1 W Main stands as one of the finest Greek Revival mansions in all of Virginia. Once the home of Pulitzer Prize winning author Ellen Glasgow, this National Historic Landmark property masterfully blends old world craftsmanship and detail that cannot be replicated today with a premium downtown location that provides access to modern and bustling downtown Richmond. Historian Mary Wingfield Scott was stirred to write about this home in “Houses of Old Richmond” that “The house is in the most perfect condition of any of the remaining Greek Revival mansions.” and “The Doric columns of the entrance are considerably heavier than those of the Barret, Clarke or Bransford houses. The Glasgow mansion gives an impression of solid dignity” With ample room for a family of any size and zoning that allows a wide variety of live-work options, this home is perfectly suited for today’s busy life while offering a serenity only found in a historic home that is best enjoyed sitting on the porticoed read porch overlooking the walled rear courtyard. Having the opportunity and privilege of owning this property is a once in a lifetime opportunity and it must be seen in person to be appreciated!
