Historic 4BR, 2BA S Bristol Anodyne House – Harbor Views, Sprawling Gardens

  • 4 bedrooms
  • 2 bathrooms


Built in 1879 by Captain Elliot Gamage, this 4BR, 2BA South Bristol Anodyne House (sleeps 9) offers harbor views in a sleepy village setting. Wander your flower-filled garden, stroll 150 ft. To the shore, and walk minutes to the village center. INSIDE THE HOUSE Pull into the driveway with parking for 2 cars, then follow a graveled path to a deck at the front of the house. Step into an entryway and turn right to find the den, furnished with a desk, two side chairs and a comfy couch. This room also has access to a bath with a standing shower. Left off the entry, a cozy living area has seating for 5 between matching armchairs and a floral pattern couch. Enjoy group chit-chats, or grab a novel from the book-filled shelves and snuggle up beside the brick fireplace. The kitchen is just off the living area, equipped with a gas stove/oven, microwave, and dishwasher. Hardwood floors and white cabinets flow throughout this well-equipped cooking space. Steps away, there’s seating for 6 in a dining area with an antique-style wooden table. Stairs from the front door lead up to the bedrooms, each sharing access to a guest bathroom with a shower/tub combo and pretty pink tilework. The 1st guest bedroom is situated on the left of the stairs and has a twin-size bed. Directly opposite, the 2nd bedroom has a full-size bed. Going around the staircase, there’s a 3rd guest bedroom featuring a full-size bed on a dark wooden frame. Directly opposite, the master bedroom also has a full-size bed along with a private rooftop patio offering gorgeous harbor views. In the mornings, it’s the ideal spot to sip coffee and watch the boats on the water. In the evenings, gather for meals in a screened-in porch with a 4-seater dining table. The house also has a beautiful flower-filled backyard with a large lawn, vegetable garden and hen house with chickens. THE LOCATION Stroll steps from your front door to reach the waterfront overlooking the harbor. Sit back and watch the boats come in, or launch kayaks straight onto the water and explore the coastline along Christmas Cove. Just a 20-minute drive away is Pemaquid Point Lighthouse – dating back to 1835. Climb to the top of the tower for panoramic ocean views, then check out the Fisherman’s Museum - once serving as the keeper's living quarters. Later, drive minutes to Pemaquid Beach Park for leisurely strolls along its crescent-shaped white sand beach. As you might expect, the local dining scene is big on seafood. Stroll just 2 minutes for fresh lobster and steamed clams at Harborside Grocery & Grill. Or hop in the car and drive 6 minutes to Coveside. Order fish tacos and crab cakes while sipping ice-cold drinks on their outdoor deck. THE TURNKEY ADVANTAGE Our property is TurnKey Rental Certified.
