaces that push the boundaries of design by blending modern concepts within the historical landscape of the City. 125 South Colonial seemed like the perfect fit for our architectural style. I wanted a home that worked within the vernacular of the neighborhood but also didn’t look like all the other homes on the street. Clean, simple, straight lines inspire me and and I've always been drawn to the Norwegian aesthetic. On top of that, we tried to incorporate as much glass as we could to energize the space. There are very few row houses in the Richmond area with vaulted living spaces, glass rails and a first floor master... couple that with the proximity to Carytown and we felt this location was perfect for our Scandinavian experiment.
John and Keith | Buyers: We are relocated to Richmond from Manhattan and while we were looking forward to all the benefits of a smaller city, we didn't want to compromise on a walkable lifestyle or a modern designed living space. Initially we were drawn to condos in the downtown area, but after some time out looking we felt that the Fan and Carytown areas had the best amenities for us. Upon taking an initial tour of 125 S Colonial while it was still in the construction phase, we instantly knew this was not only where we wanted to be but that the design and finishes of the home were exactly what we were looking for. It's bright, clean and chic... we couldn't be happier!
