This 2-level loft-style apartment teems with historic character. Its interior brick walls, black & white porcelain tiles, and hardwood floors create an incredibly welcoming ambiance. The place is close to the area's best restaurants and the James River, Blue Ridge Mountains, and the area's four universities are all nearby. Its panoramic views from above the city are wondrous with no late afternoon or evening direct sun. Truly an ideal place for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers.
The building itself, "Gilliam House" was built in the mid-19th century and is an exceptional building with exterior and interior walls as much as 5 layers of brick thick. The suite includes some of these brick walls exposed on the interior along with original wood flooring in the living room and classic black and white porcelain tiling in the kitchen and the bathroom. The spiral staircase is "cool" and the suite includes a high efficiency front-loading washer and dryer along with an expansive private back brick patio with views overlooking downtown Lynchburg.
The apartment is self contained and guests have access to the entire suite. Please note that the large brick patio behind the suite is also private and is for use only by the guests (and their friends) of this suite.
Interaction with guests
I live and work very close to the building and strive to make myself available for any needs or problems which our guests encounter. Nonetheless, I tend to "stay out of the way" and will generally not impose on my guests and will only come by if requested to attend to an issue.
This is a "Mixed-Use" building, i.e. there are both residential/apartment suites and commercial/business suites in the building. We ask that all of our guests be courteous and keep this in mind in regards to noise during normal working hours.
I'm a former professor who loves renovating historic buildings, of which Lynchburg has a plethora. My wife and I believe in striving to build a better world and tend to be eclectic in our likes and preferences. Our approach to hosting is to provide meticulously crafted luxury that our guests recognize and appreciate.
