The Henry Sanford House built in 1852 is a charming Greek Revival cottage with lovely period woodwork and mouldings, wood and pine floors, high ceilings, and plenty of space to move around inside. Fabulous location in historic Bristol on a quiet one-way street and just a stone’s throw to the Harbor and two little beaches. An easy walk, too, to the downtown shops, restaurants, library, and post office. Lovely front entrance hall from street leading to living room, formal dining room, study, full bath with tub, and a large old-fashioned eat-in kitchen which has a mudroom entry and a walk-in pantry. The second floor is accessed by a steep staircase and has three bedrooms and a full bath with shower stall. Basement is full height with laundry, workshop, and storage. Roof is 5 years old and the gas boiler is 14 years old. Off street parking. The property abuts a 10 foot wide easement to the south which owner mows and has the right to pass over by foot and by car. The house was moved to this location from Smith Street (which no longer exists) in 1919 and placed on a new foundation at that time. It has been in the same family since it was built in 1852.

Tucked away on a peninsula in beautiful Narragansett Bay, Bristol is a charming seaside town offering a wonderful quality of life at a relaxed pace. Surrounded by 15 miles of shoreline, this area has a reputation for having one of the best coastlines for sailing enthusiasts. Bristol is also known as one of the most patriotic towns in the United States, right down to its red, white, and blue traffic lines down the middle of Main Street. It hosts the annual Bristol Fourth of July Parade, which is the oldest, continuous Fourth of July celebration in the nation. Bristol’s geography, as a peninsula between Narragansett Bay and Mount Hope Bay, makes the climate more moderate than most New England communities; warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.
