Find Your New Home in Historic Cedar Works at Rocketts Landing

Post Date: 08-27-2014
Combining history with modern appeal is one of the many reasons we appreciate RVA and our riverfront community. Not only can we offer lively contemporary living along the James River at Rocketts Landing, but we get to do so in an area seeped in history — which brings us to our unique Cedar Works building. As our community’s only historic residential building, homeowners enjoy unique charm that blends architecture from its former life as a manufacturing facility with today’s stylish touch. And, for the right person, one of the building’s last available homes could be yours!

Our Cedar Works building sits at the entrance of Rocketts Landing along Route 5.

This spacious home offers 1930-square-feet of living space, featuring three bedrooms and three bathrooms. So, whether you enjoy hosting dinner parties or building forts with your kids, you’ll have plenty of space for spreading out or cozying up. And you’ll do so with high ceilings that lift the room’s ambiance and let the light in through windows nearly surrounding the home.

The Cedar Works home features historic columns and wooden ceilings, harkening to days past.

Some of our favorite Cedar Works features are the exposed wooden beams and brick walls that hearken back to the building’s 19th-century roots. Offering unique character and structure, they’re the perfect architectural details for the history lover (in fact, you can even find factory workers’ initials carved in many of the building’s beams!). But history isn’t the only attractive feature — stainless steel appliances and granite countertops perfectly marry the old with the new. And with tons of storage space in the kitchen and throughout the home, you won’t have to worry about clutter marring your beautiful interior.

The spacious kitchen features granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, and opens into the living room.

Enjoy sitting outside, sipping a glass of wine and reading a good book? With your personal terrace, you can relax with expansive neighborhood views that overlook the courtyard and fountain. Combine this household comfort with the ease of your own parking and storage space, and you’ll wonder why you didn’t move here sooner!

Exposed original brick is nicely balanced with carpet and long windows throughout the bedrooms.

This inviting Cedar Works home is for sale at the recently reduced price of $349,900, making this a great opportunity for finding your place at Rocketts Landing! To schedule your personal tour, contact Amy Broderick at 804.222.5011. We look forward to welcoming our newest homeowner.
