Stunning and elegant Tuscan Style villa in the heart of historic Bristol, built in 1850 by famed RI architect Russell Warren. Known today as The Wissing House, the entry is through a magnificent front portico which leads into an enormous central hall. Tall Romanesque doors open to the staircase, oversized doorways open into a double living room connected by a Gothic Style doorway, and also into a dining room for grand entertaining. A pantry with glass cupboards to the ceiling leads to a Euro style kitchen with granite island, stainless appliances, and a cast iron stove for cooking with wood. A rear hallway has two separate mudrooms, which exit out to a private garden. Perfectly proportioned rooms with white painted walls throughout the home are in dramatic contrast to warm wooden floors. The second floor has four bedrooms clustered around a sitting room adjoining a sunroom with an entire wall of windows. There is a full and a half bath on this level as well. The third floor has two more bedrooms, a full bath, and a surprising unfinished area with sunlight streaming in from a south facing dormer, waiting to be made into an artist's studio or a home office. A slate hip-style roof and a perennial garden with a fieldstone wall over 12 feet tall complete this romantic property. All of this is in the center of Bristol's charming downtown dating back to 1680, which today boasts of historic buildings, shops, restaurants, coffee shops, museums, and a beautiful harbor full of boats.
