This much admired colonial is one of the most distinctive houses in Bristol Highlands. Built in 1905 by Charles Foster, this vintage shingle-style retreat is sited on an acre of horticultural paradise with outstanding specimens, including an American Linden tree (one of the biggest & oldest of its kind). The home was extensively renovated in 2016 with an addition of a solarium and a new Ian Thompson kitchen, updated mechanicals, Kevin Baker designed mill stone patio, mahogany decking with outside shower, redwood pergola, etc. ( contact agent for further details of "special features" & upgrades ). Further renovations by a new owner would be well worth it because of great surrounding value, & the home's water view location. Just steps to the shores of Narragansett Bay, this property has westerly views & fabulous sunsets throughout the year. And the neighborhood offers the homeowner an optional membership for beach/dock access, clay tennis court, clubhouse activities, children's programs, etc. Plus the 14 mile bike path from Providence to the historic downtown of Bristol is accessible within the neighborhood.
