The nearly 10,000-square-foot home on the Chickahominy River and 10 to 12 cars — possibly including a 1968 Mustang and several older Corvettes — are up for grabs as part of a court-ordered division of the owners’ assets.

The auction for the property will be on June 24 at the mansion, 201 Four Islands Trail in Lanexa (about 40 miles outside of Richmond). The owners are Bruce and Kathy Evers, according to county records.

The riverfront home sits on a 1.8-acre lot in The Colonies subdivision and has an assessed value of $1.2 million.

It has a total of 7.5 bathrooms and between five and 10 bedrooms. There’s also a pool, waterslide, a pool house and a dock with powerboat and jet ski lifts.

 imageThe Colonies is a large, wooded, family friendly neighborhood on Chickahominy River right at the border of James City County. In the mood for a nice dinner at the Blue Heron restaurant? The water taxi will pick you up at your dock and ferry you there and back for a fun evening of riverfront dining.

Enjoy outdoor living at its best for family and friends! Premier setting on 2 adjoining lots on deep water Diascund Creek at the mouth of Chickahominy River, this property provides peaceful, expansive water views and endless outdoor recreation. The house has a dock with 3 power boat lifts and 3 jet ski lifts, electricity, water and a large upper deck for sunning and sunset cocktails. The water depth at the dock is 12-15 feet so your teens can jump off the upper deck for big splashes. Pontoon boating, power boating, kayaks, canoes, jet skis, waterskiing, tubing—do it all right from your dock. And fishing!
