Property description


The Chadwick was built in 2001 and has been lovingly maintained and updated through the years. It features vernacular design and construction materials and is furnished with both antiques and comfortable upholstered furniture.
The U-shaped kitchen is perfectly arranged and has all the usual kitchen appliances and conveniences including range, refrigerator, dishwasher and microwave oven. The open-concept living and dining area open onto a lovely sunroom overlooking the landscaped rear yard and deck. Built-ins conceal the electronics which include a flat-screen TV and cable and WiFi.
The master bedroom with king-sized bed and the guest room with two twin trundle beds are found upstairs along with the large full bathroom. The bathroom features a custom shower and separate bathtub. Large closets are available in both bedrooms.
In the rear yard, a lovely pergola offers shade on the rear patio. A brand-new outdoor shower and BBQ further enhance the outdoor living space.
In the event of inclement weather that affects electricity service, an automatic backup generator kicks in to ensure the resident continued access to appliances, heat and AC.

A little information about the area:

West Island is one of the South Coast's best kept secrets. Located in Buzzard's bay, this small residential-only Island offers the visitor and resident peace and quiet or access to any number of action-packed pursuits.

Over half the island is State Conservation land offering many nature trails, wildlife viewing and truly impressive vistas. There are several choices for ocean access; the protected water (bayside) beach or the Buzzard's Bay beach (voted the #3 town beach in all of New England).

Originally farmland, the past two centuries have seen West Island gradually change to a vacation destination for locals who know what a gem they have so close to home. It is not uncommon to meet others during your stay who have been vacationing here for decades or who's family has owned the same home for nearly a century.

While maintaining its charm, West Island has also kept pace with technology. City Water and Sewer, high-speed internet, satellite television are just some of the amenities you will find while on our island.

Within 4 miles you will find two large supermarket chains, department stores as well as other well-known chain establishments. West Island is a mere 60 minutes from Boston, 45 minutes from Newport and under half an hour from the Bourne or Sagamore bridges.
