GOOCHLAND COUNTY, Va. — It’s the palace that coal built. River Run Manor, a 60-acre Goochland estate built for a member of one Richmond’s most well-known families, was put up for sale last week with a price tag of $7.9 million.

The property is being sold by the estate of William B. Massey, a longtime Richmond coal executive whose grandfather founded A.T. Massey Coal Co., more recently known as Massey Energy.

Massey, who died in March, built the home at 2421 River Road West with his late wife Edith Starke Massey.

With a main house of about 16,000 square feet, River Run Manor stands as one of the largest residential properties in the Richmond market. And if it sells anywhere near its listing price, it would easily be the highest-priced residential sale in the Richmond area recently.
