Nestled on a quiet street only minutes away from restaurants, shopping, golfing, beaches, and schools, is an inviting clapboard colonial house with lots of special touches.
This eight-room family home at 25 Piezzo Drive in Westerly exudes Old New England charm with its front porch, manicured landscape, and stone wall that spans the length of the paved driveway and up the front steps. The absence of above-ground utility wires adds to the serenity of this street.
Enter through the front door into a foyer with a sitting area – a perfect place to have coffee in the morning or a martini at the end of the day – and enjoy some quiet time with that special someone. This open area leads right into a spacious dining room and kitchen that would make any chef jealous with its tile floor, stainless steel refrigerator/stove and massive amount of wooden cabinet space. More storage space is available under the nine-foot granite island, which seats four on one end. The grandness of the kitchen/dining area is perfect for entertaining a large number of people and preparing feasts.
One end of the kitchen leads directly into a cozy living room with a brick fireplace and slate mantel. An overhead fan ensures good air circulation.
Climb the stairs to the second floor and there is an oversized bathroom and two good-sized bedrooms with a vast amount of closet space. One features built-in window seating with storage. The master bedroom is true heaven with its huge walk-in closet and oversized bathroom with shower and tiled Jacuzzi and floor. Who needs a spa with a room like this?
The entire home has a soft unified look, which is accomplished utilizing custom sheer blinds, as well as pristine, light-colored wood floors, which flow through the hallways, living room, and bedrooms.
Plenty of thought went into this well-loved home designed by the sellers. Amenities include an abundance of closet space, recessed lighting, central heating/air conditioning/vacuuming, gas heat, and a half-bath and laundry room on the first floor. The temperature-controlled, two-car garage with natural lighting, was purposely “tucked under” the house out of view. On this level, there is also plenty of room to store food and seasonal items and create an office or workshop area. There is even an electric chair to transport handicapped people from the basement to the first floor.
Step into the backyard and discover a private family paradise with woods, a fire pit, bird sanctuary, and tall Arborvitaes/Cyprus bushes, which border two sides of the property. There is also a quaint little shed in the backyard, which could be used for lawn equipment or a child’s playhouse.
With spring around the corner, look for the grounds to really come to life with daffodils, red barberry bushes, and other plants.
This three-bedroom, 2.5 bath retreat built in 1999 is perfect for individuals and families who are looking for a year-round home or a summer getaway - for entertaining, unwinding, or just spending time together. It is the best of both worlds. Enjoy the tranquility and elegance of this home, while being close to beaches, marinas, golfing, restaurants and shops. No long commute to and from the beach for you and your friends and family. Thirty minutes from Newport and close to highways, nightlife, and plenty of other activities, this 2,226 square-foot-residence is a spectacular find. It’s also not in a flood zone – another thing you don’t have to worry about!
