Every once in a while a home comes on the market that is perfect – inside and out. It offers an open floor plan, multiple entertaining spaces, new appliances, and a water view.
Such a jewel has emerged and it offers unique spaces and opportunities for expansion, as well as tons of updates, including all new central cooling/gas heating equipment and electrical service.
Situated at 20 Timothy Drive in Westerly, Rhode Island on just over one-half-acre of newly-landscaped property, this contemporary home features scenic views of the Pawcatuck River and Stonington, Connecticut. Trees on both sides provide privacy. Attached to the right side of the home is an oversized 2-car garage with space for a workshop and high ceilings for large vehicles and boat storage.
“This particular street is extremely quiet. It is a lovely neighborhood with very little traffic. And of course, you have the water views,” said Realtor Sarah Field of Randall, Realtors.
Clad with a mixture of gray shingles/clapboards and white trim, this 2,611-square-foot home offers front/side porches, as well as new flagstone pathways.
Enter the front door into an open floor plan that allows you to see the new stone patio and backyard through the kitchen’s sliding glass doors.
Relax in the large living area with Berber carpeting and a wood-burning fireplace adorned with Westerly granite. An adjacent dining area on the right seats 8 guests and features side cabinetry and a tiled countertop. Tile flooring by the front/side doors and kitchen area makes cleanup from wet boots and spills easy.
Enjoy nature and spectacular sunsets over the water from the living and dining areas, and every room on both levels on the western side of this home. An abundance of large windows also create a light-and-airy atmosphere.
The nearby kitchen features light, solid-wood cabinets with beautiful countertops, soft-close drawers, and a gas grill in the wainscoted island. New appliances include double ovens, a refrigerator, and dishwasher. This home’s layout is ideal for large gatherings and parties. You can hear and see what everyone is doing wherever they are – which exactly what parents and grandparents need when watching little ones.
A hallway that doubles as a mudroom leads to a large coat closet, side exit, bench and a door that brings you to the garage. Another hallway leads to a half bath with a washer and dryer.
Rest well in the main level’s master bedroom suite with a walk-in closet and Berber carpeting. Its private bath offers a granite vanity and separate areas for the shower and tub with a door in between, so 2 people could get ready at the same time.
The second level provides another dining/family room with a propane heater adjacent to a vaulted solarium/art studio with a 9-foot ceiling. Lined with lovely tile flooring, this portion of the home also provides 2 built-in areas with cabinetry, countertops, and 2 sinks. This is an ideal spot for entertaining a large group or just enjoying the ever-changing weather in the glass-enclosed room.
Gorgeous 8-inch, pine-wood flooring flows throughout the hallways and 2 bedroom suites. In a separate section, an open area would be an ideal spot for an office, study, or sitting area. A door from here leads to a 640-square-foot, unfinished space over the garage with unlimited potential. Depending on your needs, you could create 2 additional bedrooms or a great room. A staircase from this room leads directly to the first-floor garage and exit door. Having separate quarters with a private exit is ideal for guests and visiting adult children.
Enjoy peace of mind knowing that this renovated home has a new foundation, full basement for storage, a tankless hot-water heater, central cooling and propane gas heating equipment, and 200-amp electrical service. Also, new water/sewer lines connect to city services and all the utility wires are underground.
Built in 1980, this contemporary home with an oversized 2-car garage features a spacious open floor plan with recessed lighting on the main level, Duette insulating shades, 3 good-sized bedrooms, 3.5 baths with tile or slate flooring, and multiple indoor/outdoor entertaining areas.
Let a sense of peace wash over you as you view breathtaking sunsets and enjoy living just 10 minutes from magnificent beaches, where you can walk or bicycle along them whenever you wish. Plus, being far enough away from the ocean and river means you don’t need flood insurance.
You’re also minutes from amenities on Route 1 and the historic downtown area with all its charming restaurants, shops, art galleries, entertainment venues, and the train station. Additionally, the hospital, Interstate-95 and the Route 78 Westerly bypass are close by.
