If sweeping ocean views and living one mile from Misquamicut beaches sounds enticing, come see the 4-story contemporary home at 9 Seacrest Drive in Westerly.
Set on a hill with large boulders in front, this cream-colored, vinyl-sided house is surrounded by beautiful landscaping on over one-half acre of land.
The long driveway leads to a fenced-in paved area behind the home and an oversized, one-car garage tucked under the house. Access the main level via exterior side stairs or a door next to the garage and discover a semi-open floor plan, which has been meticulously maintained and superbly decorated.
Relax in the large living room with a gas fireplace, recessed lighting and space for a sectional couch.
Fabulous wood flooring stretches throughout the living area and into an adjacent room with huge windows that overlook the ocean in the distance. What a nice spot for an office, den, or art room! A half wall separates this room from another space with tile flooring. Need more privacy? Add French doors to the entry way between the living room and this den and transform the half wall into a full partition using 1950s art deco glass - thereby maintaining a light and airy feeling throughout the home.
The adjacent room – perfect for casual dining, socializing or reading - features sliding-glass doors that lead to a fantastic wraparound deck with a huge open area to soak in the sun and a gazebo for those days you’re seeking shade or just to get out of the rain. Imagine having lunch or dinner on this deck during the warmer months and enjoying the ocean view!
Next to the casual dining area is an enormous dining room with wood flooring, a lovely chandelier, and room for side tables. Half-walls in this room create a separate space, while also keeping it open to the rest of the level.
Continue on into an eat-in kitchen with white subway-tiled backsplash, light ceramic-tile flooring, and tons of countertop space and beige French Provincial cabinetry. An island with a breakfast bar offers additional cabinetry and a unique countertop cover for the gas-top range when it’s not in use – a great safety measure when children are nearby. A kitchen door also leads to the deck.
A nearby hallway on the main level offers a lovely half bath and a separate laundry room with cabinets.
When it’s time for bed, climb the carpeted stairs to the upper level. A circular window on the first landing provides natural light and adds character to the home.
Discover a huge master bedroom with a skylight and private full bath. One striped wall highlights the other powder-blue walls – adding a dramatic touch to this room. Another full bath on this level serves a large second bedroom with a skylight and a charming third room with a triple closet. Wood flooring flows throughout the 3 bedrooms.
A good-sized tiled sitting area connected to all three bedrooms, leads to a private balcony with another view of the ocean. For an even more magnificent scene, ascend another set of stairs to the observatory, where you can see both Block Island and Montauk Point. This cozy room provides a wet bar, wood flooring and a great space to play bridge or chess, or enjoy a glass of wine while taking in spectacular ocean views that are forever changing.
In addition to the outdoor living/dining areas on the deck and semi-open main level entertainment areas, there is still more living space on the basement level, which has been finished off and transformed into a recreational area. The other portion of the walk-out basement contains an oversized garage with a large workshop space.
Built in 1989, this 2,520-square-foot contemporary home offers 200-amp electrical service, central air-conditioning, gas/electric heating, insulated glass windows, an enclosed outdoor shower, shed, central vacuum system, and gas fireplace in the living area, as well as a gas-generated woodstove on the lower level. Other elegant touches include stained, 6-pocket wooden doors and floors lined with wood and ceramic tile. This house is also connected to city water.
Enjoy stunning views of the ocean on 3 upper levels of this home and walking, biking or driving to 2 town beaches and a state beach that are just one mile away. You’re also close to the hospital and many restaurants and shopping venues – including downtown Westerly with all its quaint shops.
