Old Chatham estate description

Huge, sprawling, 6,000 sq ft country estate situated on 10 acres of land which include both a 1/2 acre spring-fed swimming pond with a sand beach and tennis court (hard court). The property features a huge landscaped lawn, massive deck overlooking the lawn, pond and tennis court, a vegetable garden, a fireplace room, eat in stainless steel renovated kitchen, breakfast room, 'great room' surrounded by windows overlooking the property, a greenhouse room, basement play area, large TV room (featuring 42'' plasma TV and numerous couches) and a massive bedroom that has a king bed as well as two single beds. The house itself is an homage to rustic country living, with wood beamed ceilings, wood and stone accents throughout, and furnished giving it a soft, cozy feel. This house is PERFECT for one, two, or three families looking to retreat for a week. See bottom of page for info regarding furnishings / activities.


Furnishings: The property is nicely furnished. There are beds in all the of the bedrooms (some with full beds, some queen, some king), couches all over the house (in the Great room, in the kitchen, in the study, and in the TV room), and numerous tables for dining. There are two 'master bedrooms' which feature the king beds, TVs (with DirectTV), private full bathrooms, walk-in closets, and air conditioning. 4 of the bedrooms (two masters, large dormitory bedroom, and one other) have air conditioning. The rest of the house does NOT have AC. There are tennis rackets and balls, a coal grill, gas grill, all kitchenware, deck chairs, and all sorts of pool floats including an anchored circular float in the middle of the pond that can fit 6 adults, a canoe, and other blow up boats and floats. We have slip'n'slides, badminton/volleyball net, tire swings attached to trees, a wooden swinging garden chaise, and a picnic table on the deck.

You may bring your own linens and towels. There is a $250 linen fee for the use of our linens and towels.

What this house is perfect for: This house is PERFECT for one two or three families seeking to escape from the hustle and bustle of city life and retreat to a true sprawling rustic country estate. It is especially perfect for kids, because a lot of the furnishings have been made with children in mind. There are tons of toys and games, and the pond, tire swings, and lawn make for an especially rewarding time with children. It is also great for adults - read on the deck overlooking the property (we have a huge book collection), play tennis, go for a walk or run, swim or fish in the pond (small mouth bass), or sunbathe on the beach, cook, or enjoy a movie in the TV room.
