Known as the Jonathan Peck, Jr. - Samuel Martin Farmhouse, this is a rare chance to live in a totally charming and very early Bristol house. NOTE: This house comes with three lots which have merged. (Plat 61/Lots 34, 91 & 92.) All three lots totaling 1.55 acres convey with the sale. The seller has begun the process of a subdivision to create at least one buildable lot to front onto Aaron Avenue, leaving about an acre of land with the house fronting onto Hope Street. Built prior to 1721 with an 1840 addition, it has been restored by the owner beginning in 1973 with the help of restoration architect Lombard J. Pozzi. Full of history, beautiful red cedars and a tall stone wall line the long driveway and grass fields surround the house. Wide board pine floors and architectural details are on the interior with a long living room with fireplace and a formal dining room. There is also a first floor den (potential small bedroom), an eat-in kitchen, a full bath, and a laundry room. Steep stairs take you to the second floor with two large bedrooms, one at each end of the house, with a big sitting room with fireplace in the middle. A small single bedroom and a second full bath are also on the second floor.. The basement floor is brick and has a workshop and the utilities. There is an open porch facing south; and on the grounds are flower gardens, a garden shed and an old well house.
