A Windsor Farms mansion eclipsed the area’s top home sales for February, costing nearly double what the month’s second-priciest home sold for on the same day.
The 14,400-square-foot Tudor Revival mansion at 4603 Sulgrave Road in Windsor Farms sold Feb. 1 for $3.3 million, below its most recent asking price of $3.99 million. The 11-bedroom, 10-bathroom home originally was listed last March for $4.95 million.
Debbie Gibbs of The Steele Group | Sotheby’s International Realty had the listing, representing the sellers, Peter and Judy Brown. Peter Brown, a retired surgeon, died in September.
The house was purchased through Loudon County-based Garland LLC, the name a reference to the moniker of the 1930s house. The mystery buyer was represented by Anne Hall of Long & Foster | Christie’s International Real Estate.
The month’s second-highest sale, which also closed Feb. 1, was 7401 Riverside Drive, the custom-built, 4,000-square-foot former residence of retired tobacco executive James Starkey III. The contemporary house with views of the James River sold for $1.72 million, below its November list price of $1.75 million.
The buyer was Laurie Petronis, a local house restorer who downsized from a Windsor Farms residence she listed in December. That house, at 203 Wakefield Road, was listed as pending this week.
Jolanda Knezevich of Long & Foster represented Petronis in the transaction. Fellow Long & Foster agent Marianne Donahue represented Starkey, who purchased the Hanover County homestead of the late Harwood and Louise Cochrane in November.
Third on the list is the $1.54 million sale of 3506 Robious Crossing Drive in Queenspark in Midlothian. The 5,600-square-foot house, which sold Feb. 9 and was built in 2015, was listed at $1.2 million for Chesterfield-based builder R. E. Collier by Catherine Cooper of The Steele Group. Joyner Fine Properties’ Lynn Pritchard represented the buyers, listed in property records as Joshua Herzog, a spine surgeon at OrthoVirginia, and Carrie Herzog.
In the fourth spot is 585 Blue Goose Road in Goochland, which sold Feb. 15 for $1.43 million. The 6,300-square-foot house on 22 acres was listed in November for $1.59 million. Jennifer Dudley of Long & Foster represented the seller, Dale Call, a Crozier-based consultant. Marye Cole of Real Living Eudailey Real Estate represented the buyer, who was not listed on online property records as of Wednesday.
Rounding out the top five for February was 8905 Brennan Road in Mooreland Farms in Henrico, which sold Feb. 24 for $1.25 million. The 6,000-square-foot hillside house overlooking the James River valley originally was listed in November 2015 for $1.95 million, and was most recently listed for $1.49 million.
Joyner Fine Properties’ Lacy Williams had the listing and also represented the buyers, who were not listed in Henrico property records as of Tuesday. The sellers were David A. and A.W. Harrison IV, who put the home in a trust in 2014. David Harrison is a grandson of David A. Harrison Jr., co-founder of the Marks & Harrison law firm, and a son of the late David A.
