Glenburnie has its beginnings in the 1930s, but its inspiration goes much farther back in time. The original owners of the land named Glenburnie for their home in Scotland. Despite the tie to Scotland, Glenburnie is a neighborhood that reflects the building design of Colonial Virginia.
Nestled between Grove and Patterson, Glenburnie is a convenient location for people wanting a neighborhood feel in the metro area. It’s older homes offer homeowners unique designs with quality building. It’s a West End dream come true. Like many older homes, beauty is unparalleled. And, sometimes, so are the peculiarities of prior generations when it comes to home. Kitchens and baths in older homes, especially, can be quite different from the needs of a 21st-century family.
While no one wants to destroy the historic feel of a house, there are always a few things that could stand updating. Like most of us, there are probably some things you’d like to change. Leo Lantz, in Glen Allen, has been updating historic homes throughout Richmond for over 20 years.

Whatever your plans are, Leo Lantz has the experience to create your dream kitchen in Glenburnie.
