Property description

Our Charming cottage is located three blocks from Ridgevale Beach and Nantucket Sound. This season we have one week remaining available in July 11 and two weeks available June 13. The cottage has two zone air conditioning, Three bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, two with Jacuzzis, fireplace in living room, separate TV viewing areas, very well equipped kitchen with washer & dryer offers all the amenities of a new home. over 500 sq ft of well-furnished deck space with outside shower and bird feeding station nearby provides exceptional space for outdoor living, dining and relaxation.

Ridgevale Beach: The cottage is filled with comfort and charm but the beaches, both salt and fresh water, are the biggest attraction. From the cottage it is a short walk down to the Sound and any time of day or night there is a new aspect of sea and sky. The walk is very short but takes you past the marshes of Bucks Creek where the egrets are always feeding and the beach plums and rose hips are ripening. In the summer there is a small beach shop at the edge of the beach where sail boats can be rented. The two wooden bridges over Bucks creek leading to the beach have been used many times in wedding photos.

#6 Brittain. : The cottage itself has gone through five revisions but was built just after the war by Brittain himself. In the latest revision (2005) a second floor was added and that can provide a view of Monomoy Island. The floors are pine and decor could be called old Cape but the ammenities are all new. There are some antitques and curiousities valued mostly by the owner but the emphasis is comfort. The living space is really the two level deck. Besides entertaining and eating, we shower outside under the sun or stars. The bedrooms are ensuite and very suitable for children and parents upstairs and grandparents down stairs.

Chatham: Chatham has a reputation for charm. It was first a fishing village and today has a commercial fishing pier which invites visitors to view the operation. In summer there a two main events in the town. First is the band concert every Friday night, once featured in National Geographic Magazine. The second is the baseball games, popular as the college players are being scouted for the 'majors'. The shops and restaurants deliver excellent quality as does the Monomoy Theater and the Ohio University players who perform there.

Owner info

About the owner: I have lived in Kinsale in Ireland for the past five years but the Cape and Chatham have been our family vacation location for 40 years. I had intended to retire to the Cape in this cottage but then I married a retired Irish farmer so here we are. Kinsale is on the water, as is Chatham, so there is that connection.

Why the Owner Chose South Chatham:
My parent's vacation/retirement home is very nearby. My father found the cottage, I bought it. It was a perfect restoration project for me and another reason to bring all of our family together in Chatham over the past 30 years. Buck's creek empties into the Sound at Ridgevale Beach. It was the Bucks who built my parent's vacation /retirement home.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
In the renovation/reconstruction, I tried to include features that I thought typified the Cape. I had my family and visitors in mind and privacy is an issue for me. It seems every year there is just one more small thing to add or complete. and that is part of the fun for me and I hope for you
