Experience luxurious living in a resort community at 32 Newbury Drive in Westerly, Rhode Island – one of Winnapaug Cottages’ 60 single-family, stand-alone condominiums.
Located off Shore Road between Watch Hill and Weekapaug, this active adult community is surrounded by 135 acres of preservation land with 7 serene hiking trails. It is also close to ocean beaches, shopping centers and just 3 miles from downtown Westerly’s cafes, shops, library, train station, Wilcox Park, and the Granite Theatre.
Even though this is an age 55-plus community, you now have an opportunity to purchase a Winnapaug Cottage if no one in your household meets this age requirement, because association rules allow 20 percent of the buyers to be younger!
Beautified with professional landscaping, mature trees and a cobble-stoned driveway, this condominium is clad with stained cedar shingles and a stone façade.
Its attached 3-car garage with oversized bays offers plenty of room to store your vehicles, small boat, kayaks, Jet Skis, and other water gear. It even has a utility sink and a designated washer and dryer for beach towels and bathing suits.
Front steps bring you to a charming porch – perfect for enjoying your morning coffee and greeting the neighbors.
Deceiving from the outside, you will be amazed how spacious and open it is inside!

Ascend the stairs to see a stunning 33-by-16-square-foot room with a panoramic view of tree branches and leaves, creating a delightful treehouse effect. This room, with its gorgeous oakwood flooring, skylights, large windows and track lighting, could be used in so many ways. With an abundance of natural light, it would make an ideal artist studio. Or, utilize it as a home theatre or recreation room for playing ping pong, billiards, or air hockey.
