A downtown Bristol base for home and business


The property at 11 Constitution St. in Bristol’s downtown historic district provides a unique opportunity for a buyer who would like to start or relocate a business, while enjoying the shortest commute to work imaginable: a flight of stairs.

With three bedrooms, including a lovely master suite, two full bathrooms, three half-bathrooms, a gourmet kitchen with hard rock maple countertops, hardwood floors and a large deck overlooking a fabulous English garden, the residence is as substantial as it is stylish — whether the buyer chooses to take advantage of the commercial zoning opportunity or not.

Built in the 1860s, the current owners purchased it as a three-family home and completely renovated it from top to bottom, adding dormers to the third floor and upgrading the heating system. They also replaced the roof, as well as the windows and mechanicals.

Constitution Street is still predominantly a residential street, and retains that feel. Yet it is just around the corner from one of the busiest shopping blocks in town, as well as many of Bristol’s fabulous restaurants and museums. It is located a stone’s throw from Bristol Harbor and recreational opportunities ranging from sailing to kayaking, biking and hiking, fishing and birdwatching.

The beginning of the East Bay Bike Path is about a half-mile away, and the 400-plus acres of Colt State Park are all just beyond that. This property would be an exceptional home base for anyone who appreciates the marriage of downtown convenience with small-town charm.
