Description

Description

The minute you pass through the door into the fully equipped Chef's kitchen with its cherry cabinets, Bosch and Electrolux stainless steel appliances, and wet bar you will know-''this is a special family home, not just a traditional rental.''
From the kitchen, you will step down into the 400 plus square foot sun room with its brick floor, gas log fireplace, comfortable wrought iron furniture, a large flat screen TV and a table for dining. This room is a magnet for gathering and overlooks the patio and backyard. If you want al fresco dining you can arrange the tables from the two patios to accommodate 12.

From the sunroom, you will step up into the formal dining room for eating or for card playing or puzzles. From there you enter one of the four large common rooms. This room has a gas log fireplace, large bay window with window seat and plenty of room for many to gather and share memories or for one or two people to sneak away and enjoy some quiet time.

When heading for the first floor bedrooms and baths you will pass the cozy den on your left with its queen sleep sofa and pocket doors. These doors allow for privacy if the need arises to use this room as a sixth bedroom. There are four more rooms on the first floor.

The first floor Master suite has its own bath, a queen bed, and twin trundle beds. It is adjacent to a very large study with gas fireplace and comfortable leather furniture, flat screen TV, desk and printer for those who have to work. The study overlooks the second patio and the gardens at the rear of the home. This can be a family suite or can be perfect for a couple wishing to have their own private space.
The other two bedrooms on the first floor each have two twin beds and share a bath off of the hallway. There are pictures of all of these rooms with the listing. All five bedrooms plus the den and sunroom have ceiling fans in addition to central air.

You now ascend the bridal staircase to the second floor. At the top of the stairs to your left, you will see the Great Room with its wet bar, distant views of the water and steps leading up to the roof deck. If you look to the right of the stairs you will see the magnificent Red Room with it four poster bed, private sitting area (that is also a full-size sleep sofa) and your own very special black and white bath. The bath has a cast iron soaking tub and a rainforest shower. The room is perfect for the bride to be and her attendants prior to the wedding (many brides to be have stayed here, including my own two daughters).

The second bedroom on this level (the Blue Room) has a queen size and a twin size bed. There is a fourth bath in the hallway that services this bedroom as well as general guests. The Great Room has numerous 6-foot windows that overlook the property. In addition to the wet bar, it also has a large flat screen TV and tables for playing games.

The easily accessible roof deck has reclining chairs for sunning and three tables that seat twelve. From here there are distant seasonal water views-sometimes as far as the Atlantic. There are also views of the Mill Pond and the drawbridge.
The outside lot is professionally landscaped with a lush green lawn and a wide long expanse at the rear of the house for lawn games or just relaxing.

The closest Beach, Oyster Pond, is just a 10-minute walk away and downtown is a 15-minute walk. There you will find many restaurants and shops. Veterans Field, the home of the Chatham Anglers, is less than a mile away. The entrance to the Cape Cod Rail Trail for biking off of Crowell Road is about a mile away.

This location is ideal--convenient yet quiet.

Anxious to return next year

What a special place. Walk to the beach, walk to town, walk to the park. Perfect location. Tons of room, updated bathrooms, lots of kitchen supplies, beautiful yard, great roof deck with partial water views. Really enjoyed ourselves and already looking at dates when we can return next year.

Fantastic Stay in Chatham

Our extended family enjoyed a wonderful week at Paul's home in Chatham. The comfort and beauty of the home, as well as the perfect location, led everyone to have a great time. We can't wait to return.

Pleasure to say we had a wonderful experience on our recent stay at Cape. Starting with beautiful landscape to well equipped Kitchen to luxurious living rooms, spotless bathrooms and spacious bed rooms. It turned out to be more then we expected as depicted on the website. The Sun room and Backyard patio was THE BEST! Downtown Chatham and clean beaches was all worthwhile.We highly recommend this beautiful house to have the best experience at Cape.

Stayed at Paul's house with a group of Harvard Business School students over labor day weekend. We came with sky-high expectations given the property's phenomenal reviews - and they were surpassed. The house is simply stunning. The furniture is so beautiful, and there's everything you could possibly need and WAY more available (about 5 different sets of wine / champagne glasses e.g.). Feels like luxury stay at a mansion. It's very obvious that Paul himself spends time here, and this couldn't be further from a "summer rental" home. This brings me to Paul himself - Paul is wonderful. Super responsive throughout, and very kind. He took care of my every concern, no matter how minute. The last day, he even let us stay longer than originally agreed to because we wanted to drive back later. House itself is in absolutely fabulous location, easy walk to town and beach. The street the house is on is one of the nicest streets in Chatham. I'm very thankful Paul let us be his guests, and we'll be certain to be back soon. show more show less

This is a lovely, immaculate home with abundant spaces both inside and outside to relax. The kitchen is well stocked, which made it easy to prepare meals at home. Perfectly located on a private road a short walk from town, the beach and many restaurants. The owner, Paul, was very responsive to our many questions and was extremely helpful in making suggestions for places to eat and sights to see. I highly recommend!

The house is in a very quiet neighborhood, essentially no traffic. The posted picture does not it justice, it feels larger. The house is furnished with love and attention to detail. All things worked fine and the very good german washing machine and dryer in the large basement are a nice plus. Chatham and the beaches are in walking distance. We would love to go back .

We stayed at this beautiful property during Memorial Day weekend and had a great time. The house was well-equipped and there are many rooms to gather and spread around. The collection of books is vast and diverse - from Harry Potter to Bhagavad Gita. Thank you Paul for sharing your wonderful home with us.

This house provides all the room and amenities we needed when our group (12 ladies) visited Chatham this spring. When we arrived the house was very clean and the owner had provided instructions for us. We cooked several evenings and the kitchen was well stocked (lots of plates, glasses, etc.). Lovely neighborhood; easy walk to Main St. and shopping. I would definitely recommend this home to a friend.

The house is absolutely fabulous, nothing short of amazing! Our family enjoyed how spacious this home away and the amazing location. It's an easy walk to all the shops and restaurants on Main Street of Chatham center as well as Lighthouse Beach. This house was very clean and was equipped with all the necessitates. I highly recommend it! We will be back!

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.
