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. Surrounded by water at the elbow of Cape Cod, Chatham is a unique and beautiful place like no other. Read more about Chatham real estate.

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.
