Move-in coastal home offers year-round vacation living

Minutes away from East Beach in the heart of Quonochontaug, sits a beautifully-crafted, 3,000-square-foot home at 49 Overlook Avenue in Charlestown.

Clad with gray, vinyl-sided shingles and white trim, this contemporary-styled home features a small, covered front porch with a two-car garage strategically tucked out of sight under the home. There’s plenty of room for guests to park their cars on the long stone driveway.

Beyond the front picket fence, bushes border the left and right sides of this property. Flower gardens adorn this property and include seagrass, peonies, and Russian sage, while roses, sedums, hydrangeas and crocosmias add color and aesthetic beauty to the grounds. Beyond the Old New England stone wall that marks the back of the property, is a picturesque view of open space and a home far in the distance.

Traverse the stone pathway to the front door and enter into the lower-level foyer with an elevator and stairs that lead to the mid- and upper-levels. Whether there’s a desire or necessity, the convenience is all yours.

Hardwood flows into the large bright living area with six windows and a propane-gas fireplace. Enjoy entertaining in this open floor plan, with the adjacent gourmet kitchen that includes granite countertops, a gathering bar, and white wainscoted cabinets. The six-foot island creates a dramatic effect with overhead cabinetry, interior lights, and glass doors. Create masterful entrees with a Wolf six-burner gas range and double multi-purpose ovens. The kitchen also includes a separate side-by-side Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer and Bosch dishwasher.

A door at the far end leads to an over-sized rear deck – perfect for barbecues during the warmer months. Conveniently located off the kitchen is a hallway that leads to a full bath, storage room, and laundry room.

The upper level features a stunning master bedroom suite with a vaulted ceiling, built-in shelving and a walk-in closet. Its private full bath provides a tiled shower, granite vanity and water closet. Another full bath on this floor serves a second bedroom with a walk-in closet. Two other good-sized rooms would function nicely as guest rooms, offices, or art studios.

For a view of the ocean, ascend rear stairs to the rooftop’s rectangular, boat-styled deck, which features wainscoted white walls, ship lights, and composite decking. When the trees lose their leaves, you can also see Block Island clearly. Plus, on July 4th, watch fireworks go off in every direction!

Additional living space with many windows is also available on the lower level. Use it as a gathering spot for teens or as a place to relax, read, or meditate. The other half of the lower level features a work space, mechanical room, and 2-car garage.

Built in 2005, this stunning, move-in ready home with luscious landscaping offers so many exquisite surprises: extravagant crown molding throughout, wall designs, a vaulted ceiling, sophisticated lighting and high-end appliances, as well as tile and hardwood flooring. There are also many closets and spacious storage areas throughout the house. Additionally, exterior work is kept to a bare minimum with vinyl-sided shingles, vinyl railings/walls, and composite decking. Best of all, a full-house generator stands ready to automatically restore power during electrical outages.

This 3,000-square-foot home on .18 acres of land with 2 bedrooms and 3 full baths provides central heating and air-conditioning. There are many windows throughout each area and all three levels create a bright, happy atmosphere.

Enjoy the feeling of being on vacation year round and still being close to schools, restaurants, boutiques and antique shops in Charlestown and nearby towns. In minutes, you can be at the Westerly train station, airport or hospital.

As a Quonochontaug East Beach Association member, you can join the QEBA tennis and yacht clubs. Go kayaking, canoeing, or boating. Soothe your soul with walks on your private beach! With a barrier beach located between Quonochontaug and Ninigret Ponds, choose your path and go saltwater fishing, clamming, or simply take in the beauty of this special place. You’re home.

The listing price is $1.2 Million. For more information about this contemporary-styled home at 49 Overlook Avenue in Charlestown, contact Realtor Rhonda Mesenbourg of Coldwell Banker Coastal Homes at 401-596-6333, or by email at
