A home for entertaining on Harbour Island


Berkshire Hathaway HSNFR

As you cross the bridge onto Harbour Island you’ll come to Bristol Place, an oak lined street with 12 homes set directly on the Intracoastal Waterway. With 210 feet of Intracoastal bulkhead, this home enjoys panoramic views of the waterway, clear views of nature preserve sanctuary on the other side and endless evenings of gorgeous sunsets.

This beautiful estate home at 121 Bristol Place was custom built with concrete masonry construction and features 9,489 square feet of expertly designed interiors that accommodates both casual and formal living space.

The first floor features a grand foyer entryway opening to the living room with 22’ high ceilings that looks out across the pool and onto the waterway, a separate wing with library/office and beautifully appointed master suite retreat, spacious dining room, wine cellar, and butler’s pantry leading into a fabulous chef’s kitchen with two center islands and casual dining space, the heart of the home. The kitchen opens to the family room and large, screened lanai for outside dining and enjoying the pool and waterway views.

The upstairs living areas have been the favorite part of the home for the grandchildren growing up. There is the large game room, flex room that leads into a theater snack bar – a great place to pick up snacks before entering the 20 x 30 media room, complete with recliners and seating for 13, and three en-suite bedrooms.

The separate waterfront guest cottage – complete with kitchen, breakfast area, one bedroom and bath – is ideal for any guest, parent, or a millennium child who won’t leave home.

Across the street in a protected waterway is a 60-foot floating concrete boat dock that provides nearly instant access to the ICW.

To say this house is made for entertaining is an understatement. With 12 grandchildren, and having been host parents to 7seven international high school students over the years, the owners have experienced more than their share of birthday parties, sleepovers, engagement parties and prom picture parties. They also collect hand-blown, hand-painted, glass European Christmas ornaments and each season, which begins in October, they host one or more holiday charity events. Where else can you see 25 themed Christmas trees all in one home?

121 Bristol Place is represented by Berkshire Hathaway HSNFR and listed by Susan Froman. The property is offered at $4,295,000.
