Minutes from historic downtown Chatham and Lighthouse
Beach, a timeless waterview home steps onto the stage for
the first time in more than two decades.
513 Stage Harbor Road
At over 500 miles of coastline, and draped in the grand necklace that is the Atlantic, Cape Cod is home to some of the finest real estate on the East Coast. With fifteen towns, numerous villages, and two famed islands known as Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket, this graceful, hooked peninsula is steeped in American history and seafaring legends. Visitors and locals agree - if there was ever a possibility that a place could have a soul, this windswept arm reaching into the Atlantic lays claim to such an essence. If you yearn to be part of the Cape, then you are in luck, because for the first time in 24 years a stunning piece of this iconic landscape is for sale in Chatham. I had the privilege of getting a sneak peek of the home while it was being photographed, courtesy of listing agent Kate Conway.
Known to the owners as Southern Breeze, 513 Stage Harbor Road in Chatham sits on a lush and private two acres of land overlooking saltwater inlet, Mill Pond, and the dozens of sailboats that set out from their moorings towards Monomoy and Nantucket Sound. Offering four generous bedrooms in the main house, each with private baths, and another two bedrooms in the guest house with private office, this Federal-style Colonial is an entertainer’s dream.
Enter through the front porch and be treated to a glittering view of the water through three sets of French doors. Dueling staircases frame the open, airy living room which leads to a covered back deck and the rolling lawn beyond. The large, fireplaced dining room captures the view and can easily seat twenty, while the chef’s kitchen with a second fireplace leads to a stone patio for dining al fresco while admiring the boats and drawbridge. A den with a third fireplace and bedroom with private bath ensures that anyone can enjoy their time in the home without traversing stairs.
On the second floor, the Cupola Room, currently used as a library, is radiant with expansive views across Mill Pond. A ladder leading up into the cupola itself is an ideal spot for tucking in with a blanket and book while you survey the stunning landscape and the dunes of Lighthouse Beach beyond. A generous master bedroom with private bath resides on the southside of the home, ensuring privacy, while two more junior suites are situated to the north.
Wander across the stone driveway to the guest house, where an office is a perfect spot to channel the inspiring views into the next great novel, while the second floor offers space for guests with two bedrooms and private bathroom. As the sun sets, and the sky evolves into purples and pinks, grab a kayak from your three-car garage with boat storage and head down to the water to become one with nature as you paddle out into the harbor to watch the sky evolve.
Whether you are looking for a vacation home, to retire, to invest, or to relocate, Southern Breeze embraces all it is to live the true Cape Cod life in a landscape often called “Heaven on Earth.”
