Watch Hill bungalow offers ocean view, paradise

Now is your chance to live in Watch Hill with its iconic history, divine ocean views, and beaches.

Situated diagonally across from the Ocean House on almost one acre of land at 16 Plimpton Road is a gorgeous bungalow, which has just come on the market.

Clad in beige stucco with a green, overhanging roof, copper gutters and a beach-stone foundation, it offers a huge front porch for enjoying views of Watch Hill Bay. A side deck and large, 2-tiered rear deck offer plenty of space for outdoor entertaining.

Beyond the charming stone wall in front, the home is beautifully landscaped with trees, bushes, and flowers. Behind the bungalow is a large, flat grassy yard – perfect for children and dogs to run around and everyone to play badminton, soccer, and volleyball. A long, paved driveway leads you past a shuffleboard court to a deep, 4-car garage with electricity, ideal for workbenches and storing boats, as well as cars. Light enters the garage through art-deco glass.

This spacious, sunny house with high ceilings and many large windows features a carpeted, open floor plan. Its dining area offers ample space for formal meals, while the good-sized living area provides 2 ceiling fans and built-in seating below a bay window. Enjoy good conversations in the adjacent sitting area with a wood-burning fireplace, or curl up with a good book.

Its well-appointed, eat-in kitchen features a square island and tons of modern white cabinetry, as well as stainless-steel double-ovens, a flat-top stove, exhaust hood, refrigerator, and dishwasher. Tucked behind louver doors are a washer and dryer. How convenient to be able to cook and pop a load of wash in at the same time.

A side entrance leads to a huge tiled foyer with a coat closet and space for seating. It’s the ideal spot to take off your boots and shoes and maintain a much cleaner home.

On the other side of the foyer, is a lovely heated sunroom with parquet flooring and a wall of cabinetry and shelving. A door leads to the rear deck. This space could be used as an office, art room, or for entertaining. You’ll fall in love with the huge master bedroom en suite off the foyer with double and single closets, bay windows, and built-in seating. Sliding glass doors lead to the deck with a hot tub. This bedroom’s private full bath features a shower/Jacuzzi tub with glass doors.

Great forethought went into this spacious 2,781-square-foot home. A wooden staircase on the main and second levels features glass sides with wooden handrails. The wide, upper level landing also provides a full view of the entire living area - very nice for communicating with those below and watching over children. Sliding glass doors at the far end of the landing also lead to a deck.

A large full bath on the second floor features a half-moon window and a wide mirror that stretches across the double vanity. Nearby, are two large bedrooms with abundant closet space. One offers a walk-in closet with a door that leads to additional storage space.

It’s the detail and workmanship that really make this house special. Beautifully-stained wood floors on the second level, along with wood-framed windows and 6-panel pocket doors throughout, add so much warmth and elegance to this bungalow. Of course, this home’s location makes it a spectacular find as well.

Built in 1909, this updated house provides 200-amp electrical service, a central-vacuum system, new septic system, 2 oil tanks in the basement and forced hot-water baseboard heat. Additional storage is available at the top of the basement stairs, as well as below, and in the attic.

Enjoy living in this divine resort location year round with views of Watch Hill Bay. Stroll down to the shops and restaurants. Watch the boats come and go. Walk along the beaches and watch the sun set. Have fabulous parties with plenty of off-street parking. Seasonally, experience the historic Watch Hill Flying-Horse Carousel come to life, as children gleefully vie for the brass ring.

This home is also a wonderful investment opportunity. Rent it during the peak summer months and off season.
