RICHMOND, Va. — A Rocketts Landing condo once eyed by Steven Spielberg topped the list of the highest-priced home sales in the Richmond area in September.

The penthouse-style condo in the Village at Rocketts Landing led the month’s top sales at $1.35 million. The 12-room, 4,500-square-foot home – unit 609 at 4820 Old Main St. – sold Sept. 30 below its latest listing price of $1.77 million.

The seller, Kevin J. Kennedy Sr., had previously listed the property for $2.35 million in late 2013. The property didn’t sell and was taken off market for several months before it was relisted June 1 at the reduced price.

Listing agent Tiffany Stevens, of Keller Williams Realty, said the property drew interest from out-of-towners relocating to Richmond who were accustomed to more contemporary, high-rise properties in larger cities. The condo was overhauled by former Richmond designer Todd Yoggy.

“It is a very unique property,” Stevens said. “There’s nothing else in the Richmond market like it. It had leather wall coverings from Italy on some of the walls. Everything was just to the nines.”

Despite the out-of-town interest, the unit ultimately went to a local physician, said Lucy Williams, who represented the buyer. Williams, an agent with The Steele Group | Sotheby’s International Realty, declined to identify the buyer, whose name had yet to be added to Henrico County property records as of Tuesday.

Williams did say the buyer, who resides in western Henrico, intended to use the condo as a second residence.
