Character & history on Elm Street


Beginning in the eighteenth century, the most classic of New England avenues were designed using ornamental plantings along their streets. The most common of these plantings was the majestic elm tree. Elm trees could be seen along the most prominent of streets from the eighteenth to twentieth centuries, their high-tunneled canopies connecting town with country.

In Westerly, the centrally located Elm Street was and remains to be just such a neighborhood. A historic district known for its intricate and grand late Victorian and late twentieth-century homes, Elm Street has been a center of life and business since downtown Westerly’s early days. One of the street’s most beautiful properties is the elegant three-family home at 31 Elm Street.

Built in 1872, 31 Elm Street is a classic home that is at once gorgeous, versatile and wonderfully serene. Location is one of the homes greatest assets. Only a short walk into the arts scene, diverse restaurants, stunning park and entertainment of downtown Westerly and a few minutes drive to the beach and coastline, the home is quite literally at the center of everything Westerly has to offer.

While location is a great selling point, its size, elegance and detail easily help 31 Elm Street sell itself. A wonderful wrap around porch recalls the tranquility of the homes late-nineteenth century roots. The peaceful porch opens into a private side garden with a wide brick patio ideal for outdoor entertaining and relaxation.

Inside, 31 Elm Street opens up into a spacious three-family home with first, second and third floor apartments ideal for renting out as income properties. Each apartment boasts all of the charms of an older home with solid construction and an abundance of character.

Character is something often lost on most modern built homes. Spacious houses like 31 Elm Street however celebrate a time when detail meant something. The large first floor apartment opens up over pristine hardwood floors. The grand living room is brightly lit by tall, wide windows throughout. Elegant trim and tall ceilings flow from room to room. As if the impressive living room wasn’t enough, a spacious sitting room and incredible library/office with built-in floor to ceiling bookshelves also sit on the first floor. Pocket doors between rooms add to the classic feel of the space. The roomy layout of the apartment makes it the perfect place for entertaining. Two bedrooms including a massive master look out over the quiet yard. The first floor apartment has not one but three bathrooms.

Upstairs, the second apartment is also spacious with one bedroom and one bath. The eat-in kitchen in the apartment flows into a nicely sized dining room, office and inviting living room with a wood-burning fireplace. The third-floor is a two-bedroom apartment with one bathroom, a living room, office and eat-in kitchen.

With 31 Elm Street, homebuyers have an opportunity to literally own a piece of history. As an income property, the home is an even more worthwhile choice. For more information contact realtor Heather Morrone with Coldwell Banker Cahoone at (401) 596-6333 or email her at Heather.Morrone@coldwellbanker.com. This property is listed for $410,000.
