One of the shortest streets in Chatham has the most spectacular, sweeping ocean views in town.
When an oceanfront property popped up for sale in Chatham, it caught the eye of Aaron Polhemus, owner and CEO of the integrated architecture and construction firm Polhemus Savery DaSilva (PSD). He envisioned a classic beach house with an unobstructed, sweeping view of Chatham Harbor and the Atlantic beyond.
“This project was created as a custom home built for sale,” explains Polhemus. “PSD decided to get involved with this kind of project after viewing the incredible location.”
The lot had a small house and a garage on the site that PSD sought to remove and replace with a new house. The project goal was to design a house that fit into the neighborhood architecturally and took advantage of its spectacular site by the beach and the water.
“If we had designed a home in Chatham ourselves, this would have been it—it was like it was built for us,” say the new homeowners. “The day we decided to make our offer, we stood on the deck sipping our coffee as the early morning sun poured through the entire first floor and thought, ‘this is our dream home.’ It’s hard not to think the same thing every morning since we look out toward the water and the sunrise.”
