Couple gets more space in high-price Goochland to Richmond mansion swap
RICHMOND, Va. — A local couple’s recent move from a Goochland County estate to a property in Richmond’s West End produced the two highest-priced residential sales for the month of October – and it’s not their first time on the top of the area’s monthly home sales list.
The buyers in October’s highest-priced sale – Travis and Shannon Weisleder, who purchased a 75-year-old West End home for $1.95 million – are also the sellers in the month’s second-highest deal: a 21st century Manakin-Sabot estate that sold the same day, Oct. 15, for $1.89 million.
The couple, whose previous home near the University of Richmond topped the home sales list in January, moved from that house to the Manakin-Sabot estate, located at 745 W. River Road. After 14 months there, they bought the home in the West End – an 18-room house at 101 Kennondale Lane, off Cary Street Road near the Country Club of Virginia.
Travis Weisleder is the president and CEO of Interactive Financial Marketing Group, a company that provides marketing services and sales leads to car dealers. After selling the company in 2007, he purchased it back earlier this year.
