Nestled within a lovely, established community, minutes from spectacular beaches and stores, is a spacious split-level home at 42 Tum-A-Lum Circle in Westerly, Rhode Island.

Besides being in a wonderful location with manicured landscaping and sidewalks, this home keeps maintenance to a minimum with just under one-quarter of an acre of property to maintain. And much of that land is being utilized by a gorgeous, built-in swimming pool and surrounding patio - flanked on both sides with wooden fencing for privacy.  

Additionally, since this house is clad in gray vinyl with white trim, you’ll also save on not having to paint it every few years.

This home features a paved driveway (with parking for 6 cars) in front of a 2-car garage – if you choose to use it that way. Currently, this space is being utilized as a recreation room with carpeting and sliding glass doors that open to the backyard. With its garage door still in place, this room could easily be converted back into an indoor parking area.

Enter through the front burgundy-colored door into a foyer with a lovely view of the upper and lower levels. A door on the right leads to the expansive recreation room. Ascend the stairs into an open floor plan with a cathedral ceiling, and gleaming hardwood flooring.

Its large dining room features a wall of glass and sliding glass doors that open onto a good-sized deck to enjoy during the warmer months. Imagine dining alfresco or enjoying tea or a glass of wine with family and friends while watching the sun set. Stairs bring you to the fenced-in pool.

An adjacent eat-in kitchen provides matching white appliances with a flat-top stove, plenty of cabinetry, and a pantry. Its 2 windows oversee the front yard and bring in the morning sun.

A nearby hallway leads to 2 carpeted bedrooms with closets and large windows that bring in lots of natural light and passive heat. Both are served by a linen closet and full-bath with a shower/tub and sink vanity.

At the far end of the hallway is the carpeted master suite with 3 large windows, a ceiling fan, walk-in closet, and a private full bath with a double-sink vanity.

Nine-hundred-and-nine square feet on the walk-out lower level brings you so much more living space! Discover a huge living room with more stunning hardwoods and a storage closet, as well as a gas fireplace with a mantelpiece and tiled façade/hearth.

Double-glass doors open to a tiled, 14-by-20-foot heated sunroom with a cathedral ceiling and skylights surrounded by large windows on 3 sides. Glass sliders bring you to a slate patio and the pool just steps away. Imagine the entertainment possibilities!

Additionally, this floor features a full bath and another good-sized bedroom with a ceiling fan, double-closet, and hardwood flooring.

A large utility room on this level features a washer and dryer, as well as the water heater, gas furnace, and storage area.

Depending on the size of your family and your personal lifestyle, this house could be set up in various ways. Perhaps, a parent or teenager would enjoy the privacy of having a bedroom on the lower floor. Or, utilize the space as a gym, office, or guest room. Another option if you don’t need 4 bedrooms is to use one of the upper-level rooms as an art room or study.

Built in 2001, this spacious home is truly a retreat with a refreshing, built-in pool to call your own and lots of space to enjoy private time alone and with friends. When you feel like socializing, there are always public pools and amazing beaches to visit in Westerly.

Enjoy the living area on the upper floor and another 909 square feet on the finished lower level for a total of 2,085 square feet. This home is connected to city water and sewer systems and provides 200-amp electrical service, as well as central air-conditioning and gas-fired hydro-heating. And its many large windows throughout bring the outside in and ensure plenty of nature light.

Imagine beginning and ending your day with a refreshing swim during the warmer months in your private, built-in swimming pool. Also, the adjacent flat yard is the perfect spot to play ball or Frisbee with family, friends, and pets.

Enjoy living close to the local airport and Route 1 with all its shopping/restaurant venues. Plus, you’re just minutes from mesmerizing beaches, marinas, the hospital, and Downtown Westerly’s shops, cafes, library, Wilcox Park, and train station.

Stay active by golfing at local courses, joining the Ocean Community YMCA, and kayaking, canoeing, and walking the many nature preserve trails in the area.
