About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8) plus A/C
This property offers incredible privacy all within an easy walk to the nearby beach. Great bird watching from the deck or at the beach, gentle breezes day and night and loads of stars on clear nights, without the lights of the city. The beach is perfect for small children as it is very shallow and the change in tide offers loads of variety for beach combing. Beach walkers will enjoy the walk all the way to a distant light house. The public beach is groomed and guarded... nearby secluded beach offers a deep hole for great swimming and a channel for floating on the changing tide.

About the home and location: It has it all!!! Beaches. Ocean. Privacy. Tidal wetlands. Serene location. Fully equipped. Wildlife. Bike trails. Shopping. Chatham has worked to preserve its appearance and character as it existed 50 plus years ago. There are no chain stores in Chatham which provides for a unique place to walk and shop. In keeping with this theme, this home on Chatharbor Lane is situated in a neighborhood unchanged in density over the last 60 years. It provides for a safe and simple place to relax and for families to explore.
Main attraction—the BEACH. This house is on 1.5 acres of wooded grounds with a view to Nantucket sound. Its mature trees provide for considerable privacy. The home is in a small neighborhood of year round residencies and a few seasonal homes—some are rentals. It is a short walk to Cockle Cove Beach, which is maintained by the Town of Chatham. There is a daily fee for use of this guarded beach but only if you choose to drive to the beach but it is only a short walk from the house. This beach is continuous with Ridgevale Beach and a wade in the water onto Hardings Beach (a little less than a mile of beach for sunbathing, swimming, beach sports etc. This beach is groomed from Memorial day to labor day to remove the seaweed providing a long stretch of sandy beach. The water at Cockle Cove Beach is shallow for a good distance out providing for a safe place to enjoy the water. There are no currents or surf at Cockle Cove Beach. There is a local beach extending to the West from the town beach to the effluent from Taylor’s Pond that is more natural and full of shore life. This beach can be accessed by walking a short distance to the West on Chatharbor Lane. This beach is a local beach as there is no way to access this beach by car. It provides a wonderful beach surrounded by wetlands teaming with wildlife for families to enjoy: birding, fishing, beachcombing and lots of small crabs for the kids to catch and release.

About the owner: The property has been in the family since 1941, when an original cottage was built. This home includes loads of upgrades since that time (renewed baths, and kitchen, hardwood floors and A/C, 80 gal water heater for showers for the whole family) . The secluded, yet convenient location is a perfect get-away. At night, the star gazing is amazing with no city lights to interfere and maybe an owl in the woods... We Summer in a nearby house and are available to provide suggestions for where to eat, fish, swim and more. As a child, I (Merry) spent Summers here with my family and now our children and grandchildren love it too!
Why the Owner Chose South Chatham, Chatham, MA, USA:
Chatham is the best of Cape Cod ! great location on warm Nantucket Sound with 4000 foot long shallow beach, nearby bike trails, quaint downtown area, concerts and restored movie theatre and more ! Complete privacy where songbirds (not cars) will wake you. Truly a destination with both east and south side beaches. Possibly seals on the downtown Lighthouse beach. Wonderful restaurants...something for everyone. Easy beach access, bike trail, or just quiet relaxing on the deck.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Truly a community with the feel of a small town, with all of the charm AND conveniences for a great vacation and even a movie theatre. We love the small town friendly feel of Chatham...plus a great library. Friday night band concerts, Chatham A's baseball, great restaurants from family dining to gourmet cuisine.
