Once owned by memorable leaders in the Norfolk, Virginia area, 603 Redgate Avenue is a historical property brimming with 1900s architectural style and unique features to that era. Built in 1902, the 5500 square foot is a colonial revival sitting in the family-friendly neighborhood of Ghent– a location in Norfolk known for its rich history in art, people, and architecture. The five bedroom, five bathroom home had undergone some serious renovations since being built and was even once converted into a multi-family home with different rooms being their individual units. But thanks to some of the previous owners, much of the home’s history was restored using materials from the time period it was built, leaving it in remarkable condition without sacrificing the home’s character.

Norfolk’s famed architect, Elbert Tatterson, built the property to originally be used as a showcase for his talents in construction (other ventures of his included the Wells Broadway Theater) and even built additional properties on the same street, one of which was used as his home. Now, the property is listed on Homes.com for $824,900 and while we’re not looking to move anytime soon, this home might make us change our mind. Take a look inside and see the beauty for yourself as the owner, Gil, takes us on a tour of this historical home.

Other antique features of the home include pre-WWII windows, ornately detailed radiators, original brickwork, and the home’s original clawfoot bathtub.
