Another pair of $2 million purchases topped the Richmond area’s priciest home sales in August – the second month in a row with two sales topping that mark.
The 10,000-square-foot “Windward” mansion near the University of Richmond topped last month’s sales at $2.74 million, followed by John and Margaret Gottwald’s secondary home at 7701 Riverside Drive, which sold for $2.05 million.
The purchases are the latest $2 million deals in what’s proven to be a hot summer for Richmond’s million-dollar home market. In July, a 113-acre Manakin-Sabot estate sold for $2.2 million and a West End home at 4716 Charmian Road sold for $2.1 million.
Windward sold Aug. 15, below its original asking price of $2.9 million. The 200-year-old reconstructed home was first put on the market in June 2016. Wes Atiyeh with Joyner Fine Properties had the listing.
Fellow Joyner agent Nancy Cheely listed the Gottwalds’ house, which sold Aug. 23 for about $1 million less than its original $3.1 million price tag. The price was reduced three times since the 5,400-square-foot house was listed in April 2016.
Three million-dollar deals rounded out the top five home sales for August, according to the Central Virginia Regional Multiple Listing Service:
- • 14121 W. Salisbury Road, Midlothian – $1.71 million
- • 2000 Monument Ave., Richmond – $1.5 million
- • 3 Ampthill Road, Richmond – $1.42 million
