Description

RiversBend is an expansive estate designed by Charles Aquino to be a timeless blend of Jeffersonian-Palladian grandeur and American low-country waterfront splendor. The construction, led by Steve Berg, was completed in 1992. The southern elevation faces the James River and the historic Kanawha Canal. The 900-foot section of the Kanawha Canal on the property is the last remaining section it west of Richmond which is still at its original 30-foot width. *** As you make your grand arrival to RiversBend, you are led to the home by a meticulously hand-laid, pink granite cobblestone driveway, completed in 2007. The owners also redesigned the brick retaining walls to curve around the circular driveway for an aesthetic flow as you transition from the driveway to the property. Take in the magnificence of the solid mahogany front door with a Virginia Metalcrafters brass lockset. Upon entering the home, youre immediately struck by the beauty of the antique heart pine floors. The floors were re-sewn in 1992 from beams of an old Shockoe Bottom tobacco warehouse built in 1840. True to Jeffersonian architecture, RiversBend has a receiving room and formal dining room on either side of the foyer. Whether you are entertaining a small dinner party or hosting a large charity event, RiversBend has both the intimacy and space you need. For RiversBend to fully capture the Jeffersonian charm, Charles Aquino needed to incorporate Jeffersons triple-sash window. Mr. Aquino called Pella and ordered twenty-two triple hung windows, the last batch that Pella ever made. Every living room and bedroom at RiversBend has French doors opening onto a terrace, extending your living space into the breathtaking outdoor scenery. There are five masonry, wood-burning fireplaces at RiversBend, with four of those fireplaces currently using gas-inserts. An elevator shaft can easily be installed, if desired, to serve the first and second floors. *** As you walk the grounds, you will likely overlook the five mile, forty-zone, irrigation piping installed in 2007. The irrigation spans the entire property, with the exception of the horse paddock. If you are deep in thought, need to clear your mind, or have a tough decision to make, take a stroll through 1/8-mile, cobblestone meditation labyrinth, which was designed to resemble a similar one at Chartres Cathedral, France. The monks would walk the winding path while doing their rosaries. It is thought that by continually changing directions, you calm your mind and change your energy. If youre looking for somethin
