Chatham house description

Gorgeous custom built home completed in 1995 on secluded wooded lot on the end of a cul-de-sac that backs up to conservation land. Four well appointed bedrooms, two with queens, and two with two singles. One half bath on the main level, one shared hall bath on the second floor, and one full private master bath. The entire home is extremely well appointed and boasts clean, classic lines with colonial furniture while still providing all the modern amenities.

The main floor has gorgeous unobstructed views of the woods that surround the house on three complete sides. A cozy family room boasts a new 47' HDTV with a complete HD channel package. WiFi is also available throughout the home. The family room opens to an open concept kitchen with double oven and newer appliance package and beautiful solid wood cabinets. As avid cooks, we have provided all necessary utensils and equipment for great dinners. The dining room is nestled next to one of two wood burning fire places with a bay window with wood views. The table seats 8 and is a great romantic dinner spot or perfect for games with the family once the plates are cleared away. This opens to a formal living room with the second wood burning fire place for your morning coffee or a late afternoon book. A bedroom with a queen bed finishes off the main floor with coastal decor, great for grandparents and guests.

The second floor has three bedrooms. The first contains two twin beds with a large closet and a great dormer window seat. The second has bunk beds and is great for kids! The third, a gorgeous master bedroom includes a canopy bed with a private full bath and fantastic natural light. Each bedroom includes large closets and coordinated wood bedroom furniture.

The unfinished basement is equipped with a washer and dryer and a large open play space, perfect for four square and other games for the kids. A brand new ping pong table is available for 2014! There is also backyard access from the basement with easy storage of tubes, noodles, beach chairs, and equipment.

A long gravel driveway provides ample parking for 3+ vehicles. The outside of the house provides a fantastic outdoor living space with a huge back deck with full dining set that seats 8. Enjoy a great dinner on the deck while surrounded by nature! A charcoal grill is easily accessible right off the back deck as well as a fantastic outdoor shower. The grassy area behind the home is perfect for wiffle ball tournaments and badminton while the front yard is a perfect place for a quiet cocktail for Mom and Dad!

Please note that the home does not have central air conditioning. Windows throughout home allow for a great cross breeze of cool sea air and oscillating fans are provided in the bedrooms.

Main Street Chatham offers a lot of really nice specialty stores and some great restaurants. Shops include art galleries, clothing stores, gift shops, antiques, music stores, and more. Some of our favorite spots include The Yellow Umbrella (a used and new bookstore), The Candy Manor (a great gourmet candy store with our favorite our the dark chocolate covered pretzels), The Puritan (a beautiful specialty clothing store with quintessential Island wear available), Buffy's Ice Cream (a must on a warm summer night after a dinner out), and

Soft As A Grape (the best spot for good quality Cape Cod and Chatham gear). Of course Cape Cod is world-renowned for its beaches including some of our favorites in Chatham itself include Schoolhouse Pond (right outside our back door, the fresh water is always warm and a great way to relax after a day at the beach or for an entire day), Lighthouse Beach (it sits at the foot of Chatham Light and a great photo op), Harding's Beach (a beach on Nantucket Sound which offers calmer, warmer waters), Ridgevale Beach (another beach located on the Nantucket Sound). Outside of Chatham we enjoy Nauset Beach (located in Orleans and right on the Atlantic Ocean), Cahoon Hollow (an absolute MUST on your visit with stunning dunes and an awesome lunch spot called The Beachcomber), The National Seashore (a National Park which runs from the very northern reaches of the arm of Cape Cod down to Nauset Beach in Orleans). Some other points of interest we love include Chatham Bars Inn (a beautiful old hotel with a fine dining restaurant and a gorgeous spot for afternoon cocktails on the front lawn), The Squire (Chatham's local pub), Chatham A's (our own team part of The Cape Cod Baseball League who play on Veterans Field downtown), the Chatham Fish Pier (where local fisherman bring home their daily catch between 1:00pm and 4:00pm and the seals float around waiting for a snack!) and Shore Road (the most beautiful road in Chatham and a must for a later afternoon drive while the sun is setting).

The places and points of interest mentioned and more are all detailed in the Chatham and Cape Cod guidebooks located in the house. The Cape is a treasure of wonderful family activities and romantic date possibilities and we hope you enjoy your vacation!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: Bob and I live and work in the greater Philadelphia area, Bob in advertising and myself as an RN and clinical coordinator. We raised four children (three boys and one girl) in the same 140-year old victorian house where we still live 31 years later. We absolutely love cooking and spending time in the kitchen as well as enjoying a cocktail on our wrap-around porch or pool-side in the warmer months. Three of our children have settled in the area, two of which are married, with the fourth is living abroad in Japan with his wife. Our family is very close, and we host weekly family dinners, and always gather around our dining room table for holidays and birthdays.

Why the Owner Chose Chatham:
We bought the lot in Chatham in 1994 and construction on our home was completed in 1995 after years of renting on the Cape. As soon as we took the 1/4 mile stroll over the hill and saw the sparkling blue water of Schoolhouse Pond we knew it had to be ours. Our four children grew up spending summers catching tadpoles and frogs at the pond, many firework shows at First Nights on New Years, Thanksgiving feasts, and Easter egg hunts in our home, our eldest was married on the Cape, and our youngest spent her honeymoon here. Dozens of friends and family members have shared memories with us here as well. The house is the perfect mix of seclusion and peace (earning its name as 'Sanctuary') and convenience being only miles from downtown Chatham and local beaches as well as a 1/4 mile from Schoolhouse Pond.
