Winnapaug Hills’ pillars signal the beginning of a tranquil, upscale neighborhood and your new life in a small resort town away from traffic.

Situated on over one-half acre of land overlooking a golf course at 20 Wicklow Road, is a rare 4-bedroom, 2.5 bath colonial with a manicured lawn and established trees and shrubbery.

Clad in keystone-gray-colored clapboard with black shutters, white trim and a blue door, this renovated, 1,973-square-foot home with 3 dormers and an attached 2-car garage exudes charm. A paved driveway with side parking spaces leads to a long front porch for rocking and enjoying sunsets.

Step into a 2-story foyer with a coat closet and high chandelier. Its open staircase creates a light-and-airy atmosphere and enables you to see and talk with those on the second level.

A space to the right with a large bay window is the ideal spot for a sitting area or a grand piano. Crown molding and a chair rail with wainscoted walls add elegance to this space and the adjacent dining area.

A half wall with a wainscoted breakfast bar and pendant lighting offers great sight lines to the kitchen making it easy to interact with guests while hosting parties and conversing with family on a daily basis. Gorgeous oak-wood flooring flows throughout most of the main level.

Updated one year ago, the kitchen features recessed lighting, a flat-top stove, gorgeous tile flooring/backsplash, a granite island, stainless-steel appliances, pantry with pull-out drawers, and two-tone cabinets: white on top and gray on the bottom. A window keeps it light and bright, and offers a great view of the backyard and golf course.

On the opposite side of the kitchen, the living area feels so inviting with its floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace. Plus, its gas insert allows you to enjoy a “roaring” fire without the need to chop and store wood. A French door in the living area leads to a screened-in porch with a stained, beadboard ceiling, ceiling/light fan, and another door that leads outside.

A hallway near the front entrance provides a half-bath with a pedestal sink and an almost new washer/dryer tucked behind louver doors.

With 4 bedrooms all together, you’ll have plenty of room and enjoy peace of mind with everyone close by on the second level. The bright master suite offers a good-sized retreat space with crown molding. Unwind in your private spa bathroom with a deep-soaking tub, glass-enclosed tiled shower, marble-topped double-sink vanity, and windows that overlook the Winnapaug Golf Course. Another full bath with a double-sink vanity, shower/tub and a beadboard ceiling serves the other bedrooms.

Want even more living area? Head down the wide staircase to the 800-square-foot basement with 10-foot ceilings, a workbench, built-in storage area, and an exit door. Finish it off and create a billiards and/or multi-media room.

Built in 1995, this custom-designed home with almost 2,000 square feet of above-ground living space is perfect for entertaining and enjoying friends and family. With large windows throughout, you’ll enjoy the morning sun on the back side of this light-and-airy home, and the afternoon sun on its front side.

It’s all those special touches that really make this custom-designed home something special. The floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, beadboard ceilings in the half-bath and screened-in porch, wainscoted sitting/dining areas, tiled baths and oak-wood flooring on the main level – all add so much charm to this meticulously-maintained colonial. This home provides central air-conditioning, ceiling fans throughout to circulate ocean breezes, gas-fired, baseboard-hot water heat with 3-zone control, a central-vacuum system, 200-amp electrical service, and a lawn-sprinkler system. Plus, the stainless-steel kitchen appliances and washer/dryer are almost new. Also, enjoy low maintenance with Trex composite decking on the front porch.

Of course, if you don’t need 4 bedrooms, you could always create an office, art/craft room, or yoga/exercise space.

Situated in the midst of Winnapaug Hills’ tranquil neighborhood on .69 acres of land at 20 Wicklow Road in Westerly, enjoy very little through traffic all year long. Have fun throwing the ball around and playing Frisbee in your lush, flat yard. And you’re just minutes from magnificent beaches, amenities, and cultural activities.  

The listing price is $549,000. Considering there are only a few homes with 4 bedrooms on the spring market right now in this area and none in this price range, this home “is a steal,” said Realtor Chris Randall of Randall, Realtors.
