3307 M Street. New Modern Architecture Home in Richmond’s Famed Church Hill Neighborhood
“Architecture is an expression of values. – Norman Foster
Driven by that principle, we are both excited and grateful to have the opportunity to provide modern design to the oldest and most historic neighborhood of Richmond VA. At the core of this project is the commonly accepted value of architecture that; attempting to replicate historic buildings only reduces the authenticity of the neighborhood.
Rather than trying to recreate the historic look of much older homes found in the neighborhood, our goal was to pay homage to the genius and creativity of those who came before, while also placing a modern timestamp on the home. To accomplish this, 3307 M maintains the overall proportions, scale and massing found in the properties surrounding the house; but it also differentiates itself visually with the use of modern design elements such as oversized windows, eco-friendly siding products, clean lines and natural cedar accents.
Once inside, you can relax and breathe easy. From the storage filled mud room to the touch sensor kitchen faucet or the spa inspired master bath, every detail of the public and private spaces have been painstakingly designed to create a stress-free living experience.
The first floor open living space with double-sided gas fireplace is perfect for enjoying time with family and friends or entertaining guests. A bright and efficient kitchen with massive island, stainless steel gas range and quartz countertops will bring out your inner chef.
Recharge after a long day in the Master Suite with huge walk-in closet, tiled bath with double sink, soaking tub and walk-in shower.

From the Builder:
I’ve been fascinated by buildings since I was a little kid. In high school, I took a design course that allowed me to work with CAD software. That class gave me the awareness of basic design concepts and spacial recognition that continues to help me best design living spaces. The final project that year was to design a building/structure or some sort of complex 3D model. I chose to design my “dream home.” It was a huge ‘U’ shaped house with fountains and garages and a pool. It was a fabulous opportunity that helped shape my passion for real estate. In fact, that single class, along with many books on real estate and business motivated me to become a real estate developer.
Presently my goal is to help redefine how people live by improving the spaces we use and removing the burdens of clutter and inefficiency from the home. Essentially our goal at Upward Builders is to create spaces that inspire greatness. Ever been on vacation and woke up full of energy? On vacation have you ever felt more clear and ready to conquer the world than at any time “back home.” Did you feel invincible, recharged, and full of ideas because you were not burdened by the endless papers, clothes, or dishes that typically await you each night when you get home from work?
If you are anything like me, I’m sure you can relate and you desperately want to find a better way to live. Well that is our mission, our vision and our goal for each home we create. We want you to feel inspired, recharged, excited and focused on being the best version of yourself each day by creating an atmosphere that promotes the best you.
We take the time to thoroughly review the floor plan, the storage, and the livability of each home in an effort to determine the best location to keep those pesky papers, conveniently charge your tech devices without yards of wires, and even where the best place to turn on a light might be. We want our homes to help compliment your busy and productive life by making a thoughtful, simple, and gorgeous home that helps motivate and inspire the greatness you possess.
