Chatham Real Estate

Chatham is an upscale resort town occupying the southeast “elbow” of Cape Cod. Originally a prosperous fishing and whaling center, Chatham still is home to many 18th century buildings which add to its charm. Some of the most sought after properties are renovated captains’ homes that take advantage of the harbor and ocean views.

The town offers six saltwater beaches fronting Nantucket Sound and the Atlantic Ocean and is perhaps best known for the Chatham Lighthouse Beach.

Chatham Community Summary

This pristine expanse of sand is famed for nature walks out to Monomoy Island as well as views of the daily migration routes of Chatham seals.   At the heart of the beach, is the much photographed Chatham Light -- an active lighthouse at the Coast Guard Station that aids in the navigation of Chatham Waters.

Chatham is also well known for its pedestrian-friendly downtown which provides a myriad of shops, galleries, restaurants and inns.  During the summer, residents enjoy concerts in the gazebo on Main Street.  Distinctive boutiques specializing in antiques, resort clothing,  fine art, jewelry, and nautical treasures provide nearly one mile of shopping.  Seafood restaurants are also popular destinations fueled by the abundance of fresh catch.  The elegant Chatham Bars Inn provides spectacular water views and a Gatsby-like setting for tourists and residents alike.  

For many residents, Chatham is a year-round community offering a “First Night” during the holiday season as well as the “Spring Fling” fashion show in May to benefit various charitable organizations.
Chatham is bordered by Harwich to the west, Pleasant Bay and Orleans to the north, the Atlantic Ocean to the east and Nantucket Sound to the south.  Villages include Chatham proper, Chatham Port, North Chatham, West Chatham, and South Chatham.   Approximately 34 miles east of the Sagamore Bridge, Chatham is 85 miles southeast of Boston.
