Built in 1901 by the master carpenters of Herreshoff Manufacturing Company, known for building the finest yachts in the world, the original Belvedere Hotel was a testament to the splendor of the Gilded Age. The 50-room brick hotel was lavishly built to accommodate Herreshoff’s wealthy clientele, which included J.P. Morgan and Harold Vanderbilt. Today, the Belvedere at Bristol has been restored with landmark features to include twelve luxury residences and two penthouses for sale that blend 19th century elements with thoughtful contemporary construction, design and energy efficient materials and systems. All located in the charming seaside historic town of Bristol, Rhode Island.
Unlike many restored or repurposed historic buildings, the Belvedere was always intended for residential purposes and the design captures the original details and evokes a warm home-like atmosphere with wide hallways, coffered ceilings and no more than three residences per floor.
