Not necessarily. Eastern Henrico has a much higher black population.

Based on that and the fact that East and West feel like totally different areas, you'd really have to split Henrico in two to get a more accurate read on the voting patterns and mindset in each IMO.
Here's a link to the Henrico statistics by precinct: 2016 November General

Yeah, it's not as simple as east/west. In the east, Laburnum precinct voted 71% for Hillary, while adjacent Sandston voted 65% for Trump.

I didn't immediately see such a sharp and immediate swing in the west, but look at Tuckahoe and Mooreland compared to, say, Tucker or Dumbarton.

I haven't done the meta data dig after the election but in the primaries Midlothian and other Middle/Upper Middle Class neighborhoods were Kasich or Rubio areas. The vocal Trump supporters were not the country club upper middle class areas - they may have voted for him but may not admit it.

I can affirm this. Rubio carried Midlo by a lot in the primary.

Even countywide in the general, Trump only beat Hillary by 3,000 votes or so, a historically bad performance.

Every conservative I know here (Robious Corridor) either proudly voted for McMullin/Johnson or won't admit their vote for Trump.

So there's not a single suburb in Henrico or Chesterfield that was solidly pro-Trump?

Do the research yourself.

Virginia is becoming more and more liberal as time goes by, just saying.

Trump won in the precincts around Chester in both the primary and the general, but I'm not sure if it fits your criteria:

- It's not particularly close to the metro area's well-regarded private schools
- It's sort of near a country club (The Highlands)...but actual precinct where the CC is was carried by Rubio
- If you want anything more than basic big-box shopping, it's going to be a 20-40 minute drive

Although the voting pattern might match up better for you than other areas in the metro, I have doubts as to whether it qualifies for someone looking for an "affluent" suburb. River's Bend used to be the gem of the area (and perhaps it still is), but the death of the golf course there has caused issues for some of the homeowners looking to sell.
