About 7539 Riverside Drive

This finely detailed Colonial Revival-style ranch house combines 18th-century elegance with mid-century ranch house design. Situated on two-and-a-half acres on a high bluff, this architect-designed home offers magnificent views of the James River and the surrounding countryside. The house’s abundant colonial features capture the charm and elegance of the 18th century, while its updated amenities and expanded living areas make it ideal for today’s living. The exterior is mostly constructed of red brick laid in Flemish bond. The main entrance is reached by a brick walkway laid in a basketweave pattern and features a single-leaf door opening with a substantial carved wood surround. The front of the house features four gabled dormers with six-over-six windows. The design of the back is less formal than the front, with the main emphasis being to provide views of the river from inside. A spacious brick-paved terrace helps to unify the design and provides a transition from the building to the landscape. The house features a hall-salon plan comprising a central entrance hall which leads to a large formal living room overlooking the James River. The bedroom wing of the home extends to the north, and the dining room, family room, kitchen, and garage are located to the south. The paneled sliding pocket doors between some of the formal rooms are an amenity not found in most ranch houses. Oak floors enhance the first-floor rooms. The south end of the house has been modernized and expanded to feature a spacious kitchen, a glass-enclosed sunroom overlooking the river, and a two-car garage. Seven bedrooms and six full baths, including first & second floor primary suite options as well as first and second floor laundry options. Abundant natural light & heavy moldings throughout. Views from every vantage point. Unfinished walk-out basement. Walk-in attic storage. Paved circular drive. Too many details to list...TRULY ONE-OF-A-KIND!!! MUST SEE!!!
