A rare protected saltwater property near the heart of town, Windmill Cottage enjoys direct access by its own beach plum-lined path to Chatham's signature Lighthouse Beach. Stroll out your front door to swimming, birdwatching, fishing, shell collecting, and salty walks -- never thinking about beach parking again! Short hop to Chatham Light, Stage Harbor, and Main Street (Fourth of July parade, Friday night band concerts, the Squire), this classic rose-covered, 4-bedroom Cape offers a forever-preserved vista across the tranquil waters of Chatham Harbor to the pristine outer beach. Nothing but dunes, ocean, and sky. Built for laidback coastal living with a flagstone-floored screened porch, a charming windmill (after which the home's private lane is named), steady sea breezes, and views that cannot be found anywhere else in the world. Engineering & septic designed to allow you to make it your own piece of paradise.
