Fisherman sorting and binning the local catch at the Chatham pier has been captured by photographers, in films and by thousands of people that visit the busy hub each year. The benefit of living along the Atlantic means that the diversity of sea life is always freshest on your plate. The town has blossomed in recent years, attracting new galleries and boutiques, however, there continues to be a struggle for a more diverse and greater selection of restaurants. This summer, with the sale of the Chatham staple, Marley’s Restaurant, Chatham may be able to aid these issues, bringing new interest to the area, as well as, to extend the communities interest in fresh, local foods.
The popular Chatham eatery that went on the market in February, is not simply an opportunity for a restaurateur to make a statement in the upscale, central Chatham area. It will also, give residents and visitors new reason to stay local when dining out.
If you’re thinking of visiting: the restaurant is located on Rt. 28 in Chatham at 1077 Main Street.
Chatham has known luxury. The town has welcomed the entrance of high-end boutiques into the early turn of the century, renovated antique homes, manicured lawns and chic alcoves. Though subtly charming, Chatham has remained a playground for affluence. Local resorts include a collection of the worlds most high living hotels often encouraging annual visitors to purchase homes in the area. Chatham, however, is about to see the debut of its first Luxury Townhome community.
Queen Anne Living Townhomes will be built upon the 170 year old grounds of what currently resides the Queen Anne Inn. Once a private residence built in 1897, the inn was transformed to its current state in 1979 by hotelier Gunther Weinkopf. While expansive, the townhome community will only include seven, private addresses. Talk about exclusivity.
Since 2004, Chatham’s historical boards have been granting prizes to those property owners that maintain historic residences in the old town in Chatham, Massachusetts. A great selection of the homes, largely constructed around the turn of the century, require recent stabilization and restructuring. The Chatham Preservation Awards have been em placed to acknowledge those homeowners which have maintained the “architectural significance of the property during the project, preserved or replicated historic materials, and projected a high quality of craftsmanship. The project must also, significantly impact the preservation of the town’s historic fabric, neighborhoods and resources.”
