Franklin Street Gem - Truly one of a kind home in Downtown Bristol, 1848 Greek Revival School house, then American Legion Hall, is riddled with Bristolian History. It under went a glorious conversion in 1998, designed to be reminiscent of a NYC loft w/ wide open spaces, whimsical & utilitarian by de...sign, while preserving natural history. Featured 3x on the Bristol Historic Society Tour, noting it was made from âgranite gathered from the waterfront docks along Thames Street & named after one of the original proprietors, Nathanial Oliver. The 1st floor, originally 2 classrooms, was opened to a Great Room w/ high ceilingsâ. A small, well appointed kitchen & deck were added. âOriginal doors, woodwork, light fixtures, Star of David window & tin ceilings were restored.â A custom, 2 story stairway was added along with 2 bedrooms & full bath. The lower level, once the entertainment area for the Legionaries, was converted to an office suite w/ bathroom, bedroom & laundry room. The residence sits on an 1/4+ acre lot, once the former school yard, now offers a park like setting w/ beautiful plantings, vegetable garden, stonewalls, patio, & tree ouse. The front gardens & private hedges make the front porch one of the most enjoyed areas used by the current owner. Located just off Hope Street near locally owned restaurants & shops, one block from Independence Park, boat launch, beach & the start of the East Bay Bike Path, running through Colt State Park to E. Prov. Not in Historic District. Continue reading
