Chatham house description

Walk to Cockle Cove beach from this secluded home with a water view from the deck, with gas barbecue. The house sits on 2-acres of woods on a quiet private road & has a nice clearing for badminton. The ground level includes a full bath, laundry area (with washer and dryer) and family room with a bunk bed futon for overflow guests. On the sunny south facing main level of the house there are 2 bedrooms, a full bath, fully equipped kitchen (microwave, dishwasher, blender, lobster pot & coffee maker), living room and dining area plus a large 300 sq ft deck. The large upper loft level is a 3rd bedroom with a 1/2 bath. Comfy newer beds, living & dining furniture make this a true vacation get away. Free standing wood stove completes the living-room area. Always an ocean breeze through the wooded lot, plus newly installed AC (if needed) . Free long distance phone service, cable TV & hi-speed internet. Both the public Cockle cove Beach & the more secluded jetty beach are a short 2-block walk from the house on a small sandy rd, safe for the kids.


This property offers incredible privacy all within an easy walk to the nearby beach. Great bird watching from the deck or at the beach, gentle breezes day and night and loads of stars on clear nights, without the lights of the city. The beach is perfect for small children as it is very shallow and the change in tide offers loads of variety for beach combing. Beach walkers will enjoy the walk all the way to a distant light house. The public beach is groomed and guarded... nearby secluded beach offers a deep hole for great swimming and a channel for floating on the changing tide.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1980

                          About the owner: The property has been in the family since 1941, when the original cottage was built. This home was built in 1969, with lots of upgrades since that time. The secluded, yet convenient location is a perfect get-away. At night, the star gazing is amazing with no city lights to interfere. Our children and now our grandchildren love to visit.

                          Why the Owner Chose Chatham:
                          Chatham is the best of Cape Cod ! great location, quaint downtown area, concerts and movies and more ! Truly a destination with both east and south side beaches. Possibly seals on the Lighthouse beach. Wonderful restaurants...something for everyone.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Truly a community with the feel of a small town, with all of the charm AND conveniences for a great vacation.
