      Presenting a very rare property offering in a private setting abreast of 585 feet of elevated, underdeveloped waterfront on the CT River. The site features sweeping views of the river across from state protected Selden Island and Eustasia Islands. Westerly facing sunsets herald summer and seasonal Bald Eagle and Osprey migrations year 'round. Surrounded by the areas most highly valued properties, this site sits outside the flood plain yet includes a waterfront boathouse, launch and a stone lined bulkhead perfect for a dock site. The deep wooded drive enhances the extreme privacy of the residence which opens to spacious elevated meadows on all sides. The local residential zoning is 2 acre min. and this 8 plus acre parcel has never been subdivided. According to the underlying zoning the property qualifies for a free split and an opportunity for 1, 2 or 3 luxury lots and perhaps a fourth. The property is being sold by the executor of the estate of decorated Admiral Irwin Chase Jr. and his wife Winifred Reynolds Chase. Admiral Chase served in the Pacific theater during WWII under Admiral Halsey and was awarded the Silver Star. There are four existing structures on the property: a 1650 sq. ft. Cape Cod residence built in 1750, a boathouse, a three car, two story garage and a screen house and workshop. While these structures are not considered relevant to the highest and best use (and will most likely be moved or restored) the property remains a treasure to the town and area.
