Westerly house description

This lovely house has recently become even more inviting since a brand new sunroom was added, the deck was enlarged using Brazilian ash, and a beautiful, large and private shower was added on the side of the house. The house is a contempory with a chalet type feel to it. Because of its open floor plan, high pine clad ceiling and large windows, there is a light, airy outdoorsy atmosphere. From the large deck you can see the water peeking through the trees. The walls are decorated with large paintings and original artwork. New cherry floors and tile are used throughout the first floor whereas the upstairs has lovely wall to wall carpets.The open floor plan with cathedral ceilings, sliders onto the deck and large windows allow for lovely natural light. The kitchen area which is also open and central facilitates cooking together while being in the scene of the action.

The new sunroom addition opens with three glass sliders onto the new, enlarged deck. This space provides an additional family room which is somewhat separate from the main house so that one can enjoy some additional privacy while still being close to the action.

Two bedrooms and a bathroom with shower are on the ground level.. The downstairs hall has a washer/dryer.. Two large bedrooms upstairs are accessible from a spiral cherry staircase and balcony landing which overlooks the living room area. They share a bathroom with sitting tub with hand held shower. One master bedroom with a king size bed also has a bunk bed which is suitable for two children. The other bedroom has a queen size bed as well as a skylight.

We love the beautiful new outdoor shower on the side entrance. It is large enough to accomodate parents with small children and we now use only this entrance when coming from the beach.

The house is located on a quiet side-street in a private neighborhood. We are only about one minute's walk from the salt pond swimming area with life guard and lauch area for kayaks and dingies. From there you can paddle across the pond to the barrier reef which separates the pond from the ocean with it's pristine beaches.The roads are perfect for walking, biking, or hiking. There is a trail through conservation land. Or walk to the Shelter Harbor Inn for wonderful dinners and lunches and play tennis on the two Shelter Harbor tennis courts.

Please let us know if you want to see more pictures of the house, the pond, and the ocean beach.
