The home, which features hardwood floors and a wood-shingle roof, includes three gathering spaces, with a screened-in, 340-square-foot porch overlooking a 650-square-foot inground concrete pool, the real estate firm said. There’s also a 150-square-foot bath house/cabin in the backyard, according to property records.

The home contains two full stories of living space, and a finished half-story on top of that, along with an unfinished basement, according to public records. The home is topped by a two-story chimney, according to the town’s online property tax assessment database.

The property is located near Napatree Point and East Beach, and local attractions include Ocean House, a five-star hotel and resort, and the renowned Merry-Go-Round, one of the nation’s longest continuously operating merry-go-rounds, according to Mott & Chace.

The property was most recently valued by Westerly property assessors in 2023 as being worth $2.28 million, according to the town’s online property tax evaluation database. Of that, $1.65 million is attributed to the land itself, according to the database.

Donna Simmons, of Mott & Chace, represented the sellers and facilitated for the buyers, according to the firm.

According to the warranty deed, a public record of the sale, the home was sold by Michael Brown and Renee Al-Sarraf, of Montclair, N.Y. The property was purchased by Hedgerow LLC, a limited liability company established this year in Rhode Island and managed by Brian McCormick, of Westerly, and Lisa Mannix, of Wilton, Conn.
