Magnificent eight bedroom mansion from days gone by, designed by famous architect Edward Sears Read. Perched on a hill overlooking Chatham Harbor, North Beach, and the Atlantic Ocean beyond. Almost 300 feet of private sandy private beach described by an article in CNN as one of the top 9 secret beaches in NORTH AMERICA. Three acres of land has room for expansion, a guest house, a pool, and/or a tennis court. A true forever, family compound within an easy walk to downtown Chatham or Chatham Bars Inn. Must see the whole property, inside and out, to fully appreciate the surroundings, the privacy of the three acres, the 300 feet of beach, the eight bedrooms, the six fireplaces, and the miles of views to the north, south, and east. And what a spectacular, one of a kind property owned by the same family since the 1940’s…..Opinion of some people in town is that this is the nicest property in Chatham……You decide……
