Property description

Like all good house names, Casa al Mare has two meanings. Casa Al Mare translates from Italian to 'House by the Sea', and it also incorporates the first names of its owners- Mary and Alan. It is truly a dream beach house- nestled right next to the famous Chatham Lighthouse (as seen from the home) and the beautiful Chatham Lighthouse Beach! With the village shops and restaurants just a leisurely walk away, you couldn't possibly find a better location to spend your vacation! Start the day watching the sunrise - or head to the beach for beach yoga - then plan your day! Go to the beach, bike, jog, fish, sail, , golf -or relax in our comfortable furniture - however you spend your time, you will love staying at our home in Chatham! Our home is meticulously maintained inside and out, providing a clean, comfortable and beautiful place to spend your vacation time. Enjoy the video - and picture yourself in Chatham - this summer - as our guests!

Lighthouse Beach

Because I spend most of the year in the Hudson Valley, where having a car is a MUST, I love spending time in Chatham! Most of the time, the car sits in the shell drive. We walk EVERYWHERE. The Lighthouse Beach is just across the street - so we often bring our morning coffee to the lookout and watch the sun rise. Lighthouse Beach Yoga starts at 7:30 every morning, so if you are inclined, bring your towel and $10.00 and begin the day at the world's most beautiful yoga studio. Downtown Chatham has amazing restaurants, great shops and two independent bookstores - and we always walk. Less than a mile from home, we are never hassled with trying to find a parking spot at noon.

There are terrific bike trails on Cape, and access to the Chatham Trail is quite easy. If you are coming from a distance, be sure to contact the local bike shops to reserve a rental ASAP. If tennis is your game, there are many municipal tennis courts available. Golf is my game, and I truly enjoy playing the Chatham Seaside Links. Rent a pull cart - or an electric cart, and enjoy the challenges and scenery from our town course. The Captains Course is in the next town over, and I enjoy the driving range. If you would like to try your hand at clamming, you can get a non-resident permit at the Chatham permit office, just across from the Chatham Airport. Speaking of the airport, our daughter gave us an anniversary gift last year that was one of the best: a one hour ride in a 4-seater prop plane that traveled to Provincetown to Monomoy. Incredible!

Restaurants in Chatham are quite good, and an easy walk from home. If you enjoy cooking, checkout the fish markets and cook your own daily catch. there is so much to do! Be active - relax - enjoy!!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: Our family had vacationed in Chatham for years. When we began to search for a home of our own, we knew we had to find a home in the Old Village. Our home was originally a small livery stable, built in 1796, in service to a small estate called 'Sea Acre'. Over the years, the properties on the estate fell into disrepair. We were one of three families who each bought a separate structure on the property in 1996. Each home has been lovingly restored. We are so fortunate to have such wonderful neighbors and friends. We all look forward to returning to Chatham each summer! Our children have spent the summers together since 1997 - it's like a home-coming every July! In the early days we spent the entire summer in Chatham and our children enjoyed sailing, tennis and the beach with our Chatham neighbors. As our children have grown, we spend less time each summer in Chatham, but we are thrilled that we can share our home with the wonderful guests we have gotten to know over the years. When we are not in Chatham, home for us is in the beautiful Hudson Valley of New York.
