About the Property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

If you have children or grandchildren, Blue Skye is for you. Lots of lawn to run and play, but they are far from the street and other houses. Curl up with that book or just close your eyes because you know this house and yard is perfect for them.
Hardings Beach - the most popular area beach because of its warmer, calmer water, wide clean sand, and a one mile beach walk to the lighthouse. It's a 2 minute walk with the children along a wide pedestrian sidewalk to the beach. Use the Red Flyer wagon to take the kids down to the beach. Look for the seals, boats heading into Nantucket Sound, wind surfers, fishermen, the famous fish weirs off shore, and lots of shells to find.
Pick your Hideaway - is it the screened porch, front porch swing, a rocking chair under a shade tree, or a sunny spot far away from the badminton or horseshoe action?
Need to borrow some sand or lawn toys? Look under the porch.
Bring your bikes and store them under the porch. The Cape Cod Bike Trail goes for 22 miles and is only a 4 minute drive up the road.
Outdoor Private Shower - (please, only one person at a time unless you're in a committed relationship!)
Dining room table will seat everyone. 8 can easily sit at the porch table, and 6 at the kitchen table.
Den is a separate room with sofa, chairs, internet ready TV with DVD, and coffee table/floor space for games and toys.



Keywords: 300' from the road, quiet, secluded, and with an expansive 1.5 acres of lawn and shade trees., Beautiful gardens and flowering hydrangeas.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: The McDonald family welcomes you to our family reunion home, Blue Skye. The Clan MacDonald has its roots on the Isle of Skye in Scotland, hence the name. We have 4 children ranging in age from 24 to 45, 3 of them married, and we have 5 granddaughters. We are not members of Planned Parenthood but probably should have been. Our 4 children live in New England, and we frequently travel out from Ohio and use Blue Skye as a gathering place for the families. The dining room table has seen many a lobster dinner and late night family remembrances (some of them true). Tom is a retired general contractor. His extra time includes tennis, bagpiping, piano, boating, and golf. Barbara is a residential architect, specializing in home additions and remodeling. She also enjoys working with various service organizations, antique collecting, gardening, and reading.

Why the Owner Chose West Chatham, Chatham, MA, USA:
We rented the one bedroom cottage for several years, and when we outgrew the accommodations (the main house and two bedroom we not available), we rented other homes in the area. In 1996, when we found that our friends were selling this property, we took a giant leap into the unknown. It's a wonderful place for grandchildren, and we're thrilled that our children and grandchildren love to come and visit us in Chatham.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Blue Skye is uniquely situated 300 feet from the sidewalk with an expansive lawn and privacy from other properties. Children have plenty of room to run and play, and parents can always find a quiet place to get away from the activity. There are gardens, both annual and perennial, and the blooming hydrangeas make the property magnificent in the summer. The beach is accessed by a wide sidewalk, and it is only 300 yards away. Go down many times during the day! It's only a 2 minute walk. The property also includes a separate 2 bedroom cottage that is rented during the summer; however this cottage is located by the road, is 200' from your house, and is shielded by numerous trees, bushes, and the car parking area. A 1 bedroom cottage is near your house; however this is not rented out. One of my children may use it a some point during the summer with her 2 children.
