RICHMOND, Va. — The house that “Havoc” built is on the market. The Fan District home of former VCU men’s basketball coach Shaka Smart was listed for sale June 18. The 2½-story, 3,900-square-foot property at 2701 Park Ave. is priced at $1.49 million. Ceci Amrhein-Gallasch of Joyner Fine Properties has the listing.

“The house is gorgeous,” she said Thursday after wrapping up a showing. “It is in pristine condition. It shows beautifully.”

Amrhein-Gallasch said the Smarts made plenty of upgrades to the home, including modifications specifically to accommodate Smart’s taller house guests.

“They raised all the openings of the rooms in height and width because of the basketball players,” she said.

Situated on a double lot at Park Avenue and North Mulberry Street, the 15-room house includes six bedrooms and 4½ bathrooms. Built in 1921, the Colonial Revival-style house was designed by local architect Isaac Skinner, according to a description included with the listing.
