Chatham cottage description

If you have small children or would just like some peace and serenity, Blue Skye is for you. Lots of lawn to run and play, but they are back from the street and other houses. Curl up with that book or just close your eyes because you know this house and yard is a perfect getaway.
Hardings Beach - the most popular area beach because of its warmer, calmer water, wide clean sand, and a one mile beach walk to the lighthouse. It's a 2 minute walk with the children along a wide pedestrian sidewalk to the beach. Look for the seals, boats heading into Nantucket Sound, wind surfers, fishermen, the famous fish wiers off shore, and lots of shells to find.
Pick your Hideaway – put that lawn chair under a shade tree or a secluded, sunny spot?
Need to borrow some sand or lawn toys? Look in the garden shed.
Bring your bikes and store them in the garden shed. The Cape Cod Bike Trail goes for 22 miles and is only a 4 minute drive up the road.
Outdoor Private Shower - (please, only one person at a time unless you're in a committed relationship!)
2 Bedrooms – 1 with a queen and 1 with 2 twin beds
Combination Living and Dining room - table will seat 6.
Living room has the TV, DVD, VCR, and coffee table/floor space for games and toys.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1996

              About the owner: The McDonald family welcomes you to our family reunion home, Blue Skye. The Clan MacDonald has its roots on the Isle of Skye in Scotland, hence the name. We have 4 children ranging in age from 20 to 41, 3 of them married, and we have 4 granddaughters with one more due in June. Our youngest daughter is a junior at Allegheny College majoring in fine arts. We are not members of Planned Parenthood but probably should have been. Our 3 married children live in New England, and we frequently travel out from Ohio and use Blue Skye as a gathering place for the families. The main house dining room table has seen many a lobster dinner and late night family remembrances (some of them true). Tom is a retired general contractor. His extra time includes tennis, bagpiping, piano, boating, and golf. Barbara is a residential architect, specializing in home additions and remodeling. She also enjoys working with various service organizations, antique collecting, gardening, and reading.

              Why the Owner Chose Chatham:
              We rented the one bedroom cottage for several years, and when we outgrew the accommodations (the main house and two bedroom we not available), we rented other homes in the area. In 1996, when we found that our friends were selling this property, we took a giant leap into the unknown. It's a wonderful place for grandchildren, and we're thrilled that our children and grandchildren love to come and visit us in Chatham.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              This 2 bedroom house is uniquely situated 100 feet off the street with an expansive lawn and privacy from neighboring multi-million dollar homes. The interior has pine paneled wainscoting throughout, and it is a home that is neat, clean, and easy to maintain. Children have plenty of room to run and play, and parents can always find a quiet place to get away from the activity. There are gardens, both annual and perennial, and the blooming hydrangeas make the property magnificent in the summer. The beach is accessed by a wide sidewalk, and it is only 400 yards away. Go down many times during the day! It's only a 2 minute walk. The property also includes a separate, 5 bedroom house that is 200’ further back on the property and is rented during the summer. The larger house is virtually unseen from your house as it is shielded with numerous trees, bushes, and the car parking area. A 1 bedroom cottage is near the main house; however this is not rented out. One of my children may use it at some point during the summer with her 2 children.
