Two months after buying what turned out to be the second-priciest home to change hands last year, a local couple was back at the top of the list of area residential real estate deals last month, this time on the seller side.
Matthew and Taryn White, whose off-market purchase of another West End home in November ended up topping that month’s previously reported sales, unloaded their previous house at 108 Penshurst Road in a $2.5 million deal that closed Jan. 13.
The sale came in above their asking price of $2.1 million. The 5,000-square-foot house in Windsor Farms was listed in early October and went under contract about a week later.
City property records list the buyers as Tyler and Jocelyn Bradshaw. They were represented by Katherine Hill with Shaheen, Ruth, Martin & Fonville Real Estate.
The Whites listed the home with SRMF’s Rebecca Winters, who was the listing agent on 206 Virginia Ave., the house they purchased in November for $3.2 million from Rick and Sarah Gates. Hill had represented the Whites in that deal, which ended up at No. 2 among the priciest home sales of 2021.
Reached Tuesday, Winters said she would not comment on the Penshurst sale. A call to Hill was not returned.
The Whites purchased the house in 2013 for $1.2 million, property records show. The city most recently assessed the half-acre property at $1.7 million.
Totaling five bedrooms and five bathrooms, the 90-year-old house was built in 1932 and was renovated in 2015 by Mark Franko.
Three of the bedrooms and bathrooms are on the second floor, including a primary bedroom with a walk-in closet and a bathroom with a coffee nook and waterfall shower. The other two bedrooms are on the third floor, and the first-floor living room has a wet bar. The property also includes a brick and bluestone patio, screened porch and detached shed.
While the sale unloaded the home for the Whites, the couple they bought their new house from – Rick and Sarah Gates – also placed on January’s top sales list with their purchase of 9 River Road, a 3,800-square-foot house across from the Country Club of Virginia that, at $1.7 million, came in at No. 3 on the list.
SRMF’s Winters represented the Gates family again in that deal, while Phillip Skaggs and Page George with Maison Real Estate Boutique represented the seller.
Coming in at No. 2 was 5227 Cary Street Road, a 5,600-square-foot house that sold for $2 million. SRMF’s Scott Shaheen and Scott Ruth had that listing, and Sarah Jarvis with One South Realty Group represented the buyer.
Rounding out the top-five list, according to the Central Virginia Regional Multiple Listing Service, was a tie with two deals at $1.7 million: 12 Oak Lane, with SRMF’s Leigh Shobe on the seller side and Elizabeth Price with The Steele Group | SIR representing the buyer; and 217 Colony Lake Drive in Henrico, with Long & Foster agents Pam Diemer representing the seller and Ronald Evans representing the buyer.
