RICHMOND, Va. — Call it downsizing, Windsor Farms style. Having bought a smaller home – at 6,400 square feet – just a few doors down the street last November, a local couple has listed their previous residence – a 14,400-square-foot Tudor Revival-style mansion – for just under $5 million.

The 21-room home at 4603 Sulgrave Road was listed Feb. 26 for $4.95 million by Peter W. and Judy S. Brown, the same couple who bought the smaller, 17-room home at 4310 Sulgrave Road in November.

That sale, at $1.7 million, was the highest-priced in the Richmond area that month and the eighth-priciest locally in 2015.

Debbie Gibbs of The Steele Group | Sotheby’s International Realty is listing the mansion for the Browns. She said the couple – he a surgeon recently retired from Virginia Surgical Associates – wanted to downsize while remaining in the West End neighborhood.
