A Mount Hope Bay beach house, in a year-round family neighborhood


Imagine a home that has been completely updated and renovated for elegant year-round living, situated on your own private stretch of shoreline.

This beautifully renovated beachfront property at 38 Viking Drive in Bristol has four bedrooms and two baths, including a master bedroom on the main living level. French doors out lead out to an oversized deck from both the living room and the master bedroom. The lower level is a full walkout to manicured yard and exquisitely landscaped gardens.

A second kitchen and private living space on the lower level is perfect for in-laws, guests, or au pair accommodations.

The lovely home is only rivaled by the location—a front-row seat on Mount Hope Bay. Enjoy swimming, sailing, kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing and shellfishing from your own private beach. A wealth of recreational possibilities are available to you, without ever leaving your own back yard.

Viking Drive, on the east side of Bristol, is part of the Hopeworth neighborhood, characterized by quiet, traffic-free streets and single-family homes, where kids ride their bikes and play outside until dark. Yet despite the quiet, you are less than a moment's drive to route 136 and easy access to shopping, routes 195 and 24, and Providence and Boston beyond.
