Note: This story has been updated to include The Steele Group’s Melanie Crittenden as one of two agents who represented the buyers of 6300 Three Chopt Road.
Two of the biggest home sales of 2018 came in within days of each other in December, closing out the year with transactions at or near $2 million apiece.
The pricier one was the 6,400-square-foot home at 6300 Three Chopt Road, which sold Dec. 14 for $2.07 million, making it the fourth-highest sale of the year.
The six-bedroom, 6½-bathroom home was listed Sept. 7 at $2.1 million. Property records show the nearly 1-acre property was valued at $1.52 million in the latest city assessment.
Records show the buyers are Nancy Gottwald Hartt, owner of Grove Avenue clothing store Nellie George, and Charlie Hartt, a regional sales representative for Rotochopper. They were represented by Katherine Hill of Shaheen, Martin, Ruth & Fonville Real Estate and Melanie Crittenden of The Steele Group | Sotheby’s International Realty.
Hill was previously with The Steele Group when she and Crittenden took on the listing but joined SMRF prior to the sale. Both are likewise working with the Hartts on listing the couple’s previous home in the West End.
The sellers were Mary Dalton Baril, a partner at McGuireWoods and daughter of former Virginia Gov. John Dalton, and her husband. They were represented by The Steele Group’s Debbie Gibbs.
Built in 1920, the West End colonial-style home includes an arched entry with a leaded glass window, a first-floor master suite, walk-in closets, and an en suite with fireplace and laundry. The first floor also has a living room, den, office and dining room.
The second and third floors contain additional bedrooms, each with en suite bathrooms. A terrace with built-in grill overlooks the property, which also has a wine cellar and guest house.
10th-highest price in 2018
Three days earlier, 18 Hampton Hills Lane sold for $1.72 million, making it the 10th-highest sale of the year. The 5,700-square-foot house was listed Sept. 18 at $1.79 million.
Records show the home was purchased by Danny and Paula Dukes. They were represented by Cabell Childress of Long & Foster.
Patricia Ray Barton of Joyner Fine Properties represented the seller, listed in property records as an LLC that purchased the home last year for $1 million. The home previously was listed in 2016 at $1.69 million and sold the following year for $1.2 million, two months before the LLC purchase.
The roughly 1-acre property is on a hilltop between the James River and the Country Club of Virginia. A recent city assessment valued the property at $1.07 million.
The home is a five-bedroom, 4½-bathroom colonial built in 1934. The entrance foyer has marble floors and original mirrored walls. The home includes a library with built-in bookcases and cabinets, a dining room and a kitchen with vaulted ceiling, island and walk-in pantry.
The master bathroom has heated marble floors, double vanities, a clawfoot tub and marble shower. Other bedrooms include en suite bathrooms as well.
