A 7,400-square-foot home beside the Country Club of Virginia’s James River Course is under contract less than a week after it was listed for $2.2 million.
The five-bedroom, 5½-bathroom brick Georgian home at 643 Walsing Drive was listed May 6 and put under contract May 11. Henrico County most recently assessed the 7-acre property for $1.48 million.
The house was listed by Richard Bower with Joyner Fine Properties. He did not return a call seeking comment.
County property records list the seller as Jeffrey Congdon. Congdon was president of Old Dominion Truck Leasing, a family business based in Chesterfield County that was sold to Pennsylvania-based Penske Truck Leasing last year.
Congdon purchased the property in 1991 with Kay D. Congdon for $297,000, records show. The property was put under Jeffrey Congdon’s name in 2007.
The 24-year-old home is located on the river side of a cul-de-sac at the end of Walsing Drive, between the golf course and the nearby Mooreland Farms neighborhood.
The three-level house includes a two-story family room with stone fireplace, renovated kitchen, a wine-tasting room, first-floor master suite, and third-floor exercise or play room. The house also includes a three-car garage.
Outside, the property consists of multiple terraces, a pond with fountain, saltwater pool with pool house, a screened gathering area with stone fireplace, and access to the river and community boat ramp, dock, playground and picnic area.
In 2015, another Georgian-style home on CCV’s James River Course was listed for $2.2 million. After a price and land reduction, the 3,500-square-foot home at 911 S. Gaskins Road sold that December for $1.16 million.
