RICHMOND, Va. — A two-block stretch of Monument Avenue at the top of the Fan now boasts two million-dollar mansions on the market.

Within days of a $1.72 million listing a block away and across the street, a 13-room home at 2609 Monument Ave. has been put up for sale for $2.39 million.

The 6,200-square-foot home is being sold by James C. and Cynthia S. Mabry IV, who purchased it in 2007 for $2.12 million, according to city property records.

The home’s family room has built-in bookshelves to the ceiling and French doors.

James Mabry was named in August as executive vice president of investor relations and mergers and acquisitions for South State Corp., a bank holding company that includes Columbia, South Carolina-based South State Bank. He was previously managing director of Keefe, Bruyette & Woods, an investment bank with offices downtown.

The Mabrys plan to relocate from Richmond to Charleston, South Carolina, according to a press release.

The home was listed Oct. 22 by Ceci Amrhein-Gallasch and Bill Gallasch of Joyner Fine Properties. A no-show request kept it off the Central Virginia Regional Multiple Listing Service until Nov. 3.

The six-bedroom, 4½-bathroom brick home spans 2½ stories. It includes a library with red-painted wooden paneling, an updated kitchen by Custom Kitchens with new heartwood floors, a two-car heated garage and a carriage house used as guest quarters.

Amrhein-Gallasch said the house is unique for the size of its quarter-acre lot, as well as architectural features on both the building and carriage house.
