Get to know the Church Hill community! If you lived here, you’d be home now. If not, now is the time to take a weekend trip to downtown Richmond and see the historical architectural influence of the neighborhood, and experience the beautiful renovation progress of early 20th buildings into luxury condo rentals. Nolde Condos, for example, were constructed from within the legendary Nolde Bakery warehouse, turning a once industrious area into a haven for Richmond residents, grad students, and professionals. You can almost smell the bread baking here!

What’s the best way to see Church Hill? The Richmond History Center offers a series of walking tours that cover the various neighborhoods in town, including this historic district. You can walk through Church Hill and see our condos near the many points of interest. RHC also offers Segway tours if you feel the urge to roll past.

Concerned about where to send your kids to school if you move here? Richmond prides itself on a strong education system, and the Church Hill community is blessed with a number of great public institutions like Armstrong High School and Bellevue Elementary. Franklin Military School is also nearby, as is Central Montessori School if you are interested in alternative options for education.

Church Hill also offers many opportunities to get involved with the greater community and to network with neighbors and make new friends. The Church Hill Association, Friends of Chimborazo Playground, and Friends of Jefferson Park are just three organizations designed to improve the quality of life in the historic neighborhoods of Richmond. Don’t forget, too, the annual Richmond’s Original Italian Street Festival brings the best of the old country home, with lots of great food and music.

So before you decide to make that move into a luxury Richmond condo, pay a visit to the friendly community of Church Hill and see for yourself the lively atmosphere and historic grace of this area. It’s one place you’ll definitely want to call home.
