Fan District Tour Wednesday, May 1 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

The Fan District in Richmond is the largest Victorian residential neighborhood in the country consisting of middle to late 19th and early 20th century homes. The eastern border is Monroe Park which is five sided. The roads emanate from that location “fanning” out, resulting in more roads and creating small triangular parks. Park Avenue is one of these beautiful thoroughfares, featuring many different styles of townhomes built for the rapidly expanding populace of Richmond city in the early 1900s. With its easy accessibility to modern conveniences such as paved roads, sidewalks, water, sewer and gas, it was the fashionable destination for affluent families of the time. Tour headquarters St. James’s Episcopal Church’s Michaux House, 1133 W. Franklin St., Richmond, VA 23220. Tickets Tickets are $45 in advance, $50 the day of the tour, or $120 for a three-day pass for all Richmond tours (three-day pass only available at vagardenweek.org).

hen Clement Lathrop commissioned architect Otis Ashbury to build him a house in 1916, he probably intended to live in the house for more than four years. But after his daughter was hit by a horse and buggy while playing in the street, Lathrop decided to move his family to the country, where she’d be safer. In 1920, that meant moving to the Byrd Park area. Current owner Jeff Drummond first went inside the Lathrops’ former house after a contractor friend insisted he needed to see it, despite major water damage from a broken pipe having badly damaged it. He walked in, saw the flowing three-floor staircase and was smitten. “I fell in love with the house in two minutes,” he admits. His partner, Kim Faulkner, felt otherwise. “Absolutely not,” she says of house love at first sight. “There was a place on the second floor where you could see all the way to the basement. It was scary.” It took a year and a half of the couple living on the third floor – without a kitchen – to renovate. Along the way, they discovered all kinds of fascinating details and facts about their new home. The tall cabinet that now flanks the bar and provides storage was originally a gun cabinet. A former resident warned them that the house was haunted with a ghost who would unplug appliances, but only on the second floor. The linen closet has a false bottom where Robert T. Barton Jr. of the law firm Christian and Barton, the house’s owner from 1931-1942, kept the Mason jars of bootleg whiskey that someone brought him every Saturday during Prohibition. And legend has it that Admiral Byrd, the pioneer aviator and polar explorer, stayed in the big front room every time he visited Richmond.

he last time this 1931 Georgian-styled house was part of Historic Garden Week, it was 1971 and then, like now, the maid’s bell in the dining room was operational. The call button in the dining room is concealed under the carpet just in front of the chair where the lady of the house sits. Others were activated from the front door, back door, front parlor and master bedroom. The bells that alerted the staff to her beck and call still hang on a panel over a door in the kitchen. “The bell system and the Palladian window over the staircase are what sold me on this house,” says owner Laura Hicks of the home she and her husband Charles bought in October 2015. An original niche in the hallway boasts an original 1930s-style phone – the type where you hold the earpiece and speak into the phone – installed there to replace the 1970s-era wall mount model. The house never had radiators and was one of the first in the area to have central heat. Hicks recalls being told that the old furnace could burn three gallons of oil an hour and took up two-thirds of the basement. When they had the old furnace replaced, she suddenly gained a basement. The combination of the curved staircase and a desire for a first-floor powder room resulted in what Hicks laughingly refers to as a “tiger trap.” In order not to compromise on the powder room’s ceiling height, it was designed with three elegant steps leading down into the bathroom. “We liked that a lot when we first saw this room,” she admits. The room’s tile is original to the house. Next to the front door is mounted a vintage Dictograph Security System panel, which was inadvertently tripped by one of the workers during the renovation. “Who knew it still worked?” laughs Hicks.

Historic Garden Week

t doesn’t get much more Richmond than the way that Eric and Vicki White met. He was in law school, she was in graduate school and they both paid the rent working at Strawberry Street Café, he as a cook and she as a server. But when they moved into their home in 2009, it was meeting another woman that dramatically changed the look of their house. Gallery owner Bev Reynolds helped the Whites begin collecting the work of contemporary artists with strong Richmond connections. Walk into their home and you may feel like you’re in a 20th century art gallery, with a strong emphasis on Virginia Commonwealth University connections. The first work they fell in love with was by artist Tara Donovan, who went on to win a MacArthur genius grant. Her large-scale piece now hangs in the White’s entry hall, a sunny, spacious room originally designed as a sunroom with the original black and white floor. But walking through the house reveals work by familiar names, many of them former VCU faculty members, in every room: Theresa Pollak, Richard Carlyon, Jack Wax and Richard Roth among them. “We both have always had a strong appreciation for art,” Eric says. “Meeting Bev gave us the opportunity to further appreciate making it a meaningful part of the house.” When it came time to seek out the perfect dining room table, the couple had some idea of what they wanted in the center of the blackwalled dining room, although Vicki was certain she wanted a round table while Eric wasn’t so sure. Robert Rentz, the interior designer who’d done much of their house, referred them to furniture-maker Ronnie Puckett, who produced a round table with leaves that extend to seat 12 or 13 people, along with two handsome sideboards. The gracefully organic metalwork on the front of the house and above the brick wall in the backyard was created by artist Tom Chenoweth, another VCU alum.

Westhampton Tour Thursday, May 2 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

In the late 1800s Westhampton served as the last stop on the line from the City of Richmond on the nation’s first trolley system, becoming a summer retreat for many people in the area. St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, St. Catherine’s School, St. Christopher’s School and the Country Club of Virginia attracted many families to the neighborhood and soon Westhampton was developed beyond just summer cottages and farmhouses. This tour tells the history of the area by showcasing a variety of private homes of different ages. An original summer cottage on Cary Street Road, a farmhouse on York Road and several homes on historic Three Chopt Road including an early 1920s country estate will be open. Tour headquarters The Country Club of Virginia (CCV), 6031 St. Andrews Lane, Richmond, VA 23226. Tickets Tickets are $45 in advance, $50 the day of the tour, or $120 for a three-day pass for all Richmond tours (3-day pass only available at vagardenweek.org).

Anne and Jeffrey Lamb, owners

hen you’re only the sixth owner of a 1916 house, a treasure trove of artifacts is bound to come with the house. Included with the one Anne and Jeff Lamb got was a handwritten 1995 letter from a previous owner’s son, complete with a picture of the Charles Gillette garden as well as a 1929 book “The Trail of the Three Notched Road” mentioning the house. Their house, like many of the early 20th century houses nearby, was originally built as a summer cottage for residents of downtown Richmond to escape the city heat. Jeff Lamb knew the moment he saw the backyard and extensive outdoor living space that he wanted the house. Anne Lamb wanted a master bedroom, which the house didn’t have, so the couple spent the first year sleeping in almost every room to figure out where they could add on a master bedroom. The original design provided no natural light in the back of the house. “Nobody would have suspected how close to nature this is from the busy street out front,” Anne says. Architect Terry Cox was hired to stay true to the house’s character while updating it to the Lamb family’s needs, a project that delivered a master suite and bathroom, turned the kitchen sideways to maximize backyard access and views and added a keeping room that’s since become the family’s go-to gathering place. “I was nervous about changing the Charles Gillette gardens,” Anne admits, although she knew they needed more flat spaces out back for functionality. Multilevel patios make the most of the steep grade and provide enough room to entertain 125 guests, which they did last summer. Hydrangeas have been added to Gillette’s

boxwoods, all of which are surrounded by stately, old trees. “There have been some modifications,” Anne says, gesturing toward the green Claude Monet bridge reminiscent of Giverny, France, and a burbling fountain, both installed by a previous owner. “But I think Charles Gillette would be happy with them.”

t’s much easier to collect art together when both husband and wife have the same taste. For Jil and Hiter Harris, it was contemporary art, specifically abstract expressionism and colourist painting, that spoke to them when they began collecting, especially the work of Hans Hoffman and his students. Over the years, the couple bought art on trips, at auctions and through Reynolds Gallery. Today their home is like an art gallery, with paintings hung salon-style and decorative art pieces resting on tables and in cabinets. Walking through the rooms, an art loving visitor can’t help but be dazzled by familiar 10 names such as Grandma Moses, Sol LeWitt and Robert

Motherwell. Virginia is well represented with works by Jack Wax, Frank Hobbs and photographer Sally Mann. One particularly charming gouache painting of a Parisian street scene is by Ludwig Bemelmans, the creator of the “Madeline” books. Some of the artists’ names may be familiar, even if their artistic output is not. One of the more unexpected pieces is by Dylan. Yes, the same Bob Dylan who gave the world “Blowin’ in the Wind” always traveled with a sketch book when he was on tour, usually sketching interiors. The one that hangs in the Harris’ house was first scanned onto deckle-edged paper before Dylan hand-colored it.

Among the students of Hans Hoffman whose work they’ve collected are Richmond-born Nell Blaine, Wolf Kahn and Robert De Niro Sr. “Wolf Kahn’s wife Emily Mason was a fine colorist in her own right,” Harris says, indicating a Mason painting. Not all of their collecting revolved around painting, as is evident by two silver plates by Salvador Dali and glass pieces by Dale Chihuly. “This is a well-lived, well-loved family home and our children grew up around art,” Jil Harris says, pointing out a Hans Hoffman painting done in Provincetown, Massachusetts. “The house would be so blah without all these wonderful colors”

Manakin-Sabot Tour Friday, May 3 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

About 30 minutes west of Richmond, the community of Manakin-Sabot offers visitors a taste of Goochland County’s rolling hills and picturesque countryside. Rich in history, four properties located on Sabot Hill Plantation are featured including Sabot Hill, a Georgian-style mansion with formal gardens that are more than 1,000-years-old. The current residence is in the same location as the original house built by James Seddon in the 1850s. Destroyed by fire in the 1920s, it was rebuilt by William T. Reed Jr. in 1937. Tour includes Seddon’s recently renovated horse stables. Built in 1853 in the Italianate style, Ben Dover Farm will also be open for touring. The Reed family renovated this home as well, updating it in the colonial revival style in 1930. The current owners restored the home to its original Italianate design and have recently landscaped the gardens. National historic landmark and Thomas Jefferson’s childhood home, Tuckahoe Plantation, is the fifth house on the tour. Tour headquarters Sabot Hill, 849 Sabot Hill Road. Tickets Tickets are $45 in advance, $55 the day of the tour, or $120 for a three-day pass for all Richmond tours (3-day pass only available at vagardenweek.org). Single-site admission $20.

Theresa Riddle and William Coogan, owners

T

o walk into Ben Dover Farm, an 1853 informal Italianate mansion, is to behold a labor of love. When Theresa Riddle and William Coogan bought the home in 2015, they already had a head start on renovating it. With a fondness for salvaged materials, the duo had been buying and storing things such as paneling, doors, pediments, windows and chandeliers for years before they ever laid eyes on the 15,253-squarefoot house. Once the renovation began, the challenge was finding where and how to use all those things they’d been saving up. Of the 75 to 85 chandeliers Coogan estimates are in the house, most of them began life in other buildings. One came from an old hotel in Virginia Beach, others from Sweden and Ohio. Several are Murano glass from Italy, while three are original to the house. The one in the two-story library is an old barn chandelier from France. Every room holds more finds, from columns originally in a San Francisco courthouse to a fireplace mantel from a Newport, Rhode Island house. Because the original house had few closets, armoires pull closet duty in most rooms, including one built for President James Monroe’s house. “For us, it was an opportunity to take something old and give it back some of its former glory,” Riddle explains of preserving history while recycling materials like brick and wood. The work wrapped up last spring and they moved in on Easter. The property is every bit as fascinating as the house. Charles Lindbergh famously landed his plane in the field outside the house. In 1910, a Brunswick bowling alley was built near the carriage house and has since been connected to a guest house and a carriage house. “It’s been a blast trying to figure out how to bring the house back, working with contractors to figure out what goes where,” Coogan says. “It was like a giant puzzle and 13 eventually we solved it.”

hen Marnie and David Williams bought their home in 2016, it came with an unusual outbuilding: circa 1850 brick stables original to Sabot Hill, the grand estate built by James Seddon, the Confederate secretary of war. Although it had been set on fire during a Civil War raid, the brick building didn’t burn down. Marnie Williams is a ceramics artist and painter, so the couple decided to have the stables renovated into an art studio for her. It took a year and was only finished in February, but the result is a ceramic and pottery studio with a kiln, glazing room and spray booth downstairs and a large space for painting, along with a great room, upstairs. Clocking in at just over a year, the renovation was completed by Ridgeline Construction. “They did a phenomenal job of removing old materials and repurposing them in the conversion,” David says. The upper part of the stable had 30-foot yellow heart pine beams that dated back to just after the Civil War. They were cut out and a post-andbeam construction put in to support the roof. Those beams, along with other salvaged lumber of oak and chestnut, were used to make trim, furniture and shelving for the studio. The stables renovation was a sympathetic one and little was changed on the exterior. In a nod to historic preservation, a third of the downstairs was left as stables and a third of the upstairs remains in its original state as stable storage, with glass doors all the way across the back. There, the original scorch marks are visible. “It’s very cool to see when you’re in there,” David says. Visitors will have a chance to see Marnie’s ceramics in cupboards in the kitchen and several of her in-progress paintings will also be on display. “This studio is all about her,” her husband says.

ne of the most fitting ways to describe Clarendon is as an animal collective. When Robert and Betsy Fauntleroy had the house built in 2008, its location spoke to Betsy, for whom horses had always been a way of life. Both of her daughters had grown up riding and she’d boarded her horses in Goochland for a dozen years before they decided to build there. The goal was a property geared toward enjoying the outdoors, gardening and, for her, riding every day. She’d grown up in South Carolina and wanted a place that embraced the English country culture, but with a South Carolinian graciousness about it. Part of that sprung from a desire to have a house that would accommodate the beautiful furnishings she’d received from her mother and grandmother, while allowing she and her husband to indulge their passion for gardening. The house overlooks Dover Lake, a shared community space where neighbors come to kayak, fish and swim. Every year, the Fauntleroys host a field day for children from Anne Julia Cooper Episcopal School in Richmond’s East End, where Betsy is on the board of directors. Walking around the property means meeting the Fauntleroy’s menagerie, many of them adopted from rescue organizations. All told, Clarendon is home to eight horses, including a draft horse saved from the slaughterhouse, two rescue miniature donkeys, several of her daughters’ retired show horses, her own two for daily riding, four dogs, a barn cat and around 20 chickens, including breeds such as Rhode Island Reds and Plymouth Rocks. They share their eggs with neighbors and take some to the school. “I love animals and it’s fun to have the space to accommodate and enjoy them,” she says. “I view this as a sanctuary for animals.”

Historic Garden Week

ohn Van Der Hyde is the first to admit that he fell in love with Sabot Hill 16 years ago because of its library. The pine paneling used in the room came from Mount Prospect, a 1720s-era New Kent County house. “When I walked into that library, I had a sense of déjà vu,” Van Der Hyde recalls. Later he realized he’d seen the library pictured in a book. The original Sabot Hill House had been built in 1855 by James Seddon, who later became secretary of war in the Confederacy under Jefferson Davis. After having the house built in 1855, he lived there until his death in 1880. The original house burned in the 1920s. When Mr. and Mrs. William T. Reed bought the property in 1937, they insisted their house be situated on the footprint of the Seddon home. The Reeds used Virginia architectural firm Baskervill & Sons and constructed the house using entirely Virginia materials, including Virginia limestone around the fireplaces, locks and hinges procured from old Virginia houses and native woods for paneling. “Much as we like the house, we like the view better,” Van Der Hyde admits. Sabot Hill sits on the highest point in the county and some of its treetops can be seen as you drive toward the property. The house was designed with no internal load-bearing walls, so steel-reinforced concrete separates the floors, with even the attic having a concrete floor. The solid flooring caused a few hiccups for the Van Der Hydes. “When we wanted a house stereo put in, they burned up a drill bit to install every speaker,” he says. “They had to jackhammer through concrete to hang the dining room chandelier.” The house had no air conditioning when the Van Der Hydes bought it because Mrs. Reed hadn’t wanted it to mar the lines of the colonial revival home. Her reasoning, according to her children, was that civilized people went to the mountains in the summer. Mrs. Reed, of course, had a mountain house as well. 17
