Living in the East End of Richmond guarantees a unique and historical residence chockful of parks, cemeteries, landmarks, hills and beautiful housing. Within the past 10 years this area of town has grown, progressed and become the hip place to live. One can live in the hotel-like lofts of Tobacco Row with its in-house amenities, reside in Richmond's oldest and most sought after neighborhood, Church Hill, or enjoy the residential, lofty perch of Montrose Heights. There's a lot of diversity in the East End. This neighborhood has been revitalized and is still transforming. Littered with cemeteries of yore, parks with beautiful overlooks of the city, and restaurants that put Richmond on the "foodie" map. It's hilly in topography which makes for a great walking/running/jogging/cycling workout! Great neighbors made up of young professionals, young families, and old Richmond denizens.
