Because this seller is so interesting, we decided to leave the DC/NoVa/MD environs and travel south on I-95 to the 804. Garren DeFazio, a famous New York hairstylist, is selling his Spanish-style mansion for $1.3M. Located in Richmond's Byrd Park, the 1934 house has a storied history all its own when it was the "bachelor pad for Webster Rhoads of Miller & Rhoads department store fame". But back to the seller: DeFazio's clients are so famous they only need one name, such as Madonna, Angelina, and Oprah, and he requires frequent travel between Richmond and NYC. So why is he and his partner selling such an incredible home? Because they "have had trouble scheduling flights ever since JetBlue Airways canceled its service from Richmond to New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport in November 2010". Sometimes it's minor events that break the camel's back.
