BRISTOL FEATURES & THE BENEFITS
Let’s first talk about LOCATION…
Across from the WestEdge Development
Walk to the Publix grocery store just across the street - the Japanese Restaurant - a Spa - and The Harbor Club to start. The growth of WestEdge should increase the desirability of the Bristol location providing a possible increase in condo value.
Next to Brittlebank Park
Enjoy Brittlebank Park, a 10-acre park on the Ashley River next door offering boat docking, a fishing pier with canopy, picnic tables, playground and off-leash dog park. Periodic activities can easily be attended a few steps away -Astronomy in the Park on Wednesdays ( email@example.com ) - the SEWE festival - concerts in the park are just a few. Brittlebank Park is a great jump-off for a run to the Battery or Hampton Park.
Next to the Joe and the Citadel
Walk to the baseball games at the Riverdogs minor league baseball stadium or wander further to the Citadel for a military parade. Offered from the Joe Riley Stadium are Friday night home game fireworks to enjoy from the Bristol pool balcony or your own condo in the summer. Join the Wine on the Water or the Ballpark Festival of Beers for added fun.
Near Hampton Park
A short bike-ride away, the 60-acre Hampton Park offers one of the most peaceful destinations in the city for the vacation state of mind. Gardens of the park are interspersed with Spanish moss laden oaks making this is a great place to meditate.
Marina in the Backyard
Walk the docks for exercise and entertainment. Ease of access from the back gate and dock directly from the Bristol building. Watch your own boat from your condo or poolside as it floats peacefully at the Harbor Marina.
15 Minutes to the Airport
Need we say more… ‘easy, peasy’

MUSC, Roper, and VA - practically spitting distance from The Bristol, these hospitals can be easily reached by the Shuttle that stops in front of the building or even walking.
Now about the abundance of AMENITIES…

The Bristol Room
