Westerly house description

Waterfront home with a spectacular view on a 1+ acre lot with a large, manicured lawn and a private foot dock to one of Rhode Island’s famous salt ponds. Ponder, as we fondly refer to it, has a wonderful enclosed porch overlooking Winnapaug Pond with expansive ocean views. The pond offers a unique venue for kayaking, sailing, swimming, birding and fishing, with breach way access to Block Island Sound.

Located within minutes of the Misquamicut and Watch Hill BEACHES (dunes pass to the Misquamicut State Beaches included with rental for all peak-season weeks), with easy access to Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun casinos, Mystic Seaport, Mystic Aquarium, and fantastic dining in Westerly, Watch Hill, Stonington, Mystic, and elsewhere. Just 35 minutes to Newport.

There is a public golf course, the Winnapaug Golf Club, located within walking distance, and multiple public tennis courts can be found in the area.
The house has a large living room that opens to the enclosed porch and a combined kitchen/dining room that overlooks the pond.
Four bedrooms:
• Upstairs master bedroom with king and en suite bathroom
• Second upstairs bedroom with single bed
• Downstairs room with two single beds (that can be made into a king bed)
• Downstairs room with full sized bed
Two full baths, one with a shower and one with a bath/shower, and one half bath.

Easily accessible from the Westerly Amtrak station and T F Green Airport in Providence, and just a few minutes from the Westerly State Airport, which provides daily flights to Block Island.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1997

                      About the owner: Ponder is jointly owned by two branches of a family that shares a love of the Rhode Island sea coast. While we call a total of five different states 'home' between us, we all treasure the time that we can spend at Ponder. We have all had wonderful times here, celebrating weddings and birthdays, and just enjoying time with family and friends. Many of us have fond memories of getting our first gold ring on the Watch Hill carousel, or attending concerts and fireworks in the Westerly park. And we all have spent many hours relaxing on the many beautiful sandy beaches available in the area.

                      Why the Owner Chose Westerly:
                      Some of us were raised in Westerly and have known the area and all it has to offer for our entire lifetimes. Others have come to know it more recently. We all agree that it offers the perfect blend of natural beauty and quiet, as well as lots of activities and things to do for people of all ages.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      In addition to an amazing location, this house is very comfortable and offers all of the conveniences of home. You can spend your time relaxing and reading on the sun porch, enjoying a cup of coffee on the back steps overlooking the water, or taking advantage of all of the activities that its waterfront location allows. The large grounds provide plenty of space for children to run around and play. The well-equipped kitchen allows you to easily cook and eat in, if you wish. The pass to the Dunes Beach, which comes with the weekly rental, makes it easy for you to park right at the beach.
