Second floor of an 1865 Tin shop, industrial building.
High, open beam ceilings & exposed brick walls. Bathroom features a soaker tub plus a lux walk in shower. The kitchen features quartz counters, a large farmhouse sink, really nice appliances and thoughtful touches everywhere. The wifi is excellent.
Have issues with stairs? This is not a good choice for you. If you're up for stairs and want a unique slice of history in a hip package then you will not be disappointed.

The space
In 1865 this building was the home of Nye and Starr, a manufacturer of tinware and stoves. The Starr in this business was actually Benjamin Starr, later of the famous Starr Piano Company and Starr Gennett Records. This tin shop was his first business after he returned from the civil war and would become the first step into Richmond's jazz and recording history. The loft also became the residence to the fire chiefs of our city. The number one fire house is directly behind us and now serves as a BBQ restaurant.
The neighborhood has become the place to come in Richmond for entertainment, food, and events. The coffee bar and tap room below the loft is Roscoe's, THE place in Richmond to connect and gather. It has become the hub of our community and to those visiting or attending a local college. With your stay, two breakfasts meals and two signature drinks at Roscoe's are included each day as our gift to you.
