February proved another hot month on Monument Avenue for high-end home sales.

A Mediterranean-style mansion at 2315 Monument Ave. and a condominium in Monument Square were among the top five highest-priced residential sales in the Richmond market last month, according to the Central Virginia Regional Multiple Listing Service.

The 7,600-square-foot residence at 2315 Monument Ave. sold Feb. 23 for $2.22 million, topping the list of the region’s home sales for the month. The property was listed Dec. 15 for $2.19 million by Ceci Amrhein-Gallasch and Lacy Williams of Joyner Fine Properties.

Built in 1924, the three-level mansion has 24 rooms, seven bedrooms and four bathrooms. The stucco-sided building was designed by noted architect William Lawrence Bottomley.

The Monument Avenue home was built in the 1920s and is more than 7,000 square feet.

The sellers were Thomas M. and Susan W. Eckis. City records list the buyer as Seattle, Washington-based Bosco LLC. The registered agent for the company is Julie L. Cordell, according to information from the State Corporation Commission.

The quarter-acre parcel and home were most recently assessed by the city at $1.43 million.

The mansion features a grand foyer with curved staircase, a KDW Home-designed kitchen intended for a professional chef, a library with arched bookcases and ceiling modeled after a Roman art gallery, and a formal dining room with a beamed ceiling and terracotta tile floor.

Other features include an outdoor courtyard with a reflecting pond and a four-car garage.

The other Monument Avenue home to make the top five was a 3,300-square-foot condominium in Monument Square, catty-corner from Willow Lawn. The three-bedroom, two-bath home was listed Nov. 4 and sold for $1.19 million on Feb. 27, below its list price of $1.25 million.

The historic street had three of the top five home sales last November.

Rounding out the top five were:

12103 Colefield Drive, near Ashland: $1.485 million
7852 Rockfalls Drive, Southside Richmond: $1.4 million
