The ultimate in one-level condominium living awaits at 7 Newbury Drive in Westerly.
Nestled within the 135-acre Dr. John Champlin Glacier Park and Winnapaug Cottages’ cluster of stand-alone homes is a gorgeous condominium with an open floor plan. This custom-designed home is located on a premium lot off Shore Road just 1 mile from the ocean and spectacular beaches. Situated between Watch Hill and Winnapaug Pond, this active adult community is 3 miles from Downtown Westerly’s restaurants, shops, library, Wilcox Park, and the Granite Theatre.
Beautified with professional landscaping and a paver-stoned driveway, this home and its attached 2-car garage are clad with cedar shingles and stone. Ascend the front porch steps into a large foyer with a high ceiling, double closet, and half-bath. Durable tile flooring when you first enter provides an area where you can take off wet shoes and boots.
Continue on into a sun-filled open area with gleaming white-oak hardwood flooring, 9-foot ceilings, and 6.5-foot-long, hurricane-resistant Anderson (400 Series) windows. Elegant touches include crown molding and dimmable, recessed lighting. A glass door opens to a deck with composite decking and stairs that lead to the lower-level patio with a stone wall and outdoor shower.
A gas fireplace with tile/wood façade serves as a focal point for the spacious living area. Diagonally across, is a 4-season sunroom with a cathedral ceiling and a high circular window. It also provides a panoramic view of woodlands and a glacial pond below - creating a delightful treehouse effect. (Expect to see bunnies, deer, and an abundance of birds, including turkeys, flitting about as well.) Open the windows and listen to the wind whispering through the trees!
The large dining area with a chandelier seats up to 12 people. Plus, the adjacent eat-in kitchen offers many high-end touches, including granite countertops with a snack bar and maple hardwood Shaker cabinets and pantry with soft-close, pullout drawers, as well as stainless-steel appliances and double ovens. A separate area in this large kitchen opposite a table features another countertop with ivory-colored cabinetry.
Pocket French doors open from the kitchen into a charming room, which could be used as a den, study, or bedroom. There is just so much room for entertaining throughout this home’s main open area!
This 2,371-square-foot condominium also features an expansive master bedroom suite with a large walk-in closet. Unwind in its spa bathroom with a deep-soaking, cast-iron tub. It also includes a shower, granite countertops, a bidet, and tile flooring.
Another full bath serves the second bedroom. There are also linen/storage closets and a convenient laundry room with a sink, cabinetry, and a built-in ironing board that can be accessed from the foyer or garage.
Built in 2006, this stunning condominium looks new. That’s because the owners have only lived in this home 6 months out of every year since the beginning. Also, the owners have never smoked in this cottage nor cared for pets here.
There is still more to see. Take the interior or deck stairs to the unfinished, 2,000-square-foot lower level, which is already plumbed for a bathroom. Completely above ground, it features double sliding glass doors and many large windows. Finish it off and create extra living space, a separate apartment, or an in-law suite. Five steel expansion beams already in place enable you to design an open floor plan if you so desire.
