HENRICO COUNTY, Va. — A riverfront farm near Rocketts Landing has hit the market in a rare eight-figure listing. Chatsworth, a 477-acre property just south of the neighboring Tree Hill Farm, which has been proposed for a major mixed-use development, was listed last Monday for $23.8 million. Fronting the river with views of the city skyline, Chatsworth encompasses 6710, 6720 and 6800 Osborne Turnpike and consists of two parcels: a 277-acre tract owned by Vail Family LLC, and a 200-acre parcel owned by Availand Inc.

The larger parcel’s owning LLC was formed in 1995, and the land was previously owned by Anne Warriner Vail et als, according to Henrico County property records. Availand Inc. purchased the smaller parcel in 2004 from Southern Ice Company Inc.

The property was listed by Susie Blanton of Long & Foster. She declined to comment on the record for this story.

In addition to farmland, the larger parcel includes a two-story brick colonial house built in 1940 and an adjacent cottage. The property has about 280 acres of mature hardwood forests and features one mile of frontage along the river and the turnpike.
