Rare opportunity to own a historic gem, one of the most distinctive homes in Bristol. First time offered in over 25 years, Ferncliffe, Thomas Peck/James J. Tobin House c.1761. The ground floor consists of a grand entry hall, charming study, formal living and dining rooms, bright kitchen that is open to the family room, a mudroom, half bath and laundry. The second and third floor contain ample bedroom space, two spacious bathrooms, and bonus space with many possibilities. Tobin’s daughter named the house for the plants that lined the waterside cliff, as the property originally stretched down to Narragansett Bay. The home is filled with character and evolved from a simple farmhouse in 1760 to its current glory, with Victorian designs and additions. Most notably the mid-Victorian flaring bracketed roof, corner pilasters, a bracketed front entrance and a two-story bay window. Late Victorian additions include the three-story tower and full width front porch with strapwork. The exterior stops visually at 1890 and the interior represents the continuation of its evolution, showing elements of several different architectural periods. The home is ready for its new owner to continue this evolution. All this grandeur is situated on a large corner lot with a horseshoe driveway, a lovely patio and mature perennial gardens. Located in historic Bristol RI, home to the longest running 4th of July parade in our nation’s history. Easy access to Newport, Providence and Boston.
