Real estate agent puts $2.8 million Henrico mansion on market


HENRICO COUNTY, Va. — A western Henrico house built by a member of Richmond’s Massey family is being offered for sale for the first time publicly, by the real estate agent who has called it home for a decade.

The two-story colonial at 9801 Drouin Drive, in the Drouin Hill neighborhood near River and Gaskins roads, hit the market last week for $2.87 million.

The 7,500-square-foot house was listed by its owner, Sue Farrell, an agent with Joyner Fine Properties.

Farrell, who has lived there since 2003, said this is the first public listing for the house, which has previously changed hands through private sales.

She purchased the 5.7-acre property with her late husband, Joseph C. Farrell, former chairman and CEO of The Pittston Co., now known as locally based armored car giant Brink’s Co.

“Joe passed away a couple years ago, and because of its size, I’ve decided to go back into town where Joe and I started and let some new family that can use all this great space come in and enjoy it,” Farrell said, adding that she plans to move to Richmond’s Lockgreen community.
