Renovation work at 617 St. Peter Street has recently been completed.
Located between the historic Meredith House and the new home of the Black History Museum and Cultural Center of Virginia sits 617 St. Peter Street. The MacTyler Development Corp recently completed restoration and renovation work on the home.
The MacTyler Development Corporation purchased the home from Historic Richmond in early 2014. The general contractor was Ark Construction & Development.
From Richmond BizSense:
Before its purchase, it had sat mostly vacant for around five years. The chimney had caved into the back of the house, and the front porch had nearly fallen away, Glavé said.
“The back was hanging on by a thread,” he said. “It was pretty much toast.”
MacTyler managed to save the home’s many historic features, including its Victorian-style front porch’s elaborate scrollwork, details on the staircase, and intricately designed trim on the mantles.
“It was a labor of love,” Glavé said.
