Located in the Bristol Highlands neighborhood, Pen Marc’h is a custom-designed New England Shingle-style Bungalow designed by local architect David Andreozzi. Set at the top of a circular drive, the home perfectly blends contemporary and traditional styles. Composed of custom masonry and millwork both inside and out, Pen Marc’h features a river rock foundation, black walnut floors, and mahogany details.
Walk up to the recessed entry with arched rafters and through the mahogany Dutch door. Natural light cascades down from the cupola illuminating the custom staircase. The great room is an entertainer’s dream with three sections outlined by the differing patterns on the beadboard ceiling. The gourmet kitchen features soapstone counters, custom cabinetry, a farmer’s sink, and an oversized island. Dine with friends and family beside the wall-to-wall windows providing picturesque views of the estate grounds stretching to the bay. The living room boasts a wood-burning fieldstone fireplace and a large built-in entertainment center. From the great room, you can enter a quiet library featuring mahogany shelves and a gas fireplace with a soapstone hearth, or walk outside and breathe in the air off the water.
The bluestone veranda sits underneath a Spanish cedar pergola, while the bluestone terrace below is surrounded by fieldstone walls and manicured gardens.
On the upper level, the master bedroom suite enjoys a Carrera marble bathroom with a whirlpool tub, dressing room, laundry room, and a private balcony overlooking the grounds and bay. This level also provides a guest suite with a cathedral ceiling and private full bath.
On the walkout lower level you will find a family room, as well as a third bedroom with an ensuite bath and walk-in closet. The spacious family room area is plumbed for an additional bath, while a fourth bedroom could also be added.
The Bristol Highlands neighborhood offers a private beach, a dock, tennis court, and a clubhouse. Resting on over an acre of land, the home’s sprawling property is bordered by the East Bay Bike Path, allowing you to explore the shoreline from Providence to Newport. Stroll down historic Hope Street in downtown Bristol and enjoy the local boutiques and restaurants. The home is centrally located from both Newport and the arts and culture of Downtown Providence.
