One of the newer homes in Henrico’s Mooreland Landing neighborhood was the highest-priced residential property sold in the Richmond area for June.
The 7,300-square-foot brick house at 627 Walsing Drive sold June 1 for $1.47 million, below its Feb. 20 list price of $1.49 million.
The five-bedroom, 5 1/2-bathroom home went under contract in March within a month of its listing, said listing agent Richard Bower of Joyner Fine Properties.
County property records list the buyers as William R. Kelly and Brenda A. Hart. The sellers were David M. and Gretchen B. Cuprisin.
Bower said the buyers are moving from Connecticut and previously lived in Richmond, giving them a leg up on the local housing market.
“They were very familiar with the Richmond market and were particularly attracted to the River Road corridor, where they had lived when they lived here before,” Bower said. “When their house sold in Connecticut, they already were very familiar with what was on the market and had been watching the inventory.”
Spanning three levels, the two-story house, built in 2009, includes an upstairs loft and library space, a wet bar, first-floor and second-floor master suites, and a lower level rec room that overlooks a covered terrace.
The 2.3-acre property includes a pool and four-car garage. Bower noted the home also has access to Mooreland Landing’s common area, which covers 125 acres and includes trails, picnic areas and access to the river.
“That’s one thing that’s really unique about Mooreland Landing, that it has access to the James River,” Bower said.
The house is down the street from a 15,000-square-foot mansion at 639 Walsing Drive that sold in 2014 for $1.64 million. At the time, that house was considered the third-largest in Henrico.
Also nearby, a 6,000-square-foot home and hillside estate at 8905 Brennan Road is for sale for $1.65 million, reduced from its original asking price of $1.95 million.
