Part of the appeal of a Cape Cod retirement community is Cape Cod itself. With plenty of beaches, beautiful nature, and distinctive architecture, the area is notoriously charming and picturesque. Southport, one of the premier active retirement communities in the area, features seven Cape Cod-style homes with unique features and distinctive floor plans, set amid beautifully manicured grounds. Each home is built with active seniors in mind, with a variety of one and two-story home designs, including The Chatham.
The Chatham is a two-story home with a total of 1,657 square feet. The first floor covers 1,201 square feet and provides the majority of the daily living space, including the master bedroom suite. The second story is 456 square feet with a loft area, bathroom, and bedroom, perfect for visiting family and friends. The second story also looks onto the living area below, creating an open, spacious feel to the home.
The home has two bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms, as well as a spacious garage, a front porch and a side deck. Having the main living and sleeping quarters all on the first floor makes the home much more navigable and easy to live in on a day-to-day basis. There are no stairs to climb throughout the day; even the laundry room is located just off the master bathroom for easy access.
The home’s interior is as attractive as its traditional Cape Cod exterior. There is a spacious front entry accented by framing windows, as well as beautiful hardwood floors running throughout the first level, including the entry, the dining room, living room, and kitchen. The kitchen features granite countertops and an abundance of cabinet space. In the living room, there is a wonderful flush-mounted fireplace with a marble surround that really adds to the character and comfort of the home.
The master bedroom has large windows that offer plenty of natural light. There are also two walk-in closets that connect the bedroom to the master bathroom. The bathroom includes a two-sink vanity so there is no shortage of space.
