Westerly is a town on the southwestern shoreline of Washington County, Rhode Island. It is home to one of the most picturesque downtown sections in all of Rhode Island and has some of the state's most beautiful beaches.  The Ocean House hotel is one of the most luxurious hotels in the United States and is just one of the many amazing places to visit or stay during your travels to Westerly.  As a regular in Westerly or a tourist you'll find that each of the different sections of town and especially each of the beaches has its own vibe.  The quaint elegance of Watch Hill, the electricity of Misquamicut and the history of downtown Westerly are just three of the more famous attractions.  The population is around 23,000 and the median home value is $318,500.

Westerly residents are in love with the amazingly low property taxes and proximity to route 95 for commuting. The population is just under 23,000 and is a mere 5 miles from neighboring Connecticut. Taylor Swift recently made local history when she closed on a 17.75 million dollar mansion overlooking Watch Hill, which is one of the most prestigious neighborhoods in all of New England.  Outside Watch Hill, the Avondale, Weekapaug, and Misquamicut neighborhoods are highly sought after locations as well.  

 

Once you get into Town, there's a whole new vibe, plenty of multifamily homes for owner occupants and investors, as well as smaller single families.   There are also tons of great local restaurants, shopping and magnificent waterfront views.   Outside the town and the beach section there is a more rural/suburban, northern section of town that benefits from the low tax rate generated by all the luxury homes surrounding the beaches.  The neighborhoods off Potter Hill Road, running perpendicular to the Pawcatuck River, are a great place to reside, characterized by larger lot sizes, a ton of opportunities for new construction and newer homes in a mid level price point.   Matt's Team has personally been responsible for the marketing of some of the successful subdivisions off Potter Hill Road.
