Gresham House, Virginia

3501 Seminary Ave., Ginter Park, Richmond, Virginia 23227

Richmond, the capital of Virginia, is among America’s oldest cities. Patrick Henry, a U.S. Founding Father, famously declared “Give me liberty or give me death” at its St. John’s Church, leading to the Revolutionary War. The White House of the Confederacy, the Confederate States Army headquarters during the Civil War, is now a museum in Court End, a neighborhood known for Federal-style mansions.

According to Richmond Bizsense, the property was built in 1906 for granite magnate Thomas Gresham. He co-owned Wise Granite and Construction Co. with Lee Paschall, who lived in the house across the street. Both houses were designed by noted architect D. Wiley Anderson and served to showcase the granite company’s capabilities, according to an article by architect Robert Winthrop.

“The columns, they’re one piece of granite,” Moss said. “It’s incredible that that is one solid piece of granite and not granite molded together. The place is museum quality.”

Description: “Welcome to “Gresham House,” a stately 1906 neoclassical mansion sited on a 1.48 acre corner lot in historic Ginter Park. Designed by renowned architect, D. Wiley Anderson, this one-of-a kind home exudes grandeur with its granite construction magnificent details. With over 8,000 square feet, the main house features 6 bedrooms 4 1/2 baths. The massive, wood-paneled entrance hall leads to an incredible winding staircase, and to the right, a handsome library with original glass-front bookcases a fireplace flanked by leaded-glass palladium windows. Two parlors, a banquet-sized dining room with fireplace, a large tiled conservatory and a gourmet, eat-in kitchen complete the first level. Four bedrooms, an office laundry room are located on the 2nd floor. The third floor features a massive ballroom or billiards room, 2 additional bedrooms and two full baths. The property also includes the original detached carriage house, which has been converted to 4 income-producing apartments. By all standards, this offering represents one of the most notable landmarks in the greater Richmond area.”
