Correction: Descriptions of the house have been updated and corrected. An earlier version of this story included descriptions mistakenly pulled from a different listing.

A Windsor Farms house that hit the market over the weekend for nearly $2 million was listed by a real estate agent who’s known the property his whole life.

Listing agent Wes Atiyeh with Joyner Fine Properties grew up next door to the 5,100-square-foot home at 104 Tonbridge Road, which he put on the market for clients Sunday at $1.95 million.

Atiyeh listed the five-bedroom, 5½-bathroom house for Bradley and Corey Parker, who he likewise represented when they purchased the home. Bradley Parker is a facility manager at Mechanicsville-based Carter Machinery.

The Parkers paid $895,000 for the Tudor-style house in November 2014. They purchased it from Robert and Shirley Carroll. Robert Carroll is the founder and CEO of Glen Allen-based RLC Technologies.

The half-acre property most recently was assessed by the City of Richmond at $1.18 million.

Since the Parkers’ purchase, Atiyeh said they undertook a full renovation that included expanding and upgrading the kitchen and master bathroom.

Atiyeh, who said he regularly visited and house-sat for one of the home’s previous owners while he was growing up, said the renovation retained the home’s older details while updating its interiors with modern amenities and layouts. He said the house, constructed in 1932, was among the first to be built in Windsor Farms.

“I grew up next door, saw the house change hands a couple of times, knew the house well, and the kitchen was literally a walk-in closet size, maybe smaller,” Atiyeh said. “They really did a number on the addition.”

The sellers worked on the renovation with Scott Stephens of SMS Architects, Atiyeh’s brother-in-law. SMS has renovated several homes in the tony West End neighborhood, including a colonial-revival at 203 Wakefield Road that Laurie Petronis, a local house restorer, listed in December.

That house, priced at $1.75 million, has an offer pending. Petronis has since moved to 1701 Riverside Drive, which she purchased last month for $1.72 million.

The Tonbridge house includes a living room with beamed 9-foot ceiling, archways, brick fireplace, glass French doors and lead-pane windows. The original dining room includes an arched ceiling and chandelier, and the kitchen and family room addition includes a barrel-vaulted tin ceiling, granite island with prep sink, a hidden pantry and wine storage and a stone gas fireplace.

Each of the five bedrooms has its own bathroom, and the master suite includes a walk-in closet and private bath.

Atiyeh is holding a preview event for agents today.

The house is not the first million-dollar listing for Atiyeh. Last June, he listed the nearly 10,000-square-foot “Windward” home at 1 S. Ridge Road in Henrico County for $2.9 million. The home has since been taken off the market.
