Cul-de-sac living

Potential home-buyers often dream of the stars aligning for the perfect home that has everything they’ve always wanted. Some might say; “I want to live in a well-established neighborhood, at the end of a cul-de-sac in a home in which everything is new and perfect.” Most established neighborhoods are well lived in. That’s how they become established. In most cases this is true, but down the end of a quiet street in Westerly, on a cul-de-sac in the well-established Butterfly Estates sits a home that has never been lived in full time, where every appliance and custom detail within remains in pristine condition.

At 32 Butterfly Drive off East Avenue sits a beautiful and immaculate single-family condo built in 2007. Though built a few years back, this spacious stand-alone home has never been lived in full time. Every detail from its floors to appliances are like new. Located in Butterfly Estates, the home sits at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac set mere minutes from area beaches and Westerly’s bustling Downtown. Butterfly Estates, developed by longtime local contractors Sorenson & McCuin is a quiet, all age’s community where privacy meets perfection.

The home itself is open, comfortable and gorgeously built at every turn. From a cozy front porch you enter the home, immediately struck by its tall, nine foot ceilings, untouched Brazilian cherry hardwood floors and one-level open floor plan. Right of the main entryway is the homes spacious dining room. A pillared archway accentuates elegance in this space custom designed for entertaining. Extra tall windows in the room and throughout the home ensure an abundance of natural sunlight that warms the space with an ever-inviting sense.

Across from the dining room, a large laundry room with granite counter tops and its own sink provides a convenient, out of the way spot for laundry and extra storage.

At the center of the home, its wide living room opens seamlessly into the rest of the house with Brazilian cherry hardwoods connecting each room. The tall ceilings create a sense of ever-inviting comfort which is accentuated by a warming gas fireplace at the front of the room.

From the living room is the homes impressive eat-in kitchen. Beautifully designed Kraftmaid cabinets offer beyond convenient storage. Intricately designed pull-outs and carousels provide ease at every turn. Rich granite counter tops add subtle depth to the room while top of the line appliances from Maytag and Frigidaire are in as clean and perfect condition as the day they were installed.

Across from the kitchen, extra-wide, 12 foot sliding glass doors open down to a spacious screened in porch, also with hardwood floors and oversized windows. The room is the perfect escape and enters outside to a backyard deck overlooking the tree-lined yard.

Back inside, the master bedroom reaches across one side of the home with an intricate coffered ceiling adding more openness to this already spacious room. Between the master bedroom and bathroom, a small hallway leads past with his and her walk-in closets at each side. The master bathroom is itself elegant and grand with tiled floors leading to a deep, oversized tub and separate, seated and tiled walk-in shower. The toilet area is separated by a door and his and her sinks sit at opposite sides of the room, each with rich granite counter tops.

At the other end of the home, pocket doors lead into a sizable office room which creates a versatile space that could be used in any number of creative ways. A guest bedroom beside it has its own linen closet as well as an extra-wide lighted closet. The homes second bathroom has a granite counter top, extra storage above and below the sink and a deep walk-in shower.

Downstairs, a full-walkout basement has multiple windows looking out to the yard and sliding doors leading out to a wide, brick paver patio. The room is unfinished, but could easily be transformed into a family room or the like. Outside of 32 Butterfly Drive are numerous gardens and impeccable lawns. An attached two-car garage with overhead storage leads out to a small driveway that opens onto the cul-de-sac at the end of the road. Safety, privacy and quiet are the neighborhoods greatest assets.
