Listed by Allison Dessel

Discover the timeless elegance of one of Bristol’s most alluring historic homes. Built in 1839 by William Henry DeWolf, this stone masterpiece is thought to have been designed by renowned architect Russell Warren. With walls, 28 inches thick, high ceilings, five fireplaces and an open floor plan, the home and surrounding gardens offer gracious living and privacy in the heart of this New England seaport. The property has had only four owners, with the current owners purchasing in 1998 and making thoughtful improvements. The home features a spacious first floor decorated with stylistic cues from the home’s past: an Art Nouveau foyer and dining room, a late Victorian parlor and an Art Deco family room, all with period wainscoting and wallpapers. The kitchen includes an 1858 Chilson dual-oven stove, original tin ceiling, stainless appliances, two pantries and a center island. The home boasts four bedrooms and two full baths on the second floor. The three large rooms of the third floor—including a captivating octagonal room atop the tower with vaulted ceiling, gables and a winter peek at Bristol Harbor—are ideal as additional bedrooms and office space. The property resides on a half-acre of beautiful flower beds, an organic vegetable garden and plantings of raspberries and blueberries. The kitchen overlooks an idyllic courtyard replete with a central fountain where fish frolic in the morning sun. Don’t miss the opportunity to make this rare historical gem your own.
