Privacy abounds on this fabulous property just off of Hope Street! The 5 acre parcel is surrounded by stone walls, mature trees and woodlands with the potential to subdivide. The spacious 4 Bed/3 Bath custom home designed by well known Bristol architect Lombard J. Pozzi was built in 1972 as a replica 1790's homestead. The home's interior trim, millwork, wide plank flooring, fireplaces and the exterior facade are true to period. The living room features a fireplace and beamed ceiling, the dining room is charming with corner china cabinets, and the kitchen with stainless appliances, corner desk and large breakfast area has sliders to a deck overlooking the lush and expansive rear yard. The back hall leads to a library/office lined with bookshelves, pantry closet, full bathroom and a great room/studio with cathedral ceiling, beams and a gable window that lets in lots of natural light!
Upstairs, there is an ensuite master with fireplace, two good sized bedrooms and a nursery/guest room. The walk up attic is full height and offers room for storage or expansion. Laundry, workshop, mechanicals and a flex room fill the basement. A newer detached 2 car garage, a small chapel, and a little brick playhouse complete the scene at this idyllic setting.
Tucked away on a peninsula in beautiful Narragansett Bay, Bristol is a charming seaside town offering a wonderful quality of life at a relaxed pace. Surrounded by 15 miles of shoreline, this area has a reputation for having one of the best coastlines for sailing enthusiasts. Bristol is also known as one of the most patriotic towns in the United States, right down to its red, white, and blue traffic lines down the middle of Main Street. It hosts the annual Bristol Fourth of July Parade, which is the oldest, continuous Fourth of July celebration in the nation. Bristol’s geography, as a peninsula between Narragansett Bay and Mount Hope Bay, makes the climate more moderate than most New England communities; warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.
