About the Property

4 Large Bedrooms, 3 Full Baths, Sleeps 8

Not spoiled as a child? Now's the time! It's absolutely okay to fall in love with the tranquility surrounding our Home By-The-Sea, perfectly normal! It's every bit as spectacular as its surroundings. You'll spend countless hours here pretending not to be distracted by the View. Whatever your passion, you'll likely find it here! Enjoy the elegance of cocktails served on our Deck, with dynamic Ocean vistas & color splashed sunsets; or a classic Barbecue on the lawn of our Acre lot. One thing is certain: Families love it here! Kids race through our manicured trails & excitedly head for the Dock with their crab nets. Teens love our Sports Field, Gameroom, and extensive Video Library. Guests note wonderful memories of Lobster Feasts in our Dining Room, relaxing by our superb Fireplace, and swaying back & forth on our huge Hammock amidst gentle breezes on a lazy Summer day. This truly is a place once discovered/never forgotten!

Our Home, ideal for hosting Family and friends, is situated on an invitingly tranquil Acre with Ocean Views that captivate the soul. The Quarterboard out front aptly expresses what you will experience here. It reads: Pax et Quies, Latin for Peace and Quiet. Inside you will find a beautiful and spaciously designed Home ---- featuring a brand new Kitchen designed by the premier Cabinetmaker on the Cape. Watch the shimmering colors of the Sea from a breathtaking vantage point; our Ocean View Deck has all the attributes of a Family Room with a 10,000 foot Ceiling. The interior of the Home revolves around a large Living Room with an incredible floor to cathedral ceiling Fireplace. Four Bedrooms, two on each wing of the Home, beckon weary Guests at day's end. A private Den/Computer Room is adjacent to the Kitchen. The finished Basement has a wonderful Gameroom with Library, Pool Table, Bar, Television, Stereo Receiver, and CD PLayer.


Our sprawling Acre has trails, a huge Sports Field, large Picnic Table, and a fantastic Hammock. Nantucket Sound sunsets and invigorating salt air are the norm here! Enjoy an outdoor Dinner, chase rabbits, or watch the romantic Chatham fog roll in on a Summer's eve. Stroll down to our Saltwater Dock .......... a child's paradise! Grab the crab nets and minnow traps. Launch a sailboat or kayak onto Nantucket Sound. The Dock, just steps away, is a very popular place, known affectionately to the neighbors as Buck's Creek Yacht Club. Chatham has some of the finest Beaches anywhere on the East Coast. Its position on the Cape is unique in that it is bordered by three bodies of water: Atlantic Ocean, Nantucket Sound, and Pleasant Bay. Water sports abound! In fact, you may walk to Hardings Beach from our Home. A short 2.5 mile drive brings you to three freshwater ponds. Schoolhouse Pond, located on Sam Ryders Road, is an overwhelming hit with both kids and parents! The Cape Cod Rail Trail (Biking/Walking) is a mile from our doorstep.

Our Home is a wonderful marriage of hospitality and affordability! One of the truly cherished pastimes here is 'Harvesting the Quiet'. In fact, timing Dinner so it coincides with the Ocean Sunset is practically a ritual. Maybe one of the best ways to unwind here is with a knife and fork! Locally caught Lobster is, not unexpectedly, widely enjoyed at this Home By-The-Sea. All the implements for a Lobster Feast are found here in abundance. With Family & Friends, it might be just the right time to succumb to that perfect Chardonnay! Our Home is absolutely ideal for Family Reunions, and a romantic spot to discover the restorative powers of History, Salt Air, Sea, and Sand. As a recent Guest explained, 'your Home is two parts Luxury and one part Flip Flops ...... so much is done for us as Guests, that's why we love coming here'. Words we, as Owners, cherish hearing!


At our Home, the ways to kick back and relax are as different as each Chatham sunrise and sunset, but you could get used to the drill. When was the last time you spent some quality time with you? Write yourself a U.O.U. Cap off your day with a tranquil 'Stroll in the Sand Dunes' to Stage Harbor Lighthouse along the shores of Nantucket Sound, which transforms into a liquid mirror as the evening sun falls below the horizon. Everything here is vibrantly intoxicating ----- so embrace the surroundings, delight in the moment, and let us show you what Hospitality really means! Life certainly is better at the Beach; you will get accustomed to that! The true magic of Chatham is that when you leave it, you never really do. So ....... get wet, walk on a beach that has no footprints, discover your inner Beach Bum! You're also sure to fall in love with our quaint Cape Backroads, and get totally lost - ---- but who cares? All play & no work ........ this is a problem? After arriving in Chatham, the urge to tear up your return ticket is going to be overwhelming!

The greatest Vacations begin before you get there --- with Anticipation! After all, the Perfect Getaway indeed ranks high on life's Priority List. Want a Vacation Home that loves you back? We've got one for your Family on an eminently tranquil Acre By-The-Sea. We're passionate about many things, most especially your Stay at our Home!

As the tried and true cliche points out, a picture is worth a thousand words. So, please take a moment to CLICK on the ADDITIONAL INTERIOR PHOTO Link at the BOTTOM of the ACCOMMODATION & AMENITIES SECTION BELOW. It will take you to the PERSONAL Website for our Chatham Home, and you'll find a TON of in-depth visuals of both the Interior/Exterior of the property, and the lovely seaside Village of Chatham. Not to pat ourselves on the back, but it's a great website ........ you won't be disappointed! It will, as radio newscaster Paul Harvey liked to say, indeed give you 'the rest of the story'!
