One of the older houses along the West End’s Three Chopt Road corridor was the priciest home sold in the Richmond area last month.

The century-old Rosewood home at 6311 Three Chopt Road sold April 27 for $3.6 million, below its latest list price of $3.95 million.

The 7,400-square-foot house with seven bedrooms and 5½ bathrooms was originally listed last September for $4.25 million. It was relisted Jan. 25 at $3.95 million and went under contract March 21.

City property records list the buyer as a revocable trust that bears the address as its name. The mystery buyer was represented by Rebecca Winters with Shaheen, Ruth, Martin & Fonville Real Estate.

The sellers were Douglas and Debra Krey, who had owned the house since 2010 and listed it with SRMF’s Holly and John Martin. Doug Krey is a senior vice president with hotel chain Hilton.

John Martin said last week he would not comment on the sale. Winters did not return a call seeking comment.

Pine floors and extensive millwork accentuate the house.

Built in 1910, Rosewood was described in the Martins’ listing as one of the first homes built in the Three Chopt area, on one of the larger lots to be found along the corridor near the Country Club of Virginia and the University of Richmond.

The 2.5-acre lot is between Three Chopt and Towana Road, two doors down from where the roads converge. The wooded property has entrances on both sides and effectively hides the house from view along the roads.

The Classic Revival-style, four-level house includes a first-floor suite, sunroom, library, mudroom, and a kitchen and archways designed by local architect Dan Ensminger.

The third floor has been renovated with a family room and three bedrooms. Pine flooring is found throughout the house, which also has a 75-foot front porch and bluestone rear patio.

The three-level house at 6311 Three Chopt is situated within a 2.5-acre lot between Three Chopt and Towana roads.

The Kreys purchased the house in 2010 for $1.8 million. The city assessed the property this year at nearly $2.4 million.

The month’s second-priciest sale was 100 Berkshire Road, a 6,000-square-foot home in Windsor Farms that sold April 20 for $2.42 million, above its March 22 list price of $2.35 million.

Long & Foster agents Leland Klim and Helen Garnett had the listing for sellers Brian and Jennifer Lucas, who purchased the home in 2010 for $1.15 million. Property records list the buyer as Anne Rand, an executive assistant at asset management firm The London Co. She was represented by Rand Properties’ Remington Rand, her husband.
