"Westerly" is being offered for sale for the first time in 51 years and only for the 3rd time since it was built in 1927.

Set on 10.13 private acres of established trees and memorable gardens, the 3-story brick house with massive slate roof is an impressive sight when approached at the end of the long, gated front drive.

Notably, these 10 acres are bordered by another 40 acres of Land Trust woodland and hiking trails. Westerly's front entrance opens to a grand hall and a view that extends through the French doors to the patio beyond. Here, entertaining begins as this hall opens to a wood paneled Library as well as generous Living and Dining Rooms, each with paneled walls, fireplaces and two pairs of French doors to the rear patio. Prepping for such gatherings is easy with the fully outfitted butler's pantry and an updated, modern kitchen. Upstairs, a wide landing leads to a master suite with sitting room. Three large bedrooms, an ironing room, plus two small rooms or offices comprise the remaining 2nd floor rooms. An expanded third-floor family room/playroom and adjacent bedroom suite provides great space for long-term guests or visiting family. The three season glassed in porch off the Living Room provides excellent views of the pool and a classic brick pool deck. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to acquire a truly remarkable estate.
