This episode of New England Living TV was filmed in the coastal town of Bristol, RI, home of the longest continually running Fourth of July parade in the United States as well as the Herreshoff Marine Museum and America’s Cup Hall of Fame. The home featured in this episode is owned by an avid sailor and nautical touches can be found throughout its interiors. Affectionately named Pen Marc’h by owners Maria and Charlie – in a nod to the historic town in Brittany, France where Charles learned to sail as a boy – the home sits high on a hill which affords it stunning views of the bays surrounding Bristol.
After touring Pen Marc’h with Maria and Charlie, Host Parker Kelley spends time chatting with Architect David Andreozzi who designed the classic bungalow-style home. Parker, Marie and Charlie then hop on electric bikes and take advantage of the waterfront bike path in nearby Colt State Park before heading back to the house where Parker joins Chef Kim Hersom to help her prepare dinner for the evening’s gathering of friends.
Parker also visits the Herreshoff Museum and talks about the storied history of the America’s Cup, and stops in at The Bee Hive Pantry, one of Maria’s favorite places to grab fresh-baked breads.
