Property description

This is a lovely home with a European flair, private and idyllic with its own 200 feet lake front and clean water for swimming. From the house and garden you have beautiful views and complete privacy from neighbors. It is a ranch, built in 1964, has cathedral ceiling in living room and A/C in bedroom. On hot summer days a nice breeze usually comes up from the lake. Avid hikers can walk to JackKnife beach.

Riverbay is a residental area, approx. 1-2 miles to beaches and downtown Chatham. Stop and Shop and nearest restaurant about 1 mile from house. Danish and English guests come here every year. Barbeque in the garden on gas or charcoal while the moon rises over the lake. Sunbathe in privacy on the deck with a book and a drink. This is called a little paradise by many repeat guests.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1991

About the owner: I bought this house because of its location. The views are beautiful and the lake great for swimming. I grew up and was educated in Denmark, have worked both there and here as a social worker. When I married my late husband we retired to Nevada. Two of my daughters have lived here over two different periods, and for many years I have rented out to private guests and have had many come back year after year. Some day I expect to move back and live here permanently.

Why the Owner Chose Chatham, MA, USA:
The house was not bought for rental purpose, but because this is a nice place to live and have guests. They come from Denmark and England and from all over this country. It has central air-condition.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Here is beauty and privacy. Yet it is close to beaches, to Chatham and Orleans, shops and theaters and golf. Pleasant bay is great for sailing and kayaking.
