Old Gun + Cherokee Roads // City of Richmond + Chesterfield
Old Gun Road and Cherokee Road run along the border of Chesterfield’s and Richmond’s border with the James River providing a picturesque and winding passage through some of the most valuable real estate ‘South of the James.’
Beginning in earnest west of Huguenot Road and ending at the intersection with Robious Road, this corridor is a mix of many architectural styles from many different eras with no one dominant look or feel. Large brick ranches and colonials from the 1970′s and 80′s, multiple contemporaries (especially along the River), Southern Living styled homes (Clark’s Forge + Bellona Arsenal) as well as multiple acre estates all blend to create an eclectic mix.
Old Gun Road, named for the Civil War cannon batter located along an rather curvy stretch of the road (sometimes referred to as Bellona Arsenal,) has seen more new construction than the more mature Cherokee Road, and is home to several of the most spectacular estates in the Metro. Trinity Episcopal School, which is a private high school, is located in this corridor and educates many of the children in the area.
Probably the most well known subdivision in the area, Reeds Landing, is a gated community close to the intersection of Cherokee and Old Gun, and is home to an interesting mix of Colonial and Contemporary styles on large 1+ acre lots.
