June was a hot month for residential real estate in Richmond’s West End, which claimed the top three priciest area home sales – the top two in the same neighborhood.
Windsor Farms landed the two highest sales of the month, with 104 Tonbridge Road selling June 20 for $1.87 million and 305 Saint Davids Lane selling June 6 for $1.59 million.
The third spot on the list went to another West End home, 605 Levering Lane, which sold June 2 for $1.31 million.
The Tonbridge Road property was listed by Wes Atiyeh of Joyner Fine Properties on behalf of sellers Bradley and Corey Parker. The 5,100-square-foot home sold below its March 12 list price of $1.95 million.
The five-bedroom, 5½-bathroom house was purchased through an entity called Prince St LLC, the registered agent for which is local attorney Robert Blackwood III. The mystery buyer was represented in the transaction by Joyner agent Jim Ransone.
Atiyeh, whose listings include the currently pending Windward mansion in western Henrico, said the Tonbridge house went under contract four days after it was listed and the buyers are a local couple.
Atiyeh grew up next door to the 1930s-era house, which he said was renovated with an addition and modernizations. He marketed the property with an agent preview event, open house and online advertising.
Elsewhere in Windsor Farms, the 4,600-square-foot house at 305 Saint Davids Lane sold at list price nearly two months after it was listed April 11. Joyner agents Mary Davenport and Jill Plageman had the listing.
Davenport and Plageman represented the sellers, J. Rice and Elizabeth Davenport Edmonds, whose $1.9 million purchase of a 6,000-square-foot home at 5301 Kenmore Road was the Richmond area’s top seller for May. The Davenport-Plageman team likewise represented the Edmondses in that transaction.
City property records list the Saint Davids home buyer as Betsy Lynne Anderson Revocable Trust, which was represented by Susan Cullen of Long & Foster. The 1940 house has five bedrooms and 3½ bathrooms.
The Levering Lane house, built in 2015 and listed that December, sold below its asking price of $1.6 million. The five-bedroom, five-plus-bathroom house was listed by Long & Foster’s David Cooke on behalf of Fairfax-based builder Middleburg Associates. Joyner’s Sue Vaught represented the buyers, Deborah and John Kemper, who purchased it through a trust, according to city records.
All five top home sales for June topped the million-dollar mark. Rounding out the list, according to the Central Virginia Regional Multiple Listing Service, were two homes in Henrico: 9904 Kingsbridge Road, which sold for $1.2 million; and 2873 Oak Point Lane in Barrington West, which sold for $1.07 million.
