Welcome to Church Hill

Stately historic homes in a trendy, energetic community

 

Known as the historic heart of Richmond, this hip, urban mix-use neighborhood is one of the best places to live in the city. Overflowing with trendy eateries and bars, independent boutiques, and beautifully preserved buildings, Church Hill’s stylish community takes great pride in its location and amenities. 

 

Once host to the largest American Civil War hospital, today, Church Hill experienced an influx of new residents during the early 2000s. Named one of the most walkable neighborhoods in the city, Church Hill is the perfect combination of urban flair and small-town charm and draws potential homeowners from across the county and state to its energetic streets. 

 

Thanks to Church Hill’s long and colorful history, this part of Richmond offers buyers a wide variety of properties and architectural styles, with Art Deco, Queen Anne, and Colonial influences being the most common. With only a few townhouses available at any point in time, Church Hill offers homeowners an excellent investment opportunity as the local property market has become highly desirable and competitive.

Local Lifestyle

Much of life in Church Hill revolves around the acclaimed dining scene, with dozens of trendy, innovative cafes, bars, and restaurants lining the neighborhood streets. Thanks to the growing population of young homeowners, the community has become even more active and outgoing, with many events scheduled throughout the year that offers excellent opportunities to socialize with neighbors and fellow Church Hill residents. 

 

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

Thanks to its extensive history and increasingly youthful population Church Hill is home to many restaurants, cafes, and bars for residents to enjoy. Located in the heart of Church Hill’s most historic district, The Hill Cafe is a cozy, quaint spot offering freshly prepared New American dishes and a range of vegan and vegetarian options. For a trip down memory lane, Church Hill residents often choose to frequent Millie’s Diner, where breakfast fry-ups, sandwiches, and old-school milkshakes perfectly suit the diner’s retro vibes. 

 

For rainy days spent indoors or at-home dinner dates, Union Market is a great stop to pick up ready-made sandwiches and salads and the groceries required to turn any meal into a celebration of good food and local produce. And, when a more upscale setting is needed, look no further than the chic restaurant that is The Roosevelt. The Roosevelt is the perfect destination for a romantic dinner or a lavish celebratory meal with friends, serving elevated Southern cuisine and a selection of expertly mixed cocktails.

The nearby Black History Museum and Cultural Center of Virginia features well-appointed exhibits dedicated to African-American history in the state, while just next door, the Maggie L. Walker National Historic Site pays homage to the first-ever female African-American bank president. 

 

Nestled between Church Hill’s residential streets and the winding James River, Libby Hill Park is an epicenter of activity, often hosting outdoor events like yoga and photography sessions. Thanks to its prime location, the park also enjoys spectacular views of the river and the homes and buildings beyond.
