Property 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 (stove, microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator with icemaker, blender, toaster oven, 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. Walk out lower level includes bunk bed with futon and a new full 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) . cable TV & hi-speed internet. Newly installed 80 gal water heater, plus basement dehumidifier. Both the public Cockle Cove and Ridgevale Beachs & the more secluded jetty beach are a short 2-block walk from the house on a dead end 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.
The town of Chatham is about 3 miles away with great shops and restaurants. The ice cream shop at the end of the road is wonderful for the whole family. Small roads, little traffic, great walking, jogging, biking. The rail/bike trail is about 1 mile from the house.

Loads of privacy : The 3 levels of the house make it possible for everyone to have some space. Private parking for 2+ cars as well as a garage (in case of rain). Internet (Wifi) connection also included.

Easy access to shops and restaurants: Downtown Chatham, just 10 minutes away, offers wonderful shops and world class dining opportunities. The bike trail connection is about 1 mile from the house, with rental options nearby. Loads of vacation fun with miniature golf, great beaches, fishing, boating, wind surfing, and wonderful fresh seafood.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1980

About the owner: The property has been in the family since 1941, when an original cottage was built. This home was built in 1969, with loads of upgrades since that time (renewed baths, updated kitchen, hardwood floors and A/C, 80 gal water heater for showers for the whole family) . The secluded, yet convenient location is a perfect get-away. At night, the star gazing is amazing with no city lights to interfere. We Summer in a nearby house and are available to provide suggestions for where to eat, fish, swim and more. As a child, I (Merry) spent Summers here with my family and now our children and grandchildren love it too!

Why the Owner Chose Chatham:
Chatham is the best of Cape Cod ! great location, bike trails, quaint downtown area, concerts and restored movie theatre and more ! Truly a destination with both east and south side beaches. Possibly seals on the Lighthouse beach. Wonderful restaurants...something for everyone. Easy beach access, bike trail, or just quiet relaxing on the deck.

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 and even a movie theatre. We love the small town friendly feel of a great library.
