                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1982

                  About the owner: My husband and I have owned our custom home since it was built in 1982. We personally ensure that our home is well maintained and properly prepared to our standards prior to each rental.

                  Why the Owner Chose Chatham:
                  Our location is unique. The salt marsh view is very tranquil. We enjoy being there any season of the year. Foliage of the salt marsh changes throughout the year. We enjoy watching the ducks, blue heron, and other wildlife on the marsh. We have seen sea turtles and night owls. We enjoy just being there and breathing the clean and refreshing salt air.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The layout of the home provides separate areas which often accommodates various age groups. The large lot provides a private setting with unique view. The open living room and dining area opening onto the expansive deck provide a comfortable area for relaxation or entertaining. Older folks have commented on the benefit of negotiating few steps from the driveway to the main living area, to the bedrooms, to the deck. Active age groups have commented on the benefit of the spacious separate lower area for activities, Ping-Pong, second TV viewing area.
