Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty is pleased to announce the sale of 20 Westerly Road, a historic cottage located in the seaside village of Watch Hill, for $1,950,000. The sale was facilitated by Donna Simmons, Sales Associate with Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty.
The property was originally used as a schoolhouse in Watch Hill from 1852-1901, then later Miss Stevenson’s Little Shop which remained in business for 34 summers until the Great Hurricane of 1938. A decade later, an addition was built onto the house and it became a residential dwelling.
At over $2,000/square foot, this is the highest single family sale price per square foot in the state since September 2018, according to data from the Rhode Island Statewide Multiple Listing Service.
Donna Simmons, who has sold over $35M in real estate over the last year in the Watch Hill and Westerly marketplace says, “Often referred to as the old schoolhouse, this property is very special to the residents of Watch Hill and Westerly. I am thrilled that this historic cottage will continue to have a great steward in the new buyer”.
“We continue to have a strong presence in the high-end market of Watch Hill with both buyers and sellers,” adds Judy Chace, Broker/Co-Owner of Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty.
Ray Mott, Broker/Co-Owner of Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty affirms, “We are impressed by the tireless efforts of our associates in the Watch Hill office.”
