Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty Lists Chafee Estate

Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty proudly brings 1128 Ives Road to market. Listed at $5,950,000, the legacy property is owned by the family of late Senator John Chafee. The property is represented by Judy Chace, Broker/Co-Owner and Amy I. Doorley-Lucas, Sales Associate: both of Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty.

John Chafee was an American politician who served as an officer in the United States Marine Corps, as the 66th Governor of Rhode Island, as the Secretary of the Navy, and as a United States Senator. His son, Lincoln Chafee was mayor of Warwick from 1993 to 1999, a United States Senator from 1999 to 2007, and the 74th Governor of Rhode Island from 2011 to 2015.

A unique dwelling designed by Thomas Handasyd Cabot Jr. of Boston, the home sits on high ground with sweeping views of conservation land of rolling meadows, a salt marsh, and a bending river. Set atop a slope to maximize the scenery, the home features six bedrooms, three bathrooms and just over 2,000 square feet of living space. Also on the property, a gambrel-roofed barn topped by a charming cupola and four horse stalls below.
