A rare opportunity to live in one of Bristol's most distinguished homes, the Jeremiah Diman House c.1794. Located in the heart of historic downtown on the sought after parade route. Meticulously cared for, this Federal Colonial style home has many original details with period charm including eight fireplaces, carved wood mantles, built-in bookcases and recently refinished wide planked floors. A grand entry foyer with original staircase leads you to the formal rooms. The dining room has French doors leading to a private side porch overlooking the colorful gardens. A two story thoughtfully designed addition completed around 1980 seamlessly blends with the original antique house, it includes an eat in kitchen with stainless appliances, charming breakfast nook with cozy fireplace and a spectacular sunlit family room with walls of windows overlooking the exquisite gardens. The master suite includes ample closets, two bathrooms and a sitting area with fireplace. The wonderfully private fenced yard has been professionally landscaped and is an 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. This signature home is a short stroll to two in town beaches, Bristol Harbour and East Bay Bike Path. The historic town center is within a few blocks were you can enjoy many wonderful restaurants, cafes, shops and museums. A historic treasure!
