Chatham house description

Located on a quiet, safe cul-de-sac, the property is sited directly on Taylor's Pond with over 250 feet of pond frontage. View the sunrise from the deck overlooking the pond. (See photos.) Taylor's Pond is a salt water tidal pond that meets Nantucket Sound via Mill Creek--perfect for kayaking, canoeing, or small motor boats. (Local vendors rent kayaks by the week. They deliver too.) The houses on the Pond are quintessential cape architecture.

Starting at the house, it's a 1/2 mile walk to Forest Beach (facing south), 2 miles to Harding's Beach (a very popular family beach in Chatham, faces south) and a 4-mile drive to the center of downtown Chatham. Access the water at the property's edge wearing your clogs or shellshoes for kayaking, canoeing or boating. From there, it's a 10-minute kayak ride to a small beach (facing south) that is reachable only by water. A pretty bike path, with a direct and easy run to Chatham center, is only a half mile away.

The house is a 4-season house with central AC, heat, and gas fireplace. There are three bedrooms and 2 full baths. The master bedroom (queen) and a second bedroom (2 twins) are on the main floor. (see photos) The bathroom on the first floor has just been completely renovated and has an oversized shower with a bench seat and a heated floor. A third bedroom (2 twins) is on the lower level. There is a ping-pong table on the lower level with games and puzzles for rainy or lazy days Property has wireless Internet, a gas grill, and a flat screen t.v. All linens (bedding, bath and beach towels) are included. RENTAL IS FOR 4 PERSONS MAXIMUM.
