So rich in detail is this Second Empire mansion that it’s hard not to conclude that when T. Wiley Davis erected it for himself he wasn’t showcasing his full range of skills as both an architect and a builder. From the soaring mansard to the fanciful bays, those carefully preserved details are as distinctive today as they were when the house was built in 1885. Among original highlights are: windows with colored-glass borders, an arched sleeping alcove, a unique two-room bay as well as sitting alcoves off the main hall. Modern refinements include an owner’s suite with a two-room bath and a walk-in closet; a family room with a gas FP; a wet bar; 3-zone HVAC, 3.5 baths; and a large eat-in kitchen. To the rear is a fenced garden and the entrance to the basement workshop. Situated on a wide corner lot in Church Hill’s St. John’s historic district, this is a perfect place for grand entertaining as well as for a  household requiring at least five bedrooms or, alternatively, three spacious suites. Bakery, cafes, coffee & wine shops are steps away. Minutes from James River parks, downtown, interstate and airport.
