A local couple behind a Henrico-based concrete company is looking to sell their 13,000-square-foot home in a Glen Allen subdivision for nearly $2.5 million.
Located on 2 acres at the end of a cul-de-sac in the Hunton Estates neighborhood, the five-bedroom, six-bathroom home at 3200 Lavecchia Way was listed April 14 for $2.49 million.
Totaling 20 rooms that include a disco/dance hall and a 12-seat theater, the three-level house was listed by Re/Max Today associate broker Dara Friedlander on behalf of the sellers, identified in county property records as Miguel and Laura Moreira.
Miguel Moreira is president of Henrico-based Spanish Quality Concrete, according to filings with the State Corporation Commission. Laura Moreira serves as the company’s secretary.
Friedlander said the Moreiras have downsized to another home they had built in the Richmond area. She said they had the Lavecchia Way home built and customized with their company’s product put to good use.
“The structure itself is so sound, it has 12-inch-thick walls of concrete, and then the brick was built after that,” Friedlander said. “The paver driveway, itself, was over $100,000 in work.”
The Moreiras purchased the lot in 2008 for $125,000 from Parker & Orleans Homebuilders, based out of Cary, North Carolina. Friedlander said the company was building another home that burned down before it sold the lot to the Moreiras.
A recent county assessment valued the property at $1.27 million – significantly higher than the smaller-sized homes on either side of it that are valued in the $500,000 range. The larger lot is located alongside Interstate 295 across from RF&P Park and includes a swimming pool with pool house, a regulation-size tennis court, a basketball court and a quarter-mile running track.
The house consists of three levels of finished living space, including a two-story foyer and a walk-out basement with game areas and a kitchen, in addition to the dance hall and theater.
The first floor includes a mini master bedroom or in-law suite, a gym and an office that could be converted into additional bedrooms. Friedlander said the house could total as many as eight or nine bedrooms.
The second level includes an owner’s suite with dual balconies, a double walk-in closet, a sitting room with fireplace and two additional bedrooms with private baths and balcony access. Laundry facilities are located on each of the home’s three floors.
Friedlander said she is targeting a particular buyer for the house: professional football players. She said she is reaching out to area sports teams in addition to real estate and home magazines in Virginia, New Jersey and New York, and she’s had a 24-page brochure created to cover the home’s custom details.
“Everybody thinks it’s already a football or basketball player’s house,” she said. “With the Redskins close by and our close proximity to D.C., it’s pretty easy for people to get in and out of Richmond, and why not have them live here on a great property in Glen Allen?”
The house is one of the priciest to hit the Richmond market this year. A 7,100-square-foot home listed last month for $1.85 million was put under contract within days. A Windsor Farms home listed for $1.95 million is likewise listed as pending.
