Located near the charming village of Christmas Cove, on Poorhouse Cove with excellent views across the cove to High Island and the upper branch of Johns Bay, this exceptional saltwater farm in South Bristol offers a historic residence on 66+/- acres with 7,922+/- feet of waterfront. The four-bedroom Colonial house, built circa 1810, overlooks lawn and fields that roll dramatically to the water, and has appealing original features such as hand-carved rope and scallop motif wood trim in the living room, fireplaces and wide-board wood floors. The property has several outbuildings, including a historic, pegged, post-and-beam barn. Expertly designed and well-maintained perennial gardens define outdoor living areas, and there is a heated in-ground swimming pool and a tidal dock on the southern end of the property. The land directly across the cove is included with the property, ensuring that a portion of the views are permanently protected.
