Two residential listings in recent weeks in southeastern Chesterfield County are pushing, and breaking, the $2 million mark.
A 6,700-square-foot house on 80 acres south of Chester hit the market May 30 for $2.5 million, while a slightly larger, 6,900-square-foot home on a waterfront lot in Meadowville Landing was listed June 4 with an asking price $50 shy of $2 million.
The smaller but pricier of the two, at 14500 Woods Edge Road, was listed by Freddy Boisseau of Chester-based Front Door Realty Group for seller Angela Renee Gay, who acquired the three parcels that make up the 80-acre property in 2008 and 2009, according to county property records.
Boisseau, who said he picked up the listing through a referral agency, said Gay and her husband, a local executive, are open to a buyer subdividing the property but would prefer to sell it as a whole. He said he didn’t have permission to disclose Gay’s husband’s name or employer.
Totaling four bedrooms and four bathrooms, the custom-built house includes a first-floor master suite with a private entrance, an office, a family room with stone gas fireplace, and a movie theater and game room in the basement.
Boisseau said he’s targeting potential buyers in Northern Virginia and Washington, D.C., as the property’s proximity to Interstate 95 may appeal to someone commuting there for work. He said the listing is unusual for the size of the house as well as the land.
“You don’t find many properties in this area of Chester of this size and quality,” Boisseau said. “And being that it’s right off 95 with easy access to everything makes it unique.”
The latest assessment by the county valued the three parcels at $994,200 combined. Property records show Gay purchased the two adjoining parcels totaling 27 acres in 2008 for a total of $259,200, while the 53-acre parcel with the house was acquired in 2009 with no sale price listed. That parcel is assessed at $866,800, bringing the overall property’s combined assessed value to just over $1.12 million.
A few miles northeast in Meadowville Landing, the five-bedroom, 6½-bath house at 2024 Channel View Terrace was listed by Andrea Levine of One South Realty Group for sellers Mitesh and Neema Amin, both local physicians.
Levine said the Amins, who purchased the 1.4-acre lot in 2011 for $500,000, are looking to move to a different school district but plan to stay in the Richmond area. Property records show the home was most recently assessed at $1.4 million.
Designed by Chesterfield-based McCallister + Foltz Architects, the house includes a first- and second-floor master suite, indoor-outdoor living areas, zoned geothermal heating and cooling and a heated saltwater pool. It also includes a media room with bar and keg taps, a wine storage room, and a three-car garage with electric-vehicle charging stations.
The home was featured last fall in an R-Home Magazine article. Levine said she’s marketing it with a standalone website and emails to agents who deal in the higher-end home market.
“It is a spectacular home,” Levine said. “As far as detail and modern lines, it is beautifully executed.”
The listings add to others in the Richmond metro area topping the $2 million mark. In western Henrico County, a 6,100-square-foot house at 16 Country Squire Lane was listed last month for $2.9 million and was recently reduced to $2.79 million.
