Description

With all its iconic elegance, this rare home is an architectural gem in the crown of one of Bristol's most sought-after historic districts. This could be a once in a lifetime opportunity to own an historic home on the idyllic, tree-lined Holston Avenue. This grand home was built around 1906 by Riley Stone of Stone Lumber Company. This home has only been owned by 3 families in its over 100-year history. Two generations of Stones lived in this prestigious home, until purchased by the Realtor, Jim Dougherty in 1960 and ultimately its current owner, Dr. & Mrs. Tiller. You could be the 4th steward of this lovely home. The homes' Greek Revival architecture are attributed to Clarence Kearfott. He was Bristol's most prolific designer and one of Bristol's earliest practicing architects. In true Greek Revival style, this home has symmetry, proportion, simplicity, and elegance. One of the signature elements of Greek Revival architecture is its imposing and easily identifiable painted white fluted columns with Ionic details. The over 800 sq. ft. covered wrap around front porch is in keeping with the original style. It conveys a natural sense of hospitality. You could spend countless hours here resting, reading and entertaining. As soon as you step into the magnificent foyer, you know you have entered an era of bygone times. The first floor will wow you with original millwork, architectural details and modern comforts. From the elegant entrance hall, you can enter the beautiful formal banquet size dining room that will accommodate all your guests and your oversized pieces of furniture. Also off the entry foyer is an expansive parlor with stunning fireplace and matching built-ins for visiting with guests. Both rooms are perfect entertaining spaces. Also off the foyer in the left hallway is a fabulously sunny library with 2 large rooms, built-ins and a beautiful fireplace. The striking kitchen is accessed from the back of the home, right foyer hallway or off the dining room. It has been meticulously updated and is the perfect kitchen for cooking with family or friends with its gourmet range and double ovens. Entertaining around the 2-tier island with under counter beverage fridge and prep sink will be a breeze with room for all. White cabinets with upper lighted display cabinets, granite countertops and subway backsplash finish off the timeless styling. Also included with the kitchen is the sunlit breakfast room, butler's pantry, regular pantry and back servants staircase to the second floor. As you ascend the beautiful center staircase in the foyer, you will find 5 very spacious bedrooms,3 full baths, and a study. The upstairs provides very comfortable living quarters, which include the primary bedroom with double closets, beautifully remodeled ensuite bath, 4 more spacious bedrooms, 2 more updated bathrooms and a study. You rarely find these, but there is a handy dandy laundry chute up there. The finished third floor has an extra-large rec room, complete with a pool table and tons of closets/storage rooms. Could be a 6th bedroom. Such a fun room! Moving down to the walk-out basement you will find finished and unfinished space. The den/office has warm wood paneling, fireplace, craft/canning/storage room with tons of cabinets and 2 more storage rooms. Across the back of the house is a den, half bath, large laundry and enclosed porch with lots of sunny windows. There are several closets with tons of storage in that area. The back of the home leads to the beautiful backyard. The home is situated on 2 lots making room for peace and quiet, pets or family fun. There is a huge patio, brick bbq, fenced area for privacy, lovely landscaping, garage and a 2 bay carport. This stately home is not only filled with grandeur and perfect for entertaining but offers you a very comfortable lifestyle. This is a must see! You will be captivated by its historic charm, spacious rooms and stunning architectural details. Make your appointment today!
