About the owner: For three generations of the Butler family this has been our favorite home. We maintain our seaside cottage with pride, and welcome visitors from all over the world to share its unique character and locale. Originally from New York and New Jersey, we spend our time tending to the Cottage and visiting Cape friends. Rick attended Boston University and Yale, William IV hales from Princeton, and William III was Sheriff of Essex County.
Why the Owner Chose South Chatham, Chatham, MA, USA:
For 57 years our family has owned this cottage and enjoyed watching the Cape change and grow. Our grandparents were antique dealers and decorated the house and gardens in traditional Cape style. Now in its third generation, our family takes pride in maintaining the house in the comfortable and hospitable style that our grandparents, Mildred and Bill, intended.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
As children we played horseshoes and 'hide-and-seek' in the deep woods behind the property, and enjoyed biking, sailing, sun-bathing, and visits to the local theaters. We made day-trips to Province town and slept on the porch, now enclosed. The pine-paneled interior is uniquely Cape Cod-style, and our grandparents' collection of antique furniture and hooked rugs, also their Currier and Ives prints gave the place a special meaning to us. The walls now feature the paintings, prints and drawings of Niamh Butler, artist, our 4th generation!
