Description

Description

You will have the perfect family vacation in this 5 bedroom 4.5 bathroom lovingly cared for home in a sought after private neighborhood within walking distance to the beach and downtown Chatham. This oversized Cape has 4500+ square feet of living space and is air conditioned throughout.

The large wrap around deck provides for comfortable sitting and sunning while overlooking the large landscaped lot, perfect for whiffle ball or croquet. The deck is also equipped with a gas grill and provides a nice space and table for Al fresco dining.

The eat-in kitchen has a large table and chairs as well as an island with seating for four more. A Bosch dishwasher, stainless steel refrigerator, two built in wall ovens and lots of dishes and glassware make this just what the family chef needs for preparing delicious snacks and meals. There is also a formal dining room which can double as a puzzle or game table without interfering with everyday meals.

The large living room is comfortably furnished (sofa recently reupholstered), has ceiling fan, flat screen tv (not shown in pictures) and a cathedral ceiling. From here you go to the first floor master bedroom suite complete with its own bathroom, (his and her sinks), shower and a two person jacuzzi. It is completed with a king sized bed (which can also be made up as two twins).

The first floor also has a cozy den with desk for those needing to take some work on vacation, pocket doors for privacy and another flat screen tv. Also, on the first floor is a half bath, a separate laundry area(no running down to the basement to do laundry) and some additional cabinet space.

From the living room you ascend the staircase to the hallway with balcony overlooking the downstairs and out to the yard. From this hallway there are three bedrooms and two baths. One bedroom serves as the ''upstairs'' master with queen bed, en suite bath and a large sitting area. The second and third upstairs bedrooms are Jack N Jill sharing a bathroom. One has a queen bed and the other two twins.

The fifth bedroom is the ''bonus room'' over the garage offering complete privacy with its own full bathroom, and flat screen TV, this room has a queen and two twins-perfect for the teens, Nanny, or the couple with the new baby who don't want to disturb the rest of the household.

This home has many repeat tenants and a very high tenant satisfaction. The in-season weeks always sell out.

As the saying goes--''Its all about location''.

    Wedding for my daughter

    The home was beautiful and just the right size for our family wedding for my daughter. The house was immaculately clean and very comfortable, we never felt like we were in someone else's home. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen was fully stocked with all the necessary equipment. Moving around the cars to meet the requirements of not parking on the road was a little challenging but we were able to do it with the help from
    Paul and thank him for letting us use his driveway for additional parking. We were very pleased with everything about the home and it made our wedding week very comfortable for us. Thank you to Paul and the Howes's family for sharing their home with us. show more show less

    Absolutely Delightful Home

    This is without without a doubt a one of a kind home. Great property with lots of space both inside and out that is well maintained. The natural light that comes through all those beautiful windows is amazing. The location is ideal, making it easy to get to downtown and beaches. Paul is great. Always responds quickly if you need to reach out to him for anything. We look forward to returning again for our next family vacation.

    Amazing Home for a Great Vacation

    This home has it all. Wonderful amenities, fully equipped kitchen large enough for everyone to gather. Morning coffee on the huge deck overlooking the back lawn is ideal. There is also a separate area on the deck for outdoor dining as well. My family has been coming to Chatham for over 40 years and this is by far one of the best homes we have ever stayed at. The location is perfect. Just a short walk to town and Oyster Pond.. It's a beautiful, quiet neighborhood. Can't say enough about this lovely home, Paul McGrath is great at managing the home. He is very prompt in returning emails, phone calls, etc. show more show less

    Beautiful and spacious

    Our recent stay at this property was extremely nice and relaxing. The beautiful and spacious five bedroom home was close to town and conveniently located for Chatham's attractions. I cannot say enough for how helpful and thoughtful Paul and Virginia were to help us prepare for our wonderful family vacation. Carol and Doug

    Chatham dream house.

    The size and location of this beautiful house made for a perfect vacation. Not all five bedroom homes have large common areas, ie dining, kitchen, living room, deck, . This house does! And the bedrooms and bathrooms were all spacious as well. One day we had visitors who stayed for a meal and the dining room easily fit 10 of us! The kitchen is fully equipped, and the outdoor Weber grill got a workout. The house is located on a quiet, private road with similar sized homes and is an easy walk to Chatham's shops. show more show less

    Besides this house being awesome in size, the location is amazing! Love being able to walk into town, walk to the Light and walk to the beach! Great for our extended family, plenty of room for everyone to spread out and then gather in the main living room when we wanted to around the fire. Great memories were made this past week!

    Paul- who manages the property was great as usual, my 3rd time working with him and he is just so accommodating and prompt getting back to you with any questions that you might have. He's a real gem! show more show less

    Wonderful Home, great for large group

    I can't say enough about this home, and the location!! I've rented many homes, and this is by far one of the best! So spacious, extremely clean and well kept, every amenity you could want — kitchen supplies, dishes, pots and pans, gadgets, — marvelous gas grill with extra canister, soaps in the bathrooms, beach chairs, a second fridge in garage, a large yard and expansive deck.

    The neighborhood is a quiet dead end loop, houses spaced far apart - very private. Nice moonlit walk around the neighborhood.

    Paul the property manager was great to work with and very responsive and helpful.

    Would def go back!

    Great house for large families

    Our extended family of 10 had a great week at this house. It is clean, well appointed, and had plenty of space for our family. I highly recommend this home, which is very close to town as well as to great restaurant and beaches. We enjoyed yoga at Chatham Lighthouse beach, paddle boarding, Nauset Beach, Stage Harbor Beach, and, on one cloudy morning, a nice walk and tour of Atwood Museum down the street. We made a lot of great memories and look forward to renting this home again.

    I went to Chatham in the Spring of 1977 to attend a conference at CBI. It was my first ever visit but I immediately knew it wouldn't be my last. In June 1980 we started looking for a second home on Cape Cod--it didn't take long to decide that Chatham was where we wanted to be. After looking at numerous properties we were lucky in September of 1982 to see a newspaper ad for this house. It was love at first site--quality construction, a super fabulous location and it felt like home.

    We were lucky! At that time is was a sprawling three bedroom, 2 bath all on one floor home. As our family continued growing (and getting married) we knew it was time to expand. We added approximately 2,000 square feet mostly as a second level - to include two more bedrooms and two ore bathrooms plus 2 large common rooms.

    Every time I plan on going there I feel as excited as I was when we first owned it. It is a special place.

    What is special about this property?
    Location, location, location. Quiet neighborhood on a private road yet a 10 minute walk to the Oyster Pond and a 15 minute walk to the heart of downtown Chatham. For an after dinner stroll head down the street to Stage Harbor or walk the ''popular loop''.
    The rooms are spacious and comfortable and there are 12 of them so an ideal place for your family/group to enjoy each others company yet still be able to have some private space and quiet time.

    Just about a mile from the Bike trail or head in the other direction to the Lighthouse Beach.

    The lot is large and has a flat area in the back for whiffle ball, croquet, corn whole or just playing tag and blowing bubbles.

    This house has hosted many memory making events for my family as well as the families of numerous other satisfied tenants over the years. Sixtieth wedding anniversary, several 80th birthdays, multi-generational family gatherings with people descending from all across the country or the globe.

    I had one tenant for the month of July who came back every year for 25 years until such time as her health prevented it. In her obituary it was mentioned that her most favorite place on earth was the house she rented in Chatham for the month of July.



    What is special about your town?
    How could you not love this town? Miles and miles of shore line, Summer Theater, weekly band concerts, Cape Cod Summer baseball league, any type of restaurant your palette desires. Don't forget golf, tennis, biking, paddle boarding and of course SHOPPING. Lots of boutiques to browse and buy. Chatham is a destination and a great place to spend your vacation.
