An incomparable, outstanding restoration has brought the c. 1850 Capt. Lemuel and Mary Jarvis House back to life and made it better than ever! This brick residence stands proudly among Bristol's most notable early homes and offers direct views of the wide-open Delaware River and the ships and sailboats that traverse the river's deep waters. Its welcoming front porch with gingerbread trim and vestibule entry sets the tone for what is a formal yet comfortable living space with high ceilings, perfectly recreated historical millwork and moldings, pocket doors, well-chosen period lighting, pristine hardwood floors and new, historically correct windows (47 total with custom hidden shades for each). A formal front parlor features water views through its front windows. The dining area with a custom leaded-glass side door is open to an expansive, fully updated kitchen with an island, separate bar and superb storage. There is a den beyond the kitchen along with a full bath and first-floor laundry. The second floor now has a main bedroom suite in the front overlooking the water. Lined by seven windows, this room also has a fireplace and access to a second-story porch. Having previously served as a separate apartment, this floor also has a well-outfitted kitchen, large living/dining room area, sunroom with bay window and a lounge/bedroom with a walk-in closet and full bath plus a stackable washer/dryer.

In addition, there is a two-bedroom apartment attached to the rear of the home along with a two-car garage accessed via a half street behind the property.
