A recently listed Chesterfield property is aiming to rein in a horse-enthusiast buyer.
The 26-acre equestrian estate at 12800 Ivey Mill Road hit the market in mid-November at $1.8 million. Charlottesville-based Frank Hardy | Sotheby’s International Realty has the listing.
The property, which is fully fenced for horses, contains a 10-stall barn and 5,000-square-foot house. The single-floor ranch home, built in 2009, has four bedrooms and 3 1/2 bathrooms. A detached two-car garage includes a 1,200-square-foot apartment above it.
County records list the sellers as Norman and June Jones, who purchased the property in 2005 for $298,000. Building improvements made to the property since then have helped the assessed value jump to $949,000.
The property sits about 15 miles west of Petersburg and about 26 miles from downtown Richmond.
Hardy also has another high-dollar listing in the area: 211 Ross Road, a 10,000-square-foot home in Henrico County known as “Fairfield.” It was listed in February for $5.9 million. The price was reduced to $4.9 million before being taken offline this month.
Katherine Leddington of Hardy’s office said the brokerage still has the Fairfield listing but de-listed at the owner’s request. It’s still available for showings. The Georgian plantation home, once owned by a relative of Patrick Henry, had been the highest-priced home on the local market.
Meanwhile, another residential property fit for animals remains on the market. Located northwest of Pocahontas State Park just off Route 288, a former alpaca farm has dropped in price to just below $1 million. The 18-acre property is listed by Paul Collins and Jenn Hart with Coach House Realty and hit the market in June at $1.17 million.
