RICHMOND, Va. — With his next home lined up in Hanover County, the buyer of the late Harwood and Louise Cochrane homestead has listed his Stratford Hills residence for $1.75 million.

Retired tobacco executive James H. Starkey III, who purchased the Cochranes’ Walnut Hill country manor house earlier this month for $1.49 million, is selling the contemporary home he had custom-built at 7401 Riverside Drive.

Starkey, a former vice president of Richmond-based tobacco giant Universal Corp., listed the home Nov. 17 with Long & Foster Real Estate agents Marianne and Jeff Donahue, who represented him in the Walnut Hill purchase and when he built the Riverside Drive home in the late 1990s.

The 4,000-square-foot home on a bluff overlooks the James River and features stucco and wood siding, mahogany trim and ironwork designed by local fabricator Charles Yeager. The three-bedroom, four-bathroom house was designed by Chris Fultz, the barbecue-slinging half of Fultz & Singh Architects.

The lower level includes 800 square feet that could be reconfigured to add a fourth bedroom.
