The Property

PLACED UNDER PURCHASE NEGOTIATION, PRE-AUCTION…  Welcome to Rivers Bend, a one-of-a-kind estate with over 1,200 linear feet of frontage on the beautiful James River in Goochland County near Richmond, VA. A blend of Palladian and Lowland architecture, this expansive estate is grand, graceful and private with plenty of space to roam on its 24 acres. The two-story Property has 4 bedrooms, 3 full and 1 half baths, including a large Master wing. A solarium with soaring 22-ft ceilings is the centerpiece of the main living areas, while a study, music room, family room and home theater add many places to gather with family and friends.

Outdoors, the Property has several outbuildings for storage and amusement, including a children’s playhouse with electricity, a tool house, and paddocks and shelter for horses. Two octagonal pergolas with heart pine columns and redwood timbers echo the shape of the observatory that graces the top of the main residence. The landscaping and plantings are a masterpiece as well, with a fountain, water garden, and koi pond in addition to a raised-bed English vegetable garden, grape vines and an orchard with over 60 apple, cherry, pear, fig and stone fruit trees. All plantings are maintained with an extensive irrigation system using water pumped from the Kanawah Canal. Boating, rafting and water sports are easily accessible via the James River, which borders the property; 9 islands on the river totaling 3 acres also convey with the estate.

The Community

CROZIER, VA. An unincorporated community located approximately 30 minutes outside of Richmond, VA, Crozier is bordered on the south by the James River. The river, as well as the adjacent Kanawah Canal, were once primary routes for the transport of Ohio Valley produce, but recreation and relaxation are more common uses for the waterways today. Many stretches of the James offer rapids and pools perfect for fishing or whitewater rafting, but canoeing, kayaking and swimming are also enjoyed during the warm spring and summer months.

Located within Goochland County, Crozier maintains the benefits of small town life while having access to the amenities of a larger municipality; indeed, many executives from the West Creek Business Park make their homes in the area for that reason. Corporate headquarters for Capital OneFarm Bureau of Virginia and Performance Food Group as well as Hallmark Youth Care and CarMax are located in the area, bringing jobs and economic opportunity to the region. Property in Crozier tends to the rural, with many homes boasting acreage enough to enjoy small-scale farming or equestrian pursuits uniquely suited to the landscape and history of western Virginia.

The Location

RICHMOND, VA. The capital of the Commonwealth of Virginia and the center of the Richmond Metropolitan Statistical Area, Richmond was incorporated in 1742 and is currently the fourth-most populous city in Virginia. Briefly settled in 1609 by English colonists from Jamestown, the city has a rich history, including hosting Patrick Henry’s famous “Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death” speech in 1775. After the Revolutionary War, Richmond became a center for both transportation and innovation: the Kanawah Canal was designed by George Washington to circumvent the rapids at the city center and move goods from flat-bottomed river boats to ocean-faring ships.

Driven mostly by law, finance and government, Richmond’s economy is anchored by governmental agencies from federal to local branches as well as legal and banking firms. Dominion Energy (formerly Dominion Resources) and WestRock, both Fortune 500 companies, are headquartered in Richmond, and the city also houses the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit and the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond. Culturally, Richmond has always been rich: Thomas Jefferson, Edgar Allan Poe, Ellen Glasgow, Tom Wolfe, and David Baldacci are just a few of the literary minds born and/or raised in the area, and five separate and storied performing arts companies provide more public entertainment from ballet to opera.
