MISQUAMICUT — Surrounded by multimillion-dollar homes at the quieter end of Misquamicut Beach at 32 Atlantic Avenue in Westerly, is a beach cottage that will surely take your breath away!

Offering panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean, Montauk and the Watch Hill Lighthouse, this cedar-shingled coastal home overlooks Little Maschaug Pond and the Misquamicut Golf Course. Steps from your door, is East Beach’s pristine sandy shore where you can enjoy fun-filled days in the sun and long, quiet walks in the evening.

Side roads and main routes bring you to this 3-story cottage with an integral, tandem 2-car garage. Pillars and ­­­stockade fencing flank both sides of the driveway. Except for flowers and foliage bordering the property, gravel keeps yardwork to a minimum.

Enter the 2,418-square-foot cottage from the front deck. Or, if you’ve just spent the day at the beach, you could head to the lower level and enter through the heated garage where you will find a well-designed area with wainscoted walls and marble/tile flooring. Bathe and change in this full bathroom with a large, glass-enclosed shower and separate water closet, and eliminate tracking sand through the upper levels.

The two remaining sections of the basement (one is heated) provide a huge amount of storage space for indoor/outdoor furniture, kayaks, surfboards, and tools.

Climb the stairs or ride the full-car Otis elevator to the main floor’s open, airy layout decorated with white and splashes of color. Many extra-large Anderson windows and a cathedral ceiling ensure lots of natural light streams in.

Perfect for entertaining, gather in the living area for board games, great conversation, or a movie. During chilly weather, have hot cocoa or a cocktail by the gas fireplace, which features a bright green-colored façade and tiled surround and hearth.

Enjoy meals together in the elegant dining area with an overhead crystal chandelier. For larger, less formal gatherings, expand the party to include the 33-by-20-foot deck (with an electric awning covering a portion of it).

The fully-equipped kitchen features white Corian countertops, Shaker-styled cabinets/pantry, dishwasher, microwave and natural gas stove, as well as a stainless-steel Frigidaire refrigerator and center island with extra storage space. A half wall enables you to be part of the conversation even if you’re preparing dinner or cleaning up afterwards.

A lovely half-bath with wainscoting and tile flooring is conveniently located nearby. Tucked behind doors are a washer and dryer.

This floor also offers a stunning master suite with a huge walk-in closet/changing room, and a marbled bathroom with a large walk-in shower. Through 4 large windows in this room, you can expect to see frequent visits from a blue heron by the pond.

Ascend the stairs or elevator to the upper level’s music loft room and discover an even more astounding view! Take in the living area below, as well as waterscapes through high windows.

An exquisite 24-by-15-foot master suite on this level offers a sitting area and a wall of closets. Lined with marble, its spa bathroom provides a tub/shower and a double sink vanity.  Also, a glass door in this master suite leads to your own private deck with beautiful views to enjoy your morning coffee and read the newspaper.

At the opposite end of this floor is another large room with 2 closets that would make a perfect office, study, or art room. It even has its own charming full bath with wainscoted walls and a walk-in shower.

The colors and furniture chosen by Stager Gaye Penney play off one another throughout this home, creating a unified beachy atmosphere that enhances this fabulous year-round or summer cottage.

Wherever you are in this home and whatever you’re doing (preparing dinner, handling paperwork, or just relaxing), you have spectacular views from every window of sunsets, wildlife, the ocean, pond, and golf course. Just think of all the fun you will have with family and friends in this coastal setting. If you opt to only use this home in the summer, you will undoubtedly miss its intoxicating environment when you are not here.

Built in 2001 on almost a third of an acre, this glamorous cottage provides a full-car elevator that will bring you from the lower level to the upper floors – which makes moving furniture and putting groceries away so much easier. It’s also very helpful for achy knees! Additionally, a new roof has been installed and there is beautiful hardwood flooring and recessed lighting throughout this 2,418-square-foot home. This cottage also features marble and ceramic tile in the 4.5 bathrooms, 200-amp electrical service, an alarm system, and a natural gas kitchen stove and fireplace, as well as central gas-fired, baseboard-hot water heat on both upper levels, central air-conditioning on the main level, and split-ductless units on the upper floor.

Enjoy living by the ocean and still being close to restaurants, shopping/entertainment venues, the train station, hospital, and Interstate-95.

Imagine living here year-round or in the summer and breathing in the salt air, listening to the sound of the ocean, and taking in these amazing water views. Act now and make your dream come true!

The listing price is $1,695,000. For more information, contact Realtor Dottie Nigrelli of Randall, Realtors by cell phone at 401-258-7684, or by email at dottie@randallrealtors.com.
