This is the essence of Quonochontaug. Welcome to this truly one of a kind property in East Beach in Quonnie. This amazing property rests on nearly 2.3 acres and encompasses a main house of 4,156 square feet of living space AND a guest house of 2,913 square feet. The main house was built in 2004 while the guest house was built in 2006. One of the most most remarkable features of this spectacular property is the restoration of the historic dance hall that was originally part of the Sea Breeze Inn. The guest house is simply stunning with the memorabilia in the Dance Hall that was originally part of the Sea Breeze Inn. Restored to perfection, this amazing room will simply captivate you. According to the Quonochontaug Historical Society, the inn called, the Kenyon House, was originally on the property. In 1940 it was purchased by Otto and Mimi Nurmi of Westerly and re-opened as the Sea Breeze Inn. The Kenyon House had a separate building with a bowling alley and a dance hall. When that was destroyed in the great hurricane of 1938, the Nurmis built a new dance hall for the Sea Breeze Inn. The owner has done a beautiful restoration of the dance hall. There is cathedral ceilings of exposed wood, skylights, maple floors and a magnificent stone fireplace. It features heating and air conditioning, sinks, refrigerator and large table. The big room accommodates a piano, pool table, air hockey table, and a jukebox stocked with oldies as a high tech projector for watching movies. Plus there is a train traveling atop the beam that is utterly captivating. It's a great place for parties after a long day at the beach as well as family functions, fun for kids and adults— and, of course, dancing. From the dance hall, a doorway leads to the beautiful guest house which has a large bar/family room with vaulted ceiling, radiant heated tile floor and French doors to an exterior deck for outdoor barbeques. The room is equipped with two refrigerated drawers, dishwasher, farmer's sink, and built-in microwave. Off the family room is a spacious master bedroom with a white vaulted ceiling. The master bath has a whirlpool tub, and a spectacular shower along with an elegant stained-glass window. There is also one half bath and an office/guest space. A short walk from the guest house, through grounds with stone walls, is the main house which offers a gorgeous open floor plan. You will find a spacious kitchen with a fabulous corian island, a living room and family room with a stone fireplace. To add to the perfection there are soaring high ceilings with oak beams and wide planked hickory floors. This entire space is filled with natural sunlight. There are French doors which lead to a patio for family barbeques. The first floor also has a large glass ensconced studio which offers an abundance of opportunities for another guest area…. an office… or anything that fits your lifestyle. Upstairs, the home has three en-suite bedrooms. The master bedroom suite has plenty of built-in storage along with a master bath with a coastal flair. Down the hall are two more en-suite bathrooms. To add to the perfection this property has QEBA East Beach privileges.
