Property description

Fabulous Fall 2016 available at $1600 a week. Perfect season with great weather, less traffic and everything open. Walk to Cockle Cove beach from this secluded home with a watter view from the deck, with gas barbecue. The house sits on 2-acres of woods on a quiet private road & has a nice clearing for badminton. The ground level includes a full bath, laundry area (with washer and dryer) and family room with a bunk bed futon for overflow guests. On the sunny south facing main level of the house there are 2 bedrooms, a full bath, fully equipped kitchen (stove, microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator with icemaker, blender, toaster oven, lobster pot & coffee maker), living room and dining area plus a large 300 sq ft deck. The large upper loft level is a 3rd bedroom with a 1/2 bath. Walk out lower level includes bunk bed with futon and a new full bath. Comfy newer beds, living & dining furniture make this a true vacation get away. Free standing wood stove completes the living-room area. Always an ocean breeze through the wooded lot, plus newly installed AC (if needed) . cable TV & wifi . Newly installed 80 gal water heater, plus basement dehumidifier. Both the public Cockle Cove and Ridgevale Beachs & the more secluded jetty beach on warm Nantucket Sound, are a short 2-block walk from the house on a dead end sandy road safe for the kids.


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.

The home. The house is an uncomplicated vacation home with privacy. The home was built up out of the ground take advantage of the view and being in the trees. The house has cable TV, internet with WiFi and hardwired telephone service along with a DVD player. It has a ground floor, a main floor with a 300 sq ft deck and an upper level. The home is continuously being upgraded the main floor has hardwood floors and is air conditioned. The ocean breeze provides for adequate comfort on most days and evenings. The ground floor offers a sitting area along with a bunk bed (the bottom futon sofa can be laid flat to make a double bed as can the sofa in the sitting area.) Occupancy is normally limited to eight people. The kitchen is fully equipped with a large refrigerator (with ice), dishwasher, microwave, oven and range top, toaster oven and coffee maker. There is a gas grill on the deck. The area on the ground level in front of the house provides a space for badmitten, fresbie The landlords live in the adjacent house. There is an outdoor shower with hot water for removing beach sand and enjoying a Cape Cod tradition.

The environment. The location provides a quiet space for perfect beach vacation. Awakening to the bird calls to going to sleep after a watching the stars from the deck it becomes easy to relax. Living in a relatively unpopulated space makes it possible to walk the short distance to either beach to enjoy the moonlight on the water and the stars overhead. If you choose there are many great restaurants nearby, Friday night band concerts downtown Chatham, summer baseball (Chatham A’s), great bike trails, shopping in Chatham, or exploring nature at the Natural History Museum in Brewster or any one of the facilities or activities sponsored by the Audubon Society.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1980

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. 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.
