About Paul McGrath

Visited Chatham for the first time in 1977--fell in love with the town and knew I would be back. After spending two and a half years looking found this very special house in a fabulous location close to the house we rented the year before. It was a three bedroom, 2 bath-since then we have done a 2,000 square foot addition adding 4 more rooms. Two more bedrooms, 2 more bathrooms and two more common rooms. This house holds SO many memories for my family and for the families of our many tenants. Both of my daughters were married in Chatham and had the wedding group at the house prior to. The house has hosted a 60th wedding anniversary, several 80th birthdays, many parents of the bride or groom pre wedding, and dozens of extended families gathering to create memories.

Paul McGrath purchased this house in 1982

Why Paul McGrath chose Chatham

The LOCATION! Quiet, private neighborhood, large lot with much room for outdoor activities. Add to that a 10 minute walk to Oyster Pond, a 15 minute walk to downtown. An after dinner walk down to Stage Harbor or a one mile bike ride to the Lighthouse Beach are added extras. The house has always been loved and it shows.

What makes this house unique


12 rooms--lots of space for families to spread out.

Four full baths plus an outside shower.

475 square foot roof deck with water views.

Three bedrooms on first floor, two on the second.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My hubsand and I want to thank you very much for sharing your lovely home with our family.

When the grandchildren weren't at the beach they were happy playing together on the expansive back lawn. The entire garden is beautiful and perfect for children and adults alike!

Again, our thanks to you and your wife.

Great house. Would definitely stay the again.

  • 5 of 5

This house provides all the room and amenities we needed when our group (12 ladies) visited Chatham this spring. When we arrived the house was very clean and the owner had provided instructions for us. We cooked several evenings and the kitchen was well stocked (lots of plates, glasses, etc.). Lovely neighborhood; easy walk to Main St. and shopping. I would definitely recommend this home to a friend.

Wonderful vacation home in a nice location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful property during Memorial Day weekend and had a great time. The house was well-equipped and there are many rooms to gather and spread around. The collection of books is vast and diverse - from Harry Potter to Bhagavad Gita. Thank you Paul for sharing your wonderful home with us.

Perfect for our golf group.

  • 5 of 5

This was the best house our gang of 12 has found. We're mostly seniors so we need comfortable beds and this beautiful home has 10 of them. Even the two additional sofa beds were good. Very good kitchen for our chefs, two gas grills, TVs everywhere, four full baths. And multiple sitting rooms with TVs so if you want to spread out in the evening there's plenty of room. A great vacation home!

The house is absolutely fabulous! The house is very comfortable and was able to sleep a lot of people. Our daughters wedding was last weekend and we were able to use the upstairs room for the bridesmaids and bride. I highly recommend it!
