Former Congressman Christopher Shays's Home is Available for $1.595 Million
Directly on Black Rock Harbor in Bridgeport with a private stretch of waterfront is a circa-1937 Colonial once owned by former Congressman Christopher Shays. The family friendliness starts with the lifestyle offered by this tiny, tony neighborhood that sits on the Bridgeport/Fairfield line. From the house, kids can ride bikes to the local beach or walk to schools, shops and the many yacht clubs nearby. And everyone strolls the curving promenade along the harbor, and to the movie theaters and train station, just 10 minutes away on foot. Inside the 4,500-square-foot home are five bedrooms and four bathrooms, as well as a third-floor office suite with a balcony and a spiral staircase up to a roof deck. James Millington of William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty has the $1,595,000 listing.
