The local high-end home sale market closed out 2018 with a deal that topped $2 million and another tied to a member of a prominent Richmond family.
Starting in Goochland County with the month’s third-highest-price deal, the 6,400-square-foot home at 311 Randolph Square Parkway in the Randolph Square neighborhood sold for $1.55 million.
The seller was Rob Ukrop, a former Richmond Kickers standout whose family ran the Ukrop’s Super Markets grocery chain and who is part of the soccer team’s new ownership group.
The six-bedroom, Colonial-style home sits on 2.5 acres and was listed in May with a $1.79 million asking price. The sale closed Dec. 28.
Ryan Medlin of Re/Max Commonwealth represented the buyers, listed in county records as Frederick Scott Myers and Camma Brooks Myers.
Jeanette Mock of The Steele Group | Sotheby’s International Realty represented the sellers.
Built in 2004, the Colonial-style home includes a first-floor master suite, three-car garage, patio and heated swimming pool. The home also has a daylight basement that includes a kitchen, bedroom and bathroom.
Mock said there were a few showings before two simultaneous offers came in.
“I think not just the lot itself, but being back in the south section of Randolph Square Parkway makes the house extremely attractive to people who don’t want to be far into Goochland County but do want to maintain privacy in the look and feel of the neighborhood,” she said.
December’s top local residential sale was the $2.07 million deal for 6300 Three Chopt Road in the West End. The seven-bedroom, 6,400-square-foot home was also the fourth-highest-priced sale in the Richmond market for all of 2018.
The buyers, Charlie Hartt and Nancy Gottwald Hartt, were represented by Katherine Hill of Shaheen, Martin, Ruth & Fonville Real Estate and Melanie Crittenden of the Steele Group | Sotheby’s International Realty. Hill previously was with The Steele Group when she and Crittenden took the listing, but joined SMRF prior to the sale. The sellers were represented by Debbie Gibbs of The Steele Group.
