Waterfront home has panoramic views of bay and bridge

This week's featured home is in the Bristol Ferry section of Portsmouth, directly on the water


Tucked in the Bristol Ferry neighborhood in Portsmouth is a large, waterfront home with one of the largest lots in the area. With 1.15 acres right on Narragansett Bay, enjoy sweeping views from this Cape Cod style home.

This solidly built home at 120 Bayview Ave. has been in the same family since it was built in 1954, and this is the first time it is available for sale — a rare opportunity.

With more than 3,000 square feet of living space, there is plenty of room for a growing family or extended family and friends. The bones in this home are solid, and with some updates and personal touch, it could be the envy of the neighborhood.

Beautiful hardwood flooring and a pretty stone fireplace complement the mesmerizing water view from the living room.

The septic system for the four-bedroom house was installed in 2007, and the 200-amp electrical system was upgraded then as well. There are three full bathrooms, a rarity in a home built in the 1950s.

Although the home is on the water, the owners say the basement has never been wet. No weather event, whether it be a hurricane or a 100-year flood has resulted in water in the basement.

The house is in direct view of the Mt. Hope Bridge. Sit back and watch boats traverse the bay and see the twinkling lights on the bridge at night rom the privacy of your own home.

The home is available for the asking price of $799,000. For more information, contact Stephanie Basile, with RE/MAX Professionals, at 401-465-3975.
