A rare opportunity to live in one of Bristol’s most distinguished homes, the Jeremiah Diman House c.1794 is located in the heart of historic downtown Bristol on the sought after parade route. Meticulously cared for, this Federal Colonial style home has many original details with period charm and recently refinished wide planked floors and eight fireplaces.
A grand entry foyer with original staircase and tall ceilings leads you to a living room with a hand carved fireplace, and an elegant formal dining room with oversized fireplace and French doors leading out to a private side porch overlooking the colorful gardens. A charming library or sitting room with delft tile fireplace is tucked off the formal rooms. The thoughtfully designed two story addition which was completed around 1980 seamlessly blends with the original antique house. The addition includes an eat-in kitchen with stainless appliances, charming breakfast nook with a cozy fireplace, a home office, and a spectacular sunlit family room with walls of windows overlooking the exquisite gardens.
The wonderfully private fenced yard has been professionally landscaped and is a magical and inviting space for entertaining or to enjoy as a tranquil secluded getaway. The outdoor living space includes a tree canopied blue stone terrace located off the family room and kitchen.
The second level of the home boasts the master suite which includes ample closets, ensuite bath and a charming sitting area with fireplace. The second floor landing is flooded with natural light and has access to two additional bedrooms and two full baths.
Other features of the home include a whole house generator and a one car garage plus off street parking.
This signature home is a short stroll to the Bristol Harbor and East Bay Bike Path. The historic town center is within a few blocks where you can enjoy many wonderful restaurants, cafes, shops and museums. This historic treasure is a half hour to both Seaside Newport and the arts and culture of Downtown Providence.
