The Property

Welcome to Ferncliffe, an iconic Bristol landmark! Once a simple farmhouse built on a hill in 1761 to overlook farmland down to the Bay, the grand Victorian era tower was added in 1882. With 11 rooms, mostly with hardwood floors, the entry is into a 19th-century foyer with a magnificent staircase and architecturally significant and crafted woodwork. The living room on the ground floor of the tower has a marble fireplace and leads back into a formal dining room, a charming study with fireplace, a kitchen with loads of storage which opens to a family room, and a half bath w/laundry. The primary bedroom and bath suite on the second floor has a marble fireplace.

Another full bath and two more bedrooms on this level, one leading to a wood-railed porch overlooking the grounds, and the other with a corner fireplace. The finished third floor is anything you want it to be including more bedrooms, artist’s studio, study, office, potential 1/2 bath, and storage. The tower room w/wood stove has views which, on a clear day, you can almost see forever! There is also a rear covered porch, and the grounds include a brick patio, garden shed, and room to build a garage. The covered porch in the front is perfect to watch the world go by on Hope Street as you sip your morning coffee. This house is all about many beautiful spaces filled with Bristol history and charm. Come see and make it your own.
