Description

Description

It's all about LOCATION-just steps from deeded access to the Mill Pond where you can launch your Kayak without ever having to put it on your car. This spacious and well appointed home is just off of the LOOP in a sought after private neighborhood. The Marina and Yacht Clubs are a short distance away with Main Street and Oyster Pond nearby. This house is not just a traditional rental it is a home where memories are made. Over the years it has been the venue for special wedding anniversary years e.g.,--40th, 50th and in one case 60th as well as those milestone birthdays up to and including the 90th. In addition many families of the bride or groom when in town for their destination wedding have stayed here for all of the last minute preparations. Read the reviews--extended families LOVE this place. The interior of this home has just recently been painted throughout.
The minute you pass through the entry door you will find the fully equipped well appointed Chef's kitchen with its cherry cabinets, Bosch and Electrolux stainless steel appliances, and wet bar.
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 (equipped with a Roku, and Netflix and Amazon Prime subscriptions). There is also a table for dining, card playing or putting a puzzle together. This room is a magnet for gathering and overlooks the patio and backyard.

The adjacent large brick patio is perfect for al fresco dining.The three outside tables can be arranged to comfortably accommodate 12. Or you can sip your morning coffee on the lounge chairs and catch up on your emails or just relax and watch nature..

From the sunroom, you can also step up into the formal dining room for eating or for more card playing or puzzles. From there you enter one of the four large common rooms. This first common 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 and read one of the books on hand.

When heading for the three first floor bedrooms and two baths you will pass the cozy den on your left (the second common room) with its queen sleep sofa, pocket doors and flat screen TV. The pocket doors provide privacy if the need arises this room can be used as a quasi sixth bedroom.

There are four more rooms on the first floor.

The first floor Principle 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 while vacationing. The study overlooks the second patio and the gardens at the rear of the home. This can be utilized as a family suite or can be perfect for a couple wishing to have their own private space.

There are two other bedrooms on the first floor-one has two twin beds and one has a queen and a twin. These bedrooms 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. NOTE: Bene queen bed has been added to twin bedroom-picture shows two twins-actual is a twin and a queen.

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 (refrigerator included), and views of the water. There is a set of regular stairs leading up to the 475 square foot roof deck. The Great Room has numerous 6 foot long windows overlooking the yard and gardens as well as sliders out to a cozy balcony (great place for meditating). It is equipped with a large flat screen smart TV. There are tables for game playing or dining. Perfect spot for entertaining or chilling out.

At the other end of the floor is the magnificent second floor Principle Bedroom with its BRAND NEW KING BED (not pictured), private sitting area (that is also a full-size sleep sofa) and your own very special black and white marble and granite bath. The bath has a cast iron soaking tub and a rainforest shower. This room is perfect for the bride to be and her attendants for the last minute preparations prior to the wedding. A number of brides have stayed here including my own two daughters.

The second bedroom on this level has a queen size and a twin size bed as well as ample closet space. and a beautiful outside view. Both bedrooms on this floor have room darkening drapes.

There is a fourth bath off of the hallway that services the bedroom as well as general guests.

The easily accessible roof deck has reclining chairs for sunning and three tables that seat twelve. From here there are water views-sometimes as far as the Atlantic. There are also views of the Mill Pond the Mitchell River, the drawbridge and portions of Stage Harbor.

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 awa

    #4558: Best Possible Family Vacation Home

    My family was lucky to vacation in this home during 3 summers. Why: each family unit has its own great, full bath and spacious bedroom; the home has the best location -10 minute walk to either picturesque Oyster Pond Beach, spectacular Chatham Lighthouse or to the robust, quaint Chatham Center. The home is in a well landscaped, spaced out, quiet neighborhood.
    There are water views from the second floor balcony and the roof deck. The home has amazing furnishings and is so well appointed with impressive art and paintings displayed in all rooms. Each room has a TV. In 50 + years of vacationing around the country, this home offers the best of everything!!

    Owner Paul is a compassionate, proud professional who works tirelessly to provide the best vacation experience for families. EXCELLENT accommodations all around!!! My family could not be happier!

    Vacation home for large family group

    Very nice home in a location convenient ( walking distance) to Chatham Center and Mill Pond, well maintained and clean.
    Owner is very easy to deal with and is accessible and responsive to any issues which arise.
    The house is great for a large family vacation. It sleeps approximately 15 people, and has 4 separate sitting areas to easily accommodate varying interests ( table games, card games, watching sports events, children activities vs adult interests).
    Dining room and large table in adjacent sunroom to facilitate large family dining.
    Good backyard for games, patio for sunbathing, sitting and BBQ.
    All family members (11) found beds to be comfortable.( In our experience that is often not the case with vacation rentals. ). The neighborhood is quiet.
    We recommend this home and will likely return in the very near future.

    Our 3rd year

    This was our 3rd year here. This is the perfect home for a gathering of extended family of all ages. Enough bedrooms and baths for everyone to have some privacy. The location is superb! We walk into town in the morning and walk to Oyster Pond for a day at the beach. The location is great for bike rides to Lighthouse Beach and Monomoy Wildlife Refuge. Everyone enjoyed the home, the patio and the yard. Paul is the most helpful and communicative landlord and just a pleasure to work with. We will be returning next year! show more show less

    Family fun

    The home offered us a place to spread out, play games, cook, BBQ , ride bikes and just relax. This week brought us an opportunity to bring our daughter from NYC, son from Boston and our son from CT all together with their families. The cousin crew ages 1 through 7 had a blast. Our last night we toasted our good fortune on the rooftop deck. This was our first extended family vacation and we hope to repeat it again next year.

    Wonderful Family Memories

    We rented Paul's house last week and had such a wonderful week! We are a family of 8 adults and 2 babies and the house was absolutely perfect for the size of our group. There was something for everyone - large spaces to play games and enjoy meals together; and also quiet spaces for those that needed to step away and do some work, read a book, or meditate. The kitchen was fabulous and well stocked for the chefs in the family. The grounds and outdoor space were beautiful, and we loved relaxing, enjoying the views, and watching the sunset in the evenings from the expansive roof deck.

    We thoroughly appreciated the location of Paul's home. We enjoyed daily morning walks on "the loop" - an easy walk into town to get coffee and breakfast and stop at lighthouse beach before looping back to the house. The location was perfect as a home base for either walking or a quick drive to lighthouse beach or oyster pond (awesome for kids!), or trips into town for shopping, dining, and ice cream.

    Check in was extremely easy and Paul was very responsive. The information booklet was very comprehensive. The house was immaculate when we arrived and everyone was in total awe and excitement over the space. We had no issues at all during our stay.

    As a family that grew up staying in Chatham in the summer with our grandparents, it was a very special week to re-live our memories and share them with our next generation. We can't wait to rent Paul's home again! The house far exceeded our expectations.

    Blissed out!

    Can't say enough good things about our two-week stay at the house. Great setup for those times you want to be all together - and those you don't :-0 Hardest decision was usually which of the many "living areas" one wanted to hang out in. I personally gravitated to the very sunny room off the Kitchen looking out on the beautiful yard!

    The house is super well-appointed and Paul (the homeowner) couldn't have been more helpful before, during and after our stay. Love the location – a short walk to Oyster Pond and not much further to town. Looking forward to gathering again next year! show more show less

    A Wonderful House

    It's a rare thing to find a house that can comfortably accommodate a family of ten. This property offers plenty of space (for gathering and for solitude), a well-equipped kitchen with gas range for dining in, and a great location for venturing out. The heating worked very well against the winter weather. (We even had flurries one morning!)

    Throughout the rental process, Paul was kind and communicative. He answered all our questions, no problem. I'm so glad we were able to spend our Christmas here! show more show less

    Wonderful vacation

    This home and homeowner were fabulous. There were 8 of us and plenty of rooms to spread out !! We walked every day towards the water, or into the charming town of Chatham. It's beautiful there and the house was the cleanest home we have rented ever!

    Thanks Paul, for making our friends and family getaway so easy to plan,
    Debbie

    Great place for a group to spend the week

    We just finished an awesome week at Paul's place. The house was beautiful in a PERFECT location with every amenity we could need. Paul was super helpful and was great with communication. I would recommend the space to anyone!

    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.
