Set down a private lane in Bristol Highlands, this magnificent waterfront estate offers four separate homes beautifully sited on the western shore of historic Bristol, Rhode Island overlooking scenic Narragansett Bay. Each of the individual properties provide steps leading to the water, and have been designed to deliver spectacular ocean views from every room.
The landscape design will take your breath away, presenting a wonderland of mature trees, with boulders and blue stone pathways winding through exotic species of evergreens and perennials.
Following a gravel path to the entrance of the main house, you are welcomed into an expansive great room with Mexican tile floors and a wall of oversized picture windows looking out over the water. The connected dining room includes a floor-to-ceiling fireplace and leads into a gourmet kitchen featuring granite countertops, custom cabinetry, and a full butler’s pantry with a walk-in wine fridge. Completing the main level is a half bath and a comfortable family room, while the upper level provides a pair of bedroom suites, each with skylit ceilings and their own private en suite baths. Outside, the multi-level deck is perfect for outdoor entertaining. Relax with guests at one of the many private sitting areas overlooking the bay, or enjoy the stunning infinity edge pool and spa area, offering ample outdoor seating, as well as a cabana with a sauna, bar, and full bath.
The guest cottage supplies over 2000 square feet of living space, highlighted by a spacious great room with high vaulted ceilings, a wood-burning fireplace, and panoramic ocean views. Just off the living room is a convenient kitchenette, while sliding glass doors lead out to a tranquil deck covered by a vine-wrapped pergola. Back inside, the guest house also includes a large bedroom suite with a private full bath and a staircase leading up to an office designed to reflect a ship’s cabin.
In addition, the present owners acquired and designed two adjacent properties for the compound.
