Elegant Tudor Revival, Richmond
“I think most people who saw the house were intrigued by its Tudor architectural design,” says Sarah Mumford of Long & Foster Real Estate, Inc. in Richmond, who sold the 5-bedroom, 4 ½-bath Tudor revival at 6317 Three Chopt Road. “The exceptional carriage house and Gillette gardens were also particular draws for this unique and beautiful house.” Built a century ago, the property is protected from the street by an ivy espaliered wall and features classic parterre gardens designed by noted 20th-century landscape architect Charles Gillette. It includes a carriage house with full bath, bedroom, living room, dining area and kitchenette, and luxury finishes like a wine cellar and modern amenities. The spacious entrance gallery with marble floor and a soaring tray ceiling connects the formal and informal rooms of the first floor and leads guests toward the veranda and outdoor living area. Sold for $1,250,000. LeeMumford.LFRE.com

“The expansive ocean views from most rooms and the fact that the lot was much wider than a standard North End oceanfront lot made this home very desirable,” says Jonathan Goldman of Leland Real Estate in Virginia Beach, who sold the home at 4604 Ocean Front Ave. in just 14 days. Perched serenely on a wide expanse of lush green lawn that serves as a buffer between the house and the sandy beach beyond, the Colonial-style 4-bedroom features an open porch stretching across its ocean side and a slate terrace surrounded by manicured landscaping.
