Another million-dollar mansion with some notable names attached to it has hit the market on Monument Avenue.
An 11-room, four-story house at 2712 Monument Ave. was listed Monday for $1.72 million. The century-old home is just east of the Boulevard in the city’s Fan District.
City property records list the sellers as Jerome T. and Sue F. Lienhard II. Jill Plageman and Mary Davenport of Joyner Fine Properties are the listing agents.
Jerome Lienhard is an executive with SunTrust Bank. He was recently CEO of SunTrust Mortgage, which has a large operation in Richmond.
According to city records, the house was once owned by Justin French, the notorious Richmond developer who is serving a 16-year prison term for a massive real estate tax credit scheme. He owned the house from 1999 to 2003, when he and his wife Tanya purchased their next residence: the recently auctioned mansion at 330 Oak Lane.
The Monument Avenue house also happens to be just three doors down from the former residence of another infamous Richmond developer: Billy Jefferson, whose mansion at Monument and Boulevard sold last year for $1.7 million. Jefferson is likewise currently serving a prison sentence for historic tax fraud.
After French, the Monument house was sold to Richard and Mary Fowlkes II, who resided there for 10 years before selling to the Lienhards in 2013. The Lienhards purchased the property for $1.58 million. A recent city assessment valued the property at $1.54 million.
Built in 1915, the Colonial Revival-style home consists of 6,300 square feet of finished space and 1,100 square feet of additional space. It has six bedrooms, the equivalent of five bathrooms and a renovated master suite with two walk-in closets and a marble luxury bath.
Other amenities include a full basement, two-car detached garage and private entrance. Designed by Richmond architect Duncan Lee, the house also features brick and slate courtyards with a garden designed by noted landscape architect Charles Gillette.
The house is the latest million-dollar listing to emerge on Monument. A house at 2039 Monument is for sale for $1.49 million; the Blair House, at 2327 Monument, was listed earlier this month for $2.85 million; and a Mediterranean-style mansion at 2315 Monument sold in March for $2.2 million.
