The Fan got the name based on the way the streets all “fan out” from Monroe Park toward the west. It is thought to contain the largest Victorian Neighborhood in the country. Over 2000 rowhouse homes are in the fan, many dating back to the very early 1900’s.
Great examples of the Victorian Architecture can be seen on streets such as Hanover and Grove Avenues. If you are looking for the very top end look no further then Monument Avenue. Monument Avenue is home to some of Richmond’s original mansions.
VCU’s Monroe Campus calls the Fan home and adds a vibrant mix to the RVA.
Just west of the Fan, across Boulevard is the Museum District. Equally impressive architecture along with the Virginia Museum Of Fine Arts makes it a sought after neighborhood.
Both the Fan and Museum District host some of the best restaurants in the RVA along with many local “joints” perfect for a quick bit after work. Carytown, one of Richmond’s premier shopping districts is a short walk from both the Fan and Museum Districts
Carytown hosts a number of unique stores, boutiques, brew pubs and restaurants all along a few block stretch of Cary Street. The home of The Wagner-Ellis Group @ Hometown Realty sits right in the middle of Carytown.
RVA events also play an important part in this area and help get neighbors and visitors out and about. The annual Easter Parade on Monument Avenue is less parade and more about “over the top” hats, man’s best friend and meeting neighbors and friends.
Carytown’s Watermelon Festival is a great opportunity to shop the stores and booths set up on Cary Street, eat fresh watermelon and enjoy a summer’s day. The Monument 10K gets crazy with runners in costumes and spectators cheering the on.
The Fan, Museum District, Carytown and surrounding areas are some of the most sought after areas in Richmond and offer great real estate opportunities as well as a fantastic lifestyle.
