About the Property
Enjoy outstanding panoramic views of Nantucket Sound & the Atlantic, and Monomoy Islands from this 5000 square foot contemporary, whose 2 acre lot abuts Monomoy National Wildlife Refuge and all of its wonderful trails. The sunsets are breathtaking, and some of the best bass & shellfishing that the Cape has to offer is right out the back door! This newly renovated home has an open & airy feel to it with cathedral ceilings and skylights.The interior design is beautifully appointed with an Asian feel to the decorum . Stone floors, marble tabletops, Tibetan rugs, mosaic countertops and baths, wrought iron& leather furniture, paisley wallpapers and decorative finishes throughout make the interior of this home refreshingly unique. Located on remote Morris Island, one of the most desirable areas in all of Cape Cod (yes, you can drive there!).While there, you have the feeling of being 'away from it all,' when in reality you're only 1.5 miles away from the center of town.
The layout of the house is perfect for large groups, not only because of its size , but because of its expansive layout. There are 2 dining rooms, 3 large sitting areas on opposite sides of the home, which make it possible to have a quiet read or conversation in one area, while others can watch TV or get rowdy in another, without the noise being a distraction. The kitchen layout is large enough for cooking and conversation comfortably. There is an AGA gas stove and a large fridge and a separate large freezer . The large deck area(which has outdoor furniture that seats 16 people) also has a gas grill and just off the deck is a large rock wood burning firepit to enjoy on starlit nights. I should mention that since the deck faces west, the sunsets are amazing on any given night. There are also all kinds of board games and outdoor games stored for rainy days, and outside play. Beach chairs and towels are also provided.
Why Kids Love It
There are 2 bedrooms on the first floor , one with a queen and one with a full size bed , which share a full bath. There is also a half bath just off the kitchen.
On the second level there are 2 large bedrooms that share a full bath. Each bedroom has a queen bed with a private washroom and TV.
On the entire 3rd level is the master bedroom , which has 3 rooms: the bedroom which overlooks the Atlantic Ocean and Nantucket Sound , a sitting room with whirlpool bath , his and hers sinks and changing/make-up area, and the bathroom with commode and steam aromatherapy shower.
The laid-back lifestyle, sweeping beaches, and lush landscapes make the Cape a paradise to live in and visit, giving you the best of both worlds. And being surrounded by ocean, it has the mildest climate of all of New England in the winter and the most comfortable in the summer with it's built in air conditioning called 'ocean breezes'. During the colder months, you get the Cape's beauty all to yourself. One of the most magical times in Cape Cod is in September, where the Indian Summers are so unique and why so many artists and photographers come here to bask in the magical lighting.
Attractions Within Walking Distance
There is so much to do on the Cape , whether you are a naturalist, golfer, biker, angler, thespian, surfer, birder, art lover, history buff, pirate lover, etc., that you may find it hard to fit it all into your schedule. But even if you choose to do nothing but relax, you still have a lot of choices by remaining on Morris Island. You can surf cast and shell fish just steps from the back door. There are beautiful trails and sandy beaches to enjoy on the island....all without getting in a car. There are also 2 kayaks at the house(one a 2 seater and one an ocean kayak) that you are welcome to use. If you do decide to go off the island, there are many fabulous beaches close by.: the closest being Lighthouse Beach , which is a mile away. The Cape Cod Rail bike path is easily accessed with miles of asphalt trails that cover many towns. Live theater and music is present in every town , with concerts, musicals, and plays. And if you love baseball, you can watch the future star players . The Cape Cod Baseball League is a collegiate summer baseball wooden bat league . One of the nation's premier collegiate summer leagues, the league boasts over one thousand former players who have gone on to play in the majors.

Guestbook comments from the owner:
This is a beautiful, unique home located on Morris Island. Morris Island is connected to Chatham by a causeway and is close to the lighthouse. It has its own private beach and is in a very private location. It is, in my opinion, the area of Chatham with the nicest houses. The house is beautifully decorated and furnished, and I couldn’t complain of a thing. My stay here was everything I had hoped for and has been very memorable. The homeowner was very accommodating from day one and made me feel at ease about everything. I hope to return in the future.
Perfect, relaxing vacation! The location is exactly what I remember from childhood Cape Cod vacations. The sea air and breeze and cool evenings were amazing. The house is perfectly set back from the water's edge. Everything in the house was organized and ready to use. Great cook's kitchen, comfortable family space and quiet bedrooms (we all slept like puppies). Just what my family and I needed. Will return to this gorgeous home for years to come.
My family had vacationed on the Cape for several years and this past summer we decided to rent a larger home than usual and split the rental cost with another family. Of course, it was twice as expensive than what we normally had rented, but we needed the extra room and in reality the house was 3 times the size of the houses that we had rented in the past. It was worth the extra expense on so many levels. First of all, when we arrived, all of the beds were made up beautifully as if we were checking in at a hotel or bed and breakfast. In the past, we had to bring our own linens and in some cases towels as well. Well there was an abundance of everything on this property. Beach towels, beach chairs, umbrellas, lawn games, children's games, even kayaks! Even the kitchen had every kitchen gadget you could ever want, and every spice, as well. We also had what we laughingly called a 'walk in" style refrigerator which was perfect for 2 families. The house was huge enough for us to be able to enjoy each other's company without feeling crowded. Plenty of bathrooms, so no one was ever waiting to shower, and did I mention that the location was breathtaking? By splitting the cost with another family it ended up costing us less than our previous vacations, but the entire experience was 'priceless'.
What a lovely, comfortable home, and the owners match !
We stayed here for 2 weeks a few years back and our friends still talk about this wonderful place. The views are of coves, sand and the sea. From the master bedroom you could see the stars, and lights from the lighthouse at night. In the morning you could make out clammers through the early fog in the cove. We would have returned, but finally bought our piece of the Cape Cod dream !!
