Westerly house description

This lovely 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. 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.


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 also has 2 foam mattresses, used as a couch and suitable for additional sleepers who don't mind a mattress on the floor. We use them for children who share the bedroom with their parents.

We love the private outdoor shower on the back deck and generally use only this all summer and save the tub for the small children's bedtime ritual.

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 oond 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.
