Property description

Everything in this Chatham retreat feels fresh and new, completely rebuilt in 2008. You'll find hotel-quality accommodations for 3 couples or a family, with all the comforts of home.

When you arrive you will find that our architect maximized light, air, and views, with great flow from the upstairs vaulted bedroom ceilings to the open plan downstairs. The spacious front and back decks overlook gorgeous landscaping and neighboring woods. From daffodils to hibiscus, we designed our organic gardens for lots of color throughout the spring, summer, and fall seasons, attracting abundant wildlife.

We are in a great location, walk along protected wetlands to lovely Forest Beach, where you can find your own stretch of sand away from the crowds. It's also a short walk to a great cafe and wonderful upscale restaurant.

Inside, each of the three bedrooms has its own bathroom, TV, DVD, and radio/Ipod port. The master suite has a tempurpedic queen bed and full bath. The other two bedrooms can be made up as twin sets or king, and contain all new pillowtop mattresses with hotel quality linens. There is a brand new ping pong table in our basement rec-room/art studio, and even beach towels are provided.

Our home is also handicap accessible, complying as much as was possible to ADA requirements on the entire first floor. Both front and back decks are wheelchair accessible. The downstairs bedroom flows into a shower bathroom with grab bars and also grab bars around the toilet. The upstairs back bathroom with shower also has grab bars. The upstairs bedrooms have a lofty feel with lots of windows and light, and we installed two separately zoned central air and heating systems (one upstairs and one downstairs) for your year round comfort.

Our living room, with two six foot sofas, two comfy club chairs, and extensive library for all ages, makes a great room to entertain and enjoy a book, game, or movie with a nice fire. This space flows into a brand new cook's kitchen, fully equipped with whatever you may need for any kind of feast. We have ample dishware and cookware for you and all your guests - no foraging for a corkscrew here! All of our appliances are top quality, including an extra full size refrigerator/freezer in the basement for your overflow drinks and produce.

An eight to ten minute walk from our front door leads you to Forest Beach on Nantucket Sound for swimming, birding, and water sports. If you want to drive your gear down there, parking is free. Following Forest Beach or the marsh path towards Chatham town, you will find our beautiful estuary. Watch the tides come and go, enjoy the shells and other ocean treasures at low tide. Go the other way on Forest Beach Road and you can easily walk to the Box Office Cafe, Pisces Restaurant, the Cape Cod bicycle path and Highway 28. A five to ten minute drive takes you to the Cape Cod National Seashore and all kinds of beaches, both fresh and salt water ponds, and eateries.

We also enjoy a small public park, a five minute walk from our front door, which includes a tennis court, basketball hoop, and jungle gym for the little ones. Our neighborhood is quiet and safe, with woodsy shortcuts between beaches and plenty of nature for the whole family to explore. Our own gardens are organically grown and we include numerous native plants as well as the old favorites, with a nice lawn and eye for seasonal color changes.

Our expansion of the original family home has created a wonderful and workable vacation getaway, where groups can gather for fun and scatter for privacy. In addition to the three bathrooms, we have a spacious outside shower with ramp and grab bars, and there is ample off street parking.

The ping pong rec room in our basement shares the space with a large laundry area and art studio with lots of natural light. There are two tv's down there and sofa, with plenty of room to fold and iron clothes or just hide out.

At every turn we have provided for our renters all those comforts that we ourselves enjoy, with amenities that will exceed your every expectation. Once you have experienced Paul & Mary's Place, you'll never want to go anywhere else.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: I am an artist, mostly painter, specializing in wildlife, such as endangered species, and pet portraits. I have been lucky to enjoy both coasts, living most of the year in Redondo Beach California.

Why the Owner Chose Chatham:
My husband and I inherited the original home from his family and we began our remodeling in 2007.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Mostly I enjoy the fresh water pond swimming - this is not to be had where I live in LA and I love watching the trout and turtles swimming around in that spring fed environment. I also adore eating seafood and the Cape has the best.
