Chatham Enclave, Now Coastal Estate

81 Fairview Avenue, Chatham MA

81 Fairview Avenue, Chatham MA

The gorgeous coastal town of Chatham, MA is one of the Cape Cod’s most sought after destinations, both for year-round living and summer escapes. Surrounded by water on three sides, Chatham’s unique coastline allows for endless boating, swimming, wind surfing and sunbathing. Additionally, Chatham’s Main Street offers some of the finest dining, shopping, and entertainment opportunities on Cape Cod.

Cottage Colony Transformed

Located in this charming New England town is the property at 81 Fairview Avenue. Originally part of a cottage colony built in 1957, 81 Fairview Avenue was purchased in 1967 and continued as a cottage colony called Fore ‘n Aft until 2011. This unique piece of land housed many cottages that were available year-round and boasted one of the only cottage colonies with a water view on Cape Cod.

In 2011, the original buildings were torn down, and the property was renovated and transformed into a new main house and guest house. Due to the Cape’s fragile eco-structure and protected coastline, housing codes have become much stricter in recent years, limiting construction in certain waterfront areas. Fortunately, because the original buildings dated back to 1957, the property was not affected by new codes.

Today, the main house and guest house feature breathtaking architecture, as well as unsurpassed views of the marsh and Nantucket Sound. The open floor plan, expansive decks, and comfortable living spaces make this home perfect for entertaining a large group of family and friends or quietly relaxing on a Sunday morning  with coffee, a croissant, and a good book.
